Rosacea Rescue: Embrace Calm with SAOR’s Ultimate Skincare Guide

For those battling rosacea, choosing the right products can often feel like walking through a minefield, where one wrong step can set off a flare-up. But fear not! We’re here to arm you with tips to keep your skin calm and comfortable. And, we’ll let you in on a little secret: SAOR’s postbiotic and pH-aligned skincare range might just be the hero you’ve been waiting for.

Gentle Cleansing Ritual

Twice-a-day cleansing can work wonders, but only if done with a featherlight touch. Here’s how to keep it gentle:

  • Use a mild, rosacea-friendly cleanser — no soap suds, please!
  • Apply with your fingertips in a soothing circular motion.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water, using just the tips of your fingers.
  • Pat dry with a soft towel — no rubbing!

Moisturise to Minimise Discomfort

Post-cleansing, while your skin is still singing the praises of that gentle wash, it’s time to moisturise. If you’re using treatment creams, they go on first. Follow up with a moisturiser that plays nice with rosacea. SAOR’s Everyday Moisturiser, for instance, skips the nasty ingredients and instead nurtures with soothing postbiotics and a pH that’s in harmony with your skin’s natural state. It’s hydration without the irritation.

Soothing Serum for Sensitive & Rosacea-Prone Skin

Adding a serum to your routine can dramatically boost your skin’s comfort and appearance. SAOR’s soothing serum, which features Aloe extract and Rosehip oil, is a balm for irritated skin. These ingredients are known for their calming and healing properties, making this serum a great ally in soothing flare-ups and reducing redness while adding brightening and skin clarity benefits. The serum’s gentle formula complements its moisturising companions, working together to fortify your skin’s barrier against irritants.

Sun Protection: Your Daily Armour

The sun doesn’t discriminate, and even on cloudy days, those UV rays can trigger a rosacea flare-up. Arm yourself daily with broad-spectrum, high SPF sunscreen. Look for products containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide — these mineral shields are kinder to troubled skin. And remember, a wide-brimmed hat isn’t just a fashion statement; it’s essential armour against the sun’s siege.

Ingredients to Avoid in Rosacea Skincare

When it comes to rosacea, not all skincare products are created equal. To avoid turning your face into a battleground, here are the infamous ingredients you might want to give a miss:

  • Alcohol and Camphor: These can be more irritating than a mosquito at a barbecue.
  • Fragrances: Often as subtle as a sledgehammer to your skin’s comfort.
  • Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid: Think of these as too enthusiastic for your delicate skin.
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: It’s like inviting sandpaper to your skincare party.
  • Menthol and Urea: Sometimes these can feel more like foes than friends.

Instead, opt for products labelled as made for sensitive skin and non-comedogenic. Products that naturally align with your skin’s pH and sit between a pH of 5 – 5.5 are strongly recommended, providing a comforting barrier without the heavy artillery.

A Touch of Colour: Makeup for Rosacea

Sometimes a little camouflage is needed. Green-tinted concealers can counteract redness, while a yellow-tinted one might better suit darker skin tones. Water-based or mineral powder makeups are your allies here, sticking to your battle plan of gentle skin care.
