Rosacea, Reactive & Sensitive Skin
Little is known about the cause of Rosacea, but we do know
- Rosacea predominantly affects fair-skinned people of Celtic origin, as well as of northern & eastern European descent – ‘Celtic curse’
- Develops in adult age – typically in the 30s – 60s
- Women are affected 2-3 times more than men
- Men are affected more severely and progress to advanced stages more often than women
- The erythema of rosacea is apparently aggravated by chronic sun exposure and photo damage. Exposing facial skin to sources of radiant heat reproduces the erythema.
While there is still no known cure we do know managing symptoms is key
Try and avoid these things which cause flare ups
- Hot, spicy food
- Hot drinks
- Hot showers
- Perimenopausal link
- Benzoyl Peroxide
- Sun exposure (called a photo-aggravated disorder)
- Detergents, fragranced soaps and cleansers
- Chemical sunscreens
