5 tips for redness rosacea treatment
Looking for redness rosacea treatment?
You know the feeling…an awkward moment, cocktail party, exercise or even just hot, humid or cold weather lights your face up like a Christmas tree.
So what are the causes?
One is slapped cheek disease (ouch!) but if you are over primary school age you are unlikely to be suffering from this condition caused by a viral infection. Can be dangerous for the unborn in pregnant women – consult your physician.
Another is rosacea and the cause of this condition still eludes us. This condition is sometimes described as sunburn or flushing that doesn’t go away. It is characterised by redness on the face and sometimes causes thickening skin on the nose and pimples on the face. It can also affect other areas of the body.
Common causes of flushing and blushing can be acute emotion, shyness, shame, embarrassment, alcohol, particularly in those whose enzyme that assists with breakdown of alcohol is inactive, strenuous exercise, hot and cold – weather and drinks – and spicy foods.
There is no cure for flushing and blushing so the focus is on avoiding the triggers.
1. If you blush in certain social situations, try working on your confidence level. See if meditation is right for you or explore other relaxation techniques, hypnosis or regular light to moderate exercise and if something works for you, make it a habit.
2. If you find you light up like a flare when exercising, then take it down a notch. Slow and steady wins the race and remember to keep hydrated. A cool wet towel on the face or cool water in the shower may take the heat out too.
3. Try to use skincare products that include green tea, vitamin e or calendula, (marigold) compounds that may ease inflammation and may have a cooling and soothing effect on the skin.
4. If you love spicy food and can’t live without it then try replacing capsicum with a spice to eliminate it as the cause of your red glow.
5. Limit your exposure to strong sunlight and extremely hot, cold or windy conditions – a key tool in redness rosacea treatment.
