Rosacea is a frustrating skin condition that begins slowly, with the intermittent appearance of redness along the cheeks and nose. Skin flare-ups can persist for a period of weeks to months and then diminish before flaring up again. If left untreated, rosacea usually worsens.
Many mistaken rosacea for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problem. That’s why the National Rosacea Society has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to alert the public to the signs of this chronic and often progressive facial disorder.
In a National Rosacea Society survey of 1,066 patients, 41 percent reported that certain skin-care products aggravated their condition and 27 percent said certain cosmetics also caused rosacea flare-ups.
Good skin care is a smart idea for everyone, but it is especially important for those who have rosacea or are using topical medicine to treat this condition. That’s because people with rosacea have extreme skin sensitivity so good skincare and makeup products specifically tailored for this condition can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.
Those suffering from rosacea should avoid using any products that burn, sting or irritate their skin. Many with rosacea have identified alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus oil, clove oil and salicylic acid as irritants, and many also avoid astringents and exfoliating agents. A useful rule of thumb is to select products that contain no irritating or unnecessary ingredients.
