What is Rosacea?
According to the Mayo Clinic “Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for a period of weeks to months and then diminish for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems.”
Doctors are not sure of the cause of rosacea. Many believe it is due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Don’t worry if you or someone you know has rosacea, it is not caused by poor hygiene.
Theories suggest that increased blood flow and blood cell generation is linked to the condition, so it makes sense that temperature can be a trigger. Alcohol, spicy foods, hot beverages, saunas, and exercising can all trigger rosacea symptoms. The National Rosacea Society even lists 8% of people with rosacea being triggered by dairy products. Sun protection: This is essential 365 days a year. Sunlight is the leading cause of rosacea flare-ups, which leads to redness. Even when you treat the redness, you still have to protect your skin from the sun.
