Can’t Calm Rosacea? #candew!

Can’t make a moisturizer for über sensitive skin? #candew!

25% of women who have rosacea associate their skin irritation with the use of moisturizers.* Red Better Daily Therapy Moisturizer isn’t only ultra-gentle (sans all 76 common allergens) but also features specific therapeutic benefits like anti-cathelicidins,** anti-inflammatories and antioxidants (all important for rosacea management) and anti-microbials to target Demodex folliculorum.

A simple cleanser can’t make a difference, can it? #candew!

By reducing irritation and protecting the skin’s compromised barrier, as well as providing antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory therapy, the right cleanser can “enhance the overall management” of rosacea.”*


Can I ever get a facial if I have rosacea? #candew!

Our “Oh So N-ice” facial uses only our ultra-gentle formulations and anti-inflammatory Red Better products — plus strategic cool compresses — to soothe and relieve red or hyperreactive skin. It calms and cools, and treats skin to some quality time with reparative antioxidants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.

Rosacea can’t be successfully managed, can it? #candew!

Rosacea has a “complex, multifactorial pathophysiology”** — basically meaning it has several symptoms and many possible causes. Some of these include sensitivity due to the skin’s barrier dysfunction, photo-damage, too much cathelicidin (pro-inflammatory) in the skin, and certain mites called Demodex folliculorum. Management is possible but it does require, more than anything else, prevention: avoid sun and light exposure, use a powerful (yet allergen-free) mineral sun AND light screen (even indoor lights can cause a photosensitive reaction), proper skin care (avoid your allergens — get a patch test to be sure), and a good dermatologist (some cases may need medication).** Think you might have rosacea? Stay calm and follow these steps.


Even experts are known to mistake one skin disease for another, and rosacea can look like other conditions to an untrained eye (you shouldn’t be self-diagnosing, no matter how confident you feel about your Google medical degree). Seek out a dermatologist —ideally one who specializes in rosacea.


“External irritants, which may be included in many poorly selected skin-care and cosmetic products, can exacerbate signs and symptoms of rosacea.”** Knowing which allergens you, in particular, are sensitive to, is incredibly empowering and helps you avoid exactly what you need to. A patch test saves you the confusion and frustration (and expense!) of random trial and error.


There’s a reason why so many rosacea products contain antioxidants and ant-inflammatories — they help reduce inflammation and damage from oxidation. But some products with these important ingredients also contain allergens and irritants. Red Better has only antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and anti-microbials that are non-allergens, providing therapeutic benefits without the sensitizers known to trigger rosacea.
