Put Blushing and Flushing in Their Place

One thing (among the many things) I love about Clinique is the variety of product lines designed specifically to treat real skin concerns. There's a system for acne, products that erase dark spots and a relatively new line which helps to neutralize redness.

13 million people in the US alone suffer from rosacea; a condition characterized by persistent redness, broken capillaries and small papules that can be mistaken for acne. There are even more people that suffer from occasional redness that can be triggered when they're in hot environments or eat spicy food. There are so many people who can benefit from Clinique's Redness Solutions line which includes a cleanser, a moisturizer and a daily protective base containing SPF 15. Though these products can't cure rosacea or persistent redness they can help to sooth they skin by repairing the moisture barrier and protecting against sun damage.

Along with skincare the Redness Solutions line contains a few cosmetic products to help to cover and conceal redness while still being good for skin. The Instant Relief yellow-tinted Mineral Powder was the first product release and a pressed powder version is currently being featured on counter. But for the girl who prefers a liquid makeup there's Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology. And to conceal those stubborn red spots there's the Redness Solutions Targeted Corrector.
The foundation comes in 6 shades each with an appropriate undertone to both neutralize redness and match skin tone. Combined with moderate coverage and a comfortable feel this foundation does so much more than just cover. It's an oil-free formula and it's important to note that if you're a redness sufferer you should stay away from products with oil as oils can actually exasperate redness and irritate skin. It also contains SPF 15 which protects delicate skin against sun damage. Finally, it contains probiotics which help to strengthen and repair skin's moisture barrier and improve the overall look of skin.

The targeted corrector is a yellow-toned creamy concealer that further neutralizes the look of redness. Also oil-free this product is perfect for covering those red papules associated with rosacea, broken capillaries and even plain-old pimples. I also use it under foundation to lighten the darkness under my eyes! It's the perfect multitasker to go along with your Redness Solutions Makeup.

Redness Solutions Foundation retails for $30 and the Targeted Corrector is $25.

What do you have planned for this week? I've got laundry on my to-do list for tomorrow :)
