What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that appears as reddened, flushed skin, as well as visible blood vessels and sometimes rashes and pimple-like bumps on the skin. The symptoms can vary from skin to skin, and the condition is characterized by recurring reactions, also called flare-ups. Environmental factors, emotional fluctuations, sun exposure, alcohol, and your diet are all examples of elements that can affect your rosacea and cause a reaction in the skin. The reason for rosacea is still unknown, but it’s widely believed that the condition is caused by a combination of environment and genetics. Now, that’s not to say that rosacea is always the reason behind your skin’s redness. Allergic reactions or your skin getting used to a new product or ingredient can also be common reasons for sudden flushes. What’s essential is to take note of the severity of the reactions and how often they occur.
How do I treat rosacea and redness?
As mentioned, rosacea can’t be cured. However, it’s essential to avoid triggers to prevent worsening your skin’s symptoms. If you suspect that you have rosacea, we’d always advise you to console a dermatologist to receive guidance on your specific skin type and its condition. Besides being mindful of your surroundings, stress levels, and what you’re exposing your skin to, there’re some ingredients that can help minimize flushing and irritations in the skin, which can help keep your complexion soothed to promote an even skin tone.
