More and More Clients are coming to me thinking they have acne and to their surprise it’s Rosacea Acne.

Which sometimes is fairly an easy fix for the reactive element.  My number one advice for Rosacea skin types is be GENTLE!  Listen to how your skin is responding and avoid doing the things that trigger it to react!

Of course it’s more complicated but a good place to start is to be gentle with your skin.
What is Rosacea?  Rosacea (say “roh-ZAY-sha”

Rosacea (say “roh-ZAY-sha”) is a skin disease that causes redness and pimples on your face. People with rosacea may have a flushed face and pimples or bumps on or around the cheeks, nose, mouth, and forehead.

The redness may come and go, or sometimes can last for days. If left untreated some cases of rosacea can continue to get worse. Rosacea in past is sometimes mistaken for acne. People sometimes call rosacea “adult acne” because it can cause outbreaks that look like acne, but it’s not acne.

Other problems arise when rosacea is treated as acne.  It can cause the problem to worsen. What causes rosacea ? Experts are not sure what causes rosacea. It tends to affect people who have fair skin or blush easily, and it seems to run in families. Rosacea often flares when something causes the blood vessels in the face to expand, which causes redness.

Things that cause a flare-up are called triggers. Common triggers are exercise, sun and wind exposure, hot weather, stress, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot baths.

Swings in temperature from hot to cold or cold to hot can also cause a flare-up of rosacea.
