Living With Rosacea

Rosacea presents itself primarily in red splotches on the face, especially the cheeks and forehead, and the skin is sensitive and irritated. Topical steroids can make it worse, harsh cleansers can exacerbate the condition, fragrances can aggravate the skin. Additionally, some foods and environmental situations can cause flareups.

Generally, Rosacea sufferers are advised to avoid foods that are strongly spicy, contain caffeine, or contain alcohol. All of these are foods or beverages that can bring a blush to the skin and this additional blood flow to the surface of the skin can trigger the Rosacea. Extremes of hot or cold, excessive sun exposure, stress, and heavy exercise are considered to be factors in Rosacea outbreaks.

Women with Rosacea generally should avoid microdermabrasion and chemical peels. It is also important to avoid strong chemical cleansers, products containing parabens or fragrances, and products that contain SLS or formaldehydes. Then what should a woman use who wants to look her best, fight aging, and have smooth skin if she is also dealing with Rosacea?

We recommend first a gentle but effective cleanser such as our Rosehip Seed Oil for cleansing the face without irritating it. The Rosehip Seed Oil will gently clean away pore-blocking impurities and makeup. After you gently pat dry, the addition of a good moisturizer will help keep the skin calm and soothed. We recommend our Peptide 6® anti-aging face cream with six peptides to minimize the effects of aging and promote collagen renewal plus Hyaluronic Acid to restore moisture deep in skin cells for better smoothness and firmness.

These products cannot cure Rosacea, but they are especially formulated to not irritate your delicate skin and to moisturize and smooth your face in the most effective manner possible. What does that mean to you? It means that you feel better, your skin feels less irritated, you look better and more radiant.

How Do I Deal With Middle Age Blemishes?

You have left puberty way behind and experienced the delight that comes when your skin finally clears up. It becomes less oily and greasy, less prone to white heads, black heads and pimples. You may be a few years older in your late twenties and early thirties but chances are your skin looks the best it has ever looked. You are in the prime of your complexion’s life!

This is the era that is very free of worries and cares as far as skin goes. As long as you can remember to do four simple things you will probably look great:

  • Protect your skin with a good sun block,
  • Clean your face with a skin cleanser not a harsh bar of soap,
  • Exfoliate as needed, and
  • Moisturize well.

And every day you go out the door looking great! And then your forties come around. It may happen to you sooner rather than later, maybe it will not happen to you at all. But the forties are when many women experience pre- and peri-menopause and the hormone swings that go with them. Suddenly you have mood swings, bloating, sleepless nights! Suddenly, you look in the mirror one morning and – what’s that? A blemish is starting on your chin! Or some other prominent spot of your face.

First the good news, this is temporary. Your hormones will not act like this forever. This may be a very short phase you are going through. Now, the second piece of good news. If you switch to a very gentle but thorough cleanser, you can moderate or reduce the amount of breakouts. The key is twofold: you want to clean out those clogged pores, and you want to be very careful not to irritate the skin any more than it already is. A large part of the visibility of a blemish is the irritation of the skin around the surface spot. The redness marks the area even more than the pimple itself. So do not scrub at those spots or use anything harsh on them.

Smooth Skin Systems Rose Hip Seed Oil is a very effective cleanser for damaged or irritated skin. The gentle Castile soap cleans without SLS or parabens and keeps the pores open and breathing. Vitamin C and beta-carotene promote healing and enhance the freshness of your face. Acne, rosacea, or just the occasional breakout will benefit from the use of this gentle cleanser for sensitive skin.
