Redness and rosacea-induced sensitivity can be particularly susceptible to changes in temperature such as humidity from heat and cold weather interspersed with blasts of hot, dry central heating that can wreak havoc on rosacea-prone skin and can cause flare-ups or itchy outbursts.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is associated to the overactivity of the skin's blood supply. As the blood flows through the capillaries, it’s more noticeable as redness that visibly presents itself across the cheeks, nose, and chin. Papules may also be present in the areas of inflammation, also known as acne-rosacea. The blood flow gives the feeling of heat, prickliness and sensitivity, while the surrounding skin becomes dryer. Although the core cause of rosacea is unknown but can be linked to various intrinsic and extrinsic factors like gut imbalances, intolerances, genetics, pollution or lifestyle factors.
Be gentle to your skin by minimising the use of physical exfoliators or rough washcloths and muslins that can damage the skin barrier, cause blemishes and weaken the capillaries by causing micro-tears and irritation. Many over-the-counter and prescription treatments and rosacea creams contain the irritant and over drying Benzoyl Peroxide. A gentle routine focused on strengthening the skin and reducing inflammation is best.
