5 Tips for Getting Rid of Skin Redness



Skin redness on the face takes many forms and has many names. If you’re struggling with uneven skin tone and redness, you will benefit from skincare solutions designed to target and prevent redness from occurring. 

The first step in tackling redness is to determine what could be causing the problem. Skin redness is much more common than one may think, and with a proper skincare routine in place, you can begin to get rid of it in no time.  

What’s Causing My Skin Redness?


The most common form of redness is hyperpigmentation. It occurs in small, red or dark-colored spots, as a result of inconsistent melanin production. Many factors can upset and trigger inconsistent melanin production, which is the substance in the skin that gives it color. Such triggers can include prolonged sun exposure, acne breakouts, and inflammation


Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects the central part of the complexion, namely the T-zone (the forehead, nose, and chin area). Symptoms of rosacea can include facial redness, small bumps, inflammation, and uneven skin texture. This type of redness is most commonly associated with a sensitive skin type, which is one that is easily irritated and affected by triggers, or even new products. 

Sun Damage

If you’re suffering from more severe sun damage, you’ll likely be experiencing quite a lot of redness. Sunburns can affect any part of the body that has been exposed to the sun for too long without protection. On the face, sun damage can lead to premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles, and dark spots. 

Acne and Inflammation

Last, skin redness might be a result of an acne breakout and associated inflammation. Cystic acne or inflammatory acne like pustules, pimples, and whiteheads typically occur with redness around them, as the skin is inflamed and irritated. 

5 Tips for Getting Rid of Skin Redness

  • Use a Soothing Face Mask

Try a face mask optimized for men’s skin if you’re struggling with inflammatory redness. Clay masks use gentle, anti-inflammatory ingredients to calm the skin and bring the complexion back into balance. You can think of a face mask as an at-home spa treatment. 

Try the Disco Rejuvenating Face Mask for a powerful, yet gentle treatment for calming inflammation, reducing redness and clearing out toxin-filled pores. 

  • Apply Aloe Vera

One of the most soothing and gentle ingredients out there is Aloe Vera. Aloe has been used for centuries, dating back to Native American cultures, for its healing properties. If you’re suffering from a bad sunburn or a rash with redness, aloe vera does an excellent job of calming the affected area and soothing it. It is also known to reduce itchiness and restore skin tone. 

Try the Disco Invigorating Body Wash and a cold shower to calm redness. Cold showers are known to boost immunity, shock the nervous system, and stimulate endorphins. Furthermore, they can significantly reduce redness on the body. Paired with our Invigorating Body Wash that uses soothing Aloe, your cool shower will smell like a spa, and leave your skin feeling refreshed and soothed. 

  • Use Niacinamide 

Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3, and is an anti-inflammatory. It helps treat many 

forms of acne – especially inflammatory forms like papules, pustules, and whiteheads. It smooths skin texture and reduces redness, making it helpful for more subtle forms of acne like small bumps, razor burn, or shaving pimples. 

  • Try a Vitamin C Moisturizer

Vitamin C is a potent skin brightener, able to rejuvenate skin and restore a healthy skin 

tone. In fact, studies show it’s effective in fading dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C helps create a more even, youthful skin tone by fading spots, brightening your skin, and helping keep it evenly toned. 

  • Take a Skin Supplement
One of the most effective ways to reduce redness is to take a skin health supplement optimized for men. A supplement can help manage skin sensitivity to testosterone, which fluctuates throughout your life and can set off an imbalance in oil. Oiliness, in turn, can lead to redness, inflammation, and acne. Skin supplements also contain powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients like antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can help reduce redness, and promote a vibrant, even complexion.
