Rosacea is a common skin condition that can be very frustrating for those who suffer from it. Depending on the severity, the constant look of being flushed, and in some cases bumpy and inflamed skin, can often make sufferers feel embarrassed and can really affect their confidence.
In order to maintain and treat Rosacea, it’s important to understand what it is, why it happens and what products can help to keep things under control.
What is Rosacea?
In its early stages, Rosacea can often be mistaken for looking a little more flush than usual, kind of like when someone gives you a wonderful compliment that you don’t know how to respond to. The redness will usually begin on the cheeks and can spread to the forehead, chin, ears, chest and even the back. As the condition progresses more symptoms can appear, here are some things to look out for:
As with many skin conditions, different triggers can cause the condition to worsen in each individual person, however there are a number of common causes that you can take note of:
Rosacea can appear better on some days and worse on others, so finding the right products to help soothe flare-ups can really help to maintain the condition. We would recommend weaving these 4 products into your everyday skin care routine:
Our wonderful face balm contains a fine oat powder that releases natural starches which will calm and soothe irritated skin. Any dry, tight or flaky skin will be instantly nourished as the formula locks in moisture while regulating oil production without stripping the skin.
How to use: Simply massage the balm into dry skin, then rinse your hands under warm water and continue to massage to emulsify the balm into a milky consistency. Finally remove the balm using a warm, damp muslin cloth.
This oil is perfect for protecting and strengthening the skin. If your skin feels sensitive to touch due to Rosacea then this oil is ideal to use at night after cleansing as it deeply hydrates even the most sensitive and delicate skin.
How to use: Apply two drops to the palms of your hands and press into cleansed skin either once or twice daily, depending on how inflamed and dehydrated your skin is feeling.
It’s important to really listen to your skin and take note of the symptoms you are experiencing on that particular day. On days when your skin is feeling dry, flaky and tight, our Moisture Rich Face Cream will promote healthy skin production. It calms, protects and strengthens thanks to the essential oils of Rose Absolute and Rose Geranium.
It’s also possible for Rosacea prone skin to change and often feel more oily than dry and flaky, on these days use a lighter moisturiser so as to not overload your skin. Our Balancing Face Moistuiser contains Aloe Vera and Chamomile to help calm any redness.
How to use: Apply 1-2 pumps to the face and massage into your skin once your serum or oil has absorbed.
