Sensitive skin, couperose

Do you often experience unpleasant skin reactions to different cosmetic products, such as redness, burning, skin erosion or bumps? The skin also feels very dry and fragile and you have the tendency towards blushing and flushing? These are the dermatological symptoms of the sensitive skin type. 

Nearly 65% of the women aged 25+ worldwide suffer the redness on their face. There are several contributing factors, as allergy, environmental damage (sun, heat, wind, cold), stress, even alcohol and spicy food. Additionally, the skin disorders as acne, psoriasis, eczema, contact dermatitis, couperose or rosacea are often present in this condition.

Couperose is a condition redness appears due to the presence of small, dilated red blood vessels visible due to poor elasticity of the capillary walls. The redness is localized mainly on the cheeks, cheekbones, nose, forehead and chin. The more serious and chronic condition is called rosacea.

As of the skin hypersensitivity you should pay attention on the products you use: there should be only few ingredients and little/no fragrance, avoid products with alcohol, deodorant, antibacterial ingredients, retinoids, waterproof cosmetics, never use old products. For the new product, check the skin reaction applying it behind the ear or the inner side of forearm – only after this you can use it over the whole face. Use the sunscreen year round and always remember to moisturize the skin. Check the allergy for certain substances and correct your diet and skincare regimen.

The right facial treatments is the best solution for this problem. The organic cosmetic company Anna Lotan offers a product line Alodem as an ideal care for sensitive thin skin with visible capillaries.
