Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

The Best Moisturisers for Mild Rosacea

If you struggle with redness-prone skin, then stress no more as we’ve got the perfect moisturiser guide for you. 

But firstly, what is rosacea? 

Rosacea is a common skin condition, that is prominent across the skin on your face including, redness and dilated blood-vessels on the cheeks and around the nose, forehead and chin. It affects fair-skinned skin types more than others and is more prominent in women rather than men. Rosacea is sun-sensitive and therefore, we recommend using creams with an SPF and even using a separate SPF for more protection. 

Nobody knows why rosacea occurs and it is incurable. Therefore, long-term treatments can be beneficial if your redness continues to get worse. We would suggest getting prescribed an anti-inflammatory cream if your symptoms persist. 

As someone who has rosacea, I have tried and tested many moisturisers to reduce the redness on my face. What I’ve realised is that it’s essential to not use any perfumed cleansers, toners or creams, as they can make your skin more sensitive, irritated and itchy, potentially resulting in worsening your rosacea.  

Below is our guide for the best creams to use with minimal ingredients, to help you with your redness.

Clinique iD

The Clinique iD collection is a customisable moisturiser that strengthens the skins moisture barrier. We recommend the Irritation Cartridge with Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion as a base, which provides skin with 8-hour moisture-protection. The cream is lightweight and does not leave skin feeling heavy or greasy. While, the irritation cartridge, soothes redness and blotchiness. It even protects against skin-damaging pollution!

Cetaphil

Don’t be put off at how much of a bargain this cream is! Cetaphil products are great if you have dry, sensitive and even oily skin, as they protect and strengthen the natural skin barrier. If you like a slightly thicker consistency within a cream, then the Cetaphil Daily Defence Moisturiser would be perfect for you. The cream hydrates the skin and provides UVA protection with the cream having a high SPF of 50, defending the skin against exposure to sunlight. It’s also dermatologist tested and fragrance-free, so you don’t have to worry about perfumes igniting your redness.

Anne Semonin

This brand develops luxurious, highly effective skincare, visibly enhancing your skin’s radiance. Anne Semonin tailor collections with a simple insight in mind, that everyone’s skin is unique and changes daily. This is the same with redness prone skin as one day your skin can go from having a red hue, to looking like a tomato in an instant. The Oligo Protect Cream is a “guardian angel” for vulnerable skin; it’s rich in marine minerals and is ultra-lightweight, leaving skin texture supple and luminous. It even has SPF 30, a great way to protect rosacea from harsh weather conditions.

Avene

Avene uses Thermal Spring Water in all their products, which is naturally soothing, anti-irritating and rich in natural ingredients, often recommended for extremely sensitive skin. Therefore, their Skin Recovery Cream that is preservative-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and alcohol-free is great for when your skin needs extra protection from sensitivity. Avene do have a range specifically targeted at redness, however, I find that the recovery cream is enough. The minimal ingredients help to calm and soothe very sensitive skin; perfect for when your skin feels irritated!

Ren Clean Skincare

Clean beauty is at the heart of Ren, giving concise and visible results, without using harmful ingredients. All products are cruelty-free, and they are expanding their vegan portfolio too! The Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream is a redness-calming and hydrating moisturiser, designed to protect sensitive skin. The cream also reduces dehydration and oxidation with calming ingredients such as blackcurrant seed oil, seabuckthorn oil and camellia oil, three fab ingredients to sooth sensitive skin while softening the skin. It also replenishes and hydrates skin, visibly improving the tone and reducing redness overall. Ren even use sustainable sources and packaging, using post-consumer-recycled plastic to become zero waste by 2021 – being clean to skin and to the planet! 

We hope that these moisturisers designed to combat rosacea can help you tackle your redness-prone skin. By using products that have minimal ingredients, your skin should look more refreshed, less blotchy and feel a lot smoother. So, let’s help to reduce our rosacea for good!
