Skin Care Tips for Rosacea

November 08, 2016

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is estimated to affect 16 million Americans alone. 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.

 

Seed talks about rosacea

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

Skin Care 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.  A gentle toner with natural ingredients such cucumber and aloe vera will soothe the toner is a great option for this type of skin.

Another important product for you to use daily is sunscreen.  Since sun exposure is known to trigger the condition, applying sunscreen each day is a must.  Look for a natural sunscreen with zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide to help protect your skin.

For your moisturizing needs, choose a fragrance free daily moisturizer with calming aloe and cucumber to help soothe and pamper as it nourishes.

If your skin does not improve after trying these tips, be sure to see a dermatologist because a prescription topical cream may be necessary.

On the Seed blog today, we are sharing the clinical science behind Vitamin E and skin care, as well as ways it will help improve the appearance of your skin.

What is Vitamin E?

Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that can help repair damaged cells. Naturally occurring Vitamin E includes eight different isoforms. These include alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocopherol and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocotienol.

Vitamin E is one of the most studied skin vitamins because it was discovered so long ago. In fact, it was back in the early 1920s when Berkeley biologists Dr. Herbert Evans and Dr. Katherine Bishop made the discovery.
