The summer is here, which means that there’s a lot to look forward to: warm weather, cookouts, and pool parties!
However, one negative thing the summer can bring is the chance of embarrassing blushing and flushed skin. This can be more than just simple heat and blushing, though – if you flush more than most, you might have an ailment that millions of Americans suffer from.
At A New Me Wellness and Aesthetics , we know how important it is to stay on top of your skin health, which is why today we’re telling you everything you need to know about Rosacea.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin disease that affects over 14 million people in America. It usually manifests as a tendency to blush or flush more easily than others, but can quickly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead, chin, ears, chest, and back. There are also a host of other symptoms, such as visible blood vessels, acne-like breakouts, thickened or bumpy skin, and irritated, red eyes.
What Causes Rosacea Flare-Ups?
There are a few factors that make a person more likely to have Rosacea. In general, if the condition runs in your family, if you have blonde hair and blue eyes, if you have acne problems, or if you’re between 30 and 50 years old, you’re likely more susceptible to the illness. The strict causes of Rosacea and flare-ups are still being studied, but scientists believe that an overactive immune system, a bacterium known as H pylori, a protein, and a protein known as cathelicidin may all contribute.
How Can I Control My Rosacea?
Practical steps you can take to mitigate Rosacea include finding out what triggers your Rosacea and mitigating your exposure, always protecting yourself from the sun, and practicing Rosacea- friendly skin care by doing things like using gentle skin care products.
However, it’s always recommended that you see a dermatologist, both to help you understand if you have Rosacea and to help you design a treatment plan.
In conclusion, Rosacea is a very common ailment that can cause embarrassment and inconvenience for many, especially during the summer.
