No matter who you are, chances are you’ve struggled with your skin before. Whether it’s wrinkles, acne, psoriasis, or any other skin condition, it affects us all. However, one of the more complex skincare conditions to treat is rosacea. Seoul Mamas understands this, which is why in today’s blog, we’ll be discussing rosacea and the best ways to handle it.

Rosacea Explained

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. 
While there isn’t a specific demographic more prone to this condition, there are several identified triggers. From hairspray to stress to alcohol and more, rosacea can be temperamental and difficult to prevent. However, with a consistent and carefully curated skincare routine, it is manageable.

Know Your Triggers

The first step to handling your rosacea takes place long before your skincare routine even begins. Start to be watchful and pay attention to anything that causes a flare-up. Consider keeping a journal of what you’ve eaten, drank, or been exposed to around the time an episode occurs. 
When you’ve kept it for a decent amount of time, there should be certain common factors that continually pop up. Consider these factors and if they are removable from your life. If they aren’t, find a way to manage your exposure to them and limit it if at all possible. 

Have a Skin Care Routine

If minimizing triggers to your skin is not entirely possible, there are ways to treat it with an effective skincare routine. Companies like Seoul Mamas produce custom and luxurious beauty products based on natural Korean ingredients and K-beauty trends. 
Their products are ideal for treating conditions like rosacea because of their pure ingredients, unique high-standard formulations, and world-class research and development teams. However, it’s crucial to have a skincare routine that won’t further irritate you when it comes to a condition like rosacea, which coincides with extremely sensitive skin. 

How to Clean Your Face With Rosacea

To start, you’ll need a gentle foaming cleanser that will remove all makeup and dirt without over-drying or stripping the skin of its natural oils. 
Avoid anything that claims to exfoliate or scrub, as this could cause micro-tears or damage to the skin. Instead, dermatologists recommend following the cleanser with a pure hyaluronic acid serum, praised for its firming and plumping properties.
Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture and lift, which is the opposite of the inflammatory dryness that comes with rosacea. Finish off with a lightweight moisturizer to replenish the skin’s moisture barrier without adding grease or pore-clogging product. 
Finally, seek out products that are non-comedogenic, which means they won’t irritate or get caught in your pores.
