Rosacea is a complex and chronic skin condition that affects over 45 million people worldwide. Often misdiagnosed, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the disease despite how common it is.
The Rosacea Resource Centre has been developed to help share important information, the latest research and up to date scientific data in order for doctors, dermatologists and patients to manage rosacea-prone skin on an ongoing basis.
There are five general skin types:
does not feel dry or oily, and pores are visible but not large or clogged, either. After washing, normal skin feels smooth and comfortable, and break outs occur sporadically.
has a thin and papery texture and flakes often, especially in the colder months. Pores are very fine, and after a wash it feels tight. Flaky patches appear by midday, and moisturizer must be applied throughout the day to keep it hydrated.
feels over-hydrated and looks shiny. Pores are visible and easily clogged, resulting in frequent break outs and blackheads. After a wash skin feels good, but by midday shine (excess oil) appears around the forehead, nose, and chin.
skin is normal with a few dry patches and a few oily patches. Dryness is usually on the cheeks, and oiliness on the T-zone (forehead and nose).
skin can be very easily irritated and reactive to products that contain fragrances, dyes or other harsh chemicals and the environment. After a wash it feels dry and itchy in places, and can flake out in patches and appear red and occasionally break out.
