Despite the fact that millions of Americans suffer from rosacea, the skin condition continues to be mysterious. If you are among these victims, you know what a challenge it can be to treat it.
But, did you know there are four different types of rosacea?
Did you know that certain lifestyle changes can help provide relief for the condition?
Rosacea is a profound topic, which is why I recently developed a free downloadable guide to help you understand Rosacea - what it is and what you can do about it. In this guide, I share my personal experience with rosacea, as well as my more than 20 years of dermatology experience and research. It is a comprehensive guide complete with photos. I designed it with the goal of helping to educate you on how to recognize what your next steps should be to allow you to live happily, in spite of rosacea.
I also have an updated and concise Rosacea Advice Section on my web site where you can quickly find information to help you understand rosacea and see how I treat it in my dermatology practice.
What is the best skin care solution for rosacea?
The cornerstone of a rosacea skin care routine in my practice is my Redness Relief Kit. It includes Calming Zinc Soap for skin cleansing the delivers 2% pyrithione zinc to help fight some of what drives rosacea. The Kit also contains Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy, a powerhouse of antioxidant polyphenols to help skin stand up to stressors such as the inflammatory cascade that leads to inflammation in rosacea.
I also always recommend a hypoallergenic moisturizer be layered over the green tea. That's because one of the problems with rosacea is that skin barrier integrity is defective. This heals best when skin is kept well hydrated. My top moisturizer choice for rosacea-prone complexions is my Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Normal to Dry or Normal to Oily Skin.
Today, however, I want to share a snapshot of rosacea facts and tips that are detailed further in the guide in the following infographic:
