Couperose and rosacea

The difference between rosacea and rosacea. Two concerns, one advice.



Couperosis is the presence of dilated red and/or blue blood vessels in the face. This condition is often confused with psoriasis, but unlike psoriasis, people with rosacea do not suffer from bumps and pimples. To reduce rosacea, it is important that you avoid stimuli that can dilate the blood vessels. Therefore, protect yourself against sunlight, reduce your alcohol consumption and only use mild products that do not damage your skin barrier. Also avoid scrubs, as they are not good for your skin.


Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition that is mainly recognized by redness on the face. The most striking feature is the bright red color of the cheeks and nose, and you may also suffer from small dilated blood vessels (couperosis), bumps and pimples. This skin problem mainly occurs in middle-aged women (+ 30 years), and to a lesser extent in men. The exact cause is unknown, but the complaints can be worsened by excessive sun exposure, consuming alcohol and using non-natural care products that contain chemicals or cortisone. Self visibly reduces symptoms and redness.

Thanks to these products, my rosacea is finally under control! After years, even medication no longer helped. During a severe flare-up, I started using these products on Ellen's advice. It's now almost 3 months later and I haven't had a flare-up anymore. My skin is now calm and looks quite normal. Thank you!

Wonderfully soft cream. Smells nice and fresh. Immediately penetrates deep into the skin. My roseca is noticeably less sensitive and visible on some days.

TIP: for instant reduction of redness

Self's facial mask is packed with active ingredients in a much higher percentage than average. The cream contains tomato extract, a powerful substance with anti-inflammatory properties that soothes the skin and drastically reduces redness.

Apply a generous layer to a clean face and let the mask work for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse the skin afterwards and gently pat dry.


How do you care for this sensitive skin?



Use mild cleansers : Choose gentle, non-irritating cleansers designed specifically for sensitive skin. These products help remove dirt and makeup without irritating the skin. Avoid foaming cleansers that dry out the skin.

Moisturize regularly : Use moisturizing creams with soothing ingredients such as aloe vera or chamomile. These ingredients help soothe the skin and reduce redness.

Protect your skin from the sun : Protect your skin, both during winter and summer, with an SPF factor.

Keep your skincare routine simple : Limit the number of products you use to minimize the chance of irritation. A simple routine with cleansing, hydration, and sun protection is often sufficient. Avoid too many active ingredients that can overload the skin.


Avoid irritating ingredients : Do not use products with SE alcohol, perfume, menthol, eucalyptus, and other aggressive ingredients. These can damage the skin barrier and worsen redness. Read labels carefully to avoid irritants.

No harsh exfoliants : Avoid using coarse scrubs and strong exfoliants that can damage the skin.

Don't rub or scrub : Pat your skin dry instead of rubbing to prevent further irritation. Use a soft towel and be gentle when drying.

Avoid hot showers : Water that is too hot can irritate the skin and worsen redness. Use lukewarm water to wash your face and body. Hot showers can strip the skin's natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.
