SkinMedica Redness Relief Giveaway

You all know that we do like to brag about our fabulous brands on DermStore. We’re also positive and dedicated to providing a skin care regimen for every skin type and condition. One of our top ranked brands, SkinMedica is just what the doctor ordered for anyone that suffers from skin redness, dryness, Rosacea and aging. Does that single you out? Of course not, SkinMedica offers a broad range of amazingly formulated products that serve any skin concern. Let’s take you back and explore what this brand is all about and why it’s more than lovable.

SkinMedica was founded more than 10 years ago by dermatologist Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, who was dedicated in making sure that his patients had access to first-class ingredients and formulations. SkinMedica offers a full line of extremely high-quality skin care products that employ  proven skin rejuvenators such as vitamins E and C, retinol, tea tree oil and salicylic acid to help attain healthier, more youthful skin with the help of their  superior formulations.

It’s hard to find regimens and skin care products that can truly actualize results and with SkinMedica’s TNS Recovery Complex System, they’ve done just that. This pioneering skin care product is the first one ever offered that contains TNS, a patented cocktail of naturally occurring proteins, amino acids, and antioxidants your body will utilize to help your skin recover from sun damage and the effects of aging. SkinMedica‘s TNS Recovery Complex System has received the prestigious Allure Magazine’s Editor’s choice award, and was mentioned on Oprah as an alternative to plastic surgery. And who will defy Oprah’s judgement?

The month of April is Rosacea month along with earth month and many of you probably don’t think that affects a lot of the county. Rosacea is very common and mainly affects the skin on your face. It can cause redness, inflammation and discoloration on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. Over time, it may worsen and blood vessels may become apparently visible. Rosacea is a commonly misunderstood skin disorder that in fact, affects over 16 million Americans. Worst part is, most of them don’t know it and don’t know how to recognize the conditions nor know what to do about it. Being dedicated to skin care ourselves, we are here to help and we’re introducing you to SkinMedica’s wonder products .

Have redness or Rosacea or even sensitive skin? Have a beauty secret your mother told you to help with redness? Tell us about it!

    Briana- I hope that you will try SkinMedica’s Sensitive Skin Cleanser and let me know what you think- it is incredibly soothing and calming on the most sensitive of skins, including post- procedure.
    Lina- So happy that your plastic surgeon has you on TNS Recovery Complex! It is definitely a critical part of the sensitive or visibly red skin regimen. I hope you will try Redness Relief CalmPlex over top as your moisturizer, and let me know what you think! My boyfriend also has his TNS routine… why do they always want what we are loving?!
    Carol P- So happy that you are a fan of TNS Essential Serum- this product is SkinMedica’s top seller and definitely has quite a following! Many of our physician partners call it their “laser in a bottle”! That is a bold statement. I personally refer to it as the Rolls-Royce of skincare. ;)

    Sunscreen is VITAL not just for treating the rosacea but for overall skin health, so I am pretty diligent about this. I also use cold compresses, which feel great! I have been dying to try the Skinmedica TNS Recovery Complex-I have not yet tried this only because of the cost. But from what I read, it is SO worth it. I am currently using the 15% AHA-BHA Face Cream and would love to also try at some point the Redness Relief CalmPlex.

It doesn’t seem right that you would have to avoid the three things you love. I was told by my physician roseacea is so common with red haired, fair skinned people. Guess that made him feel better to tell me that but it doesn’t get rid of my red face. HELP ME

    The products I use now are from the Rosacea Care brand. They are the Ultra Mild cleanser and Strontium calming lotion. Both work fairly well,although I’d like to see if the SkinMedica products would work even better. For makeup I use L’Oreal True Match Naturale mineral makeup. Works pretty good, although as I’ve gotten older, it seems to show those darm pesky lines more. Also, I avoid extreme hot or cold foods, extreme hot or cold outside temperatures and spices. I’ve had rosacea now for 20 years and it’s only been the last few years that more products and medications have become available that actually work. Oracea works wonders for me. Way back in 1991 there weren’t any makeup lines specially made to help heal and cover rosacea. It’s great to know that now many makeup companies are seeing that there is a very real need to help all of us who suffer and struggle with rosacea and just want to try and have clear skin. BTW…Suoer giveaway package! Thanks and Good Luck to all.

