This condition will vary depending on the individual, from occasional flare-ups to constant symptoms with fluctuating degrees of stability. Typical symptoms include:
persistently red flushed face (cheeks, forehead, chin, nose)
visible facial blood vessels
red spots/bumps on the face
dry, flaky, sensitive skin
a red, bulbous nose with thickened skin and an uneven texture
a burning sensation in the eyes, irritated eyelids
The best approach for staying on top of Rosacea is to seek calming anti-inflammatory ingredients with skin-strengthening properties, including prebiotic/probiotics, niacinamide (Vitamin B3) serums, Vitamin A serums, and zinc oxide-based sun protection. Other beneficial active ingredients include acid-free chemical exfoliants, and anti-irritant facial moisturisers with sea buckthorn, squalane and peptides with targeted anti-inflammatory benefits.
Together, these products will soothe facial redness, minimise the appearance of visible fine blood vessels, and reduces itchiness as well as discomfort of heat.
