The National Rosacea Society (NRS) designates April as Rosacea Awareness Month. This designation is used to educate the public on this chronic and widespread facial disorder. In total, Rosacea affects more than 16 million Americans.

Here are our recommendations to help calm and soothe the skin affected by Rosacea:

1) Skin resurfacing for lasting reduction of redness and flushing: ⠀

2) Skin Hydration to help plump and replenish the moisture in the skin:

3) Ingredients to look out for in your skincare:

  • Vitamin C helps strengthen capillaries (fewer broken capillaries = less noticeable redness)
  • Hyaluronic Acid forces hydration in the skin
  • Niacin helps reduce redness

4) Things to avoid:

  • Avoid physical exfoliators
  • Avoid products that contain alcohol, menthol, witch hazel, perfumes, and exfoliating agents
  • Use only very gentle cleansers.
  • Look for moisturizers for sensitive skin
  • Protect yourself from the sun by using mineral-based sunscreen

5) Product Recommendations which are available in our online store:

Please keep in mind, that Rosacea is best treated after having a professional consultation with an esthetician. If you’d like to schedule an appointment for our Medical Spa in Midtown Atlanta or Alpharetta, please call us at 678.566.7200.
