Skin Aging and Glycation


An anti-inflammatory is any substance which prevents inflammation, both readily visible in the form of facial redness, and only discernible by microscopic blood analysis or other tests (subclinical inflammation).

Both forms of this "redness" are clinically significant.

Chronic inflammatory processes are increasingly regarded as key factors behind skin aging and worsening rosacea.

The primary cause of subclinical skin inflammation in rosacea patients is most commonly unprotected, routine daily exposure to daylight.

Rosacea sunscreens and antioxidants, used in combination can provide close to 100% protection against UVA/UVB-induced inflammation.

Either used alone is only approximately 50% effective — therefore sunscreen use alone in no longer regarded as being an effective therapy.
