Rosacea is a skin condition which typically appears on the face and can affect both men and women. While the main symptom is redness, it can also leave your skin feeling rather sore and tender.
Recent studies have shown that around 1 in 10 people in the UK suffer from rosacea – meaning you are not alone! Although there is no cure, rosacea is manageable through a better understanding of its triggers and by taking care of your skin with regular treatments.
How to treat rosacea
Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to lessen the severity of your rosacea and alleviate any of the symptoms you may be suffering from. Here are our top tips!
1) Use quality suncream
Spending lots of time in the sun can trigger rosacea. So, one way in which you can help prevent rosacea on a daily basis is through a daily skincare routine that includes sun cream before you spend time outside. Be sure to take care of your skin using a cream with an SPF of at least 15. Many moisturisers come with an SPF already built into them.
Remember, the sun can damage your skin even when it does not appear to be a warm day!
Microdermabrasion is a popular and painless skin care treatment which helps to remove dead skin cells from your face, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated in the process. Though it is typically used to treat acne and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it has also been noted to help lessen the appearance of rosacea.
Cryotherapy, or a cryotherapy facial, refers to the use of low temperatures for the removal of skin imperfections, such as the redness caused by rosacea. It can also be used to treat skin tags and warts.
