What's Causing Your Skin Irritation & How to Stop It

Skin irritation is a seemingly harmless skin condition that can cause major cosmetic frustrations. Dryness, redness, or patches of small bumps can be hard to cover up with makeup, and sometimes it seems like everything makes it worse. 

If you are wondering what is causing your skin irritation and how to stop it, Charette Cosmetics can help you get on the skincare path to smooth, radiant skin once again.

What Causes Skin Irritation?

Skin irritation is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. It can cause redness, itching, burning, and dryness, among other symptoms. Several factors can cause skin irritation, including:


Some people may develop skin irritation due to an allergic reaction to a particular substance, such as soap, lotion, or detergent. Over time, some people develop an allergy to specific ingredients in skincare products. Outside allergens can also trigger skin irritation.


Certain harsh chemicals and substances in products like soaps, detergents, solvents, and even cosmetics, can cause skin irritation.


Bacterial, fungal, or viral infections can also cause skin irritation.

Skin disorders

Certain skin disorders, like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis, can cause skin irritation or dry/rough patches of skin that may look red or scaley.


Exposure to extreme weather conditions, such as cold and wind, can cause skin irritation.

To stop skin irritation, the first step is to identify the cause. If the irritation is due to an allergy, infection, or skin condition, it is important to speak with your dermatologist. Once you identify the source of your skin irritation, Charette Cosmetics can help you ease symptoms and stop further irritation with our safe, gentle, and effective skincare products designed for every skin tone and skin type.

Helpful Tips To Stop Skin Irritation

When it comes to easing skin irritation, there are a few basic things you can do every day to give your skin some extra care and attention to help stop symptoms:

Keep Skin Clean

Wash your skin regularly with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser like Restart + Refresh Gentle Cleanser to gently rid skin of makeup, dirt, and impurities while maintaining the skin's natural moisture barrier and skin's pH, and restoring moisture to keep you hydrated.

Moisturize Daily

Using a moisturizer like Nourish + Soften Moisturizing Lotion can help keep skin hydrated and prevent dryness, which can lead to skin irritation.

Avoid Harsh Products

Take an inventory of all the products you use that come in contact with your skin, and stop using anything that contains harsh chemicals like alcohol, fragrances, and dyes, which can irritate the skin.

Wear Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen like Protect + Preserve SPF 50  to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun without skin irritation.

How Medical Grade Products Stop Skin Irritation

Charette Cosmetics is proud to offer medical-grade skincare products specially formulated to provide advanced and effective solutions for various skin issues. An added benefit is these ingredients help prevent skin irritation. Our high-quality products address everything from acne and aging to hyperpigmentation and melasma. Even though these products are strong enough to produce amazing results, they are gentle enough to avoid triggering skin irritation. 

Our products often contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, such as retinoids, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and other anti-inflammatory agents. These ingredients are more potent and have been shown to be more effective in treating skin irritation than over-the-counter products.

In addition to active ingredients, our products are made with high-quality, pure ingredients that have been carefully selected and tested for safety and effectiveness. This helps to minimize the risk of skin irritation and other adverse effects.

At Charette Cosmetics, our skincare products have been rigorously tested in clinical trials. They have been shown to produce real, measurable results in reducing skin irritation and improving the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients That Ease Skin Irritation 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help to soothe and heal irritated skin. We recommend Repair + Restore Vitamin C Serum

  • Reduces inflammation: Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce redness, swelling, and discomfort caused by skin irritation.
  • Promotes collagen production: Collagen is a protein that helps to keep skin firm and elastic. Vitamin C is essential for producing collagen and can help improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
  • Protects against environmental damage: Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, protecting the skin from damage caused by free radicals. This can help to prevent and repair skin irritation caused by exposure to pollutants, sun damage, and other environmental stressors.
  • Brightens the skin: Vitamin C can help brighten the skin and improve its tone and texture, making it look clearer and smoother.


Retinol, a form of vitamin A, is a popular ingredient in many skincare products because of its ability to improve the appearance of the skin and ease facial skin irritation. We recommend Rejuvenate + Reverse Retinol Serum.

  • Reduces inflammation: Retinol has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to calm irritated skin and reduce redness, itching, and burning.
  • Improves skin texture: Retinol stimulates the production of new skin cells, which can help improve the skin's texture and tone. This can be particularly beneficial for skin that is irritated and rough.
  • Unclogs pores: Retinol can help to unclog pores, reducing the risk of breakouts and improving the skin's overall appearance.
  • Increases cell turnover: Retinol helps to increase the rate at which skin cells are produced and shed, which can lead to a clearer, more youthful-looking complexion.

Tips For Using Retinol

When using retinol to help ease skin irritation, it is important to start slowly and gradually increase the frequency of use. Begin by applying a small amount of retinol product once or twice a week and gradually build up to using it every other night. It's also important to use a gentle, non-irritating cleanser and moisturizer to help minimize skin irritation.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the skin and has a unique ability to hold onto large amounts of water for more hydration and protection. We recommend Hydrate + Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

  • Hydrates the skin: Hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the skin by attracting and retaining moisture, which can help to soothe dry and irritated skin.
  • Reduces inflammation: Hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to calm irritated skin and reduce redness, itching, and burning.
  • Improves skin barrier function: Hyaluronic acid helps improve the skin's barrier function, preventing moisture loss and reducing the risk of skin irritation.
  • Promotes wound healing: Hyaluronic acid can help promote wound healing, making it an effective ingredient for irritated skin and prone to breakouts.

Tips For Using Hyaluronic Acid

When using hyaluronic acid serum to help ease skin irritation, it's best to apply it after cleansing and toning and before moisturizing. Dispense a small amount of serum into your hands and gently massage it into the skin, focusing on dry or irritated areas.
