Four Practical Steps You Can Take To Minimise Your Redness & Rosacea

Redness is a condition where your skin is sensitive and overly reactive to various environmental triggers. It’s incredibly important to keep your skin barrier strong to treat your redness concerns. Here are four practical steps you can take to minimise your redness & rosacea:

Don’t over-exfoliate:

We consider over-exfoliation a deadly sin for your skin. Particularly if you also suffer with dry and dehydrated skin, over-exfoliating can severely weaken your skin barrier which triggers inflammation as a result. Decrease your exfoliants and instead strengthen your skin barrier with lots of moisture and hydration.
DYNAMIC DUO ANTI REDNESS AND PIGMENTATION SERUM ($74.95)
This top selling serum truly is a dynamic duo. As reported by News.com.au, sales for this serum reached $50K in the first week of launch. Instantly absorbing into your skin, this serum provides a gentle exfoliation and deep hydration. Creating a skincare range specifically formulated for sensitive skin meant it was important for us to think carefully when it came to deciding on an approach for exfoliation.

Our solution? Incorporating Papaya into our serum which is commonly known as a 'fruit enzyme' - a form of exfoliation which is completely changing up the skincare game, particularly for those with sensitive skin who react to granular exfoliants. This is the most gentle form of exfoliation and buffs away dead skin cells without being overly harsh, leaving your skin silky soft.

Keep your skincare routine simple:

To minimise redness and address rosacea, we strongly recommend keeping your skincare routine simple and minimal. Redness is quite commonly triggered by sensitive skin and therefore you don’t need an extravagant skincare routine to manage and control your redness concerns. A simple calming cleanser, serum and moisturiser as your daily routine with the occasional hydrating mask is more than enough.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐   "I wanted to wait 4 weeks after starting to use my new routine before I left a review.. and this cleanser is amazing! Along with the anti-redness serum and the green tea moisturiser, my new routine has helped reduce the redness and irritation of my rosacea and left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated." - Kaliopo 

Ensure your skincare consists of gentle and soothing ingredients:

Natural ingredients will typically be more gentle and soothing which is exactly what your inflamed skin is craving. Ingredients which ensure your skin has balanced PH levels are really important. If your skin is either too acidic or too alkaline, it’s no longer strong enough to protect itself. Natural and gentle ingredients such as Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Liquorice Root, Milk Thistle and Green Tea are all beautiful anti-inflammatories that you should be incorporating into your routine.

GREEN TEA INFUSED HYDRATING MOISTURISER ($59.95)

This moisturiser is a triple force to be reckoned with. The vegan hyaluronic acid, holding 1000 times it's molecular weight in water goes to immediate work in hydrating your skin to the fullest effect. The desert lime also provides high forms of moisture, whilst also including levels of Vitamin C to assist in brightening and reducing pigmentation. The Green Tea assists with inflammation to reduce swelling and redness. These three key ingredients work perfectly together to provide the ultimate hydrated finish.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐  "This moisturiser that actually soaks in and makes my dry skin feel smooth without feeling oily, even by the end of the day - no dry spots or oily spots. perfect for my difficult skin" - Kelly

Be mindful of the types of foods in your diet:

If your redness isn’t necessarily medical related but rather based on environmental and lifestyle factors, making some changes in your diet can really push the needle in reducing your inflammation. Foods which tend to be more acidic often trigger redness. As hard as it may be at first, try to avoid spicy foods, hot sauces, vinegar and dairy. Instead, incorporate sweet potatoes, pumpkins, cucumber and turmeric into your diet.

Following these four key steps can really help address your redness concerns. We also recommend considering our range of natural anti-inflammatory skincare products specifically formulated to address redness and rosacea. We also have the AVA SOCIETY live chat available between the hours of 7AM - Midnight (Sydney time) 7 days a week where you can speak directly to one of our skin specialists for further information.

If your redness seems more medical related, consult your local dermatologist.
