Living And Treating Rosacea Skin With Mineral Makeup

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea, a common and incurable skin condition, affects approximately 415 million people worldwide. Characterized by visible blood vessels, redness, flushing, and acne-like bumps, it is most commonly found on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Despite its prevalence, rosacea is often not discussed openly. 


What triggers Rosacea?

As rosacea is a chronic condition, individuals often experience periods of flares and periods of remission. Whether you currently have it or not, at some point in your life, it may manifest. Rosacea can be triggered by various factors including consuming inflammatory foods like alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods, as well as environmental factors such as sunlight, wind, pollution, and even man-made products like technology. The use of technology can expose the skin to free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to skin issues. Just like how leaving an apple out leads to oxidation, the same principle applies to the detrimental effects of free radicals on the skin. 


Treating Rosacea

While makeup can effectively conceal most symptoms, it's ideal to have fewer symptoms to cover in the first place. Anti-inflammatory ingredients like niacinamide and ceramides can be especially useful for reducing redness. If you have stubborn red spots that need extra attention, a green corrector is your best bet. Our mineral green corrector is highly pigmented and expertly masks any red blemishes on your skin. The key ingredient in our colour correction powder is kaolin, a natural clay known for its medicinal properties. Kaolin is commonly used to treat inflammation and can help to heal and soothe the skin. Mineral foundations are a gentle and natural option for treating rosacea compared to traditional foundations. A mineral formula with SPF not only provides coverage but also offers additional protection from the sun's harmful rays.
