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?
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.
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.
