Lets talk about Rosacea.According to the NHS, Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. It’s more common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men. Treatment can help with symptoms.

Rosacea is one of the hardest skin conditions to treat as it’s relatively unknown where it stems from. It’s considered to be an inflammatory disorder due to an altered innate immune response. An underlying genetic predisposition may also explain rosacea as up to a third of patients have a family history.

As there is no known cure, the key to dealing with Rosacea is learning how to manage it and keeping it as calm and under control as possible. Keeping Skin hydrated, PH balanced and the least irritated as possible is the best thing to keep rosacea as calm as can be. Using ingredients like Hyaluronic acids, growth factors, peptides, rose waters, Vitamin B5s and a broad spectrum SPFs should be a necessity and a basic in any Rosacea prone skincare regime.

The skin’s barrier integrity in rosacea is weak. Preventing skin dryness is important for strengthening this skin barrier so that rosacea-prone skin is less sensitive. Unlike regular acne (acne vulgaris), acne rosacea is not worsened if you apply oil and hydrating moisturizers to your skin.
