Look for products that are light weight. Gels or gel/cream textures are ideal as they're instantly cooling and glide over your skin easily like Dermalogica's Calm Water Gel. Some classic anti-inflammatory botanicals that are favourites in skin care formulations are lavender, chamomile, oat oil and evening primrose oil, but there are now cosmeceutical ingredients like peptides that help control the inflammatory response in our skin.
