Skincare for Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin condition that affects the face. It’s often a long term condition that causes the skin to become red and inflamed, as the result of inflammation in the small blood vessels that feed the face, called capillaries.
It can be frustrating, stressful and embarrassing, so we’re here to help.

The cause of rosacea is as yet still unknown, but it is known to have a genetic link. This means that if a close family member has rosacea, then you have a higher chance of also having it.
It isn’t contagious, instead, rosacea is linked with high levels of inflammation. It may be associated with long term exposure to UV light from the sun and possibly also with changes in the nervous system.
Rosacea can also cause the formation of spots and cysts to form that can lead to a condition called acne rosacea. This is characterised by red bumps and pus filled, large, angry spots or clusters of spots.
Alkaline Skincare for Rosacea
If you think back to school science lessons, you might remember having to use thin strips of litmus paper to test for acidity or alkalinity. This is a measure of pH, that is, how acidic or alkaline (the opposite of acidic) something is.
The skin is naturally alkaline, but most skincare products are acidic when applied to the skin. To us, that doesn’t make sense, so we developed a range of alkalising skincare products that care for the skin.
Our products contain an alkalising silica salt complex that supports the needs of the skin deep down in the lower levels. They help to stimulate healthy skin cell regeneration meaning that the causes of rosacea are tackled deep within these skin layers, promoting healthy, hydrated, nourished and happy skin.
At Sönd, we believe in a holistic approach to managing unhappy skin. This means living a healthy lifestyle, mindful of the triggers that can cause rosacea to flare up (alcohol, spicy food, hot baths) and using skincare that respects the skin. There are also topical treatments that can be helpful for treating rosacea.
Laser treatments, microneedling and microdermabrasion can also be effective at treating rosacea but they must only ever be carried out by qualified skincare professionals.
Getting your skincare routine right can significantly help to manage the symptoms of rosacea. Along with understanding your triggers to help prevent flare ups, your skin can become calm, less irritable and happy.
