What is Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels. It can also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. Symptoms often come and go and can be triggered by various factors.

The exact cause of rosacea is not fully understood, but several factors are believed to contribute to its development:

1. Genetics: A family history of rosacea increases the likelihood of developing the condition.

2. Immune System: An abnormal response of the immune system may play a role.

3. Demodex Mites: These microscopic mites, which are naturally present on the skin, may trigger an inflammatory response in some people.

4. Bacteria: The presence of Helicobacter pylori bacteria in the gut might be linked to rosacea.

5. Environmental Factors: Sun exposure, extreme temperatures, wind, and humidity can exacerbate symptoms.

6. Lifestyle Factors: Alcohol, spicy foods, hot drinks, stress, and exercise can trigger flare-ups.

Treatment typically involves topical and oral medications to reduce inflammation and manage symptoms, along with lifestyle changes to avoid triggers. If you or anyone that you know suffer with Rosacea.

Schedule an appointment with a Esthetician or Dermatologist. They can recommend and tailor skincare routines specifically for your skin type and condition, which can help manage rosacea more effectively.
