How To Manage Your Redness Flare-Ups As We Head Into The Harsh Aussie Summer

Transitioning seasons, particularly from Spring to Summer, can significantly impact those dealing with redness and rosacea. The rise in temperature and increased sun exposure during the harsh Australian Summer can exacerbate these conditions. Increased humidity, higher temperatures and more UV exposure affects the skin and worsens redness symptoms in sensitive skin. However, with the right skincare routine, it's possible to manage and minimise redness flare-ups effectively.


1. Gentle Cleansing

We recommend using gentle cleansers suitable for sensitive skin that will not strip the skin's natural oils. Our Anti Redness Cream Cleanser is effective in hydrating, nourishing and calming redness in an incredibly gentle approach. Traditional cleansers (such as foaming cleansers) can be quite harsh and abrasive for those with sensitive skin, which normally leads to irritation. The Milk Thistle is our hero active ingredient in our Anti Redness Cream Cleanser, immediately going to work addressing redness whilst balancing your skin without stripping it of good oils.

2. Sun Protection

Sunscreen is an unbelievably important step in your skincare routine, regardless of how hot it may feel outside, but it is especially important to remain top of mind as we head into the Australian Summer. This needs to be a non-negotiable step all year round, even if it's cloudy or if you're spending most of your day indoors. Consistently applying sunscreen can also help brighten any existing discolouration and prevent hyperpigmentation. Sunscreen also helps protect essential proteins such as keratin in your skin, which are crucial in maintaining overall skin health and a smooth skin texture. We don't offer an SPF sunscreen in the Ava Society range currently; however, you are more than welcome to pop onto our live chat, and we can suggest some options for you that compliment your skincare routine.

3. Cooling & Hydrating Skincare Treatments

As we lead into the warm Australian Summer, it’s important to keep in mind how the hot weather naturally impacts our skin. Warmer temperatures will strip your skin of moisture, causing your skin to become dehydrated - when the protective upper layer of your skin lacks moisture. During Summer, particularly in climates such as Australia, it is important to be mindful soapily more hydrating and moisture to your skincare regime to combat this harsh weather. Heat can become your skin’s worst enemy - it can dry out the skin and cause breakouts. Furthermore, if your skin is dehydrated, your skin will become dry, flaky, and full and will make our fine lines become more noticeable. Our Sleep With Me Hydrating Gel Mask is our absolute saviour for this Summer. Consider this a big drink of water for your skin. Incredibly hydrating and cooling, this gel-based mask contains vegan hyaluronic acid and a plant-based peptide to provide even the most dehydrated skin with moisture. It has also been formulated specifically for sensitive skin, meaning there is no hidden nastiness, and provides a gentle and natural approach to hydrating your skin without the fear of inflammation.
