Correcting redness with Lierac Paris Laboratories

When carefully managed, redness can be effectively corrected. Read on, and discover how.

When redness occurs, achieving an even skin tone can be a real issue. Thankfully, although there are multiple reasons for redness, there is one easy solution—Rosilogie, the anti-redness line of products from Lierac Paris Laboratories. Let’s take a quick look at the what and why of redness before we dive into Lierac’s anti-redness beauty ritual, step by step. 

What is redness, and what causes it?   

Redness is essentially a reaction (sometimes a hyper-reaction) to different stimuli the skin is exposed to. Redness is a skin condition that can occur on any skin type, at any time. 

Redness has a variety of different triggers: 

  • Outdoor temperatures: whether very hot or cold, temperature variations can alter blood microcirculation in the skin.
  • Dry air: due to its lack of humidity, dry air can dry out the skin, making it more fragile, sensitive, and more reactive as a result.
  • Hot water: using water that is too hot can also dry out the skin, once again making it more sensitive.

The skin perceives each of these triggers as an aggressor, which it responds to through inflammatory-type reactions.

Are there different types of redness?

Yes. There are actually three types. 
  1. Flushing happens when skin feels attacked and reacts by accelerating blood microcirculation in certain parts of the face, most commonly the cheeks and nose. This form of redness comes on suddenly and can disappear just as quickly.
  2. Couperose occurs when blood vessels remain permanently dilated due to exhaustion from repeatedly dilating and contracting. Small and normally invisible blood vessels suddenly become permanently visible as a result.
  3. Diffuse redness is the consequence of an impaired skin barrier. Indeed, after repeated aggressions, the skin barrier becomes less effective at protecting the skin and inflammation becomes more widespread. In general, this type of redness is always present and evenly distributed throughout the face although it is much less intense than the redness that occurs with flushing or couperose.

What ingredients work best to correct redness? 

After years of research, Lierac Laboratories identified and uses three key ingredients for treating the three different types of redness.

Neuro-calming Peptide: ideal for treating flushing, this ingredient neutralizes neuron responses in order to increase their tolerance level, making them slower to react.

Ruscus: increases the resistance of blood vessels, making it an excellent treatment for couperose.

Dextran: reduces inflammation and is therefore ideal for treating diffuse redness.

The Rosilogie care routine

To effectively fight redness, Lierac Paris Laboratories focuses on cutaneous chronobiology—a concept centered around providing 24-hour care for redness.

Indeed, Rosilogie Double Concentrate was created with the goal of providing a single solution for morning and evening treatment of redness.

During the day, the Double Concentrate provides defensive action, which strengthens the skin barrier and activates skin defense molecules.
The result: skin barrier returns to an optimal level, making the skin less reactive to all potential triggers.

At night, the Double Concentrate treats the skin by preserving the anti-inflammatory effect of cortisol, which has a tendency to decrease at night. It also inhibits the release of histamine, which is a major cause of redness due to its powerful vasodilating effects.
The result: skin that is stronger and therefore more resistant to the stimuli that cause redness.

As a complement, you can also apply Rosilogie Regulating Cream to provide your skin with an added shield of protection. Plus, its green correcting pigments help reduce the appearance of redness and provide a more even skin tone!
