Autumn skin care: Moisturise to reduce symptoms of rosacea
As we move from summer into the colder months of autumn, we need to start looking after our skin in order to protect it from harsh central heating and biting winds.
According to the Daily Mail, patches of red skin on the cheeks can be a form of rosacea, which is exacerbated by heat, cold, sensitivity to products and allergies, so switching to organic beauty products might be a good idea for anyone who suffers from the same problem.
Sally Penford of the International Dermal Institute told the newspaper: "Rosacea is a progressive inflammatory disorder that begins with scratchy sensations and flushing associated with specific triggers, but can later lead to burst capillaries, facial swelling and breakouts.
"I’d recommend seeking advice from a professional skin therapist to determine what are the issues and what the triggers may be."
Individuals with ruddy cheeks may find their skin calms down if they avoid alcohol and caffeine and try to not expose their face to extreme temperatures.
As well as that, a number of natural beauty products could help soothe angry skin, such as rich moisturisers.
Skin care fans might also like to try certain oils to bring down inflammation.
Chey Birch, aromatherapist and founder of Black Chicken Remedies, told the newspaper that essential oils and carrier oils can often help.
"Carrier oils such as rosehip, jojoba, evening primrose or argan oil are really helpful with rosacea because they regulate the sebum and reduce irritation," she pointed out.
"Essential oils including lavender help to calm the skin, as well as having anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties."
The main thing to do to improve the appearance of rosacea is to keep the skin hydrated. This means avoiding any abrasive chemicals on red patches and keeping the cheeks well moisturised.
On sunny autumn days, people with rosacea should still apply suncream even if it’s not that warm, because strong sunlight is thought to make the condition worse.
In the meantime, it is best not to worry because often it can be a temporary problem, and there are plenty of treatments to get rid of unsightly lumps and bumps on the face.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
