A Skincare Challenge: Red and Dry Skin

Skin Problems

While I generally have tamed skin throughout the year, I do get occasional breakouts and acne bouts that pop up unexpectedly. However, two of my continuous major skin concerns include redness and occasional dryness on certain areas of my face; dryness on my cheeks, redness around the area on my nose. I’ve actually given up on the redness issue as I’ve found out that there’s no escaping it even if I slap on makeup to conceal it. It just keeps peeking throughout the day – resistant to being covered up even with the most expensive foundations and concealers, hah!
So when I was asked to participate in the Physiogel Free in My Skin 14-day Challenge, using the breakthrough Calming Relief Face Cream that targets red, dry, irritated and sensitive skin – HELL YES! I’ve been a loyal user of the Physiogel Intensive Cream ever since it healed my extremely painful, red, dry and flaky skin which I experienced after a derma treatment that overly exfoliated my skin. I was left with super flaky, itchy patches with stinging redness all over. Sheesh, I can still remember the horror.

Free in my Skin

So I’m embarking on this 2-week Free in My Skin Challenge using the new Calming Relief Facial Cream I’ve already started a week ago. As a quick first impression, the Calming Relief Facial Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that comes in a pump bottle. Included in its potent list of actives is the patented Physiogel® BioMimic™ technology that repairs and heals disrupted skin by mimicking the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
No fancy schmancy promises – just fuss-free yet powerful, and effective results that will solve your skincare woes especially when it comes to red, dry and irritated skin. I mean, I love me my fancy schmancy serums and all – but when I really want to address a serious issue, I run to dermatologist-recommended products. The Calming Relief Face Cream is made with no fragrances, no colorants and no preservatives.
Don’t be fooled by the plain and simple packaging – most of the time, they’re the most effective products (e.g. French pharmacy skincare brands).
First Impression Results
So I tried using this in conjunction with my other serums after 5 days of using it alone and it works really well with other skincare products too. It’s non comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores. I use my serums first, then I put this cream on top – serving as my moisturizer.
After a week and a half, I’ve actually already been seeing improvements – especially when I have breakouts. They seem to be less angry and less red as the days pass and they never get to the point where they’re extremely flared up with pus that you just want to pop it or hide from civilization for a week. I also noticed softer and smoother skin in conjunction, meaning the moisturizing properties are definitely doing wonders as well.
For those with contact dermatitis or eczema, I urge you to try this product. I’ve had friends who swear by Physiogel creams for their eczema cases.
Less redness around the nose area although not completely gone, breakouts are less angry and easily healed. What I didn’t expect was the overall smoother and softer skin in conjunction with combating the redness.
I’ll check back in after one more week when I’ve completed the whole challenge and I’ll show you the full results then!
Disclosure: I’m tapped as a brand ambassador for the new Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream but all thoughts and experiences are 100% honest and my own.

    Can I use this for a kid? Enjo has been getting skin irritations and the derma gave me cream that has steroids.

      Anna! I’ll get back to you if this is okay for kids. I actually used this on Selene pero not on her face – on her arms and tummy area na dry and it worked! On the face, I’m not so sure. Tanong ko and I’ll get back to you!

    Physiogel isn’t available to me 🙁 Maybe I’ll pick this up when I’m back in Asia.

      Where are you now ba Shayne?
      I know Physiogel is widely available globally but not sure where it’s NOT available. 🙂

        I’m back home in the States now! 🙁 We’d have to get Physiogel through resellers (if those even exist)! I find that a lot of really great products readily available in Asia aren’t so available here. We’re kind of behind, actually, but that’s just my opinion as someone who bounces between continents.

    I also have the same problem ,specially in my cheeks. Redness and dryness lalo na pag malamig. I just hide it using a concealer when I go out pero pag sa bahay lang nilalagyan ng husband KO ng petroleum jelly.

    Can’t wait for the follow-up! My cheeks are so red and very mahapdi right now. I think I may be allergic to sun exposure, or sunblock. Or maybe both! 🙁