    I am a redhead who burns just thinking about the beach. Within 5 minutes of being in the sun, I develop red bumps on all the exposed parts of my body which first itch like crazy, causing me to scratch and scratch until my skin begins to bleed and then my skin is excruciatingly painful.About 10 years ago, I went on a vacation to Jamaica and did a very stupid thing. It was raining on and off all day, I lay on a chaise lounge and fell asleep for a couple of hours. When I woke up, my face was a bright red and by that evening, I was shaking and had developed a fever. Within a day or so, my facial skin had literally turned into a sheet of leather. An Islander saw me and took pity on me. He climbed up a tree and with a huge machete, cut a huge green thick leaf off the tree, gave it to me,cut the end off and rubbed this clear, gooey stuff all over my face. He told me to keep this leaf in the frig all the time and to have my face covered with it all the time, round the clock. He met me in front of my hotel 3 times a day, rubbed this goop over my face, cut down new leaves from the tree and gave them to me to refrigerate. This continued for 12 days. By day 4, this leathery skin simply wiped off and by the time I left, by day 14, my skin looked beautiful,no freckles, no redness, and actually, as an added benefit, all my lines had disappeared. I asked him what this goop was and he told me it was fresh aloe cut right from the tree in its most natural state, no additives, no preservatives, just aloe from Mother nature. When I got back to the states and went to my dermatologist, he thought I had cheated on him and had a face peel with another doctor. He did a number of tests to check the damage to the inner skin and lucky for me, I had none which was hard to believe. He was shocked to learn that it was pure aloe that I had applied to this terrible burn because if I had gone to him with the same burn, he would have prescribed medicine that would never have had the same wonderful results as the fresh aloe. He told me that I was extremely lucky because without the aloe and the kindness from this complete stranger who took pity on me,(and who refused to accept a penny for meeting me 3 times a day and nursing me back to health), my face would have been severely permanently scarred for life. Now, whenever I start seeing patches of redness on my face, I go to whole foods and purchase a branch off the aloe tree, refrigerate it and apply a thick layer to my face every few hours for a day or so, staying indoors. By day 2, all the redness is gone and it usually wards off another attack for several months. The more often I use it, the longer it is between attacks. For me, pure aloe vera right off the tree is the best remedy for treating redness of the skin. At least it worked for me!

    I’ve suffered with rosacea, along with acne since i was 11 years old and didn’t realize what it was until about 17 years old. I believe it developed when my hormones started taking action. I’ve tried all kinds of products for redness, acne and it’s gone away some over the years but is still present in my face. I improved my diet hoping it’ll reflect through my skin, which has helped. I have yet to find a product to really make me see and feel a difference.

    I use a yogurt mask when I have a lot of redness and also watch my life and habits for triggers (like spicy foods and high stress). I use a clarisonic with delicate brushhead (instead of a washcloth) and a very mild cleanser like Dove. Relaxation is key to controlling redness, so I really focus on meditating, deep breathing, etc. to try to heal and calm myself when I have reactive skin.

    I have been doing an oil cleanse every other night for the past week. I massage a mixture of 30% castor oil and 70% grapeseed oil (EVOO or almond oil can sub for grapeseed) into my skin for 10 minutes. Lay a warm washcloth over my face for a minute, then after it cools, use it to gently wipe the oil off my face. Then I massage a few drops of argan oil into my face. I had very oily skin as a child and now have combination skin, so I was hesitant to try this method. The redness started to go away almost immediately. In just one week my skin looks so much better that I no longer have to use a heavy foundation to try to cover up all the redness. My skin looks better than it has in years.

    I have found using a gentle foaming cleanser, with temid water helps to clean without feeling tight. I however get the acne like symptoms that go along with this which depending on how bad can be controled with a Sulfa based presecription that I use nightly. I find that I have to use serum based moistirizers to get these breakouts at a minimum. Otherwise a prescription of Doxycycline for a week usually does the trick for a few months

As much as we all love the sun, it is the worst possible thing for your skin! I use TNS and love it! The only problem I had with it was that I had to use a separate sunscreen, because it SO important girls of all ages! Problem solved!

    My redness is usually a sympton of over treatment,red wine and foods I have sensitivities to. I use cold water, ice and chilled yogurt and then will let my skin rest after applying a calming lotion/gel before putting on makeup. Drinking green tea seems to lessen the heat within as well.

    Being very fair in complexion, I always have to battle redness for some reason or another. In the summer, the heat and sun trigger my redness. In the winter, dryness and wind trigger it. For summer I have found that aloe based products really help, especially alcohol-free aloe toner sprays even throughout the day! In the winter, I slather on the moisturizers. Even if it’s a bit overkill, it makes my makeup look dewy and fresh!

    For my redness and rosacea + dry skin, I found the best way to treat it is with a gentle cleanser (I am currently loving Obagi Rosaclear), apply a soothing and calming toner (I absolutely love Bioelements Calmitude Hydrating Solution – its ultrcalming extracts instantly relieve dehydration), followed by a Vitamin C serum in the day to strengthen the capillaries and Revaleskin Night Cream with Coffeeberry antioxidant at night. Of course, sunscreen is a must of at least SPF 30. Right now I am using Colorscience mineral powder in Perfect Medium. It has enough tint in it for me to even out the redness on most days.
    3 times a week I use a Clarisonic brush in the shower, paying close attention to my chin, nose and forehead where most of the congestion is.

    My grandmother had rosecea, my mom has and and so do I – it’s so annoying!
    Well my grandmother always said to use water on face. A lot of cool water when washing face.
    I can add to that: I use only products without fragrance or added color. I refrain from saunas and I’m very careful in the sun.
    With all this – it’s such a pain! I never really have it under control.

    I have had lately a terrible red face after washing with just water. I went to my Derm. and he told me to take bleach baths for my skin, it has worked with medications, but I would love to get some new skin care products for my specific skin care condition. Thanks.

