3 beauty essentials to heal your rosacea this winter
You don’t need to put up with red blotchy skin this season
Rosacea may begin with a tendency to blush more easily, but it can slowly spread from flushes on the cheeks and nose, to colour that sweeps across the chin and forehead too. Often embarrassing and unsightly, the condition can be made worse in winter. In a survey, 72% of rosacea sufferers said cold temperatures affected flare-ups. Even if you’re not one of the millions regularly battling rosacea, at this time of year a bout of seasonal redness is an all too common affliction.
What causes rosacea and skin redness?
Redness, visible blood vessels and even little red bumps are the symptoms of rosacea, yet the actual cause remains unknown. It’s likely down to a mixture of hereditary and environmental factors. Common triggers involve extreme temperatures, sun, wind, when you drink alcohol, hot drinks, spicy foods, exercise and even your emotions. You’re also far more likely to suffer from rosacea if you’re a woman, over 30 and have fairer skin. Simple skin redness, like that caused by winter winds, on the other hand is down to the skin bringing blood closer to the surface to try and heat itself.
