Did you know that hyperpigmentation isn’t the only form of skin discoloration?

That’s right! There’s actually another skin condition called post-inflammatory erythema (redness).

This is particularly common in fairer-skinned individuals and includes skin redness, red spots, and the “tomato” face syndrome 🍅 (okay, I made that one up, but you get the point).

Researchers developed the term, post-inflammatory erythema (PIE), to describe the skin redness that plagued many patients long after their battle with inflammatory acne. According to the researchers, PIE is caused by damaged capillaries (small blood vessels) near the skin surface (source: Easy as PIE, 2013).

Effective treatments for PIE remain unclear, although the researchers of the same paper noted that laser resurfacing (specifically pulsed-dye laser) showed good results in two clinical cases.

For mild cases of PIE, I recommend giving the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream a shot.

This K-Beauty product by South Korean dermatologist Dr. Sung Jae Jung is designed specifically to neutralize redness and protect your skin from environmental damage, using a combination of:

  • Centella Asiatica (Tiger Grass): also called Indian Pennywort, this plant is found in Asia and contains the compounds madecassoside, madecassic acid, asiaticoside, and asiatic acid, which have wound healing properties and helps reduce inflammation levels in your skin (source: Centella Asiatica in Cosmetology, 2013).
  • Herb Complex: restores skin strength with Houttuynia Cordata and Resurrection Plant
  • Mineral Solution: repairs fatigued skin with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium
  • Raspberry Leaf Extract: high in antioxidants and helps soothe skin inflammation

Dr. Jart+ also provided a sample before/after photo which shows reduced redness (YMMV):

Finally, customer reviews have been very positive on both Dr. Jart+ and Sephora, with many saying this product was a “holy grail” for their redness problems and helped with color correction.

My Verdict: If you struggle with constant redness (PIE), the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream is a great product to try out before considering more expensive treatments like laser resurfacing.
