Best Face Cream For Rosacea and Tips on What to Avoid

A face cream for rosacea may be effective if it includes essential nutrients and natural anti-inflammatories. The problem is that most creams on the market contain ingredients that can cause additional redness, itching, irritation and contribute to, rather than reducing, inflammation. Here’s how to tell the difference:

Most people suffering from the chronic redness have several things in common. One is that their skin is sensitive to temperature changes and irritants of other kinds. It’s hardly possible to avoid temperature changes unless you live in the tropics. But, it is possible to avoid other irritants.

It can be difficult, though, because most major cosmetics are literally packed full of skin irritants. There are no rules requiring that manufacturers limit the number or amount of irritants included in a cosmetic, except in the case of a handful of hazardous toxins. One would think that toxins wouldn’t be included in skincare products at all. But they are just the same.

In addition to looking for an effective face cream for rosacea, it might be necessary for you to take a look at the ones you are already using and read the label of ingredients. If they contain any of the ingredients listed below, then you might want to change brands; they could be a big part of your problem. The ingredients to avoid include:

· Petroleum-based alcohols-causes redness, dryness and irritation

· TEA-triethanolamine-causes excessive dryness, which contributes to inflammation

· Fragrances-common allergens; can cause redness, burning and inflammation

· Parabens-often cause rashes that may be confused with rosacea

An alternative practitioner will often recommend an exclusionary period. During that time, you might refrain from using any cosmetics to see if the condition improves.

Some of the ingredients that you want to look for in a face cream for rosacea are natural anti-inflammatories. One of the newest on the market is derived from sheep’s wool. Like lanolin, another sheep’s wool derivative, it is hypoallergenic and harmless.

The new compound is being called Functional Keratin by the company that discovered how to gently extract it from sheep’s wool. It is actually a protein that is very similar to the skin’s own. It has been used to treat dermatitis, a common inflammatory skin condition, reduce wrinkles and as a general moisturizer. The antioxidant coenzyme Q10 may help as well.

You probably won’t find coenzyme Q10 in a product described strictly as a face cream for rosacea. It is usually recommended for repairing sun damage, reversing wrinkles and “de-aging” the skin.

There is reason to believe that the sun contributes to the skin’s redness, even when you are not suffering from sunburn. It is known that the sun contributes to wrinkles, excessive dryness, age spots and similar problems.

Although the redness may appear when someone is young, the most common onset is between the ages of 30 and 60. At about that same time, other changes are going on that need to be addressed.

Basically, instead of looking for a face cream for rosacea, you should be looking for one designed to delay and reverse the signs of age. It’s simply the best choice.
