Skin Care Problems: Rosacea


If you think you might be suffering from Rosacea the signs and symptoms you should look out for are:

  • redness on the cheeks, nose and forehead
  • red broken veins
  • red lumps and bumps
  • general sensitivity

If you are suffering with any of the above signs and symptoms and think it could be Rosacea you should get a proper diagnosis from your doctor. Medication can be prescribed to help the condition and to prevent it from becoming worse. Unfortunately there is no known cure for Rosacea nor is there any known cause, but we can certainly help treat and keep the problem to a minimum with medication and the right use of skin care products.

Rosacea is more common in women over the age of 30 who are fair skinned and tend to blush or flush easily. Men do suffer with Rosacea and tend to have more severe symptoms.

Dermalogica have some very effective products to help to generally sooth, calm, reduce redness, desensitise and strengthen the skin which will help with the symptoms. It is important to use products that do not contain any irritating, aggravating, or harsh ingredients. We can confidently tell you that every product in the Dermalogica range is free from alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil, artificial colours and fragrances. These are all ingredients that are commonly used in skin care and make-up products which, in many cases, cause sensitivity, reactions, breakouts and other skin conditions, and should be avoided wherever possible.

Skin Care Problems : Open or Enlarged Pores

Open or Enlarged Pores

The Pores in our skin are follicles which may or may not contain a hair, through which natural sebum (skins natural oil secretion) flows. The amount of sebum which flows out of the follicle will depend on its size. When there is excessive sebum within the Sebaceous gland (which produces the sebum) it may swell and the follicle will become enlarged. Some follicles are naturally larger but this is due to your genetic make up.

The follicle can become blocked due to a build up of sebum, dead skin cells and bacteria which over time will cause an impacted sticky plug which we call a comedone (blackhead). The comedone will also cause the follicle to become enlarged. Once a comedone has developed the only way to remove it from the follicle is to perform an extraction.

The best treatment for enlarged pores and comedones is prevention, by always thoroughly cleansing and regular exfoliation. By doing this you will be enabling the follicle to function normally by preventing a build up of dead skin cells, sebum and bacteria.
