Ask a Dermatologist – What is Rosacea?

rosacea

Red in the face lately? If it’s more than just a rosy complexion or a slight flush, you might have rosacea, a chronic skin disorder resulting in distinct and constant redness. Since rosacea has no known cure, we wanted to find the best way to prevent flare-ups and treat the symptoms.

Dr. Christian Jurist, a certified dermatologist and medical director of global education for Pevonia, recently took time to answer all of our most pressing rosacea questions so you can calm to redness.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic and progressive, micro-circulation disorder visibly resulting in persistent redness, dilated capillaries, congestion, and last but not least, papules and pustules (breakouts!).

How do I know if I have rosacea?

Affected individuals will usually suffer from spells of flushing and blushing presenting skin redness and sometimes a burning sensation. Dilated capillaries under the skin are common as well.

What triggers rosacea?

Usually rosacea is triggered by extreme temperature changes, sun exposure, emotions and stress, hormonal changes, certain cosmetic products, spicy foods, ingestion of alcoholic beverages like wine, and also hot beverages such as coffee.

What should I avoid if you have rosacea?

Primarily, the triggers mentioned above should be avoided. Then, a proper, gentle and dedicated skin care regimen to control and treat the sensitivity of rosacea skin should be followed. It is recommended to visit a dermatologist as well for a professional point of view.

What treatments can be used for rosacea?

Gentle products intended to soothe, cool and calm sensitized skin are the main focus. Doctors mostly rely on antibiotics to control a certain population of micro-organisms that can worsen the condition. In addition, doctors will recommend sunscreen to reduce skin damage. Last but not least, concealing mineral makeup is recommended to cover and/or cancel out redness. Pevonia® offers the RS2 Rosacea range for home use and a Professional Treatment Mask administered at a qualified salon or spa.

Do treatments differ between mild and severe rosacea?

As Rosacea advances, the treatment must be adapted to address the current condition of the skin and affected areas. If Rosacea is not managed properly and is not under control or worsens, targeted medical treatment is required to control further damage beyond the skin. Rosacea products for home use can be used at any stages, but it is recommended to have periodic examination by a skin professional to learn if a modification of the recommended routine is necessary.

What ingredients should I look for in products to help remedy rosacea?

Green tea, licorice extract, chamomile extract, and French rose extract are very effective ingredients to control rosacea symptoms when used on a regular basis. In general, any ingredients that can reduce skin irritation and calm the skin are ideal.

OUR FAVOURITE BRIGHTENING DUO

Brightening musts from Pevonia

Brightening musts from Pevonia

Sometimes your skin just needs a little “pick me up” to get back into balance.  Seasonal temperature shifts, lack of sleep or just when hormones aren’t behaving are just some of the reasons why our skin can become tired and lack-lustre.

Which is why we need to add a few more items in our skin care wardrobe that do more than the old “cleanse, tone, moisturise”.

Two of our favourites (and apparently yours too as these are two of our best-sellers) sure to get you out of the skin care blaaaaaaahhhs and into the skin care aaaaahhhhhhh’s!

ENZYMO-SPHERIDES PEELING CREAM

pevonia enzymo-spherides peeling cream

There’s something so wholesome about this peeling cream that smells so delicious you could eat it!  Papaya and Pineapple have been selected for their enzyme peeling action, in other words, an action that gently digests away the dead skin cells instead of abrading or burning them off.  So it’s gentle, really gentle, and it’s effective too!  Nothing makes skin feel cleaner, lighter or more purified than this jar of goodness and it’s easy to use; simply apply a thin layer on cleansed skin, wet the fingertips with warm water, this will help to “wake up” the enzymes, then leave them to do their thing for 5-10 minutes, then rinse away.  What you are left with is skin that looks reborn and with a lustrous sheen that says “I am fresh and I am rejuvenated!”.

“C” COMPLEXE WITH OXYZOMES

pevonia c complexe with oxyzomes

How can we describe a serum that smells like a fresh orange, is silkier than silk and once applied leaves your skin looking as though you’ve just returned from a tropical island holiday?  A bit over the top? Ok, maybe… but seriously, this is an addictive product and when applied beneath your regular moisturiser offers a vibrancy and luminosity rarely seen without a pound of makeup.  Many clients comment that it has in fact helped eliminate the need for foundation! Pretty serious claim but true nonetheless.  What’s more is every time you apply this product full of anti-oxidants, you know you are defending yourself from the most harmful free-radical of the them all; the hydroxyl-radical which results from solar exposure.

