Why rich,thick moisturisers aren’t always best for rosacea
Why rich,thick moisturisers aren’t always best for rosacea prone skin 🧴
Moisturisers create a barrier that lock out irritants and help keep symptoms at bay, but choosing the wrong one can actually make your redness worse. Choose a moisturiser that’s oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic. The less ingredients the better as this minimises the risk of a reaction.
Rosacea often involves a defective moisture barrier in the facial skin, this in turn contributes to the skin’s irritability and susceptibility to inflammation. In addition, rosacea usually appears after the age of 30, when facial skin naturally becomes drier, it is thought that approximately half of all rosacea sufferers experience dry skin. Winter or dry weather may especially pose difficulties for rosaceans as dry air — both outdoors as well as in buildings that are central heated — intensifies the challenge to already-sensitive skin.
Fix your skin barrier first and work your way up. I use Cerave PM both morning & night. ❤️🩹
