Rosacea is characterized as an external response on the skin to an internal trigger. There are many theories as to what causes Rosacea but can include factors such as diet, poor circulation, or increased mites on the skin. All can lead to chronic redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that may disappear and reappear with flare ups. If left untreated, it can cause dilated blood vessels, excess tissue growth, and permeant redness & inflammation.
These skins are sensitive and quickly react to inferior products containing dyes, preservatives, and fragrance. To treat this skin type it’s important to focus on strengthening the skin, reducing redness & inflammation, and providing anti-bacterial support.
The great news about Rosacea is that it can be lessened and kept under control with a diligent regimen. Remember that Rosacea is a skin concern, so even though we recommend looking at internal factors to begin with, you absolutely have to use external products to help. The RA philosophy on Rosacea is your ultimate guide to relief!
- Reduce Redness and Inflammation
- Replenish Fibroblast and Barrier Function
- Reduce Cellular Buildup and Negative Pathogens
- Revive Cellular Energy
Reduce Redness and Inflammation
Redness is one of the key signs to rosacea. We use science-driven ingredients like heart of green and sea buckthorn oil to reduce redness and inflammation and bring calming and soothing properties to the skin.
Replenish Fibroblast and Barrier Function
A barrier that functions optimally is crucial to any rosacea skin, reducing reactiveness and assisting in keeping harmful pathogens out. Amino acids promote healing in the skin and nourishing oils, including omegas 3 and 6, fortify the skin, strengthen the cellular wall and increase barrier function. These are a must have for replenishing relief!
Fibroblast cells are vital for healthy skin and become depleted faster with rosacea skin. It is extremely important to introduce encapsulated retinaldehyde to replenish these cells and improve skin’s strength and elasticity.
Reduce Cellular Buildup and Negative Pathogens
Rosacea skins are prone to extreme inflammation, uneven texture and thickening of the skin. Salicylic and mandelic acids work to increase exfoliation, reducing cellular buildup and uneven texture in the skin. The results are visibly clear and smooth!
Harmful parasites such as demodex mites are shown to be three times more prevalent and aggravating on Rosacea. In addition, these skins are also prone to blemishes that are a result of harmful bacteria being trapped in the skin. To provide relief and eradicate these pathogens, we use ingredients like totarol, rosemary extract and salicylic acid.
Revive Cellular Energy
Optimizing the energy within the cells will also lead to life-long control for rosacea. When skin is compromised and vulnerable, cell energy is being overused and replenishment is necessary. Using ingredients to ignite energy, restore proper cell function and strengthen cells is crucial. With the use of pyruvic acid and encapsulated retinaldehyde (vitamin A), a reduction in redness and flare-ups and better tone and texture will occur. Even rosacea skins can have a youthful glow!
