As April is Rosacea awareness month, I feel it’s important to shed light on and provide support for those who suffer from it.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels on the face, along with the appearance of small, red, pus-filled bumps. It can also cause a burning or stinging sensation, and in some cases, the skin can become thick and bumpy.
Rosacea is extremely common and affects millions of people worldwide. It is seen in all countries and races but is most frequently seen in people who have fair sun sensitive skin, especially those of Celtic origin.
It can be a frustrating and uncomfortable experience. People with rosacea often report feeling self-conscious about their appearance and struggle to find effective ways to manage their symptoms.
Causes of Rosacea
One of the main triggers of rosacea is sensitive skin, which means that the skin is easily irritated and prone to redness and inflammation.
People with sensitive skin are more likely to experience rosacea, and it’s important to take steps to avoid irritants and soothe the skin to prevent flare-ups.
Some common triggers of rosacea include exposure to sun, wind, or extreme temperatures, stress, alcohol consumption, and spicy foods.
How will I know if I Have Rosacea?
How to Look After Skin with Rosacea
- If you have rosacea, take care of your skin by using gentle and non-irritating products.
- Look for skincare products specifically designed for sensitive skin and avoid harsh cleansers, scrubs, and exfoliants.
- Protect your skin from the sun by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and seeking shade during peak sun hours.
- Use cool compresses on affected areas to reduce inflammation and redness.
- Using herbal extracts, that have anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness and irritation.
- Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, practicing relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation, and avoiding triggers like spicy foods and alcohol.
- Get enough sleep and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
- Work on gut health to improve symptoms and reduce flare ups
- Seek the advice of a dermatologist or skincare professional for a personalised treatment plan, which may include topical or oral medications, laser therapy, or other treatments to manage your rosacea
