Excessive scrubbing and washing to remove and prevent breakouts can sometimes do more harm than good if you’re a little overzealous. Gently wash away small pimples and blemishes that leave a reddish tone on your skin twice each day. Use a wash cloth, warm water and a mild cleanser designed for sensitive skin to help the acne heal and remove remaining red marks from those pesky pimples. Blot your face dry with a soft, microfiber towel to soothe irritated, blotchy skin.
Breakouts can leave your skin dry, scabby and blotchy. Remedy the leftover red marks by indulging in a little TLC. Soothe and tone down reddish marks by lathering your face with an oil-free moisturizer. Products with lanolin and petrolatum work best to restore your silky skin and soothe irritated facial skin.
Treat and Tint
Pat on a thin layer of acne-medicated concealer to reddish areas of your face to minimize marks and treat pimples that just won’t leave. For bright red marks, try applying a yellow or green-tinted medicated concealer to neutralize your skin tone. Gently apply an oil-free liquid foundation and a few puffs of loose powder to prepare your face for a day at the office or a night out on the town.
Seek Professional Advice
When red marks from acne continue to invade, it may be time to discuss professional treatments with a physician. A dermatologist may prescribe topical creams, oral antibiotics to treat severe acne or perform laser light therapy in the office. With a small laser, a doctor can remove and minimize the appearance of red marks by targeting prominent blood vessels under the skin. Always discuss potential side effects before treatment, especially if your skin is dry and sensitive.
