Rosacea Be Gone! Balancing Your Skin Tone with Harmonia
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects millions of people in the United States. This chronic condition is characterized by redness and inflammation of the face, which can be accompanied by burning or stinging sensations, swelling, small bumps, or visible veins. While there is no cure for rosacea, managing flare-ups and reducing symptoms is possible both with lifestyle changes and topical treatments.
Lifestyle changes for Rosacea
Managing rosacea often starts with lifestyle changes. Avoiding common triggers, such as spicy foods, alcohol consumption, and extreme temperatures is important for controlling flare-ups. Additionally, managing stress levels may be beneficial as stress can worsen symptoms. Keeping the skin clean and protected from sun exposure are also important steps in managing rosacea.
We know that there are best practices for rosacea flares, but, these are not always easy or enjoyable! Why should you have to give up on things you love to feel confident in your skin.
Topical natural ingredients for Rosacea
Stoic Beauty Skincare's Harmonia Balancing Cream is a powerful and effective way to reduce the appearance of rosacea. The all-natural ingredients found in this cream have been carefully chosen to target redness, inflammation and irritation associated with rosacea. Ingredients include star ingredient golden chamomile.
The antioxidants present in golden chamomile may quench free radicals. Free radicals are blame for deterioration of the elastic and collagen fibres of lymphatic and blood vessels. Certainly to be avoided!
In 2005, a group of scientists from Greece and France published a paper describing the results of a clinical trial testing safety and efficacy of a cream containing golden chamomile extract in the treatment of rosacea. The participants (125 in active and 121 in placebo group) who were clinically diagnosed with moderate rosacea, were instructed to apply the cream on their face twice daily for 12 weeks. Just before the treatment, and every four weeks during the trial, both the participants and investigators assessed the results.
The improvement in erythema and the overall rosacea score was significantly higher in the group treated with the cream containing the Golden Chamomile Extract. Progressive improvement during the treatment suggests that that duration of treatment beyond 12 weeks could be even more beneficial. Overall, the efficacy of golden chamomile cream was comparable to the drug metronidazole! This is very promising and very exciting news for natural skincare enthusiasts.
Argan oil for Rosacea
Argan oil is another natural ingredient found in Stoic Beauty Skincare's Harmonia. Argan oil has many beneficial properties for the skin, being rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It helps to soothe irritation, reduce inflammation, and replenish lipids that have been lost from the skin as a result of rosacea. The fatty acids help to maintain the barrier of the skin, and keep it hydrated and nourished.
Niacinamide and N-Acetyl Glucosamine
You may have heard of niacinamide, a natural ingredient in many skin care products. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, and it has been linked to reducing redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. N-acetyl glucosamine is another Vitamin B derivative that helps to regulate the production of ceramides, lipids necessary for healthy skin barrier function. Many formulas use one or the other, but we've discovered the enhancing effects of these ingredients working in tandem.
Rosacea and Sensitive Skin
At Stoic Beauty Skincare, we understand that rosacea sufferers often have sensitive skin. That's why our Rosacea Reducing Cream is packed with natural ingredients designed to soothe and nourish the skin while reducing inflammation, redness and irritation associated with rosacea. We included Seabuckthorn oil, a beautiful orange berry that grows natively in Northwestern Europe. It has a very high proportion of vitamin E, carotenoids, phytosterols and essential fatty acids, all of which have beneficial medicinal properties that are gentle on the skin. Some users of metronidazole, the prescription medicine most commonly used in rosacea treatment, can find the cream too harsh for sensitive skin. Contact dermatitis has been reported with use of metronidazole, and if you are someone who has lost hope for topical treatments, we made this Harmonia specifically for you!
Stoic Beauty Skincare's Harmonia Balancing Cream is an all-natural, gentle and effective way to reduce inflammation, redness and irritation associated with rosacea. The special blend of ingredients including golden chamomile extract, argan oil and seabuckthorn oil helps to soothe and nourish redness flares without irritating sensitive skin.
