Avoiding the triggers of rosacea because is difficult, and the next best thing we can do is manage its symptoms through skin care. The good thing is, we have just the right answers for you: CANhaveTODAY’s Soothing Juggernaut and Healing Legends. But before we start diving into the products, we need to understand rosacea first.
All you need to know about rosacea
Rosacea is a skin condition wherein the skin gets bumps, redness, swelling, skin dryness, pain, and visible blood vessels on the face. The bumps can be filled with pus, and there may be thickness of the skin if rosacea has persisted for years. Symptoms usually last a few minutes, disappear, and appear again. This come-and-go manner can last weeks to months.
This skin condition may be mistaken as acne because it presents on the face, especially on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. The skin on the neck and chest can also get rosacea, but the face is the most common. The eyes can even be included, it can be swollen, dry, sore, and irritated along with the eyelids. This condition is called “ocular rosacea.”
Triggers and risk factors
A person with rosacea blushes more easily than other people. Blushing or flushing is usually the first sign of a flare up, followed by swelling, then the appearance of the skin bumps. Anything that can widen the blood vessels can trigger rosacea, like extreme temperatures, spicy food, alcohol, and the sun. Exercise, emotions, medications, and any irritant can also cause flare-ups!
Anyone can have this troublesome skin condition, but females are at most risk, especially those of ages 30-50 years. People with skin that gets easily sunburned and smokers are also at risk. Most important of all, if your any one in your family has rosacea, there’s a chance you might have it, too.
There is no known cure for rosacea, but you can manage its symptoms. Prevention is better than cure, but we know that rosacea triggers are very difficult to avoid. So, treating the symptoms is our best option.
First off, prescription topicals like creams and gels aid by making the blood vessels shrink, reducing redness. Antibiotics also help by reducing the swelling and redness of a flare-up. Another amazing option for taking care of your sensitive skin is a rosacea skin care routine. The basic steps in skin care are important to protect your skin from environmental factors and nourish it from the outside.

Best skin care routine & products for rosacea skin
Knowing that rosacea can be triggered by environmental factors and irritants like strong chemicals, we must avoid strong products. The trick to taking care of rosacea-prone skin is using gentle and fragrance-free skin care products. Take care of your rosacea-prone skin by following these steps:
- Cleanse with a gentle cleanser. Cleansing your face will get rid of the debris and residue that could trigger a flare-up. It also removes excess oil and bacteria, both of which could cause acne.
- Moisturize your skin. By using a moisturizer, you lock in moisture and hydrate your skin. Not only that, but moisturizing also makes your skin more comfortable and reduces irritation.
- Apply sunscreen. The sun is a rosacea trigger, so we cannot stress enough that people with rosacea need to avoid it. A sunscreen gives your skin the protection it needs from the sun, and you need to apply it even though you are indoors or if it’s cloudy. Most importantly, don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every two hours for continued protection!
- Soothe the skin with calming salve. Salves protect the affected skin and calm the symptoms, especially the burning sensation and redness. For you, we recommend Soothing Juggernaut and Healing Legends, two salves made with all-natural products. These salves will give your skin relief like no other, read on to find out how.
