Managing Rosacea: with skin expert, Jodie King

Rosacea is a skin reddening condition that occurs mainly on the face.  It can be very embarrassing and make the sufferer feel extremely self-conscious and anxious, which in turn can often make the condition worse.

Symptoms are redness, visible blood vessels, bumps and pimples and sometimes in more extreme and rarer cases, swelling of the nose from excess tissue.

Jodie King, skin expert and founder of Blyss Skin Clinic, explains:

If you suffer from rosacea you are definitely not alone! It’s thought to affect one in 10 people, usually fair-skinned and is four times more likely to affect women, most often occurring between 30 and 50 years of age.

While the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, a number of factors are thought to contribute. These include blood vessel abnormalities and even a reaction to microscopic Demodex mites that are commonly found on the face (yes really! Gross right? But they’re there on everyone).

Several triggers have also been identified that may make rosacea worse:

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Stress
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Hot or cold weather
  • Hot drinks
  • Alcohol and caffeine and even spicy foods

Sadly, there is no known cure for rosacea and all treatment is management only. While we are able to improve the appearance of rosacea, the condition will relapse at times, but there are treatments that can really help to manage the condition.

Clinic-based/professional treatments include:

  1. Peels – not lactic, such as our Cosmedix Timeless peel
  2. IPL is great for treating and managing redness. IPL works by a broad spectrum light that penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either blood (vascular lesions/broken capillaries) or melanin (freckles) and damages it. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue, leaving the skin with a more even tone.
  3. Vitamin Infusion Treatments for maintenance, to improve the cell function and reduce environmental damage. This is a deeply relaxing skin treatment with no discomfort.
  4. LED treatments that alternate blue and red light are good for managing inflammation. This non-invasive treatment delivers light via thousands of tiny light-emitting diodes. The infrared wavelengths increase cellular activity, helping to bring nutrients to the treated area. This leads to an increase in blood flow, promoting the production of collagen and elastin fibres.

With Rosacea it’s also really important to manage the condition at home.

Here are a few key tips:

  1. Use only milk cleansers, such as Skin Medica cream cleanser
  2. Use products containing niacinamide (vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid), vitamin C and eventually vitamin A. We love the Dr Aspect Multi B, Active C and Cosmedix Serum 16
  3. Always use a good quality sunscreen – preferably a physical sunblock that contains zinc and titanium dioxide
  4. To prevent trans-epidermal water loss (aka TWL – loss of water from your skin through diffusion and evaporation), use products that prevent moisture loss (known as occlusion), such as Cosmedix Rescue+
