Couperose Skin and Rosacea

Recently, I have noticed more and more questions from our customers about the care of vascular skin and skin with rosacea. According to the latest research, it is estimated that the latter problem affects up to 10% of the population. What's more interesting, it occurs three times more often in women than in men. Are you wondering whether you have vascular skin or maybe you have a condition called rosacea? Couperose Skin and Rosacea .

Couperose Skin and Rosacea

Couperose skin is characterized by redness and irritation resulting from shallow vascularization and thin and delicate skin. The face usually turns red in stressful situations, during physical excersises, changes in temperature or after eating something spicy such as chili. The redness is caused by dilated blood vessels and increased blood flow under the skin, and these symptoms calm down over time.

However, couperose skin sometimes becomes the basis for rosacea, which is a skin disease that in many cases requires treatment.

It usually begins around the age of 30 and is manifested by severe redness and inflammation in the central part of the face (mainly on the nose and cheeks), visible 'spider veins', and a feeling of heat. In a later phase, it may also take a more severe form, spreading to the entire face. There are also pimples, lumps, itching and a feeling of tightness. The erythema intensifies and remains permanently, in advanced cases even deformities appear, e.g. nose tuberosity.

Couperose Skin and Rosacea

If you have noticed yourself with symptoms of vascular skin, try to take care of it and choose the right cosmetics to prevent its condition from worsening, and as a result of rosacea, which requires treatment.

What to look for :

-limit factors that worsen symptoms (alcohol, temperature changes, stress)

protect your skin from UV rays

-avoid mechanical peelings, which may irritate the skin

-pay attention to the composition of the cosmetics used: avoid strong preservatives, ethanol and other 'bad' alcohols, menthol, strong detergents (SLS, SLES), synthetic fragrances

-use protective cosmetics based on natural butters and oils, look for ingredients containing hyaluronic acid, dpanthenol, allantoin, vitamins B5 (niacinamide), C and E, rosehip oil, sea buckthorn oil, pomegranate oil, carrot seed oil, raspberry oil

strengthen the hydrolipid barrier, i.e. maintain the right balance between moisturizing and greasing.

My reccomendations for couperose skin:

  • Niacinamide skin toner

  • Strawberry serum with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C

  • Vitamin C moisturiser

  • Q10 Boost face moisturiser

  • Natural Protection cream

  • Apple Rich cleansing oil
