    Rosacea Treatment and care

    Treating your Rosacea with Grahams

    Rosacea is a chronic vascular disorder affecting the facial skin and eyes; often is characterized by a chronic cycle of remission and flare. Regardless of disease severity; there are cosmetic consequences for the patient including flushing, redness, telangiectasia (appearance of red blood vessels on the skin surface), papules, and/or pustules. Because there is no cure for the disease, management consists of the avoidance of disease triggers and the use of both prescription and over-the-counter products that work in concert to achieve remission, prevent flare, and camouflage disease manifestations such as flushing and redness.
     

    Keeping the skin soft

    Moisturising is important in order to maintain the softness and elasticity of the skin, and therapeutic moisturisers devoid of irritants are important adjunctive therapy in rosacea management. A large proportion of rosacea patients have dry skin, and some topical rosacea medications can cause further drying and irritation. Moisturisers formulated with a combination of emollients and humectants are recommended to help keep the skin intact to either repair or prevent skin barrier dysfunction. Furthermore, moisturising dry skin lessens the itchiness and irritation that rosacea patients often experience as a part of their condition. Of course we would always recommend our natural moisturising lotion!
     

    Known irritants

    The facial skin of patients with rosacea is often hyper irritable compared with that of healthy patients. Use of non irritant emollients helps to improve barrier function and provides a physical barrier to the ingress or irritants and trigger substances;as well as redressing symptoms of dryness. Several common skin care ingredients have been identified as rosacea triggering agents; these include astringents (ethanol) alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus oil; each of these are volatile agents that are likely to strip lipids and exacerbate trans epidermal water loss. Other reports indicate that benzyl alcohol (a known skin irritant) contributes to irritation and flare up.

    Some improvement

    There has been some minor improvement to severe eczema on hands and arms. Decrease i n itchiness of the skin. Will keep persisting to see if more improvement.

    Fabulous product

    I bought Grahams Conditioner as a recommended replacement for a botanical product from a company that had ceased trading. It is a brilliant find as it is gentle and soothing on my itchy scalp and leaves my hair soft and manageable. My only concern is that despite being listed as a UK company it came all the way from Australia……not good for my carbon footprint! Hopefully I will be able to find some nearer to home soon.

    Only this works

    Soothes itchiness caused by sensitivity

    SO light and un-aggravating

    Normally with my eczema lotion feels so heavy and can cause me to itch more, it's like you can feel it too much on your skin but not this! The oil and the lotion are so light that I don't have to wait around for it to dry and I don't have to restrain myself from itching it off! It's great! I can just put it on and get dressed and get in bed no problem! I wish it was sold more conveniently in the US but it was so worth it I may just order again! 20/10

    Great product

    I'm ordering my second tube of this gel, as it worked so well on my German Shepherd's recent hot spot. She tolerated it well (it is clearly soothing), & it took the swelling and redness down almost straight away each time we applied. We did need to keep applying it regularly for about a week, as she had a very raw, swollen patch of skin. Alternating the gel with Derma Cream was very effective.
