Rosacea Symptoms

Rosacea often presents itself with symptoms including:

  • redness
  • flushing
  • hardening of the skin
  • spots
  • a stinging or burning sensation
  • the appearance of red broken blood vessels.

Severe symptoms might include dry, sore eyes and a thickening of the skin, particularly around the nose. Most sufferers report flare-ups, with symptoms worsening and reoccurring over time., whereby the skin becomes red for short periods of time, as well as permanent redness, burning and stinging sensations and spots. This can be triggered by a number of things including environment, hormone levels, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, diet and exercise.

Rosacea affects more women than men, typically in their 30s to 50s; however, symptoms can begin to show from your early 20s. It is primarily seen on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin, as well as the neck and chest and is often mistaken for acne, eczema or some other skin allergy. Left untreated, symptoms will worsen, so early action is advised.

Sadly, there is currently no cure, only treatment. But rosacea treatments have evolved considerably over recent years, allowing sufferers of rosacea to enjoy clearer, smoother, stress-free skin. Rosacea is a common long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. It most commonly affects fair-skinned people is estimated to affect up to one in 10 people.

Rosacea Management

It is extremely important to establish a good skincare routine that has been specifically designed for your needs. Harsh products should always be avoided and the use of an SPF (preferably factor 50) that is sensitive enough to use on your face should always be used in all weathers.

There are many skincare products specially designed to care for red, sensitive skin. These contain soothing, gentle ingredients, chosen for their non-irritant properties.

Skin Peels are a fantastic way of reducing redness gently and effectively and helping with sensitivity.
