Three signs that you may develop rosacea

Three signs that you may develop rosacea

Are you concerned that you may develop rosacea or that it is already starting to manifest on your skin?

Many people in Ireland have the tendency to develop rosacea which is an inflammatory skin condition that typically presents as a butterfly pattern across the cheeks and nose but may also affect other parts of the face, including, in extreme cases, the eyes.

So are you likely to develop this skin condition? Read on to find out three early warning signs that you may develop it in the future.

Remember, forewarned is forearmed so if you suspect that you are a candidate then the earlier you get on good, anti-inflammatory skincare products daily, such as Anti-Redness Concentrate and Lipid Repair Concentrate the better.

Three common factors in determining if you are at risk for developing rosacea:

Heredity – is it in your family? Rosacea can run in families, do your parents, grandparents or siblings show the typical redness and flushing of rosacea?

Asthma – linked to inflammatory disorders, this is a warning sign of potential inflammatory and vascular skin disorders such as rosacea, if you have asthma yourself or if it is in your immediate family.

Arthritis – just like asthma, a family history of arthritis can be seen in many rosacea cases, it seems like many of these immune/autoimmune/inflammatory conditions can run together so be sure to mention any such family history to your skin therapist at consultation.      

What to do now to reduce the likelihood of developing / worsening rosacea?

  • Avoid inflammatory foods such as spicy dishes, caffeine, alcohol
  • Keep your skincare clean – no perfumes, sulphates or essential oils and no fabric conditioner in your pillowcases or facecloths
  • Keep showers warm, not hot
  • Wear sunscreen every day
  • Use anti-inflammatory serum daily such as Anti-Redness Concentrate along with a daily SPF30. At night use Lipid Repair Concentrate to strengthen skin function.

Has winter aged your skin? Enzyme therapy will help!

Do you feel like the winter has aged you? Is your skin dull, sluggish, rough or patchy? 

Don’t worry, you just need a skin reboot!

Enzyme therapy facials are perfect for skin that needs a boost after dull, drying winter has wreaked its havoc.

At Skin Essentials by Mariga’s Wexford-based skin clinic, we specialise in restoring and rejuvenating unresponsive and lacklustre skin to a beautiful, radiant healthy glow.

Utilising the rejuvenating power of natural fruit enzymes we create a series of three treatments especially for your skin which will progressively smooth, brighten, hydrate, nourish and restore your skin to a smooth, radiant, youthful complexion.

For a deep skin restoration effect, you will have three treatments, 10-14 days apart, each tailored on the results of the last, to achieve maximum cellular stimulation. Then move on to monthly maintenance treatments to ensure your skin stays in great condition all year round.

Each enzyme therapy facial takes 45 minutes and prices start at €68 per treatment.
(You can upgrade to a deluxe 60 minute facial for even more luxury and relaxation)!

As well as the customised enzyme therapy each facial includes a comforting plant extract mask tailored for your skin on the day, biodynamic drainage or tension release facial massage, extractions if necessary and a hot stone shoulder massage. Bliss!

Some of the many fruit enzymes we may use in your customised treatment include passionfruit for firming and rejuvenating, raspberry for calming, peach for skin softening or papaya for exfoliation. But no matter which we choose, your treatment will be blissfully relaxing as well as deeply supporting for your skin, inside and out.
