If you have rosacea, you know how difficult it is to find a skin care product that’s gentle enough to soothe the skin while powerful enough to keep flare-ups at bay. Between redness, spider veins, blemishes, and stinging skin, the symptoms of rosacea demand a lot of your skincare regimen!
Sufferers of this skin condition often feel uncertain about how to treat rosacea. Because so many beauty products exacerbate symptoms, people with rosacea sometimes feel that it’s not worth using any skin care products. Sadly, this belief can cause worsening of rosacea-related discomfort, and can also lead to dehydrated, lackluster skin.
Instead of staying away from skincare products altogether, consider taking the time to find the right combination for you! Using the tips below, you are sure to find a rosacea skin care regimen that can reduce symptoms while promoting healthy, beautiful skin.
Step 1: Cleanse
Choose a deeply hydrating cleanser that won’t strip your skin. Cleansers for normal to dry skin types are best, and try to find something that’s all-natural, or made with mostly natural ingredients.
As far as exfoliation is concerned, some rosacea-prone skin may be able to handle very gentle chemical exfoliants, while others will experience extreme irritation. Rather than risk an outbreak, content yourself with gentle exfoliation via a washcloth, using your rosacea face wash of choice.
Step 2: Moisturize
Moisturization is arguably the most important step in any rosacea skin care regimen. Keeping rosacea-prone skin hydrated is key to preventing the burning, stinging, and discomfort associated with rosacea.
Many skin care creams claim to be safe for sensitive skin, but they still contain fragrances, parabens, and other ingredients which can easily irritate rosacea-prone complexions. Instead, rosacea sufferers should opt for exceptionally gentle formulations, such as Atopalm’s Intensive Moisturizing Cream. Deeply moisturizing and truly gentle, Intensive Moisturizing Cream hydrates while improving clarity, reducing redness, eradicating irritation, and preventing future dryness.
Step 3: Protect
Rosacea-prone skin is very sensitive to sunlight. Because of this, rosacea sufferers should be sure to use sun block on a daily basis. Broad-spectrum sun blocks made with minerals tend to be the safest for rosacea skin, and the base should be emollient but free of irritants such as fragrances and harsh chemicals. Layered over Intensive Moisturizing Cream, a good sun block will allow your skin to face the day without incident, allowing you to remain free of stinging, redness, and dryness.
