A specific concern of many women between the ages of 25 to 35 is diffuse redness of the skin. Many factors can contribute to this condition. Statistics have shown that a high percentage of adult women suffer from a variety of sensitive skin conditions. The causes for sensitive skin vary from person to person. Many times these skin reactions are temporary, resulting from dermatological procedures, environmental conditions or even medication. Sometimes sensitive skin can result from a combination of factors including allergic reaction to facial cosmetics. So, anything that can be done to prevent conditions like rosacea, contact dermatitis or atopic eczema is a top priority of many dermatologists.

Some conditions are chronic, being classified as hereditary in nature, while other more common cases can be traced back to environmental factors. The severity and duration of these conditions vary from mild and temporary to permanent. But regardless of the causes for these often-unsightly conditions, skin sensitivity has been shown to result in discomfort, itching, and redness.

Even if the outward symptoms associated with sensitive skin are not severe enough to consult a dermatologist, most women report to having either, fine, fragile or reactive skin.

One thing that every woman can do to combat this problem is to begin using safer cosmetics designed to mitigate adverse skin reactions. Cosmetics have been clinically proven as a cause for diffuse redness. Recent studies have shown that 24% of women have reported redness and other skin reaction as a direct result of cosmetics. Harmful ingredients such as Parabens, Propylene Glycol, DEA (Diethanolamine), TEA (Triethanolamine) and MEA (Monoethanolamine) often can be found in most common cosmetics.

One of the safest categories of cosmetics on the market today is Mineral Cosmetics. Mineral Cosmetics were originally designed as chemical-free alternatives for women with sensitive skin. By taking harmful chemical compounds out of foundations and other topical cosmetics, mineral cosmetics have been shown to be less reactive and, in the long run, have proven to be much easier on the skin. Women with sensitive skin conditions who have switched over to using mineral cosmetics report dramatic reductions in the outward signs of diffuse redness. As scientist learn more about the causes of diffuse redness and other skin conditions, the ultimate composition of cosmetics will become an important tool for treatment and prevention. The ultimate goal is to create safe cosmetics that work to keep the body healthy inside and out.

Forward thinking cosmetics companies, such as Afterglow, have made it a top priority to build product lines that features organic, gluten-free mineral cosmetics. The idea behind this ethical business philosophy is to offer beauty products that are both healthy to use and environmentally safe.

By avoiding allergens, having the right sun protection, living a healthy life style, using safe cosmetics and keeping stress to a minimum, most instances of diffuse redness and outward signs of skin sensitivity can be minimized and in some cases eliminated. Feeling good about yourself is the first step in optimizing your health and wellbeing.
