Rosacea Skin Care Tips from Dermatologists

By Terry Carrico

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that compels affected people to avoid social gatherings in embarrassment. Appearances of visible blood vessels, pimples and bumps, swelling, redness, eye irritation, etc, are few of the common symptoms of this skin disease. Below are several tips that dermatologists give their patients regarding Rosacea skin care. Have a look and try to follow the ones that fit your convenience.

  • Stay away from sun rays and pollutants

In general, exposure to sun rays and pollutants—even if only for a few minutes—can lead to tanning, dry skin, dead cells, itching, pimples, etc. The situation might become worse if Rosacea-affected skin is exposed to pollutants and harmful ultraviolet rays. Hence, dermatologists advise their patients to use sunscreen, wear sunglasses, and carry an umbrella while going out. It is even better if the face can be covered using a scarf.

  • Keep your skin clean

On a day-to-day basis, our faces come in contact with dust and pollutants. Patients who have Rosacea often don’t wash Rosacea-prone skin enough. That’s understandable if your skin already feels irritated. To cleanse without further irritating your skin, choose a mild, Rosacea friendly cleanser (not soap). It is really important to keep your skin clean so that the symptoms of Rosacea do not pop out. Clean your face at least twice daily or according to your needs.

  • Moisturize every day

Whether Rosacea makes your skin dry or oily, it’s important to moisturize. Moisturizing helps hydrate your skin by trapping water in your skin. This can reduce irritation and make your skin feel more comfortable. Applying a Rosacea-friendly moisturizer like Lifecell skin cream or a barrier repair cream can also improve the results you see from treatment.

  • Rely on a rosacea cream

Dermatologists recommend that their patients use Rosacea cream for better and quick action. Revitol is a reliable product that has own the confidence of a lot of dermatologists and Rosacea patients. Revitol Rosacea cream is suitable for the skin of both men and women. Revitol has earned a goodwill for their products that are gentle to the skin, works faster, and comes with ingredients that are clinically tested.

  • Protect your skin from the sun

The sun can worsen Rosacea. This is so common that it’s actually one of the most frequent causes of Rosacea. Even people with dark skin can have a Rosacea flare-up after being outdoors in the sun.To reduce Rosacea flare-ups caused by the sun, dermatologists recommend wearing sunscreen. In order to protect your skin, apply a sunscreen to your face every day before going outdoors. Even on cloudy days, it really helps.

  • Be cautious while buying skin care products

Skin care products do play a major part in minimizing or maximizing skin issues. When you have Rosacea, many skin care products and cosmetics can irritate your skin. While gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection can help reduce this sensitivity, you also want to choose your skin care products and makeup carefully. Buy products that do not contain alcohol, fragrance, lactic, Glycolic acid, menthol etc. Test the skin care products before use to be sure they do not irritate your skin.

  • Test skin care products and makeup

You should test skin care products and makeup before applying it on your face. If you’ve never tried a product or it seems that everything you apply to your face stings, testing can help. To test a product, dab a small amount near your Rosacea-prone skin. If it irritates your skin within 72 hours, don’t use it.

  • Be gentle with your skin

Don’t let anything irritate your skin as it can worsen Rosacea. To prevent this, you should try to avoid rubbing or scrubbing your face. That means no washcloths, facial sponges, or exfoliating. Making these tips a part of your skin care routine can help you take better care of your Rosacea-prone skin. If you have trouble finding skin care products or makeup that doesn’t irritate your skin, a dermatologist can assist you. A dermatologist can examine your skin and recommend products for your skin’s specific needs.

  • Never compromise on taking care of your eyes

Apart from the face, Rosacea can affect your eyes as well. The common symptoms are red and swollen eyelids. In extreme cases, if medical help is not sought, Rosacea can even lead to corneal damage and vision loss. Use professional help while choosing eye pencils, mascaras, and eye shadows to ensure they are fragrance-free and allergy-tested.

The symptoms of Rosacea are a big concern for anyone suffering from this problem. However, it only takes a little time to be dedicated to skin care. The signs of Rosacea are often confused to be blushing, acne, or pimples. If you are also in doubt, never delay in visiting a dermatologist for early detection and treatment. Do not worry even if your skin problems are detected to be Rosacea. Revitol Rosacea cream may be able to help. Be alert and take care of your skin. Stay healthy and live well.

The American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Reports That Modern Cosmetic Surgical Procedures Are On The Rise

New data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) shows that many modern cosmetic surgical procedures are on the rise, and that surgical procedures account for 77% of all surveyed physicians’ business.

The latest annual survey (Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics) from the organization now reflects input exclusively from ABPS board-certified plastic surgeons, which previously encompassed data from physicians in a wider range of specialties.

“We opted to change the format of our survey to better represent the specialty of plastic surgery,” explains Clyde H. Ishii, MD, President of ASAPS. “After more than two decades of collecting data from various specialties it made sense for us to fine tune our survey and take a closer look at what board-certified plastic surgeons are seeing in their practices,” he explains.

How Karaoke and Korea’s Love of Plastic Surgery Became Front Lines in America’s War on Sex Slavery

Karaoke bars like this have opened up a new front in America’s war on human trafficking and the illegal sex market. Massage parlors in the US – where prostitution is illegal everywhere except Nevada – have long been notorious as fronts for the sex trade and for exploiting women mostly from China and Korea. But as culture changes and new government policies are introduced, the enslavement strategies used by traffickers and the sex market itself are getting more sophisticated. Women are falling into bondage through debts for plastic surgery and technology has been used to lure victims.

Under-the-counter sexual services and human trafficking are now just as likely to be linked to karaoke bars, clubs and residential brothels. According to anti-slavery group Polaris, which runs a National Trafficking Hotline, of the 8,759 labour and sex trafficking cases reported last year, 1,572 involved escort services.
