Dermatologist's tips to avoid rosacea outbreaks
There are many rosacea triggers that you can avoid to prevent outbreaks. Rosacea gets worse when your complexion is exposed increase capillary blood flow in your skin or that irritate the fragile skin barrier that is characteristic of a person prone to rosacea. This is because the two key characteristics of rosacea aren abnormal cutaneous vascular response andfilm barrier fragility.
For over 30 years I have been treating rosacea-prone individuals, and there are many factors that trigger rosacea triggers.
Their number increases in autumn and winter. Others are year-round:
- The classic trigger factors for rosacea include drinking hot drinks, eating spicy foods, staying in a hot environment (such as warming up indoors or sitting in a sauna) and drinking alcohol. Interestingly, recent scientific research has shown that drinking caffeinated coffee is somewhat beneficial for rosacea, while other hot and / or caffeine beverages are not. Caffeinated foods such as chocolate are also not helpful.
- In many cases of rosacea, there is a similarity in which the effect causing redness of the skin causes rosacea. The term for this is vasodilation; when the capillary network of the skin expands, rosacea occurs. Alcohol, spicy foods, exposure to hot environments and physical exertion – all this causes vasodilation of the skin. Menopause is associated with worsening rosacea, and anyone who has gone through it knows that the tides are associated with blood flow and vasodilation.
- Extreme weather conditions such as strong wind and cold, will cause rosacea. The sun and humidity aggravate rosacea. Heat causes dilation of blood vessels. Wind and cold can also, but they cause additional skin irritation, damaging the fragile, rosacea skin barrier.
- Tough skin care products will cause rosacea through irritation of the fragile skin barrier of rosacea. Products such as alpha-hydroxy acids, retinoids, alcohol, acid peels and other irritants easily penetrate the complexion and are irritating. It causes rosacea.
In addition to trying to avoid the trigger factors of rosacea, you can maintain your fragile skin barrier with a skin care procedure that helps the healing of rosacea.
This means using products that restore the skin barrier and fight inflammation. In my practice, my patients with rosacea have seen the right foods to help reduce their tendency to redness and tingling.
The exact skin care regimen varies depending on your skin type, so I created the Rosacea skin care kit, which gives you a choice of product options.
You can customize your skin treatment for rosacea according to the unique needs of your face. Add all new products or just a few that match what you already use and that work well for you. My patients combine their prescription drugs for treating rosacea with products from my kit for personalized results that match their specific needs.
Rosacea affects people differently. With a wealth of experience in treating patients, I developed a Rosacea skin care kit that will help you avoid triggers and make your skin healthier.