    I find that being a minimalist with makeup helps with redness. Also, willow herb and tea tree oil are good ingredients for my acne redness.

    Sometimes I use the lining of chamomile tea. Cold chamomile tea bag compresses can alleviate some symptoms. It’s a cheap solution to quell rosacea. Sure, I’d try SkinMedica solution.

    Metrogel or cream seems to do it for me. I also had kryotherapy for a couple of years in my younger days and that was a wonderful fix.

    1. staying out of the sun in daytime (as much as possible)
    2. being extremely gentle with cleansing (using cleansing water instead of a foaming cleanser if necessary) not using hot water on the face (lukewarm at most, but actually cooler water is more helpful)
    3. gel textures are calming rather than thick creams
    4. as natural as possible. (stay away from sls, and parabens if possible)

    Minimal makeup.
    In the long run, heavy makeup will only make redness worse. You’ll have to work harder to remove it, which causes more irritation. So focus on good skincare and you’ll need less makeup. I use a yellow based concealer around the nose and in strategic areas of the face and chin. Rosy gals don’t need blush, so focus on concealing properly instead of color. You don’t need to use a lot of concealer but using it properly will really brighten up the face.

    I was using Avene products till Skin Medica came out with the redness relief. I bought it as soon as it came out and it really works. Not only on rosacea, but it removed redness from my husbands face after shaving. I also decided to try it on a rash that comes and goes on crease of arm and it cleared it up so no more topical steroids for me. I’m on my 2nd jar,it really does work!

    Hydrocortisone cream seems to work well for redness…you just can’t use it for a long time.

    I forgot to include before Avene I was using topical antibiotic lotion which cleared up acne but not redness,
    The Skin Relief also has the lightest but yummy scent. It does not compete with your fragrance.

    Redness can be kept under control by using lukewarm, not hot or cold, water on the face. Also, USE SUNSCREEN (for sensitive skin)! Would love to try these products by SkinMedica–thanks! I’m still searching for the ideal solution!

    My keys to keeping my rosacea under control is to cleanse with oil (currently using SK-II), use Clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate and use physical, not chemical sunscreens. My skin healed and rarely has an issue from this regimen whereas Metrogel made my skin worse.

    Rosacea is a constant struggle because it seems to worsen with time, however I’ve started using a gentle foaming cleanser along with a prescription retinol, which seems to have kept it in check for some time. I’ve also had great results after getting a chemical peel.

    I have only tried Clinque’s redness solution becuase I am living in Japan and this is what they have to buy on the military base. I have a hard time trying to get other things through the mail becuase not many people will ship to an APO address. I am hoping to find something soon because it is embarassing to have to get dressed up for the events I go to and then I have this red, blotty skin that ruins the whole outfit! I appreciate all the home remedies that others have suggested…I try them until we move back to the USA next year. Thank you!

    I use tetracycline when the rosacea is inflamatory. As to general skincare regimen, I have oily skin so the Glytone for Acne products work great at clearing the redness and uneven skintone and I have fewer flare ups. The biggest contributor to my out of control rosacea is stress, but good care products make it less a problem. The most disappointing product line I have come across for rosacea is the IS Clinical, which was just not very effective and a too pricey.

    I’ve yet to find the miracle for my redness. Luckily it is light so most think I have a sunburn, but staying out of the sun is what works best for me, plus using a face day tinted moisurizer.

    I’ve suffered from redness for many years. For my redness, I try to use warm water to rinse my face. I also avoid direct sunlight when possible. To help with my redness, sometimes I mix manuka honey with oatmeal and do a mask to calm my redness. This is the only solution that works for me. I hope to find products that would help control the redness instead of always having to mix up a batch of manuka honey and oatmeal.

    I’m a fair skinned red head in my 50′s with lots of surface capillaries on my cheeks & nose. I also have extremely sensitive skin, very rosey cheeks
    & rosacea flare ups. The swollen skin is hot, pink and tight feeling. I use Kinerase Gentle Daily Cleanser and a gentle touch with washing and drying my face. Boots Organic Face Rosewater Toner is perfect for me. It gently cleanses, refeshes & tones. The gentle rosewater scent is lovely & doesn’t dry out my skin. I keep a spray bottle full of it in the refrigerator. I spray it on my irritated cheeks for instant cooling. It is also very refreshing when the weather is hot.

    For my redness – I just try to use the most gentle yet effective cleanser to get off my makeup at night.
    I’ve been loving the Shu Uemura oil cleansers – they don’t dry my skin out – so they don’t cause more redness in my sensitive skin. :)

    For my rosacea & non-specific redness, I use MetroGel 1%.This weekend I traveled home to Texas for a family reunion on my family’s cattle ranch. It was in the 90′s & we were outside a lot. I had forgotten my sunscreen, so I wore a hat, but was very worried about burning. I did burn & now I need more help than usual. My rosacea is going crazy right now! SkinMedica is exactly what I need & want to be able to use from now on. Wish me luck! Thanks!
