Redness Erased This Winter

Rosy cheeks are a wintertime beauty bonus. But Mother Nature often takes it a smidge too far, turning a delicate flush into stubborn, dry and itchy redness that lasts well after retreating inside from the chilly temps. Before slathering on gobs of foundation in an attempt to mask the very much unwelcomed inflammation, turn instead to products that fight redness while nourishing skin.

GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment

This mask was clinically developed to address redness and other wintertime skin concerns. The potent mud formula supports skin’s natural oil balance while delivering a blend of AHA and BHA acids for clearer-looking skin. Activated-X charcoal lifts away dirt and other congestions, resulting in a refined, healthy-looking pigmentation. $69 for 1.7oz
