The best oils for treating rosacea, eczema & problem skin

Those who suffer from eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, or sensitive skin know the struggle of finding skin care products to soothe and treat their ailing skin, without making it worse. From over-the-counter to prescription products, these skin conditions can be worsened or improved by what goes into your soaps, lotions, and skincare products. That’s why it’s important to find a good skincare regime that is simple and natural, based on organic and luxurious botanical oils.

Let’s briefly look at rosacea and eczema, what triggers them, and how the right skincare regime can help prevent flare-ups and soothe symptoms.

Rosacea and Eczema

Rosacea occurs primarily on the face and causes symptoms like severe blushing or flushing, hotness, redness, bumps, and swelling. The ruddy flush spreads over time to the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose, and can spread to the eyes, ears, chest, and back. These symptoms often come and go, with periods of time when they are more severe and times when they are milder.

Like rosacea, eczema presents as redness but also brings with it severe itching. Affected areas may become discoloured, blistered, crusty or scaly, and may weep. People with eczema are at an increased risk for developing skin infections because of their open skin.

Irritants you should avoid in skincare products

Fragrances and perfumes

  • The problem: Both synthetic and naturally derived fragrances can irritate sensitive skin.
  • What you can do: Be wary of products labelled as “fragrance-free,” since they may contain parabens and fragrances such as benzyl alcohol that also function as preservatives. Instead, choose natural, organic skincare products that you trust in origin and process.

Parabens

  • The problem: Methylparaben and butylparaben are commonly used preservatives found in many skin care products and cosmetics to prevent them from spoiling or cultivating bacteria. However, they can cause inflammation in people with eczema and rosacea prone skin.

Drying Ingredients

  • The problem: Alcohol, retinoids, and alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) such as glycolic acid, can all promote drying of the skin and can worsen eczema and rosacea.
  • What you can do: Try alcohol-free hydrating facial serums that use a gentle blend of natural and certified organic botanical oils, designed for women with sensitive skin.

Sulphates

  • The problem: Foaming cleansers typically have high levels of sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulphate (SLES). These surfactants are a known skin irritant and can impair skin barrier function and allow water to escape from the skin, leading to loss of hydration.
  • What you can do: Try oil based cleansers that respect your skin’s biology. They work by gently removing pore-clogging impurities without stripping away the natural oils your skin needs. The result? A revitalized complexion that feels clean, nourished, and refreshed.

Check out this review from one of our customers who had been having problems with her skin until she tried LOVESKIN:

I have suffered from eczema my entire life, but never on my eyes. About two months ago, I started getting eczema on my eyes and it was gradually getting worse, nothing was working and last week it got to the point where my eyes were so puffy, the eczema was cutting the skin on my eyelids and I was struggling to sleep. I would put a cold gel eye sleeping mask on just to have some form of comfort. I am 29 and a sales manager and I have meetings every day with clients. It was knocking my confidence and I was crying most nights because I hated the way I looked and I hated clients seeing me like that. I couldn’t wear makeup because it would make it worse. I was at the end of my tether and researching more skin care products that didn’t have any type of steroid or chemical in it, then i come across Loveskin. I loved everything that I read and thought I would give it a try because I felt like it couldnt get any worse. So I ordered the $11 sample and you have literally changed my life, within two days…..TWO DAYS!!!!! 

My eczema is COMPLETELY gone, along with the tears. This product has changed my life not just my skin and i will never not have this in my skin care routine for the rest of my life.

Thank you so so so much for making me feel human again.
