A rosacea-proof skincare routine can help put the brakes on the flare-ups.

What is Rosacea

Rosacea (roe-ZAY-she-uh) is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness.

Rosacea can affect anyone. But it’s most common in middle-aged women who have light skin. There’s no cure for rosacea, but treatment can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.

What causes Rosacea?

Causes

The cause of rosacea is unknown, but it could be due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene.

A number of factors can trigger flare-ups, including:

  • Hot drinks and spicy foods
  • Red wine and other alcoholic beverages
  • Temperature extremes
  • Sunlight or wind
  • Emotions
  • Exercise
  • Drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications
  • Various cosmetic products

Avoid overly-drying cleansers

Harsh cleansers and scrubs will strip the skin of essential oils leading to dryness and inflammation.

The cleanser should be devoid of such rosacea irritants as alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, and eucalyptus oil.

People with rosacea tend to have more sensitive skin, so it’s important to choose the right facial products. This gentle cleanser is a good choice because it does not contain soaps or fragrances and it actually can condition the skin as it cleanses.

You may not love the scent of your coworker’s hand cream, or the perfume wafting across the aisle on the train. But for some people, fragrances like those can trigger a range of very real symptoms, according to a new Australian study, from migraines to difficulties with breathing.

Perfumes contain a mix of several ingredients that include a complex blend of natural essences as well as synthetic chemicals. The average perfume or cologne contains about 14 secret chemical ingredients that are capable of triggering mild to severe allergic reactions in fragrance-sensitive individuals.

Fragrance sensitivity can be defined as an irritation or an adverse reaction to chemicals in a perfume or other scented products such as air fresheners and cosmetics. Sensitivity to strong odors can make allergic people severely ill. People with asthma or other respiratory illness can be more susceptible to fragrance allergies compared to healthy individuals.

Some common symptoms of perfume allergy include the following:

  • mild to severe headache
  • skin irritation, itching, and rashes
  • sneezing, coughing and runny nose, also called allergic rhinitis
  • breathing difficulties, dizziness, and fatigue
  • muscle aches
  • watery, red, and itchy eyes
  • wheezing
  • inability to concentrate
  • swelling – or angioedema
  • nausea and vomiting

Application tips: 

  1. Squeeze little amount of foundation on your palm and dot your face and neck with it. In case you want to use foundation brush dip it into the squeezed amount. Now beginning from the center of your face, i.e. nose, work up to the forehead, both the cheeks, chin and your neck. Blend it well either with the fingers, sponge or brush.
  2. Do not forget to apply foundation on your neck. Applying foundation just on the face makes it stand out from the neck because of the different shades. Also dab on some to the sides of the neck.
  3. Give special attention to uneven skin tone, pimples, spots or dark circles. Build up these areas with little more foundation and blend well.
    You can remove the excess foundation with either tissue or sponge. Just dab on to the area (do not rub).
  4. Once you are done with applying foundation, set it with compact or loose translucent powder. This ensures that your foundation stays intact for a longer time.
