Rosacea – What Can You Do?
It is estimated that there are 14 million people in the United States that suffer from the effects of rosacea, which is a skin condition common in women or men with fair-skin usually between the ages of 25 and 65. A typical sign of rosacea is patchy areas of red, tiny red bumps or the visibility of small blood vessels on the face.
Chemical free options for Rosacea
This serum contains a high organic content of rosehip seed oil which, for rosacea suffers, is known for strengthening broken and damaged capillaries by acting like an astringent to clean up and reduce redness. It has a high absorbing quality which allows it to penetrate skin effectively. It is naturally high in vitamin C and it is a great way of calming your skin.
During the 2005 Academy of Dermatology in the annual meeting, a study was conducted to test the effects of Rooibos Tea and Green Tea on rosacea. It was proven that rooibos tea in skincare products was able to help those with rosacea. The study included 188 women, aged 20 to 55 years old, who all has symptoms of rosacea such as red bumps and visible blood vessels. A sample set of women used the a chemical free rooibos tea face cleanser twice daily, which other set of women used generic face cleansers. After 6 weeks of the trial, the women who washed with the chemical free rooibos tea face cleanser had experienced an 87% reduction in red bumps when compared to those using the store brand cleansers which contained chemicals. This is was the inspiration behind the Rooibos Tea Face Scrub. It is a great scrub, for those people with dry skin who are looking to cleanse their face without drying it out.
We at Made from Earth have realized, however, that if your skin is ulta-sensitive and easily irritated, using any type of cleanser/scrub may not be a good solution. Furthermore, if your skin is excessively oily, a moisturizing scrub may not be the solution. This is where the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser can add alot of value. This is the most gentle cleanser on the market today. It is perfect for people with rosacea who do not want to further inflame their face since it is so sensitive, while at the same time detoxifying it of harmful oils. It can be used as a makeup remover or face wash, and is non-irritating, even when used around the eyes. It is soft and can be used daily.
