Skin Sensitivity and Rosacea
The most annoying part about flare-ups is that even when they are gone or look better you dread that they will find a way to come back. Rosacea is a problem that affects nearly 20 million people that is far from just the blush it is mistaken as. It causes the skin to be overly sensitive and leave a red-tinted flush that remains for hours. It is a chronic type of inflammation that primarily shows on the face due to dilated capillaries that can remain red longer with every flare-up. For some, bumpy blemishes, itching, stinging and thickening of the skincare additional complications that are coupled with rosacea. While your parents genes play a strong influence, rosacea can be controlled by avoiding common triggers.
What Your Skin Routine Shouldn't Include
One of the first things most people look at changing when they are suffering from a skin issue is adjusting their skin routine. Of course, this is an excellent start, but it is important to remember your skin is extremely sensitive and the last thing you want to do is be overzealous. Certain products, especially exfoliants and astringents, will be harsh on the skin and are best avoided when you notice they are turning your face red. Abstaining for harsh sulfates and opting for gentler or natural cleansers will make difference. Exfoliants may still be used, but remember, you want to seek those that are gentle and do not irritate the skin. The same applies for body cleansers and products like lotions and perfumes containing fragrance and alcohol.
Is it Your Makeup?
We wash our face to get rid of all the grime and dirt that accumulates throughout the day. Making sure all your makeup is thoroughly removed will help. Completely changing the brand of makeup you use can also help in the event it is the makeup itself that it causing the triggers if you are allergic to it. If you suspect you are allergic, it is best to keep track of your symptoms when you wear makeup, and what happens when you do not for at least two weeks.
Don't Let Stress Get the Best of You
It is amazing -- in a not so good way -- what stress can do physically and mentally. When you are under a lot of stress your body releases chemicals as a way to help deal with the stress. These chemicals can affect your skin when there is too much, and a lack of it can to the same (when you are burned out). It is all about keeping a balance and refraining from stress.
Consider What You Are or Aren't Consuming
The body is a funny thing. What affects one person may not affect the other so it is hard to completely rely on the methods of what worked for one person. A sad, but excellent example is food. Flare ups can happen for some who consume something that activate the unwanted response, often because you are allergic to it. The opposite affect can happen as well with not eating enough of a nutrient, plummeting the immune system, which causing an immune response to occur. The only true way to determine your issue would be to test either or both out to see if food, or a lack of a certain food, is causing your problem.
