Abstract
Facial redness is a common difficult to control cosmetic problem representing various phases of rosacea. Using anti-inflammatory/antioxidant botanicals in moisturizer formulations is a possible approach to minimizing the erythema. This research utilized a common facial cleanser, but only applied the botanically based moisturizer to one half face to properly assess efficacy. 30 female subjects Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV 30-55 years of age with mild to moderate chronic facial redness, defined as a redness score of 3-6 on a 10-point scale, were enrolled. By the end of week 4, statistically significant improvement was seen on the cleanser/mask treated side in scaling (P less than 0.001), flaking (P less than 0.001), tactile smoothness (P less than 0.001), textural smoothness (P less than 0.001), firmness (P less than 0.001), radiance (P less than 0.001), luminosity (P less than 0.001), and overall appearance (P less than 0.001). Thus, cosmetic moisturizers may be useful in reducing facial redness. J Drugs Dermatol. 2018;17(6):671-676.
