Skin Care Tips for Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin disorder which affects millions of people worldwide and yet it is highly misunderstood. Rosacea’s symptoms include flushing of the face, redness, and spots on facial skin predominantly on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. It can also cause symptoms in the eyes such as dryness, sensitivity to sunlight, burning or stinging of eyes etc. It is important that people with rosacea take note and be cautious on the factors that can easily irritate your skin.

Here are the tips YOU can do to control the symptoms of rosacea.

 

Distinguish your trigger points

The most basic step in regulating the symptoms of rosacea and preventing it from worsening is to know what causes it to trigger. To prevent rosacea from flaring up, use products that are free from these common irritants which are alcohol, menthol, witch hazel, camphor, peppermint, and fragrances. If a product causes your skin to turn red, sting, or burn, DO NOT USE IT!

Apply Moisturizer

Moisturizer will not only keep your skin healthy and radiant, but it will also soothe the irritation. Make sure to invest in a moisturizer that is all natural, mild, safe, and effective!

Treat your skin with tenderness

Use mild cleansers and be gentle when washing your face. Stay away from products that contain harsh chemicals as this can worsen the condition of your skin. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor to make sure that the product that you have chosen is safe for your skin.

Say no to hot water!

Use warm water when washing or taking a bath. Hot water can dry out and aggravate the irritation of your skin so the best way to prevent this is to stay away from it!

Soothe your skin with Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties which are great for sensitive and dry skin of persons with rosacea. You can use the aloe vera gel directly from the plant or you can buy the ones available in the market, but make sure that it doesn’t contain any irritants or artificial ingredients.

Shade yourself from the sunlight

Use sunblock with high SPF and cover your face with an umbrella before striding out as strong sunlight can worsen the symptoms of your rosacea.

Many people are suffering from this distressing skin disorder but with these simple tips, you can keep your symptoms at bay!
