What is the main cause of rosacea?

Rosacea can make anyone’s skin very sensitive, and due to this; many things can cause rosacea to flare up. Time spent under the sun’s glare can lead to unexpected flushing that may last for hours, or any number of skin care products may cause your face to feel stinging, burning or an itching sensation for what seems like forever.

Any of these causes are called a trigger, as they set off your rosacea.

Other common triggers that cause rosacea to flare up can be:

  • Direct sunlight
  • Hairspray (and other hair care products)
  • Heat
  • Stress
  • Alcohol
  • Spicy foods
  • Some skin products
  • Some makeup
  • Wind and cold
  • Exercise
  • Some medicine

Even though rosacea may be a minor inconvenience, it can cause immense stress. Each time your skin flushes, it can stay the red thing a little longer. Rosacea may start to appear on your skin more, in some if repeated flushing can lead to their skin staying permanently red.

Visible blood vessels may also start to appear and the skin starts to thicken.

With repeated flushing, treatment can become more difficult depending on the individual.

Figuring out what triggers set off your rosacea flare-ups can help, so you can make simple changes to reduce the flare-ups, get better results from your treatments, and prevent rosacea from worsening in the future.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin condition found in many that causes redness and visible blood vessels to be seen in your face. It can also produce small, red pus-filled bumps on your face. These signs and symptoms are from triggers which cause your rosacea to flare-up and may last for weeks to months depending on the severity of it, then go away for a while. Rosacea is commonly mistaken for acne and other skin problems or natural ruddiness.

Even though rosacea can affect anyone, it is commonly known to affect middle-aged women who have light skin. There is no cure for rosacea, however there are several treatment options available to help control and reduce the signs and symptoms of rosacea.

What happens if rosacea is left untreated?  

Rosacea is more than just a red face due to triggers causing a flare-up. If left untreated, rosacea can lead to permanent damage. Rosacea is most common in women than men and specifically women with light-skin who are middle-aged and it can be much more severe in women than men. Leaving rosacea untreated can cause significant damage, not only to the skin, but the surrounding areas like the eyes. This is why seeking out treatment for rosacea is so important, like our IPL Photofacial treatment from Reddy Aesthetics.
