Rosacea is characterized as an external response on the skin to an internal trigger.
There are many theories as to what causes Rosacea but can include factors such as diet, poor circulation, or increased mites on the skin. All can lead to chronic redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that may disappear and reappear with flare-ups. If left untreated, it can cause dilated blood vessels, excess tissue growth, and permeant redness & inflammation.
Ones with this condition are sensitive and quickly react to inferior products containing dyes, preservatives, and fragrances. To treat this skin type it’s important to focus on strengthening the skin, reducing redness & inflammation, and providing anti-bacterial support. By supporting the skin with these 4 actions, although not a cure, can help significantly reduce the look of diffused redness present on the skin.
