The Best Gifts for People with Rosacea

Having a good skincare routine is the key to having healthy and glowing skin. This routine of yours can stall skin ageing and can help you avoid many problems that come with poor care. Unfortunately, there are some skin types that cannot be treated with simple and regular products, and the best example of this is skin with rosacea.

Rosacea is a skin condition that manifests with face redness which makes the skin extremely sensitive to many ingredients. Even though there’s no cure, there are many gentle products that can control the condition and reduce its signs and symptoms. So, if you’re self-conscious about this condition, show them that you’re familiar with their struggles with a gift that can help soothe their skin.

What Products Are Good for Rosacea?

Natural Mineral Foundations


Firstly, it’s of vital importance to know the problem of traditional cosmetics and that is they can clog pores which can cause blackheads (comedones hence the name), whiteheads, redness and numerous other skin problems.

Usually, it contains alcohol in it which can seriously trigger some skin conditions, especially rosacea which will result in immediate skin inflammation. That’s why people with sensitive skin and skin-related problems should use mineral foundation and makeup in general.

So, what is a mineral foundation exactly? As the name implies, these products are made of materials that are extracted from the Earth which makes it completely natural. Generally speaking, natural foundations and makeup are made from pure minerals like zinc oxide, iron oxide, talc and titanium dioxide which are micronized and milled to create makeup.

Unlike regular foundations, gentle and effective mineral foundations sit on the pore because of their nature, rather than entering inside the pores. This results in less or no pore clogging at all and less skin inflammation. The best of all is that these foundations can still help in reducing pore visibility and blemishes while helping you achieve an impeccable and smooth skin appearance.

Also known as vegan foundations, they’re in fact perfect for any type of skin and skin condition since they also don’t contain alcohol and other drying and damaging ingredients. Given the fact that minerals are designed to bind with oils, this means that mineral natural foundations will bind with the skin’s natural oils which will result in a smooth and glowing finish without having to add an additional base prior to applying the makeup.

This foundation can come in liquid, powder and cream stick form for easier application. The colour range and skin coverage are breathtaking and thanks to its composition it’s ideal for all skin types, but mainly for sensitive and rosacea-prone skin.

Silk Pillowcases

You may don’t know but pillowcases can cause breakouts and irritation especially if you don’t change them frequently. But did you know that sleeping on itchy pillowcases like the ones made from microfiber and polyester can irritate your skin?! This certainly won’t go in favour of those with Rosacea since such pillowcases can worsen their condition even more.

Silk is considered the best choice for people with numerous skin conditions since its soft and smooth fabric. Silk pillowcases have a less abrasive surface that won’t trigger the skin at all. In fact, practice shows that sleeping on a silk pillowcase can reduce inflammation and provide one with relief from itching.

People with rosacea should keep their skin well-hydrated and unfortunately, most fabrics will absorb everything from the face. Luckily, this isn’t the case with silk pillowcases, since they can also contain small amounts of Sericin which is a natural protein from silkworms that can form a smooth film on the skin to prevent moisture loss.

Cooling Face Mist


Just like toners, facial sprays can provide instant refreshment, especially during summertime. They’re great for refreshing in warm environments and rooms where there’s too hot and the skin can dry out completely. This can be extremely bad for the skin with rosacea since this skin is already dryer and inflamed on its own.

Ideally, you should pamper a person with rosacea with a refreshing spray that’s free from alcohol, fragrance and some other potential triggers. Instead, you should choose mists with anti-oxidants that can help minimise skin sensitivity and dryness. Ideally, you should look for face sprays and mists with thermal spring water, green tea, Centella Asiatica and some other calming and rejuvenating ingredients.

Gentle Face Cleaner

The use of natural and gentle skin products can maintain the needed hydration and moisture for skin with rosacea. That being said, the use of gentle face cleansers is key to reducing skin irritation and redness. In fact, their use can only heal, soothe and hydrate the skin from within which is essential for rosacea sufferers.

Some of the most helpful ingredients in face cleaners for rosacea are azelaic acid, rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn oil, tamanu oil, evening primrose oil, etc. On the other hand, avoiding ingredients like fragrance, alcohol, camphor, glycolic acid, lactic acid, menthol and urea is essential for avoiding skin irritation.
