Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disease that affects many people.
What are the signs? One of the early warning signs is a persistent redness in the affected area of your face or elsewhere on your body that does not go away.
The rash may have a mild burning sensation, as some people with this disease have reported that their skin stings during breakouts. It may also have a rough or scaly texture.
The question is, how do you treat red skin?
Setting up a good skin care routine is the first step in the treatment of rosacea. Your routine should be as simple as possible. To reduce redness and soothe irritation, I recommend a combination of protective, soothing and restorative ingredients.
Choose a nourishing and gentle cleanser that won't harm your skin's delicate pH balance while removing dirt, SPF and makeup. When taking a bath, make sure the water temperature is not too hot. Hot showers can worsen any redness and make your skin dehydrated.
Soothe, repair and protect
To calm redness, you need a soothing skincare routine with ingredients that repairs the skin's barrier, keeps it hydrated and fights inflammation.
Here are some of the ingredients you should include in your skin care products.
Ceramides play a crucial role in keeping the skin hydrated and protecting it from environmental influences. Unfortunately, our ceramide supply declines as we age, and a ceramide deficiency is often blamed for a variety of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and dry skin.
There are many antioxidants in green tea. Antioxidants help reduce inflammation, which includes skin problems. The best way to treat rosacea is to use skin care products that contain green tea.
Niacinamide is also known as vitamin B3, which is another name for it. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, niacinamide can make redness appear less severe, which is especially beneficial for people struggling with rosacea. It also protects the skin from free radical damage due to its powerful antioxidant properties.
Centella Asiatica is a very soothing ingredient that has a lot of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Centella Asiatica is able to make the skin less red, stop water loss, keep the skin moist and soothe it.
While using your daily SPF won't reduce redness that's already present, it will protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays that can damage your skin and cause sunburn. I suggest using a physical or mineral SPF filter because chemical SPFs can irritate the skin of people with very sensitive skin.
Pay close attention to your rosacea symptoms as you adjust to your new skin care routine. If they get worse or don't improve in two to four weeks, you should see a dermatologist.
