Get Rosacea Under Control Using These Steps

Please note the recommendations here are not intended as medical advice. Please consult your physician for medical advice.

Rosacea is a skin condition in which skin is red with visible blood vessels. It may include small, red, pimple-like or cyst-like bumps. It can affect anyone but is more common in a middle-aged woman who has light skin. However, dark skin can be affected by it as well.

Treating the redness and inflammation and preventing flare-ups is key to keeping this condition under control. 

Rosacea can last for weeks and even months and what causes an outbreak can vary from person to person. Anything from hot beverages to spicy foods can cause flare-ups. Alcohol, temperature extremes, sunlight, wind, stress, vigorous exercise, drugs including blood pressure medications, and cosmetics can also contribute to a flare-up.

Many self-diagnosis but it’s important to get your doctor’s feedback because other conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, or lupus can sometimes cause symptoms similar to those of Rosacea.

It is important to learn what aggravates yours. Keeping a journal for 30 days can help you discover patterns. You’d simply note the dates/times you’re having a flare up and list any physical activity, food, beverages, environment (cool, hot, humid, dry), any medications, and products you’re using on your skin. Over a period of time, a pattern will form helping you to know what to avoid, plus, you can use the following to treat the redness, inflammation and bumps.

Topical Treatment Recommendations

Again, this is not medical advice. I am just sharing what I’ve seen work for my clients and customers. Anytime you introduce new products, GO SLOW. If directions are twice daily, begin with once daily. Give your skin time to adjust and you’ll have better success at finding what works.

Using a gentle, non-irritating cleanser is important. I recommend the NeoGenesis Cleanser because it works well to cleanse the skin without stripping the skin barrier and avoiding irritating already sensitive skin.

The skin’s natural barrier is often damaged by this condition so restoring the skin barrier is the first step in your line of defense against outbreaks and inflammation. NeoGenesis Barrier Renewal Cream is the perfect serum for combating Rosacea. It contains ingredients known to restore the skin barrier and sooth any irritation.

NeoGenesis Recovery will aid in the healing of any existing blemishes. NeoGenesis Recovery also speeds the treatment inflammation and irritation. Often after one application the redness can be reduced by half. I challenge you to take a picture of your face before and 20 minutes after treatment. You’ll be amazed!

I often recommend Sleep On It Vegan Retinol become part of your Rosacea treatment regimen. It contains ingredients that will feed your skin with nutrients it needs to stay healthy. From gentle vegan retinol,  MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) to Niacinmide (vitamin B3) to thwart a Vitamin B3 deficiency that causes excessive dryness, skin lesions, and sensitivity to sunlight. From hyaluronic acid to improve moisture retention to Beta-glucan a ‘protect and repair’ molecule as it increases natural self-protecting capabilities of the skin and also accelerates skin recovery. Because this product is encapsulated it will not irritate the skin like some retinols can.

Between learning what causes your flare-ups and taking action to avoid these things, to using high performance, quality products, you can successfully get Rosacea under control.

What You Need to Know About Muscle Memory, Facial Massage, and Gua Sha

February 12, 2021

Muscle memory probably isn’t something you’ve thought about when it comes to your face, right? You’ve likely only heard about muscle memory in the context of working out at the gym. But what you need to know is muscle memory is part of what contributes to advanced aging of the face. It contributes to deep wrinkles, pesky frown lines at the corners of the mouth, and those vertical creases in between your eyes and other such etchings on the face.

Please don’t think this means you have to learn facial exercises because those can actually cause more problems. The muscles on the face are much more delicate than the large muscles on the body and this calls for more delicate and precise treatments.
