Fact sheet: Post-inflammatory red marks (post-inflammatory erythematous marks).

Definition: Skin lesions which come up as pink-reddish flat spots of varying intensity, appearing in the aftermath of an inflammation. These marks are caused by vasodilation of the superficial skin vessels and are more visible on fair skin.
Internal and external causes: Acne pimples, insect bites, various skin traumas.
How to reduce or eliminate: Keep your skin hydrated with the application of products containing moisturizing ingredients (aloe vera, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid); repair the damaged skin barrier with treatments containing ceramides, fatty acids, etc.; use care with anti-inflammatory active ingredients (vitamin C, niacinamide, azelaic acid, etc.); use products containing soothing and regenerating ingredients (Centella asiatica, panthenol, etc.); aesthetic solutions (vascular laser).
Preventative steps to take: Apply a moisturizer daily; protect your skin from the sun with a minimum SPF 50 sunscreen which blocks out UVA and UVB rays.
