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?
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
- Drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications
- Various cosmetic products

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.
