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.
