Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is estimated to affect 16 million Americans alone. Many of my readers have expressed concerns about their Rosacea. What exactly is Rosacea and what can be done to treat it? Today, we’ll take a look at the symptoms and treatment options. We’ll also examine which ingredients to avoid in your cosmetics and skin care routine is you suffer from this chronic condition.

Rosacea Symptoms

  • Visible blood vessels

  • Skin tends to flush easily and it often looks like you’re blushing

  • Swelling of the eyelids and watery eyes

  • Soreness and itching of the skin

  • Bumpy and rough skin texture

  • Pus-filled pimples

  • Skin is almost always red and inflamed

If you’re experiencing 2 or more of the above symptoms, you will want to visit a dermatologist because you may just be suffering from Rosacea. There is still no exact cause of Rosacea, despite years of research. Even though there is no set cause, there are several known triggers. Being aware of these triggers and avoiding them may help to reduce Rosacea flare-ups.

Rosacea Triggers

  • Emotional stress

  • Exposure to the sun

  • Sweating and overheating due to exercise

  • Hot weather

  • Eating spicy foods

  • Drinking hot beverages such as coffee or tea

  • Saunas and hot baths

  • Consuming alcoholic beverages

  • Artificial fragrances and dyes

  • Cosmetic and skin care ingredients such as alcohol, menthol, peppermint, clove, and eucalyptus

Skincare for Rosacea: What You Can Do

There is no one size fits all product when it comes to caring for this condition. Finding the best skin care regimen for your type of Rosacea is key. While some with this condition may have very oily skin, others have dehydrated skin. The key with all types of Rosacea, though, is treating inflammation.

Using a gentle facial cleanser without artificial fragrances is your best bet for Rosacea.

Regular self care using an exfoliant to help shed dead skin cells is especially important for those with Rosacea, but it is crucial for you not to use anything too harsh. You will want a product with natural white willow bark extract to gently slough away dead skin cells, draw out excess sebum from the pores, and calm your irritated skin.

You do not have to spend a fortune on products to relieve your Rosacea symptoms. Of my many years in the skincare field, I have seen many products offering many promises--most of them being empty. The ingredients listings on the bottle simply didn't mesh with the product claims.

What to buy

I recently found a doctor-developed brand of skincare made in the USA called ZENMED. I can personally vouch for this brand, as I use their 3-step facial care myself. I also can tell you that the ingredients in the ZENMED 3-step skin support system for Rosacea. This company, unlike any others, understands that people with Rosacea can suffer from either dry or oily skin. As I have said before, Rosacea isn't one size fits all, nor should Rosacea skincare products. They offer two different systems for those with Rosacea; you simply choose dry skin or oily skin.
