Rosacea - continued

Yesterday, we spoke about what "rosacea" is, some possible causes and what some triggers to a flare up can be.

So today . . . let's talk about some other important elements we need to know.

Now . . . let's be clear on one thing . . . just because someone has this skin condition . . . doesn't mean that they don't wash there face well. In fact . . . most people with rosacea . . . wash their face too much.

You see . . . when we wash our face . . . and with what soap . . . is key to clear skin or a flare up. And many times . . . people with rosacea are using the wrong cleansers and washing too often because they think their pores aren't clean.

We need a skin cleanser specifically for "rosacea" because how we cleanse our face is very important to controlling flare ups. And if we don't . . . it now . . . becomes a vicious cycle of irritation.

The National Rosacea Society suggests that a gentle hygiene routine that involves washing the face twice a day with warm water, a non-soap cleanser and "BLOTTING" the face dry with a towel is recommended. (No wiping the face)

So avoiding a bar soap (especially deodorant soaps) which can strip the skin of its natural oils and choosing a liquid, foam or cream cleanser for gentle cleansing is the avenue to take.

Now . . . there are a lot of products out there on the market today for rosacea. But not all of them are pure enough to really get the job of proper cleansing done . . . without irritating the skin even more.

So I did a ton of research and I found a cleanser that worked like a champ for my loved ones in need. Sorry, I don't have a link for you, but if you need the information on this foaming facial cleanser, please DM me so I can get that info to you.

Okay . . . so now that we've washed our face correctly . . . how can we maintain the skin's moisture so we can heal and not have an uncomfortable flare up.

Well . . . tomorrow we'll talk about what combination of oils I found that can help to calm a flare up, clear the skin and leave it feeling moisturized.
