Sensitive Skin & Rosacea
Skin that easy flushes is often referred to as Couperose, whereas skin that is permanently flushed is called Rosacea.
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disorder affecting 10% of the population. It occurs mostly in fair-skinned females over the age of 30, but. can also occur in men. The exact cause is not known. However there can be many triggers; leaky gut, thinner skin and irritants that are used on the skin such as cosmetics with a high alcohol content. Symptoms include dilated capillaries, inflammation, transient or persistent facial flushing, papule/pustules, pain or stinging skin, itchy skin, extreme skin dryness and dehydration.
Skin cleansing is important to remove pollution, cosmetics and bacteria. Moisturisers support the skin barrier and provide hydration. To reduce irritation, sunscreens are essential, especially physical sunscreens that contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are best as they sit on the skin, and contain fewer irritants than their chemical counterparts.
Serums should contain antioxidants for their anti-inflammatory action. Great ingredients are Ginko biloba, green tea, Aloe vera, allantoin and liquorice. Vitamin A or retinol need to be lower strength and encapsulated to help assist in exfoliation, but without stripping the skin.
