Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

For­get wrin­kles, skin ir­ri­ta­tions are one of our big­gest beauty anx­i­eties and it seems sen­si­tiv­ity is on the rise. A re­cent study by Lancôme found that two in three women suf­fer some form of flare-up at least once a year. But what to do when your go-to creams won’t cut it? Thank­fully, a clan of calmers are here to stop the itch/scratch cy­cle and soothe an­gry ar­eas ASAP.

la Roche-posay’s lat­est break­through is also ge­nius. One of the big­gest is­sues with eczema is the dreaded itch­ing.

Con­cern: Red­ness

Feel­ing flushed? a rosy face tends to be a dead give­away that you’re deal­ing with stressed skin. Just like the name sug­gests (5) REN Ever­calm Anti-red­ness Serum, £29, will ward off pink patches. it strength­ens cap­il­lary walls, boosts good bac­te­ria and pro­tects it from fur­ther en­vi­ron­men­tal harm so that your skin’s bet­ter equipped to beat the blush.
