Certain foods and environments can cause Rosacea to flare up. These include:
• Hot drinks
• Spicy food
• Extreme temperatures
• Sun exposure
• Medical conditions such as high blood pressure
• Harsh skincare products.
It is important for those with Rosacea to avoid these triggers where possible and to have a skin care routine that matches the needs of their sensitive skin.
Willow herb is a particularly important ingredient to look for when considering a skin care anti reddening product. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to calm angry red skin and it also helps to breakdown hard tissues in the skin.
A treatment such as Shanga’s Calming Mask is a gel, based on sea kelp and natural plant extracts, including Willow Herb. When used as a mask, it calms and soothes the skin to promote a youthful, radiant complexion.
