Have Rosacea? Here's Your Path to Healthier Skin

Have Rosacea? Here's Your Path to Healthier Skin - Sente Labs

Rosacea is a fairly common chronic skin condition that may lead to redness, acne, a thickening of the skin, and even irritation of the eyes.

As such, it can be very hard on those who are dealing with symptoms related to rosacea -- in fact, in surveys conducted by the National Rosacea Society (NRS), nearly 90 percent of rosacea patients said this condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41 percent reported it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements. Among respondents reporting severe rosacea, almost 88 percent indicated the disorder had negatively affected their professional interactions, and a majority (51 percent) said they had even missed work because of their condition.

While many offerings seek to improve overall skin health -- and by extension, bolster one's self-esteem and true beauty -- the focus rests on Senté's Dermal Repair Cream.

The first and only medical-grade skincare product to be recognized by the National Rosacea Society Seal of Acceptance program, our Dermal Repair Cream has been a longstanding favorite among our clients.

  • "This is my second bottle and I am never going back to any other face cream again. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle and hydrates my skin to a youthful glow. My redness has noticeably subsided after just a few months of use and my pores appear to be much smaller as well," Krystyna R. noted in a recent review.
  • "This is a great product. I am 73 with rosacea, oily, and aging sensitive skin. I have used many different brands and this is the only one to address all my skin problems," wrote Ginger T.

Science-Backed Solutions for Fighting Rosacea

“Although the occurrence of rosacea has been well documented over the centuries, virtually everything we now understand about the disorder in medical science has been discovered in the last 20 years,” said Dr. Julie Harper, clinical associate professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, as quoted by the NRS.

 “As a result of these advances, dermatologists are now able to identify and prescribe specific therapies for the various signs and symptoms based on a thorough understanding of the underlying disease process."

Senté's Dermal Repair Cream Gets Results

Our Dermal Repair cream does more than just reduce redness, but also works to promote deep hydration, reduce visible fine lines -- as well as the appearance of uneven skin tone -- and promote overall skin barrier health, the latter of which may also be very helpful to those who are dealing with rosacea.

The results speak for themselves: In a clinical study, 70% of subjects with sensitive skin showed reduced redness in 4 weeks. Further, 79% of subjects with sensitive skin agreed their skin was less sensitive and irritated in 2 weeks. In our shared journey to innovate and promote the world's best skincare products, we are proud of the results of our efforts in improving the lives of those who discover what we have to offer and find positive change there.

“Because of its effect on personal appearance, studies have demonstrated just how profoundly rosacea can damage the quality of people’s lives, as well as the positive impact of successful treatment,” Dr. Harper said. “Thanks to new approaches and important advances in medical therapy, it is increasingly possible to achieve clear or almost clear skin.”

Comprehensive Treatment and Protection Are Key

While our topical solutions may not be the entirety of one's skincare regimen related to rosacea, a variety of other treatment options exist. In addition to topical and oral therapies, some cases call for the usage of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. Speaking of light, the matter of sunlight is important to address as spring moves forward and summer approaches.

"Patients may apply non-irritating skin-care products as needed, and are advised to protect the skin from sun exposure using a sunscreen that delivers UVA/UVB protection with an SPF of 30 or higher... look for non-chemical (mineral) sunscreens that contain zinc or titanium dioxide," the NRS advised.

Senté has you covered there, too. Our Even Tone Mineral Sunscreen fulfills all of the above asks, offering SPF 40 coverage, UVA/UVB protection, and a mineral formulation that contains both zinc and titanium dioxide -- both natural antioxidants to reduce redness and inflammation. The sunscreen is also water resistant (up to 40 minutes) and blends effortlessly to provide coverage for a variety of skin tones.

The Bottom Line: A Confidence Boost

No matter your individual situation, it's important that you feel as comfortable (and as protected) as possible as April ends and the spring begins in earnest.

With this information in hand, we hope you choose to work with us to boost your confidence, and work toward healthier skin, in the days to come.
