8 beauty tips to banish rosacea

Pevonia Organic Skincare Australia - rosacea awareness monthRosacea. I’m sure you’ve heard the name but I bet you didn’t know that it’s so common (think 45 million people) that the month of April has been designated GLOBALLY as Rosacea Awareness Month!

What exactly is rosacea though I hear you asking…

In layman’s terms rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition which often presents with facial redness. However many tend to mistake the redness (or bumps that can come with it), for acne. Other tell-tale signs include; dilated capillaries, congestion and pustules.

Although there’s no cure for rosacea, the great news is by following these essential tips you could avoid flair ups have your skin red-free in next to no time!

  1. Try to avoid alcohol
    Think beauty products containing alcohol as well as alcoholic drinks we are all a little partial too from time to time! Sadly a glass of wine for instance can worsen the redness caused by rosacea. Noooo!
  2. Watch what you eat
    Certain foods can cause your skin to flush (or otherwise heat up!) try to avoid or at least reduce eating foods including; oranges, strawberries, peanuts, cashews and caffeine. Hot and spicy curries are also a no no!
  3. Eat a diet rich in multi vitamins and essential fatty Acids
    Vitamin A & C foods such as broccoli, sweet potato, carrots and leafy greens help strengthen the skin while foods such as salmon, almonds and eggs rich in fatty acids help produce the skin’s natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking while protecting it from environmental irritants.
  4. Avoid strenuous exercise.
    Oh ok then you’ve twisted by arm!
  5. Always use sun protection.
    The sun unfortunately is a trigger for rosacea.
  6. Avoid extreme temperatures.
    So no soaking in a HOT bath (ahhhh), relaxing in a sauna or slaving over a very hot stove!
  7. Do not slather on your makeup.
    Yes we all want to conceal our blemishes but layering makeup may only inflame your symptoms more! You want to select multi-tasking products, colour correctors and breathable foundations and powders so skin if covered but calm without being clogged! Give mineral makeup a go. You won’t regret it.
  8. The right skincare will be your best friend.
    With the constant use of effective skincare rosacea can be reduced and in some cases totally controlled! Pevonia’s RS2 range, created by world renowned dermatologist, biochemist and a pioneer in advanced organic skincare, Dr. Sylvie Hennessy, was designed to specifically treat rosacea. Formulated with the most purest, natural, nurturing ingredients including Green Tea, Chamomile, Liquorice, Allantoin, Vitamin E and Rose Essential Oil the range strengthens capillaries, desensitizes, decongests, soothes, and hydrates  while rendering skin evenly toned and visibly calmed.

“I can honestly say that the RS2 Care Cream is the only rosacea product I love and trust. It comforts and soothes my skin, reducing redness.” Michelle W

“After spending a lot of money on different products which didn’t work, I found the RS2 Care Cream to be the best that I have tried for my sensitive, rosacea skin. It’s gentle, and soothing while still moisturising my mature skin.” Johanna R

Cream vs Serum

Which skincare do you prefer to use, cream or serum, and why?

Some will be quick to say it’s CREAM because it’s what they’ve been using for the longest time and it works. They’re right.

Some will instantaneously say SERUM because it’s the trend these days and it’s really, really effective. They’re right too!

What’s the difference between a cream and a serum? Which one is more effective? Do you need both in your skincare regime?

  1. A serum is a high concentration of active ingredients. It contains the most potent dose of antioxidants and peptides. A serum is formulated liquid-like to be easily absorbed into the skin and because it’s lightweight, it suits all skin types.
  2. Cream is still the most popular skin care product. Because creams contain oil, it’s nourishing and moisturising. It may contain specific actives that that address specific skin concerns.
  3. Which is more effective? Cream and serum do different things. A cream is better at moisturising while a serum is better at immediately delivering specific treatment actives.
  4. Do you need both in your skincare regime? Definitely! Apply serum first to let the antioxidants and peptides work its way deep into your skin for immediate skin therapy. Apply cream after a few minutes to infuse your skin with more moisture.

Some use either of the two but we strongly suggest you use both for maximum results!
