Use a gentle exfoliant. 

When it comes to reddened prone skins, it is often best to go easy on your exfoliation. Exfoliating the skin regularly can actually help to renew and promote healthy skin, however if your skin is o the sensitive side, it is good to consider an enzyme exfoliant. This will help to eliminate the dead skin cells and help to increase the cellular turnover of your skin, without creating further skin redness with a physical scrub. 2 of my go to enymes exfoliants are the Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask and the Grown Alchemist Enzyme Exfoliant.
