What exactly is rosacea though I hear you asking…
In layman’s terms rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition which often presents with facial redness. However many tend to mistake the redness (or bumps that can come with it), for acne. Other tell-tale signs include; dilated capillaries, congestion and pustules.
Although there’s no cure for rosacea, the great news is by following these essential tips you could avoid flair ups have your skin red-free in next to no time!
- Try to avoid alcohol
Think beauty products containing alcohol as well as alcoholic drinks we are all a little partial too from time to time! Sadly a glass of wine for instance can worsen the redness caused by rosacea. Noooo!
- Watch what you eat
Certain foods can cause your skin to flush (or otherwise heat up!) try to avoid or at least reduce eating foods including; oranges, strawberries, peanuts, cashews and caffeine. Hot and spicy curries are also a no no!
- Eat a diet rich in multi vitamins and essential fatty Acids
Vitamin A & C foods such as broccoli, sweet potato, carrots and leafy greens help strengthen the skin while foods such as salmon, almonds and eggs rich in fatty acids help produce the skin’s natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking while protecting it from environmental irritants.
- Avoid strenuous exercise.
Oh ok then you’ve twisted by arm!
- Always use sun protection.
The sun unfortunately is a trigger for rosacea.
- Avoid extreme temperatures.
So no soaking in a HOT bath (ahhhh), relaxing in a sauna or slaving over a very hot stove!
- Do not slather on your makeup.
Yes we all want to conceal our blemishes but layering makeup may only inflame your symptoms more! You want to select multi-tasking products, colour correctors and breathable foundations and powders so skin if covered but calm without being clogged! Give mineral makeup a go. You won’t regret it.
- The right skincare will be your best friend.
