Inflammation causes all sorts of unsightly skin eruptions, like eczema
, psoriasis, rosacea
, and even cystic acne flare-ups
. While our diets and environmental aggressors play a role in how reactive our skin can get, sometimes it's the products we’re applying (namely the ingredients within them) that really exacerbate the issue. To steer you in the right direction, consider these anti-inflammatory skincare products to treat irritation.
