Cool, Calm & Confident...
In celebration of Rosacea Awareness Month.
With the skin positivity movement on the rise, it’s encouraging to see the growing acceptance of championing REAL skin in all its glory… blemishes, redness, the lot! However, it’s so easy to feel left behind if we’re still not embracing the skin we live in, especially when struggling with a debilitating skin condition, like Rosacea.
Along with these internal anxieties, there are many daily factors that can play total havoc with our skin and although we aspire to have a healthy flush of colour across our cheeks, Rosacea - a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects 1 in 10 people in the UK alone - can cause much more than that. Its trademark symptoms include persistent redness or flushing, warmth to the skin, sensitivity, bumps and blemishes, visible blood vessels and irritation - all exasperating symptoms that can kill our confidence instantly.
Although there is no clear cause of Rosacea or facial redness, there are a number of aggravating factors that can provoke it:
- Internal Stress
- Hot drinks
- Strongly spiced food
- Irritating ingredients in skincare
- Hot showers
While there is also NO cure for Rosacea, the skin condition CAN be managed. This month, join us in celebrating Rosacea Awareness Month, as we tackle and conceal the redness and help you to stick two fingers up to the embarrassment that can come from having less-than-perfect skin.
Step forward Sorted Skin 5in1 Anti-Redness Day Cream SPF50.
Using green microcapsule technology, our light, versatile day cream instantly neutralises the appearance of redness, caused by red skin conditions like Rosacea. With 8 naturally-active ingredients such as oat-extracts to reduce itching and irritation, a volcanic mineral, zeolite, to repair and strengthen the skin, and Pentavitin to lock in moisture, it's the perfect formula for happy, calm and healthy skin.
With regular and continued use, it helps the skin to maintain it’s natural protective barrier whilst tackling the causes of redness.
Suitable for all skin types, our deeply nourishing, hypoallergenic cream, containing Pro-Vitamin B5 and Shea Butter, protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays with a powerful SPF50, and natural blue light filters to stop inflammation and premature ageing caused by phones and computer screens.
