Facial redness is a common difficult to control cosmetic problem representing various phases of rosacea. Using anti-inflammatory/antioxidant botanicals in moisturizer formulations is a possible approach to minimizing the erythema. This research utilized a common facial cleanser, but only applied the botanically based moisturizer to one half face to properly assess efficacy. 30 female subjects Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV 30-55 years of age with mild to moderate chronic facial redness, defined as a redness score of 3-6 on a 10-point scale, were enrolled. By the end of week 4, statistically significant improvement was seen on the cleanser/mask treated side in scaling (P less than 0.001), flaking (P less than 0.001), tactile smoothness (P less than 0.001), textural smoothness (P less than 0.001), firmness (P less than 0.001), radiance (P less than 0.001), luminosity (P less than 0.001), and overall appearance (P less than 0.001). Thus, cosmetic moisturizers may be useful in reducing facial redness. J Drugs Dermatol. 2018;17(6):671-676.

A dual inhibitor of both cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The drug also enhances pulmonary hypoxic vasoconstriction and has a protective effect after myocardial ischemia.
An anti-inflammatory, synthetic glucocorticoid. It is used topically as an anti-inflammatory agent and in aerosol form for the treatment of ASTHMA.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. It is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENTS, NON-STEROIDAL) similar in mode of action to INDOMETHACIN.
Anti-inflammatory agents that are not steroids. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They are used primarily in the treatment of chronic arthritic conditions and certain soft tissue disorders associated with pain and inflammation. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects. Certain NSAIDs also may inhibit lipoxygenase enzymes or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES or may modulate T-cell function. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p 1814-5)
