Rosacea causes flushing, redness, and bumps across the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. It usually strikes after age 30 and affects more women than men. It tends to flare in response to certain triggers, like sun exposure or emotional stress
Do you suffer from really sensitive skin?
Are you prone to blushing and flushing?
Does your skin sting when you apply your moisturiser?
Have you noticed that your rosy cheeks stay rosier for longer after exercise?
Have you spots on your cheeks that just won’t go away?
You may have a condition called Rosacea
What is Rosacea?
The medical term is called “Rosacea Acne”. Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that presents itself as Redness on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. It’s very common and is often mistaken for acne. Presently there is no known cause for Rosacea but it is linked to genetic and hereditary connections. If you have a family member who has Rosacea it is likely that you will have it too. Any skin type can show signs of Rosacea but a “Diffused Redness/Dry/Sensitive” skin type will most certainly be more vulnerable to experiencing the first signs of Rosacea.
Let’s recap a little for those of you who haven’t watched my video on skin types. There are only three true skin types which are referred to as “Intrinsic Skin Type”
Diffuses Redness, Acne/ Oily, and Lipid Dry
Whatever your skin type it cannot be changed. It is the skin type we are born with and no product or treatment will change it. But “Skin Condition”…Ahhh here is where the skin lets us know in no uncertain terms how its coping with how we are taking care of it.
