Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition. Here are some tips on what should a rosacea home care regimen include...

choose a cleanser that is for sensitive skin. Avoid over cleansing the skin, which can damage the barrier function of the skin. An alcohol free toner that contains hydrators and soothing agents such as green tea or aloe.

A light weight broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Look for sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. the sunscreen agents keep the skin surface cooler. A specialty anti redness serum will contain soothing agents such as seawhip, green tea, or licorice extracts. Peptide technology can also help minimize redness. Moisturizers should be in the form of a fluid or lotion, as creams can be heavier and therefore warmer on the skin. Look for moisturizers that are designed specifically for redness prone skin and contain soothing ingredients.
