What Causes Rosacea and How to Manage This Skin Condition?
Unveiling the Mystery of Rosacea: Causes and Solutions
Discover what Rosacea is and how to deal with this skin concern. Learn about post-traumatic rosacea and how it can result from adverse experiences with particular skin treatments. Additionally, how hormonal shifts, common in ageing women, can lead to hot flushes and redness.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is when your skin turns red and feels irritated due to various factors. One significant trigger is skin trauma, like a bad experience with a specific skin treatment. This can lead to a condition known as post-traumatic rosacea. For instance, one of my clients experienced skin damage from a treatment, which later resulted in rosacea. Think of it as your skin's way of saying, "Ouch, that hurt!"
Another factor that can cause rosacea is hormonal changes, often occurring in women as they age. These changes can make your face feel hot and appear red, especially when experiencing sudden hot flushes.
Keeping Your Skin Cool
So, how can you deal with rosacea or prevent it from worsening? The main idea is to keep your skin cool. Avoid things that make your face turn red, such as hot showers, spicy foods, and alcohol, as they can exacerbate rosacea.
Beneficial Bacteria in Skincare
Here's a helpful tip: consider using a skincare product with beneficial bacteria. My personal favourite is Germaine de Capuccini's B-Calm range. It supports the growth of good bacteria on your skin, reducing redness and heat. In this range, you'll find products like micellar water, an SOS serum, and a treatment cream. There's even a cream with a green tint that can conceal the redness caused by rosacea.
Maintaining Skin Hydration
Another important step is to prevent your skin from becoming too dry. Dry skin can make rosacea worse. Ensure that your skin's protective layer, known as the hydrolipidic film, is healthy. You can use products like our SRNS range, especially the Recovery Cream. It helps your skin heal and maintains the necessary fatty substances on your skin's surface. We've witnessed significant improvements in individuals dealing with rosacea using this cream.
