There are plenty of ways to treat rosacea. One of the more famous ways to go about it would be using rosacea cream. These creams are a more practical alternative to treating the condition and it can save you a lot of money as well.
A cream for rosacea or a rosacea lotion can be a big help in treating the condition…But only if it contains all the necessary nutrients and anti-inflammatory ingredients, which you truly need. The problem with some rosacea creams is that they contain several different ingredients that can cause additional redness and skin irritation.
People who suffer from chronic rosacea usually have two things in common.
One – their skin is more sensitive to changes in temperatures and other sorts of irritants.
Two – it is difficult to avoid the changes in temperature (but avoiding irritants is not that difficult).
So what does rosacea cream have to do with avoiding certain irritants?
Well, a good number of creams for rosacea come with many kinds of skin irritants packed within them. Often when shopping for a proper cream to treat rosacea, we look for out for the good ingredients without even checking if these creams contain any irritants.
If you find any of the following ingredients within your current rosacea cream, then it is highly encouraged that you consider switching to a different cream.
- TEA or triethanolamine
This can cause dryness and actually contributes to inflammation.
- Petroleum based alcohol
This also causes redness as well as irritation to your skin.
These are very common allergens which can cause redness as well as burning and inflammation.
These can lead to rashes that are very similar to rosacea.
Some doctors may recommend that you cease all usage of any kind of rosacea lotion just to see what happens to your condition. The ingredients in a good rosacea moisturizer would be natural herbs with anti-inflammatory properties.
An ingredient which has been used lately in a cream for rosacea is functional Keratin. It’s a compound derived from sheep’s wool and is known to be hypoallergenic and harmless. It has already been used to treat dermatitis and can be found in several other skin care products, like anti-wrinkle creams and moisturizers. Speaking of new ingredients and creams…
A New Rosacea Cream
A new rosacea cream which many of my readers recommended I mention is Revitol’s Rosacea Cream. Apparently it’s an all-natural product containing:
- Anti-inflammatories – to reduce the swelling and redness;
- Bacteria-Fighting Agents – to kill bacteria and prevent breakouts; and
- Collagen-booster – to heal your skin faster and keep it supple and soft;
So far I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, and many people seem to be getting lasting relief. Best of all, it doesn’t contain any of the the irritants mentioned above. Anyway, you can find out more about it at this Revitol Rosacea review.
