April: Rosacea Awareness Month - Experience Redness Relief!

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Do you experience facial redness or


Rosacea affects over 16 million people.

That number is actually low because

it is only associated with people who

have been officially diagnosed by a

physician. There are many more people

experiencing some level of facial

redness without a diagnosis. Redness

and flushing are challenging to control

and emotions associated with these

symptoms can impact confidence and

quality of life.

Did you know?

The typical onset of rosacea is between

age 30 to 50 and most readily affects

fair skin individuals. Rosacea is a chronic

inflammatory disorder of vasomotor

instability often appearing as flushing

and blushing. This can be transient in the

beginning where skin suddenly appears

red and then clears again later.

As Rosacea progresses the redness

becomes more persistent. Dilated

capillaries, also known as telangiectasia,

often also become visible on the skin.

One of the underlying causative factors

associated with Rosacea is the

cathelicidin inflammatory protein.

This protein is found in everyone and

is important for wound healing in the skin,

but in people with Rosacea, it is far more

reactive to a range of triggers causing

inflammation and redness in the skin.

As with all skin concerns, cumulative

sun damage also plays a significant

role in the redness associated with

Rosacea. You may have also found that

certain foods, alcohol, caffeine, sugar, or

exercise and heat can cause your redness

to flare. Because the redness can be so

transient in the beginning, you may find

avoiding those triggers to be helpful.

The Key to Addressing Redness

As a chronic inflammatory disease, there

is no cure, but there are ingredients that

can play a significant role in helping

reduce inflammation and reduce the

appearance of facial redness and

flushing. As an added benefit, these

ingredients also help promote

overall skin rejuvenation.

Key Ingredients to Address Redness

Azelaic Acid

Commonly prescribed for Rosacea.

In addition to anti-inflammatory

benefits, Azelaic acid is also

excellent for resurfacing and

brightening the skin.


Certain peptides, including

tetrapeptide-14, have also been

shown to down regulate the

inflammatory process to prevent

and reduce redness.


Antioxidants have been shown to

counter the impact of free radicals

and reduce inflammation. There

are a wide range of antioxidants

with clinical supper including

Vitamin C, green tea, white tea,

and red tea extracts.

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid is one of the most

studied ingredients in the cosmetic

industry, showing a broad range of

benefits across multiple concerns

including redness reduction.

Glycolic acid also has anti-

inflammatory andmoisturizing

properties that are highly

beneficial in addressing the

redness associated with


Salicyclic Acid

Salicylic acid is another powerful

acid shown to reduce inflammation.

Salicyclic acid is in the same family

as aspirin - they are both salicylates

shown to have potent anti-

inflammatory properties.

ingredients found in sunscreens

are also one of the most

important you can use to help
