A closer look at rosacea

Do you experience persistent facial redness or flushing and blushing? If so, you’re not alone. April is Rosacea Awareness Month, and this condition affects 45 million people worldwide. But despite being so common, the root cause of rosacea remains unknown.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is exacerbated by environmental triggers. Insults such as UV exposure, extreme weather, spicy

foods, alcohol, and stress prompt the inflammation cascade that causes surface blood vessels to dilate, leading to visible redness and discomfort. Since rosacea can vary in severity, many cases of rosacea go untreated.

The key to controlling rosacea is avoiding and treating the triggers that stimulate nerve endings and lead to the flushing and discomfort. Anti-inflammatory skincare ingredients can ease the visible symptoms, and prescription topical medications, antibiotics, and treatments such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) can also improve the condition.

Product regimen

C E Ferulic® + Redness Neutralizer

C E Ferulic works in tandem with Redness Neutralizer to further prevent the inflammation cascade that causes rosacea symptoms. This topical antioxidant neutralises the reactive oxygen species (otherwise known as free radicals) that create inflammation and damage within skin. The blend of pure stabilised 15% vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid has been proven to prevent signs of premature ageing and protect against redness caused by exposure to UV light, which is one of the main rosacea triggers.

C E Ferulic is the perfect anti-ageing product for rosacea skin. This serum’s simple formula contains non-irritating ingredients that replenish the skin’s lipids and increases collagen synthesis to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Professional procedure:
IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

Rosacea can be successfully treated with office-based IPL treatments. This procedure uses short bursts of high-intensity light to break up the melanin that causes brown discolouration as well as repair broken capillaries, which lead to the visible redness associated with rosacea. Most patients say that IPL treatments feel like a series of rubber-band snaps. The skin may be temporarily red after these treatments.
