April is designated as Rosacea Awareness Month by the National Rosacea Society (NRS). For us at PRIORI®,it is something that we are very passionate about and want to raise awareness for long after April is ended. As many as 45 million people worldwide suffer from rosacea! That is an astonishing number, and what is even more surprising is that only a small fraction is being treated for it.
Typical signs of rosacea include frequent flushing/blushing, persistent redness, bumps and pimples, and visible blood vessels. Other symptoms from this disorder can include burning and stinging, skin thickening and even swelling; symptoms can also develop beyond the face, appearing on areas such as the neck and chest. It is common for symptoms of rosacea to appear after the age of 30, starting simply as redness on the cheeks, nose or forehead. Rosacea has no boundries – it can affect all people and all skin types.
While treatment for rosacea should be evaluated by a physician, proper skin care should also be considered. PRIORI® Skincare products are free of artificial fragrances, which can irritate rosacea conditions, and many PRIORI® products and professional treatment regimens have been clinically proven to help improve rosacea:
The photos below show results for the treatment of reddening of the skin using a PRIORI® Skincare regimen of Idebenone Complex Smooth Lines twice daily for six weeks. A 58% improvement in redness was shown in this study.
CoffeeBerry®** Perfecting Minerals are the only minerals with CoffeeBerry® extract that are clinically proven to improve rosacea. A clinical study study showed a 23% improvement in red pigmentation (rosacea) after a 7-week regimen of Perfecting Minerals. Perfecting Minerals are the foundation of choice for rosacea suffers; they are 100% natural, gentle to the skin, and while the minerals help to conceal redness, they also work to help improve rosacea conditions.
If you suffer from rosacea, ask your physician or skincare professional about incorporating PRIORI® Skincare products into your regimen. A PRIORI® Skincare regimen can be a simple step in a rosacea sufferer’s quest for relief!
