November 12, 2021 | Advice from Nairian co-founder and lead chemist Anahit Markosyan.
Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by the expansion of small, superficial vessels of the face, which may lead to bumps that look a bit like acne.
This condition is very common and often chronic.
Unfortunately, many make a number of mistakes that can only exacerbate this skin condition. Therefore, using the correct skincare products is very important to avoid further complications.
Skincare products to use for Rosacea-prone skin
Gentle and mild skincare products should be used in order to not cause excessive skin irritation, as that can increase the risk of inflammation.
It is necessary to keep the skin clean from both dirt and makeup residues. Facial cleansers should be gentle and non-irritating to the skin. The Nairian Cleanser is definitely recommended. This cream perfectly cleanses facial oils, makeup and dust. In addition, this Cleanser allows for regulating oil production on the skin, unlike soaps, which strip the skin of its natural oils.
It is also very important to moisturize the skin properly and protect it from extra dryness as that could also irritate those suffering from Rosacea. For this purpose, we recommend using moisturizing creams that are as mild as possible, such as Nairian Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin, which can be used during the day and the Rosehip Serum during the night.
Should those with Rosacea stay out of the sun?
The sun can certainly be a source of irritation for Rosacea prone skin, but that does not mean that those with Rosacea can’t enjoy the sun. You just need to know that in this case it is necessary to always use sunscreen. It is important for a person with Rosacea to only use mineral sunscreen and avoid chemical sunscreens containing oxybenzone and other similar chemical agents in order to avoid possible irritation. Nairian sunscreens are the best solution, because they contain only mineral-protective substances, with little aroma.
Is it possible to wear makeup or can it also cause skin irritation?
If you want to wear makeup in order to cover the excess redness on your skin, you can use our Color-Correction Creams (CC Creams), which contain only mineral pigments and protective moisturizing substances.
