Let's talk about Rosacea.
April is Rosacea Awareness Month and we know first-hand how upsetting and stressful this condition can be.
Rosacea is a common skin condition, it's hereditary and affects nearly 6% of the global population. What is it? An inflammatory reaction that causes impaired skin barrier function resulting in facial flushing, redness, irritated skin and breakouts. What causes it? No one's 100% sure.
One of the best ways of managing Rosacea is to discover it's triggers. Some of the most common are exercise, spicy food, red wine and alcohol (particularly wine containing additives like sulphates), dairy, tomatoes, citrus foods, hot drinks, sun exposure or wind and extreme temperatures. Keep a 'trigger diary' to see what causes your flare-ups.
Skincare can help
Skin can feel hot, hypersensitive even painful and sore, so anti-inflammatory products with actives that boost collagen production but also strengthen collagen fibres are ideal to help reduce symptoms and strengthen weak capillary walls.
Try our Rest Day Cleansing Milk
A gentle, non-drying and soothing cleanser like our Rest Day Cleansing Milk is best to help calm Rosacea symptoms. Containing Oat Ceramides, organic Cactus Extract, Probiotics and Vitamin B5 to help restore the lipid barrier.
Try our Isotonic Hydra-Serum
A lightweight deeply hydrating, calming and soothing serum that can be worn undetected under moisturiser or SPF to keep skin balanced, calm and redness reduced.
Try our Rest Day Comfort Cream
A nurturing moisturiser designed with our Bio-Mimetic Nutri-Barrier Complex that supports and restores each of the skin's vital barrier functions.
Try our MSM Bio-Plus
MSM is a naturally occuring organic sulphur compound found in every living cell. It acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory which in turn can reduce skin flushing and supports collagen production to help keep skin firm and capillaries strong. It is also vital to a vast range of biological processes including glutathione, collagen, amino-acid and keratin production.
