Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects the face, generally the cheeks, nose and forehead. On average 1 in 10 people suffer from rosacea most commonly women, can be more aggressive in men and typically between the ages of 30-55. It can also have such a detrimental effect on confidence and self-esteem.

Rosacea presents itself with persistent redness and flushing, thickening of the skin, bumps and pimples and visible blood vessels.

The cause of the redness prone skin is uncertain however triggers can aggravate the skin such as stress, alcohol, spicy foods, wind, and sun exposure is one of the most popular triggers.

If the skin is sensitive and damaged, it will not optimally defend itself from common daily aggressors, and sun, wind and pollution signal an inflammatory response within the skin.

Since the skin is compromised and unable to protect itself properly, the body sends blood to the triggered area as a defense against the effect of the aggressors. By doing this it can also produce heat, redness and inflammation which can easily be detected on the skin’s surface.

If the flushing occurs over time the blood vessels under the skin will become dilated and the redness will become more permanent.

As a result, the skin will become more vulnerable to external triggers , and visible symptoms may worsen over time.
