Make-up can be a woman's best friend. It can help you to emphasize your best features and can help you to conceal the features that you don't like. It can also help you to conceal rosacea. You need the right beauty products and the right knowledge to reduce the bumps and redness resulting from rosacea and at the same time minimize irritation. The following tips will help you to look better even when you have rosacea.
You need a primer with silicone which will smooth the wrinkles and pores. It will also work as a barrier between your skin and the make-up you going to use. When you use this primer, your skin will look flawless. When it is working as a barrier between the other make-up and your skin, it will prevent any possible irritation caused by the make-up and the rosacea present on your skin.
Use gel or cream
You should use a gel or cream foundation, blush and concealer. You need to use these formulations because they are more moisturising in comparison to powder. If your skin has flakiness due to rosacea, cream or gel formulations will be able to conceal it better. If you use powder, it can make flakiness more pronounced. You also should not use powder because powder can cause irritation in your sensitive skin which already has rosacea.
Use the right tool
You should use a brush instead of a sponge. It is very important to use clean applicators and clean make up. If you use sponge, it will be difficult for you to clean it properly. On the other hand a brush will be easier to clean. The same applies for other make-up tools that you use. If anything can cause irritation to your skin, you should avoid that tool until your rosacea problem is over.
You need to take care of yourself. Do everything that you need to avoid the possible flare-ups. If flare-ups happen, even after that you need to continue with your work. Try to keep your skin clean and free of make-up whenever you are not going out. You should feel good and look good. If necessary, you can spend more time on your hair an outfit so that you feel confident even after you have rosacea. You will need to take extra care and take the home remedies or go to your doctor to find a solution for the problem as soon as possible. You also need to drink enough water to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
Take care of your eyes
You need to take care of your eyes when you are suffering from rosacea. Sometimes some people experience rosacea symptoms in their eyes which include redness, gritty sensation and itchiness. That is why you need to take care of your eyes. Use very mild products on your eye. It is best to avoid liquid eyeliner. Such an eyeliner can get into your eyes easily. Also avoid waterproof mascara. It is very difficult to remove waterproof mascara and for removing it you may need to use harsher removers. You may also need to pull and tug on the eye lids. If you do that and use harsher make-up removers, rosacea flare ups may happen. If it is necessary, change your eyeliners and other make-up products used for the eye for a few days until your rosacea problem is resolved.
If you use make-ups wisely, it can help you to conceal the redness, flakiness and other symptoms of rosacea are clearly visible on your skin and look better whenever you want to.
