One condition that affects many people all over the world is Rosacea, a chronic condition characterized by red and pink patches all over the face and sometimes the neck area. It is a benign but hard to cure condition which usually affects Caucasian and pale skinned women.
In the beginning, this “blushing” can be intermittent, but eventually, it almost always increases in severity, sensitivity, and can be accompanied by rashes, enlarged pores, blemishes, and noticeable surfaced capillaries. Having to face the blemishes and redness of rosacea can be difficult, but help is on the way! Multiple products are now available to relieve the unsightly symptoms.
Green makeup and green tinted moisturizer can be used to counteract your facial redness. Then, follow up with a skin tone foundation. Be careful to only choose foundations with natural yellow tones. A mineral based makeup is generally best and has less chance of irritating your sensitive skin.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that make-up equals medicine for a large majority of Rosacea cases, as most cases are mild to moderate in severity, but many cosmetic products contain ingredients that tend to aggravate the problem instead of solving it.
Clinical research and consumer feedback indicate that cosmetics containing comedogenic (pore-blocking) ingredients in general and alcohol, fragrances, menthol, peppermint oil in particular tend to cause flare-ups and allergic reactions in Rosacea patients. Therefore, a person suffering from this condition should ideally use fully organic, chemical-free cosmetics that cover the facial symptoms easily without causing any serious side-effects. Green tinted pre-foundations and moisturizers are extremely popular in this regard as they successfully conceal facial redness and pimples which are caused by this condition.
These are just some products that are recommended for people affected with the condition. Remember that before buying any product read the ingredients used to make the item. Take note that there are components that can worsen the redness and swelling of extremely sensitive skin. You probably are already consulting a doctor or dermatologist so feel free to give visit or give him a phone call to make sure the product your ordering seems like a good idea.
It is definitely hard at times to find a cosmetic that will work well with your skin while not conflicting with rosacea. It might take time since one cosmetic might not work properly for you but keep looking. Your doctor should be of great help in this endeavour as well.