So if dullness and tiredness and generally sadness are your skin woes, try these two miracle workers for the most “alive and happy” skin you ever experienced.

In a spot of bother? Learn to read your skin and fight blemishes and pigmentation…effectively

Problems with pigmentation? Worried about blemishes? Prone to facial redness? You are not alone. Hormones, stress, diet, dehydration, the environment, the wrong skincare and of course a change in the season can all cause havoc with our skin. Many alternative practitioners even believe that blemishes in particular areas of the skin can actually reflect different problems in your internal health!

But before you panic, potentially buy the wrong products or even get your dirty paws all over said problem, check out our easy-to-understand face map, read our tips, and treat your skin to cooling, calming, results-driven skincare the kind way!

Understanding your skin - FACE MAPPING

1. Breakouts on your forehead – DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Blemishes in this area can be a sign of improper diet, food intolerances and a lack of water so make sure you think about what you are consuming, try to avoid processed foods and drink plenty of water.

2. Breakouts around your brow line – ADRENAL STRESS/CLEANLINESS

If you are prone to spots in and around your eyebrows it can be a sign of improper or lack of removal of makeup which leads to a build-up of dead skin cells which equals blemishes.

Exfoliation is in order! While regular skin cleansing is clearly beneficial, gentle exfoliating will help rejuvenate your skin and fight blemishes and pigmentation bringing new life to your complexion!

Remember if your skin is too dry, it will actually produce more oil which in turn can lead to more pesky pimples. Using a gentle cleanser will remove surface oils and makeup without stripping and disrupting your natural pH. Try: Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

However if skin is super sensitive you are best to opt for an enzyme exfoliant which does not contain beads.

Try: Enzymo Spherides Peeling Cream

3. Breakouts between your brows – LIVER

If you have spots in between your eyebrows it can be linked to issues with your liver. Try to cut down on your dairy intake, reduce alcohol if you’ve been drinking more than usual and try not to eat rich or greasy foods. As before make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Very important!

4. Breakouts around your eye area – KIDNEYS

Blemishes, pigmentation, dark circles all point to dehydration! Increase fluids (not soft drinks, coffee and alcohol!) and treat your delicate eye area to skin nurturing ingredients and a moisture burst. Try “C” Evolutive Eye Gel, it will reduce dark circles and puffiness, revealing alluring eyes with a visibly refreshed and rejuvenated eye contour.

5. Breakouts on your cheeks – LUNGS

This can be linked to the respiratory system. Think pollution. Or do you smoke? Have you been suffering from a bad cold? Get some fresh air, up your intake of vitamin C, eat more fresh veggies and fruit and cut down on alchohol, caffeine, sugar and dairy.

Skin can also appear lack-luster so treat it to a surge of vitamin c too! Try “C” Complexe, it will boost your skin’s radiance, drench it with repairing antioxidants and render it brighter and smoother.

6. Breakouts on your nose – HEART

Any blemishes on your nose can indicate high blood pressure and Vitamin B deficiency.

Replace bad fats with good fats such as nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Make sure you are taking multi-vitamin supplements and try to avoid rich and spicy foods!

7/8. Breakouts in and around your chin – HORMONES/STOMACH

Getting pimples in this area can be linked to your stomach (spots on the central part of your chin) as well as the more obvious hormonal changes (outer area of the chin) which can be more apparent during certain stages of a woman’s cycle. Focus on your diet, eat well upping your intake of leafy veggies and fibre. Try to get plenty of rest (not always easy!) and as before drink plenty of water. Also ensure you keep skin clean, clean, clean! Try one of our Organic Essential Line Cleansers (for dry, sensitive, combination or oily skin.)

Dry Skin Cleanser

Sensitive Skin Cleanser

9. Breakouts on your neck – ILLNESS

Breakouts in this area can be linked to your body fighting bacteria to avoid illness. What you need now is rest and recuperation!

It’s important to look after yourself and your skin. What you consume is just as important as what you put on your skin! And remember to always use a moisturiser! First sight of a pesky pimple and so many of us will hold off on applying a moisturiser thinking it’s feeding the area with too much moisture resulting in pimples! Yet the more you deprive your skin of moisture the more it will produce, making breakouts become all the more common. We have a huge range of moisturisers to suit every skin type, so work out what’s best for your skin and treat it with some Pevonia loving! Try http://www.pevonia.com.au/Creams-and-Moisturizers.html
