Korean Beauty For Rosacea

If You Suffer From Rosacea, You’ll Know The Ongoing Battle To Find Skincare Products That Won’t Irritate Your Skin. It Can Be Even Harder Trying To Find Products That Will Soothe And Calm The Skin

Today, we’re exploring Korean beauty for rosacea, including the best K-Beauty ingredients that work well for soothing skin

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea (pronounced “roh-ZAY-sha”) is a chronic disorder characterised by flare-ups on the skin (often of the face). Rosacea typically begins after age 30 and presents as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go.

Dealing With Rosacea

As rosacea is often highly personal, the beauty products that work for one person with rosacea may not work for another. The key is to minimise the amount of different skincare products you use on your skin. Make sure you test out any new products before applying them to your face.


Tune into the Korean Beauty Show podcast to learn more about rosacea here:



It is a good idea to “patch test” new products so that you can see if you have a reaction to it before applying it all over your face. To patch test, simply use a small amount of product on your neck. If you have any adverse reaction to it, stop using it. Instead, make a note of the ingredients in the product to help you isolate any ingredients that trigger flare-ups.

When applying your skincare products, use the least amount of friction possible. Avoid using cotton pads and instead spray or gently tap products onto the face.

Ingredients To Try

Opt for ingredients that have soothing, moisturising and skin softening properties.

Ideal Korean Beauty ingredients include green tea, snail mucin, aloe, bamboo, honey/royal jelly/propolis and centella asiatica.

Ingredients To Avoid

There are a wide range of ingredients that are known to trigger or exacerbate rosacea and redness. The National Rosacea Society recommends avoiding products containing:

1 Alcohol
2 Witch hazel
3 Fragrance
4 Menthol
5 Peppermint
6 Eucalyptus oil

    It’s also a good idea to avoid astringent products, exfoliators and other skincare products that are harsh on sensitive skin.
