3 Simple Steps For Calming Angry Skin

Photo credit: Cookies For Breakfast

We’ve all been there. You’re feeling adventurous and try a new moisturizer, or primer, or foundation, and have a horrible allergic reaction on your skin. Or for some unknown reason, you wake up and your skin is puffy, red, blotchy, and itchy. Trying to cover it with makeup only further irritates it, and then you’re left with an even bigger mess.  Many drug store moisturizers, washes, and toners contain chemicals which will make your skin even angrier, so this is a great time to seek out natural remedies that will get your skin calmed quickly.

Try our favorite three skin-calming steps in succession, or try one or two separately, depending on the severity of your symptoms. You’ll be feeling fresh, de-puffed, de-itched, and redness-free in no time!

Try these creams or use our home made remedies below
