If you want to reduce Rosacea, or facial redness, you first need to know that causes it. Once you understand the underlying cause, the treatment for facial redness is easy.
What Causes Facial Redness
Any reddening of the skin can be caused by capillary congestion which is triggered by inflammation. There may be a number of underlying causes of this, including heredity, exposure to extreme temperatures, sunburn, stress and anxiety. But ultimately the root cause which is the easiest to treat is inflammation.
Facial redness is typical in fair-skinned people who are especially sensitive to sunlight and are more easily sunburned. In elderly people, facial redness may be the result of free radical damage that has accumulated throughout the years. Free radical damage is instrumental in causing wrinkles, skin sagging, age spots, and other similar skin problems. Fortunately, that type of damage can be repaired with creams applied directly to the skin.
These creams can aid in reducing facial redness, too. With the right product, you will eventually see a youthful-looking complexion with even pigmentation. Here are some of the ingredients that can cause your complexion to change for the better.
Cyperus Rotundus, commonly known as nut-grass root, is regarded by many people to be a medicinal plant. To others, it’s just a weed. It was a German company that took advantage of the plant’s medicinal properties as they benefit the skin, by soothing irritation and reducing inflammation.
During clinical trials it was noted that the extract reduced pigmentation, eliminated age spots, and lightened tanned skin – without causing any irritation. The scientists carefully studied the extract and soon determined that something in the root inhibited the production of melanin in the skin. By slowing melanin production, the unidentified ingredient was able to reduce facial redness and even out pigmentation on the face.
This natural protein is extracted from sheep’s wool. It is able to reduce facial redness caused by inflammation or other skin sensitivities. Functional Keratin slows the production of an inflammatory compound called prostaglandin E2 or PGE2. Studies have shown there is nearly a 70 percent reduction in PGE2 after initial use of keratin.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that can repair damage caused by free radicals. And since it has been determined that free radical damage probably contributes to the broken capillaries that sometimes are seen in people with rosacea, it makes sense to repair the initial damage.
Many excellent creams are available that contain many helpful antioxidants, as well as essential fatty acids and other ingredients that keep skin looking healthy. Anyone can use these creams, no matter what type of complexion they have.
Women who want to reduce rosacea may consider trying a Natural Whitening Day Cream or an Active Age Defense Cream.
Men should try the Age-Defense Active Facial Fluid, which contains a number of natural anti-inflammatory ingredients, including Functional Keratin.
