Rosacea

How can rosacea be improved?

Step 1: Consult your skin care professional

Rosacea is a medical condition that should be diagnosed by a skin care professional before starting any treatment plan.

Step 2: Reduce inflammation and redness

Calm the skin with skin soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as hinokitiol, sea whip, niacinaminde and aloe. Prevent flare-ups caused by environmental factors with antioxidants.

Step 3: Repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier

Maintaining the skin’s natural barrier is crucial to preventing further moisture loss and improving cell turnover. Dry skin has a slower cell turnover compare to adequately hydrated skin; gentle exfoliating treatments can help regulate the process.

Step 3: Reduce bacteria and/or other microbial agents

One theorized cause of rosacea is bacteria and another is the Demodex mite that releases bacteria into the skin when it dies. Use natural antimicrobial ingredients to help keep skin free of breakouts.

Step 4: Protect from UV rays

Choose mineral-based broad-spectrum sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which keep the skin cooler than chemical sunscreen ingredients by reflecting UV rays. Mineral ingredients are generally less irritating than chemicals, which is important for sensitive and rosacea-prone skin.
