Rosacea is a common skin condition affecting millions of people worldwide, characterized by red, itchy skin, and sometimes even bumps and painful inflammations. For those who have this condition, discomfort and insecurity may accompany the physical symptoms. Whether you are seeking to manage your own rosacea, or for your little one, understanding the best ingredients in skincare products such as cleansers or moisturizers can make all the difference. Here, we will explore the best ingredients to look for, helping you navigate towards calmer, happier skin. 

A literature review, conducted by Danuta Nowicka et al., emphasizes the importance of selecting skincare products tailored to soothe redness and constrict blood vessels for those with rosacea. These products should prioritize a low level of fragrance, be free of irritating ingredients, and have the ability to rebuild the skin barrier. 

jojoba oil

They recommend looking for ingredients such as: sweet almond extract, known for its ability to soothe, nourish, and soften the skin; wheat germ, rich in vitamin E and antioxidants; avocado oil, a deeply moisturizing ingredient that can help replenish the skin’s natural lipid barrier; evening primrose oil, known for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to soothe irritated skin; and jojoba oil, which closely resembles the skin’s natural oils to help balance oil production. 

Additionally, ingredients like soy extract, d-panthenol, allantoin, and peptides are highlighted for their soothing effects on the skin, promoting hydration and supporting the skin’s repair processes. For anti-inflammatory benefits, ingredients such as hops, cornflower, green tea, linseed, and chamomile are suggested for calming the skin. Products with probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics can also be beneficial to help stimulate the growth of natural skin microflora, the diverse community microorganisms on the skin that contribute to its health and function. 

aloe vera

Additional ingredients such as niacinamide, known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties; aloe vera, with soothing and hydrating effects; and coconut oil, offering moisturizing benefits, are particularly beneficial for rosacea-prone skin.
