Your skin care products act as a food for your skin, hence people who suffer with rosacea and extra sensitive skin need to be cautious with their choice of products. If you suffer from rosacea it is important you steer clear from products that use acids or are designed to exfoliate, these will strip and irritate the skin rather than protect and soothe the skin with these conditions, leading to further inflammation and irritation. We need to be reminded that our immune system functions on a cellular level and our largest organ – the skin absorbs so much from the outside so give your skin the clean, nourishing products that can help to calm Rosacea.
So to help you get started down the path to finding skincare that is the best solution for both sensitive and irritated skin conditions, I have researched the best products that are packed with natural calming ingredients.
