Skincare products for: POD (perioral dermatitis/facial rash around mouth)

Red spots around your mouth, nose and eyes - but they don't respond to acne treatments? Skin feeling sore and hot - but heavy creams only make it worse? Chances are it's POD.

Perioral dermatitis (POD) is a skin disorder which can visually resemble acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis and other forms of dermatitis. In most cases POD involves tiny red bumps on the lower half of the face, in the folds of the nose and around the mouth. Other symptoms may include a burning feeling around the mouth. Bumps around the mouth may also be filled with fluid or pus and may also appear around the eyes, nose, or on the forehead. Read what MD Marika Schröder has to say about POD in our blog - and check out our customers Päivi's and Johanna's skinstories about POD.

When treating symptoms of POD, opt for a gentle, oil-free cleanser (like our Gel Cleanser), a soothing oil-free serum and a light and soothing moisturiser. If the POD is very inflamed, it's best to avoid oils in any form for a few days. Avoid all kinds of exfoliants.

Our tip for dry skin: if your skin is very dry, you can try our Milk Cleanser for cleansing instead and instead of the Face Cream apply the tiniest amount of Face Oil over the Essence or the Calming Serum.
