Rosacea symptoms are often classified by redness caused by inflamed blood vessels. This redness makes the skin appear blotchy and uneven. Other symptoms include swelling and a bloated look to the face.
Rosacea is also one of the most diagnosed skin conditions because it is often confused with acne.
However, acne treatments target different needs and can even worsen rosacea.
While some causes are health-related such as genetics or stomach bacteria, other causes of rosacea are flareups that can be managed via lifestyle choices.
Though rosacea has no permanent cure, it can be mitigated or made worse by food, environment, or stress. For example, hot drinks, spicy food, and alcohol can increase rosacea symptoms. Some environmental factors to avoid are cold weather and harsh winds. If you don´t have a flare-up, day-to-day choices can help the symptoms or rosacea from returning.
Since rosacea is caused by internal inflammation or heat that appears as redness on the skin, the best way to treat it is by cooling the body inside and out. To cool on the inside, drink plenty of water and avoid hot food and drinks with stimulants such as alcohol and caffeine. Also eat cool, uncooked, and fresh food such as fruits and vegetables instead of fried food.
For external treatment, use cooling face mask, creams, or moisturizers that help soothe the skin. Professional medical skin care treatments such as the meso_peel Azelan also help because they reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. For daily use, it is recommended to use a face mask or face wash with refreshing ingredients and cooling sensation such as the Anti-stress face mask and/or Hydra Milk Cleanser or other mesoestetic products.
