Do you have visible blood vessels and acne-like bumps on your face? Do you have flare-ups where you flush and turn red? Rosacea is very common, but many people struggle with finding effective ways to treat it. Rosacea episodes tend to get worse instead of better as you age, so starting treatment now can benefit you in the long term.
What is Rosacea?
The causes of rosacea remain undetermined, but heredity plays a role, and so do environmental factors like sun exposure and smoking. The most noticeable characteristic of rosacea is facial redness, often with small visible blood vessels. Many people also develop pimple-like bumps that worsen the redness. Stress, spicy food, temperature changes, and skincare products can trigger a rosacea flare, along with many other potential triggers.
