Do you suffer from redness and facial flushing? Does it get you down, make you hide away or use lots of make up? It can be hard to establish the causes of redness and irritation but it could be a very common condition known as Rosacea. April is Rosacea awareness month which aims to help sufferers learn more about this condition.
Rosacea is more common than you think and sufferers tend to have redness in the centre of their face and very sensitive skin. This can be accompanied by broken capillaries and, in the case of acne rosacea, breakouts. Symptoms can be triggered by many things. Environmental factors such as heat, cold or wind can exaggerate the condition, as can physical exercise. Dietary choices such as consuming alcohol, spicy food or even cheese may also make things worse. Stress can also be a major factor.
Learning to avoid triggers, using calming skincare ranges, and ensuring your products are free from any known irritants will help. Look for brands which display "free from" logos and explore ranges which are recommended for sensitive skin.
Follow these easy skincare tips:
- Avoid artificial scents and colorants
- Use a serum with calming benefits aimed at reducing redness and flushing
- Use a daily broad spectrum SPF to protect against damaging UVA and UVB rays
- Use a cooling, calming spritz throughout the day
- Consult with your skincare therapist / facialist for advise on the best course of facial treatments for you
- If concerned contact your GP for further advice
If you do suffer from Rosacea you are in good company. The beautiful Lisa Faulker, actress, presenter and chef says in the latest Woman&Home Feel Good You Magazine that "I have Rosacea and ARK Skincare completely changed the look and feel of my skin in a matter of weeks. I love it, especially the de-stress serum and the age defend moisturiser." To learn more about the products she uses click on the link below.
