If you have just been diagnosed with Rosacea you will have been offered conventional medication for this chronic skin condition, but for many people prescription therapies are unsatisfactory mainly because they normally involve the long term use of anti-biotics. 

Frequently sufferers turn to herbal ingredients for relief of their persistent facial redness and associated conditions in an effort to avoid the harmful side effects created by these drugs.

The most useful and frequently used herbal compounds that are thought to help include liqourice, feverfew, green tea, oatmeal, lavender, chamomile and tea tree oil.

The majority of these herbs have defined anti-inflammatory properties and at Penny Badger Botanicals we favour the use of Organic Arctic Oats Extract which is part of our ‘Calming Complex’ preparation, and it is included because of its healing properties in combination with the other active ingredients that include Rose, Pomegranate Extract, Green Tea, Liqourice, Allantoin, Comfrey and Bisabolol derived from Chamomile.  We have found these to be regenerating for the skin as well as soothing, anti-inflammatory and hydrating.

To calm and soothe we suggest the use of our following products: 

Simplicity Rose Floral Toner for Acne Rosacea 200ml

Simplicity Rose Day Moisturiser for Acne Rosacea 100ml

Simplicity Rose Cleansing Lotion for Acne Rosacea 200ml 

 

Pure plant oils can benefit this skin type by delivering intense nutrients in the form of vitamins A & E and Essential Fatty Acids and are particularly beneficial when used under your daily moisturiser for extra protection.

We recommend :

Simplicity Calming Facial Serum

 

Included some lifestyle suggestions to adopt in conjunction with our 'Simplicity' range:
