Rosacea and Acne Rosacea Skin Care
Rosacea is a fairly stubborn and persistent skin condition which typically requires ongoing treatment. The official definition of the rosacea skin disorder is “A chronic dermatitis of the face, especially of the nose and cheeks, characterized by a red or rosy coloration, caused by dilation of capillaries, and the appearance of acne like pimples. Also called acne rosacea.” Note that you can now submit your own reviews of rosacea and acne rosacea skin care products and/or supplements below.
Now, there is also a skin disorder which is practically synonymous with rosacea called “acne rosacea”, which involves the same flushing and redness as mentioned in the rosacea definition above, but also includes the occurrence of acne lesions, just as with acne vulgaris. Please see some of the product recommendations for the effective treatment of rosacea and acne rosacea below (there is also an oral herbal remedy for rosacea that works very well for many people).
The reason I recommend this particular line of rosacea and acne rosacea treatments is that they are 100% natural and non irritating, and have soothing botanicals. They are actually proven to work on this skin disorder too, and they are credible too, because they’ve actually been featured in several high profile magazines and publications and reviewed very well. Their spa product line offers anti redness masks, serums, skin health supplements and washes that take the red out and bring your skin back to it’s beautiful natural tone, color and texture.
Yep, acne rosacea is a difficult to treat, double whammy of a skin condition. Acne alone is hard enough to treat and deal with on a daily basis, add the redness and flushing of rosacea, and you’ve got a really tough problem to address, but with the right products you can soothe, heal and eliminate the redness and bumps.
Environmental Factors that Aggravate Rosacea and Acne Rosacea
Sunlight – People with rosacea are particularly photosensitive (sensitive to the sunlight in other words). Exposure to sunlight can exacerbate rosacea and acne rosacea and cause even more unwanted flareups.
Hot beverages and hot foods
Stress – emotional and physical
Environmental (temperature) heat
It is important to note, that while rosacea cannot be “cured” it certainly can be treated effectively either under the care of a dermatologist, which admittedly can get expensive, especially since the care would need to be constant, and can also be successfully treated by caring for it yourself, with your own chosen products for rosacea which you would be using daily as your skin care regimen in place of other common drugstore soaps, cleansers, creams etc that are probably doing your skin more harm than good.
Medical, or dermatologist administered treatments for rosacea and acne rosacea include the following:
Generally speaking, different oral and topical antibiotics, and other special medications, are prescribed to treat the bumps, pimples and redness often associated with the two closely related skin conditions.
If deemed as needed, laser treatments or other surgical procedures may be used to remove or help lessen the appearance of visible blood vessels, reduce obvious, inflamed looking redness or correct any resulting disfigurement of the nose.
- Rosacea patients are also advised to identify and avoid lifestyle and environmental factors that may aggravate their individual conditions.
- Other anti inflammatory medications and herbal remedies may be prescribed as well, since rosacea and acne rosacea are, by their nature, and inflammatory skin disease, these usually help. Who wants to be on an anti inflammatory indefinitely though?
- There are a number of remedies out there on the market right now that help reduce facial flushing and redness due to the rosacea skin disorder. It’s a matter of controlling your face’s reaction to certain stimuli, and these remedies can help cut the redness out greatly.
