Traditionally, rosy cheeks are a sign of good health, and a dewy tint gives a youthful, feminine glow. But as we get older, an underlying redness in our skin can be a sign of a larger inflammatory skin condition that can become persistent and difficult to manage.
“Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition causing reddening of the skin and can present in a variety of forms, from flushing to telangiectasia, from blood vessels to acne pustules and rashes.”
“Rosacea is most often found in lighter skin types, but this underlying inflammation can often show up in darker skin tones and can present as acne lesions, pigmented areas, and blood vessels. purplish blood, explains the superstar dermatologist. “When I look at the skin at the cellular level, many darker skinned clients have significant underlying inflammation. Education about rosacea as a skin condition is essential to ensure that skin care regimens do not exacerbate redness and cause additional inflammation. Rosacea can be caused by various entities, genetics, history of acne, environmental stressors, and can be triggered by anything, such as sun exposure, spicy foods, alcohol, or alcohol. stress.
“Rosacea is often overlooked in these darker skin tones, and many ‘standard’ skin care products can make the underlying inflammation worse. Using harsh soaps and scrubs will inflame the skin and create an inflammatory response on the cell layer of the skin. The products must be carefully tailored to the individual’s skin type, and this is what the “By Dr Vali” skin care line is all about.
Dr. Vali recommends the key ingredients to watch out for in your skin care regimen to protect against unwanted redness:
1: Arbutin: This natural molecule extracted from bearberry reduces melanin production, providing brightening and brightening effects, reducing the appearance of post-inflammatory pigmentation, sun spots (sun spots) and uneven skin tone. Arbutin also has protective qualities and is slow release, therefore gentle on the skin and can be used twice a day with minimal side effects and irritation.
2: Azeleic Acid: This natural acid is found in grains such as barley, wheat and rye. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects translate into its effectiveness in the treatment of discoloration resulting from sensitivity and brittleness and the “redness” appearance typical of inflammatory rosacea. Azeleic acid increases cell turnover, so it can also reduce the severity of post-acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
3: Transexamic acid: most commonly used in medical settings to control bleeding (such as nosebleeds or heavy periods) Transexamic acid is now recognized for its place in the treatment of skin conditions. Topical and intradermal application has been shown to reduce vascularity, inflammation and pigmentation.
