There are a number of skin disorders that can keep you from looking and feeling your best. While many of them require the diagnosis and treatment of a doctor, there are several fairly common skin disorders that can be partially treated or avoided with cosmetic or non-medical products. The most common skin disorders that people are seeking to treat are probably eczema and rosacea.

Common Skin Disorders

Eczema is a condition in which skin becomes overly dry and sensitive, due to allergy or environmental factors. Terrible itching accompanies the inflammation, redness, blisters, or scaly thickened skin. The worst spots for eczema are usually the hands and feet, but the face, neck, and upper chest may be affected as well.

Without treatment and care, eczema can worsen and persist for your entire life. Luckily, in addition to attempting to control environmental factors such as humidity and emotional factors such as stress, you can find skin care products to help treat eczema. High end natural moisturizing products with no perfumes or dyes, as well as gentle cleansers are crucial for controlling eczema, as well as other dry skin disorders.

Rosacea is a potentially progressive disorder that generally affects the facial skin and eyes. The defining symptoms are redness and inflammation, usually of the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead; this condition can become permanent. Rosacea sufferers should not use common acne treatments such as alpha hydroxy acids or topical retinoids; nor should they use anything containing alcohol. If you want to find out more about products which can be used if you have rosacea, as well as cosmetic products to combat the appearance of redness, the Internet is a great source of more information.
