Treatment For Rosacea
Treatment for rosacea is only effective if you use the right type of rosacea soap, creams, and lotions. Regardless of your causes of rosacea, there are two basic types – dry skin rosacea and oily skin rosacea. But you can't tell this by looking at rosacea pictures.
The problem is many over the counter preparations are too harsh and severely over dry your face …..leading to more flare-ups.
Also, chances are that rosacea soap you’re using doesn’t cleanse your skin well enough – which can lead to acne - a problem that sometimes go hand in hand with this condition.
Flaky dry skin happens to almost half of rosacea sufferers, unfortunately, so you are not alone, but understanding the causes of rosacea is the first step to helping you treating it.
Causes of Rosacea
Scientists don’t know the exact causes of rosacea according to the Mayo Clinic. But what they do know is that it is a combination of things, including heredity, like are you of Celtic or Nordic descent with very fair skin and very pale blue or green eyes, diet, stress and medication can all factor into to how bad the rosacea can be.
Most rosacea sufferers can point to someone in their family and tell you who else has it. What we do know is that things like extremes in weather, spicy foods, stress or embarrassment, and medications, especially blood pressure and some heart medications can all exacerbate rosacea.
Rosacea soaps – Dry Skin Treatment for Rosacea
Treatment for rosacea can range from topical creams and ointments to antibiotics to laser treatments and everything in between. The problem is that many of these treatments are harsh, and leave your skin feeling itchy, tight and burning, and if they make you feel uncomfortable, you aren’t going to continue with them.
Finding the right rosacea soap and serums to cleanse and hydrate your face is the key to keeping your skin healthy.
While it’s not going to cure the rosacea, it is going to help you to put your best face forward - and reduce those nasty symptoms associated with this skin disorder.
One thing is for certain, you don’t want to use something like Ivory soap on your skin. It may be ninety nine percent pure, but it will dry out your skin in a heartbeat, and if your skin is already dry and over sensitive, that’s a recipe for disaster!
What you do want is a cleanser that is mild but effective, a super hydrating herbal moisturizer serum, and a soothing mask that will reduce redness and swelling - and most important – flare-ups.
For faster, better results try to use a mask that contains willow bark extract. This is extract is wonderful for reducing redness, flaking, and inflammation. A few applications of this can help improve the look and feel of your skin ASAP!
Treatment for rosacea and the dry skin that goes with it is about being gentle and kind to your skin, so that your inner glow can shine through your outer glow.
