Seeing Red


    By Jennifer Sgro

    We all love a rosy glow, especially when it’s a slight flush on the apples of the cheeks. But what we don’t love is facial flushing or flare-ups caused by inflammation or blood vessels sitting at the surface of the skin. Typically caused by food and alcohol intake (spicy enchiladas, anyone?), climate and hormonal changes and Rosacea — a blotchy appearance across the cheeks, nose, forehead and neck — these flare-ups can cause the skin to become warm and extremely sensitive.

    Enter a new skin-changing product from Clinique. Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology ($30 / US $24.50), is a liquid foundation designed especially to to treat facial redness, including Rosacea, while calming and soothing the skin.

    Magnolia Grandiflora bark extract, mushroom extract and caffeine soothe and calm the skin, while Murumuru butter helps to protect the skin’s moisture barrier, and Probiotic Technology actually improves the skin’s barrier strength, resulting in healthier skin without the redness.

    We love how easy it is to apply; there’s no cakey or heavy foundation feeling. And our skin has the added protection of broad spectrum sunscreen. Available in six calming shades.

    Available at Clinique counters at The Bay across Canada and Macy’s in the USA
