What is rosacea?
Rosacea is an uneven rash that occurs on the skin causing facial redness. It affects adult men and women. Rosacea is sometimes called ‘acne rosacea’ as spots and pustules may also occur with the condition however it differs from acne in that the skin may also feel hot and swollen and be aggravated by certain weather conditions or foods. Rosacea is usually localised to the nose and cheek area.
It is thought that overactive facial blood vessels may cause rosacea skin however the reason as to why it occurs in some people is unknown. There are several factors that may explain why redness on the face occurs. These include genetics, the environment, the contraceptive pill, hormone imbalance and vascular factors.
Symptoms of rosacea include:
A doctor usually prescribes rosacea treatments after a diagnosis is made. The standard treatment for rosacea is antibiotics combined with a topical antibiotic cream or gel.
Whilst Rosacea may not be curable, it can be treated and with the right care kept at bay, and flare up’s prevented.
Minimizing rosacea flare-ups
Rosacea skin care
For redness relief I recommend The Dermalogica UltraCalming Redness Relief, it is formulated for sensitive skin and are recommended for rosacea. This 3 in 1 product relieves and protects against inflammation caused by rosacea, provides an SPF of 20 and provides a sheer green tint that counteracts the appearance of redness on the face. This product contains no artificial fragrance or colour.
I strongly recommend ID Bare Minerals Foundation for Rosacea sufferers. It is natural, mineral based, paraben, talc and fragrance free, so it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. It also give fantastic coverage on blemishes, as well as reddened areas of the face.
