10 Skin-Coddling Products To Treat Stressed Skin

No matter how devoted you are to skin care, sun protection, and a general state of well-being, there comes a time in everyone’s life wherein your skin is suddenly like, Nope. Perhaps it’s a matter of catching a few too many rays, or even an incident of overenthusiastic exfoliating, but what ever it may be, it needs addressing. Fast.

Hit pause on the panic button. In case of emergency, take a deep breath and reach for one of these 10 proven skin-soothers instead. They’ll calm your skin down so you can calm down, too.

#1. Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser
This is the ultimate daily face wash: use on dry skin to dissolve away makeup and grime, or on wet skin as you start your day. The pH-balanced, creamy gel formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners so your face is left feeling healthy and soft, never tight. Its cleansing power comes from the same gentle cleaning agents you’d find in contact lens solution, so it’s tough on impurities and still safe to use on your eyes. You’ll see. The texture of the cleanser is truly unlike any others I’ve tried. It’s a soft, gel-like formula that feels amazing—like a high-end serum—when applied. For someone with extremely sensitive skin, it’s the best of both worlds—all the cleanliness without the harsh chemicals. The formula is hypoallergenic and free of parabens, soap, and sulfates.

USD $18, available at Glossier.com
#2. DERMAdoctor Calm Cool & Corrected Tranquility Cream
A face cream to soothe the appearance of redness, hydrate dryness, and gently rejuvenate sensitive, rosy, or rosacea-prone skin. Oleanolic acid helps calm and soothe redness and sensitivity while superoxide dismutase, vitamin E, and white tea extract yield a potent, yet non-irritating antioxidant option for those unable to tolerate other forms of rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, chamomile extract, squalene, and shea butter protect and hydrate delicate, sensitive skin without aggravating acne and sebum sequestering micro-particles®, a form of polymer technology, help absorb excess surface skin oils without causing skin dryness.

USD $85, available at Sephora.com

#3. MAY LINDSTROM, The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm

As soothing as its ice-blue hue implies, this calming balm brings immediate relief from irritation, whilst helping to counter emotional upset. Ideal for stressed or easily-offended skin types, this silky formula melts into skin where it generates a reassuring warmth (like a hug for your face!), that helps to quickly neutralise any redness or inflammation, whilst replenishing, strengthening and protecting for a healthy, contented complexion. Blue Tansy is a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory agent, so helps take the sting out of burns, grazes or allergic flare-ups, while it also works on a deeper level – to relax muscles, alleviate nervous tension and inspire emotional equilibrium. SOS for skin in crisis, this beautiful balm is the ultimate bathroom essential – no home should be without it!

#5. Sloane Inc Youth Oil
A carefully blended powerful treatment oil, Sloane Inc YOUTH contains 100% Organic Rosehip Oil with Lavender provides the skin with a rich source of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Not only that it contains essential fatty acids that counteract the drying effects of sun exposure and environmental influences that lead to signs of aging and skin damage, studies have shown Rosehip Oil can improve surgical, traumatic and burn scars. The essential fatty acids in rose hip oil can help to reduce scarring, stimulate skin regeneration and improves discoloration.

YOUTH is designed to soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles while restoring skin’s youthful resilience and suppleness. The anti-aging benefit comes about due to the antioxidants and the oil’s ability to sink into deeper layer of the skin that works on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin. Carefully formulated with 100% certified organic Rosehip Oil, which provides vital nutrients to correct dark spots, hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

It is recommended for anyone experiencing any type of redness including redness due to rosacea, ruddy skin, and chronic or temporary irritation. Colloidal sulfur combats the root cause of facial redness, aloe soothes and calms, ginger works as a natural, powerful anti-redness agent, and bisabolol aids penetration of the formula's active ingredients. FAB Antioxidant Booster completes the picture by defending the skin against free radical damage for a smooth, healthy-looking complexion.
