What is Rosacea and why is my skin always red?
Persistent redness is often called Rosacea and it is a non-infectious skin inflammation of the face. The redness appearance is caused by leaky or enlarged capillaries that have responded to external, environment factors as well as internal factors such as diet, response to mental or physical stress, hormonal imbalance, allergies and metabolic health.
Persistent redness and/or Rosacea, generally appears in more mature age groups, often between thirty and fifty years of age and a common ‘warning’ sign is frequent flushing that can then lead to permanent redness of the affected area and thinning of the skin. If not treated this can also lead to premature ageing so the quicker you treat this condition the better.
For some people the redness can develop into small pustules on the chin, forehead, nose and cheeks. However, unlike acne vulgaris, acne rosacea does not scar and is often a response to your diet, allergens and localised heat stress from exposure to the sun even if the skin has not been burnt.
What is the best skin care for rosacea?
It is always important to have the correct diagnosis and professional advise as the wrong topical creams such as steroidal creams can do more harm when used long term due to their thinning effect on the skin. When the skin is still reactive you need a really nourishing skin care range to slowly rebuild your skin. Once you have your cleanser, we recommend these incredible products listed below.
