April is Rosacea Awareness Month!
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It’s characterized by facial redness, bumps, and swelling and can be triggered by various factors, including stress, spicy foods, alcohol, and extreme temperatures. While there is no cure for rosacea, people can take steps to manage the condition and improve the health and appearance of the skin.
Rosacea-prone skin is often sensitive and easily irritated, so it’s essential to use gentle skincare products that won’t aggravate symptoms. Look for products free of fragrances, alcohol, and other potential irritants. Avoiding harsh scrubs and exfoliants and opting for gentle cleansers and moisturizers can go a long way toward symptom management.
At Circadia, we understand the struggles that come with rosacea. April is Rosacea Awareness Month, which means it’s a great time to discuss effective treatments and products that can help alleviate the symptoms of this chronic skin condition.
Vitamin Veil Cleanser is an award-winning oil-based, nourishing cleanser that gently washes away impurities, revealing a silky veil of skin-soothing antioxidants. It gently removes makeup and debris while helping protect the skin’s natural barrier. It is gentle enough to use every day without causing additional irritation or dryness.
Chrono-Calm Serum is a lightweight water-based hydrating serum that soothes chronically irritated skin and improves the appearance of redness and dilated capillaries. This special formulation contains potent peptides, botanical extracts, and vitamins to gently nourish and calm the skin. Chrono-Calm is perfect for those with rosacea who experience frequent flare-ups.
Serum 71 is one of our newest formulations. It is an immune-boosting, nutrient-rich serum with a powerful trio of tranexamic, mandelic, and azelaic acids. Also included is a second generation Beta Glucan that helps improve the skin’s overall health.
Tranquili-Cream was specifically designed for those with sensitive skin and/or rosacea. It contains peptides and plant extracts that act as hydrating agents and powerful anti-irritants to help reduce the appearance of redness and itching sensations, to improve skin softness and comfort upon application.
Rose-Ease Relief Cream is an innovative product that helps calm the redness and irritation associated with rosacea, while aiding in controlling the demodex mite, thought to contribute to rosacea. This anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory formulation is lightweight and leaves skin feeling silky-smooth.
Post Peel Balm is a dynamic balm that is excellent for use after peels to calm and comfort skin, but also works great for windburn, after-waxing, and sensitive skin due to rosacea. It contains a skin-identical lipid complex that increases water-holding capacity and provides a semi-occlusive and protective barrier to gently soothe irritated and red skin. We love this for rosacea management because of its calming and anti-inflammatory properties.
Aloe & Calendula Calming Mist is a soothing blend of aloe, calendula, elderflower, rose, and seawhip extracts to help calm the discomfort associated with rosacea and sensitive skin. It makes a great spritz for after treatment and a retail product for clients who wish to calm their skin on the go.
Professional treatments can also help manage the symptoms and calm inflamed skin. Circadia’s Oxygen Rx System, Soothing Facial, and Custom Cooling Facial are all designed to target redness, fight inflammation and deliver soothed, nourished skin.
Cocoa & Oxygen Rx System
Circadia’s Oxygen Rx System delivers oxygen through a topical application that reduces the appearance of rosacea and has the ability to control bacteria associated with various types of acne. This refreshing facial will calm and soothe the skin while providing gentle exfoliation, refreshing the skin and pores with controlled oxygenation, reduce congestion and acne, and reduce redness and irritation, breathing new life into the skin.
Soothing Facial (Rosacea, Acne, Teen, Aging, Pregnancy Safe)
This relaxing facial will calm and soothe the skin while providing gentle exfoliation. This facial is packed with antioxidants, cooling agents and ingredients that will rejuvenate the skin and reduce the redness caused from rosacea, overexposure of the sun, or other irritations and sensitivities. An optional finish with ice globes will stimulate facial nerves and muscles to soothe their skin and leave them feeling revitalized.
Custom Cooling Facial (Rosacea, Sunburn, Acne, Irritated)
This ultimate calming facial will start with a cooling cleanse to help reduce redness and leave the skin feeling refreshed. The unique ingredients in the Snow Algae and Spirulina are known to repair the effects of time and are also high in nutrients. The green tea is partnered together with marshmallow extract to reduce inflammation and add hydration, while repairing and rejuvenating the skin.
