A red and sometimes acne-like rash, often worse on the nose, chin and cheeks


What is it?

Rosacea is a common and chronic skin condition that mainly affects the face, causing redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes small, red, pus-filled bumps. It often develops slowly and can persist for years, and its severity can vary greatly from person to person. It is thought that 1 in 10 people will develop rosacea in their lifetime. It can affect both men and women but is more common in females. While the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, it is thought to be related to genetics, environmental triggers, and certain medical conditions. Rosacea can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition, but it is manageable with a combination of medical treatments, lifestyle modifications, and avoidance of triggers.

What Causes it?

Rosacea is a skin condition that is not fully understood, although it is believed to be caused by an overactive immune response. It is often seen to run in families and is not related to hygiene nor contagious. The most common symptoms of rosacea are redness and blushing across the face, burning or stinging when using water or products, dryness, swelling (especially around the eyes), and tiny pimples filled with a yellow liquid. Although the actual cause of rosacea is unknown, identifying and avoiding triggers can help to manage symptoms. Common triggers of rosacea include alcohol, caffeine, dairy, aerobic exercise, spicy food, sun exposure, hair spray, and hormonal changes.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

While there is no known cure for rosacea, managing its symptoms is key to keeping the condition under control. There are several things you can do to help manage rosacea, such as avoiding overstimulating the skin as this can lead to flare-ups. Starting a skin diary and tracking everything you eat and do on a daily basis for a few months can also help you identify patterns that trigger rosacea. A well-prescribed anti-inflammatory skincare routine, gradually introduced into your daily regimen, can help keep the skin calm and reduce redness. With proper management and care, those with rosacea can minimise symptoms and achieve healthier, clearer skin.
