Is rosacea leaving skin sensitive? Shake things up with powder cleansers

Powdered cleansers – like mineral makeups – use lightweight and finely ground ingredients to transformative effects. With just a drop of water, they create a smooth paste that acts as a gentle cleanser and exfoliant. While good for all skin types, powdered cleansers are especially effective for those with rosacea, as their fine texture and mix of minerals, botanicals, and enzymes can soothe as well as clean the skin.

Dry skin and inflammation

There's a scientific connection between why the cold exacerbates redness and inflammation. During times of low humidity (such as the winter months, or in dry climates), the skin may crack deeply due to lack of moisture. This disrupts dermal capillaries, and bleeding may occur—which is not visible, as it happens on a microscopic level.Read More >

Hair




This spring, waxing perfection

Hair removal is war, not just against the follicles, but against the bumps they leave behind. When a strand of hair isn’t entirely removed, the remaining root can get trapped under sebum (oil), dead skin, and dirt. This can lead to an inflamed, pimple-like bump, which can be painful and unsightly. What to do about it? Dot the area with a product containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide in the morning and at night.Read More >

Keep your workout red hot-not your skin

A lot of us begin our New Year’s Resolution by kick-starting our fitness regimen. But for women with rosacea or sensitive skin, winter workouts pose an additional challenge. They may notice that after a strenuous workout, their skin (especially their face) becomes a deep pink. So what is the reason behind this color change? People with rosacea have more broken capillaries, so any vasodilation caused by working out makes the red much more prominent.Read More >

Feel the burn? Try these tips to soothe your skin

With sunburns, it's all about getting the inflammation down as soon as possible to curb damage in the skin and to calm redness. Soak a soft facecloth in a bowl of skim milk and ice, and apply it to the area for 5 to 10 minutes. Also, try taking aspirin or ibuprofen, and apply an aloe gel to soothe the skin and reduce swelling. (We recommend chilling your aloe gel in the freezer for maximum cooling relief.) If your sunburn is so severe you have chills or a fever, contact your doctor immediately.
