April is Rosacea awareness month. False Creek Skin Solution Clinic is more than happy to assist in raising awareness of this far-flung chronical skin disorder. Good news Rosacea can be controlled or even reversed with the adequate Rosacea skin care regimen.
When it comes to Rosacea the fact number one is: there is no total cure. Don’t be disappointed! As we already said, this type of skin disorder can be controlled. First thing first: taking proper care of your skin.
Rosacea Skin Care Regimen
When we talk about Rosacea friendly skin care, we have in mind the products that can help your skin feel more comfortable, reduce the flare-ups and boost overall skin health.
Step 1: Cleanse twice a day with a mild cleanser. Choosing a good quality cleanser is essential for any skincare routine. Simply, no matter how expensive is your daily or night cream, a good quality cleanser will prepare the skin for the treatment. Any Rosacea friendly cream will penetrate deeper if the skin is well clean and ready to absorb. The main purpose of a cleanser is to get rid of bacteria, oil, and excess makeup and at the same time not to damage the skin. Rosacea patients already feel irritated, so many of them avoid washing the face too regularly. It’s understandable: a cleanser that scratches your face will only aggravate the symptoms, no matter how good it is.
Our recommendation: ZO Medical Foamacleanse Gentle Foaming Cleanser removes all traces of makeup and oil without drying out your skin.
Step 2: Choose a mild and effective moisturizer + Rosacea friendly serum.
Furthermore, it’s important to moisturize rosacea-prone skin. Well-hydrated skin results in more comfortable skin and reduces the irritation.
- ZO® Skin Health Ommerse Renewal Crème is a lightweight hydrating cream infused with antioxidants for gentle skin repair.
- ZO Rosatrol Normalizing Serum is just a perfect daily treatment serum for red, sensitized skin which works to normalize skin by reducing excess oil.
Step 4. The Sunscreen. Since the sun is one of the biggest triggers of Rosacea, the advice is to try to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. So hard to avoid! That’s why it’s crucial to wear sunscreen every day, all year long, regardless of the weather conditions.
Our recommendation: ZO Oclipse Sunscreen+primer SPF 30.
Among all, in order to keep rosacea under control, a lifelong commitment means avoiding triggers such as sun exposure, emotional stress, spicy food an alcohol, etc.
For more severe cases of Rosacea, False Creek Skin Solution Team recommends in-office treatments. Reduce redness with the right combination of Laser Genesis, IPL photofacial and vascular lasers and daily at-home skin care products.
