Skin care for Rosacea

If you suffer from rosacea, your skin is likely to be sensitive. So, how can you care for your skin if you have this condition?

Avene Skin Care

Rosacea is a chronic skin problem, characterised by flushing, persistent redness and lumps and bumps on the face and surrounding skin. It worsens with age if left untreated, and can also lead to skin thickening.

Skin Care

Consistent skin care can help with the day to day treating of rosacea.

Look out for rosacea irritants, which can make your skin flare up. Surveys have shown that alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol and peppermint have all been common irritation triggers. Your skin will be sensitive, so try to avoid harsh cleansing products such as astringents and exfoliating agents.

For sensitive skin, fragrance free skin care and make up products are essential, and even more so if you’re prone to rosacea. Fragrances added to skin care products are often irritating for skin, so make sure to invest in some gentle, allergy tested products.

Using minimal products will reduce the chances of irritating your skin and causing a flare up. You can also look for products that have multiple functions which will reduce the number of individual products you’re using.

Make sure to test all your skin care products first before applying them to your face. Try it on a small patch on your neck, for example – if you find the product irritates your skin, make a note of the ingredients and obviously avoid the product itself.

Rosacea irritants vary from person to person, so make sure you’re using your own skin as a guide.

Rosacea Treatments

If you want to tackle rosacea head on, Natura offer some targeted treatments that can give marked improvements. Using medical grade lasers, we can trigger the healing processes within the skin and blood vessels and address the problem at the source.

If you suffer from rosacea, sensitive skin care is extra important – but our gold standard of treatment can help you to reduce the appearance of the condition, restoring your self confidence and revealing a glowing complexion.

Rosy glow – Treating Rosacea

This time of year can cause many to have that rosy cheeked natural glow. However, what if you seem to have that rosy glow all year round, some would love to have naturally pink cheeks, it would save a pretty penny on blusher, but for others, rosy cheeks are not all they cracked up to be.

Rosacea is a common skin complaint and is prevalent between those aged 30-60. It tends to affect more women than men and can be a rather embarrassing skin condition.

If mainly affects the facial area and those of fair skin, 1 in 10 people suffer from Rosacea.

What is Rosacea?

Despite being common, we still don’t know everything about the condition Rocacea. It can cause redness and flushing of the skin, some of the finer veins can appear and in some cases the skin can thicken around the affected area such as the nose. It can also cause an increase in spots.

What are the causes of Rosacea?

The actual cause of Rosacea is unknown, but research by the National Rosacea Society has identified the most common reasons why Rosacea may flare up – these include, direct sunlight, cold weather, alcohol, stress, hot drinks and eating spicy foods.

How to treat Rosacea.

Firstly, it is suggested to avoid all of those elements which can trigger the pink flushing, but sometimes this is easier said than done.

Luckily there are a range of treatments available which use the advanced technical power of lasers.

We’re talking about small  medical grade lasers which are concentrated on the area and basically encourage the veins and blood vessels which cause Rosacea to heal, thus reducing the signs of redness.

Some may think only the rich and famous could afford this treatment, but believe it or not, it is affordable and can reduce Rosacea, giving a brighter, less rosy appearance.

The only downside of having this treatment is that if required, you will have to go out and purchase some blusher or bronzer.
