4 Ways To Combat Rosacea

Before I’ve write about the tips, do you really know what is rosacea? Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne.
The rosace effect more if you are :-

1. Fair skinned
2. Age 30-50

Rosacea involves swelling of the blood vessels just under the skin and may associated with other skin or eye disorders.

The symptoms of rosacea is

1. Redness of the face
2. Blushing or flushing easily
3. A lot of spider-like blood vessels (telangiectasia) of the face
4. Red nose (called a bulbous nose)
5. Acne-like skin sores that may ooze or crust
6. Burning or stinging feeling in the face
7.Irritated, bloodshot, watery eyes

There’s tips to get rid of rosacea such as :-

1. Cool off–quick.

“Rosacea is greatly aggravated by heat,” says Richard Odom, MD, a professor of clinical dermatology at the University of California San Francisco. “Patients not only cite more frequent bouts of redness, but they also last longer.” When you feel your face heating up, grab a cold drink, suck on some ice, or apply a cold compress to your face to bring your skin’s temperature down.

2. Strengthen your sun protection.


Everybody needs to shield their skin from the sun, but skin with rosacea is extra sensitive–even the slightest unprotected sun exposure can trigger an outbreak. If you’re going to be spending time outside, wear a hat, find an umbrella, and slather on some fragrance-free SPF 30, says Dr. Odom.
3.Arm yourself with aloe

.Enlist the help of an aloe plant. Many of Dr. Odom’s patients find it beneficial to apply aloe directly from the plant (you just have to snap off a stem) to help quickly reduce inflammation by soothing and cooling the skin.
4.Track your triggers.

If you’ve sought treatment for rosacea, you’ve heard that keeping track of flare-ups can help you figure out the best treatment. The National Rosacea Society makes finding patterns easier with their Rosacea Diary Form.
