What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a genetic inflammatory disorder with no known cause and is more common in people with fair skin and light eyes. A hypersensitivity to the sun and other factors cause the blood vessels near the surface of the skin to expand and the rush of circulation to the area make the complexion appear red. When the body notices an injury (in this case, the rush of circulation & dilation of blood vessels) it sends more inflammatory cells to the area in an attempt to fix the problem, which exacerbates it (similar to when microdermabrasion creates tiny injuries to the skin and the body’s response is to stimulate more collagen production to the area).
How can I avoid it?
The best way to avoid Rosacea & redness is to stay out of, or limit, your exposure to the sun. Heat is sometimes another trigger for flare-ups, so it’s important to try to keep your temperature regulated and avoid heat exposure (internally & externally), including hot showers and spicy foods.
