How I noticed redness around my nose?

When I was in college my friend called out to me and said, “Hey, your nose is red are you sick?” and I for some reason said, “No, I am fine. Maybe, my skin is dry, and because of that it might be looking like that”.

And after that, I took action and tried to fix it with some home remedies but it didn’t work for me.

One of the worst things you can do is listen to some random people on the internet and apply things that you shouldn’t apply. Like Lemon juice! Yes, I applied lemon juice and it burnt like hell. The pain is similar to applying lemon juice to a wound.

And this skin condition remained with me for my entire college life. And it looked even worst during functions and parties. Because it will highlight on my face to have red crease around nose.

1 Find the problem

The first step in getting rid of redness around your nose is to identify the culprit that is generating the irritation. One of the main causes of redness around the nose is skin irritation, which can be brought on by ingredients in skincare products like alcohol, artificial scents, and tints, as well as harsh makeup wipes. 

You might notice that after using a particular product your skin is getting worst and is hard to recover. For me, it was Coconut oil. I don’t know why but I used coconut oil constantly even though it burned the affected area and caused more redness around my nose.

That doesn’t mean you should never use coconut oil. If it works for you then it is great and you should always choose products that work for you.

2 Dehydration

So, If you are someone who faces this issue only in winter then there might be a chance that you are not having enough water. Many people know that their skin gets worst during winter because of the cold weather and if you have dry skin, you know it too.

As the weather is cold, we just forget to drink water and the average intake of water on your normal days can be cut down to half during winter. That doesn’t mean that you should drink 3 litters of water every day. But drink an adequate amount of water each day.

Even if you don’t want it to try to drink a minimum of 6 glasses of water. And see how it works wonderfully for your skin.

One of the simplest ways to hydrate the skin is by applying a hydrating essence. You can then add a hydrating serum and dab it on the nose area. Skin dehydration can also produce redness around the nose.

1 Cleaning

Many people ignore it and I did too. I have dry skin so washing my face does not make any sense to me but once I got tired of my skin condition, I started washing my face with lukewarm water.

I am still struggling to find the best face wash for me but lukewarm water works best because it takes down all the dust and oil from your skin. Make sure you wipe down the water gently and if possible, use a freshly washed towel to avoid any skin problems.

This helped me with redness around nose and also got rid of blackheads with this soft brittle brush.

2 Moisturizer

Once you washed your face it’s best to apply moisture immediately and lock in all the moisture. I apply a thick layer of moisturizer on the corner of my lips and nose since they tend to get dry more.

3 Gua Sha

Gua sha is thought to increase blood flow, encourage the formation of collagen, and enhance the skin’s overall appearance. Gua sha is additionally used by certain people to soothe facial tension and wrinkles, as well as to relax the face and jaw.

So, if you don’t have a Gua sha no problem uses your fingers and start the massage on your face. Use some massaging oil so your hands glide smoothly on your face. You can always look for inspiration on how to do some facial massage on Youtube.

Gua Sha will help to stimulate the skin around your nose and you will redness around nose is vanished.

Things you should consider before you buy any products.

It’s crucial to look for hydrating and nourishing skincare products while selecting items for dry skin. Glycerine, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides are among the ingredients that can aid in drawing and holding moisture to the skin.

Astringents like alcohol should be avoided because they might cause the skin to become even drier. Additionally, it’s critical to search for non-comedogenic products because those with dry skin are more likely to experience clogged pores.

It is advised to first cleanse your skin gently with and fragrance-free cleanser, then hydrate your skin using a moisturizer made especially for dry skin.

To provide more hydration, you can also use a facial oil or serum. In order to remove dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, it is also advised to exfoliate once a week.
