We’ve all been there. One day your skin is completely fine, and the next morning it looks like something out of a horror movie. Whether it’s an unfortunate allergic reaction to something mysterious, a surprise breakout on your chin, or some ruddiness that doesn’t seem to want to budge, there’s no easy way around the fact that your skin is simply freaking out. The good news is that we have some solutions for your serious skin woes. Here’s what to do when…
You try your best to handle your lip game. And usually it’s pretty easy to keep them moist, but during the colder months of the year your skin—including your lips—has a mind of its own. To the rescue comes Glo Skin Beauty Lip Revival ($25.99). This high-impact treatment is formulated to drench lips with moisture and improve moisture levels so that your lips stay softer for longer. Use it at night to obtain lasting results.
Your Acne Scars Are In Effect
Acne scars don’t just develop overnight, but if you’ve just recovered from a serious breakout there’s a good chance you’re dealing with some lingering pigmentation issues. Bid farewell to that dark spot by applying SkinCeuticals Phyto+ ($78.99), a highly effective lightening gel enriched with natural ingredients designed to gently lighten skin in the areas that need it most. It’s free of hydroquinone, too, which means it’s great even for the most sensitive skin types.
Winter has a habit of wreaking havoc on the skin, and it often seems like no matter how much you treat it you can’t quite stay on top of all of the dryness. The Revision Skincare Hydrating Serum ($55.99) makes an amazing addition to any dry-skin routine. Don’t be fooled by its lightweight consistency; it’s loaded with moisturizing ingredients that flood your skin with hydration and give it a plump, healthy finish. Use it before bed to combat dryness and signs of premature aging.
Your Skin Is Bright Red
There’s nothing like waking up, refreshed from a great night’s sleep, only to discover that your complexion resembles Rudolph’s nose. While it’s tempting to just slather on several layers of makeup and go about your day, that won’t exactly solve the problem in the long run. Treat your ruddiness with La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 ($11.99). It’s formulated to gently heal even the most sensitive skins, even those recovering from procedures or suffering from dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.
Your Acne Is Out of Control
Stubborn acne is an annoying skin woe that can often seem insurmountable. Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots ($21.99) are infused with salicylic acid and tea tree oil and are designed to target only the skin that’s affected. This helps reduce the telltale dryness that many acne medications cause, while effectively treating even the most difficult blemishes. Wear them throughout the night, or during the day if you don’t plan to leave the house.
