Natural Skincare for Sensitive Skin prone to Rosacea

Natural Skincare for Sensitive Skin prone to Rosacea
The cause of Rosacea isn’t fully understood, it can be confused with eczema, it’s mainly seen on the face but sometimes will affect other areas of the body.. It can be more common in woman especially those with pale skin. Symptoms include flushing, burning, stinging, redness, spots and visible blood vessels. It’s believed that some things can worsen symptoms during flair up; these include spicy foods, hot drinks, alcohol, extreme temperatures, sun exposure, anxiety and stress. Treatments from the doctor may include antibiotics and topical creams but there are self care options.

- Keep a diary tracking your lifestyle and flair ups this may help you discover a trigger so you can avoid them.

- Try a “less is more” approach to your skincare and opt for products that are gentle, redness reducing and free from perfume and alcohol 
- Incorporate SPF into your routine 
- Avoid using rough cloths or sponges 
- Understandably your confidence may be affected; you can try using green tinted cosmetics to help camouflage redness

Since skincare for sensitive skin is my passion, I can guide you towards brands that you may wish to consider for skin prone to rosacea. 

Angela Langford suggest a skincare regime of their gentle cleanser, clean sweep and night balm, rest & regenerate.

Antipodes Grace Cream Cleanser & Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream are gentle products which I personally love to use 

Green People Scent Free Range is a good all-rounder for those with skin sensitivity 

Joanna Naturals So Calm Facial Oil has been blended specifically with rosacea in mind Currently retailing exclusively with Baldwins of London. 

Lyonsleaf  suggest using their Beauty Balm and Zinc and Calendula Cream

Odylique suggest their Calming Rose Super Tonic, Timeless Rose Moisturiser and Creamy Coconut Cleanser (affiliate link & code SUGARPUFFISH for 20% off)

Pai Skincare is formulated with sensitive skins in mind; their Instant Calm Sea Aster & Wild Oat Anti-Redness Serum could be worth consideration 

PHB Ethical Beauty Gentle range is ideal for sensitive skin and fragrance free so this eliminates the associated allergens.
