Dry, Red Blotchy marks around nose and mouth/Solution? Cover Up?

 i am getting a dryish reddish blotchy color around my nose and mouth area- have you experienced this? If so, what do you use to cover it up with something that looks normal and lasts? and what gets rid of it?

Hey there Mle Kate, 

 

There could be many contributing factors that are causing this irritation.

 

One thought could be the seasonal weather change? Or a product you are applying topically could be over drying your skin?

 

My first approach would be applying moisture on or around the affected area more frequently and avoid using products that contain active ingredients. 

 

Like:

  • Acne cleansers
  • Salicylic acid
  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Retinoids

I would recommend using moisturizers that are a bit more emollient and those that contain ingredients that calm and soothe the skin like Jurliques Calendula cream.

This moisturizer will provide hydration and instant relief to dry irritated skin.

 

Hope this helps,
