How Your Skincare Routine Can Affect Rosacea
Rosacea is a common skin disorder that affects an estimated 415 million people, including many celebrities like Lena Dunham, Sofia Vergara, and Bill Clinton. It usually begins to show itself with mild symptoms, including redness and the ability to flush or blush easier than other people. However, as the disorder progresses, symptoms can include dry, itchy skin and unsightly pustules. Prescription creams can sometimes be required to treat severe cases of rosacea, but if you’re not a fan of pharmaceuticals, here are a few things you can do to help minimize and prevent breakouts:
Do You Know What Triggers Your Breakouts?
Rosacea can be triggered by different things in different people, though some common causes of flare-ups include alcohol, stress, heat, hot beverages, and certain foods. You can discover your own triggers by keeping a daily diary of what you do and eat, and then look for common items on days you have breakouts.
Is Your Cleanser Working for You?
Overly drying cleansers can lead to breakouts by stripping your skin of its oils, thereby causing dryness and inflammation. Instead, try a gentle, soap-free cleanser that will remove the day’s grime without upsetting your sensitive skin.
What Type of Moisturizer Should You Use?
Certain types of moisturizers can wreak havoc on your skin if you’re prone to rosacea breakouts. You’ll want to use something that’s extremely gentle, and free of any harsh chemicals and irritating agents. Our specially-formulated face cream is packed with nutrients and vitamins to deliver intense hydration that lasts all day long.
With the highest concentration of all our products, our Say Aloe All-Day Face Cream is infused with aloe vera, algae, and hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize and soften skin. This lightweight day cream quenches your skin’s thirst and helps you achieve a bright, balanced, radiant look.
Don’t Overdo it with Skincare Products
Even if you’re using the right type of skincare products that are gentle on your sensitive, rosacea-prone skin, you’ll want to minimize the sheer number of products you use; you
can have too much of a good thing. Instead, simplify your skincare routine so you don’t strip your skin. A trusted 2-step cleanser-and-moisturizer regimen should do just fine!
