Top 10 Tips for Rosacea
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face.
It's more common in women and people with lighter skin, but when it does occur in men, their symptoms can be worse.
The good news is that H-Rosacea Formula can help with symptoms.
How to know if you are affected by rosacea
The first signs include
- Redness (with a blushing appearance) across the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin that comes and goes.
- A burning or stinging feeling when using water or skincare products.
- The redness may be harder to see on darker skin.
- As rosacea worsens, the cheeks, nose, skin and forehead will be red all the time.
- Tiny broken blood vessels that do not go away may appear on your skin.
- Small pink or red bumps may appear. Sometimes these become filled with a yellowish liquid.
Other symptoms can include:
- Dry skin.
- Swelling, especially around the eyes.
- Yellow-orange patches on the skin.
- Painful eyelids or crusts around roots of eyelashes. Sometimes this will be the sign of a condition known as blepharitis.
- Thickened skin, mainly on the nose (but which usually appears after many years).
How can rosacea be treated and controlled?
The goals of treatment are to control the condition and improve the appearance of your skin. Treatments tend to be more effective the earlier they commence. Avoid any over-the-counter products that contain ingredients such as acids, alcohol and other irritants as the chances are they may actually make the rosacea worse.
It is safer to see your doctor or dermatologist so that they can prescribe a safe treatment or to use a natural healing product. In addition to starting a course of treatment, you can help at home by avoiding anything which you think might trigger a flare up.
What else can you do to help this condition?
Keep a diary of any flare ups so that you can identify what might be a cause
- Protect your face from the sun in summer or the cold in winter
- Avoid touching or rubbing the skin on your face
- If using a topical medication, apply any moisturizer once the medication has dried
- Use skin products that are labelled noncomedogenic
Top 10 Tips for Rosacea
2. Never be tempted to rub or scrub your skin. You should always be extra gentle.
3. After cleaning, moisturize your skin by using a natural moisturizer, with ingredients that are helpful to your sensitive skin, night and day.
4. You can camouflage any flushing of the skin on the face in the daytime by using some make up. An hypoallergenic or mineral liquid makeup that is targeted towards dry skin is the most suitable to use for rosacea – especially one that will both work with your skin as well as helping to improve the condition itself. Go for a makeup with a green or yellow base to help cover up and camouflage the redness or rosacea. It lessens the appearance of the redness and may help "even out" your skin tone as well so that any dilated blood vessels become less noticeable. Your foundation should match your skin tone to make it look natural. On the other hand, your concealer should be one shade lighter than your skin tone.
5. Avoid those cosmetics and hair sprays that could aggravate any redness as well as any make up with fragrances or other ingredients that may cause irritation. All the products you use should be free of alcohol and other irritating ingredients
6. If you have ocular rosacea, use eye makeup that is specially formulated for your already sensitive eyes.
7. Protect the skin of your face from the sun by using a natural sunscreen and wearing a wide brimmed hat. The rest of your body can safely get a dose of sunlight for 20 to 30 minutes every day to boost up your vitamin D levels as long as you do not become overheated. The sun on your face together with hot temperatures can trigger a skin flare up.
8. Remember that it is best to stay cool at all times when you have rosacea so don't get overheated if you are exercising - and steer clear of saunas. Coolness is key to rosacea care.
9. Use H-Rosacea Formula which is an all-natural product made from pure natural oils and is applied directly to the rosacea condition three times a day to help treat the symptoms of rosacea.
10. Watch your diet as certain foods can trigger a rosacea outbreak. These include spices, eggplant, soy sauce and even avocado. Keep a diary of your eating habits and if you notice a particular food leads to a sudden outbreak, you will have your culprit. At the same time reduce or eliminate any alcohol use. If you are concerned about which is the right product for you, then check with your dermatologist and remember to try and go the natural route whenever you can.
