One of the main difficulties when facing rosacea is that its exact cause is still unknown. Rosacea seems to develop due to the complex interactions between genetics, environmental elements, inflammatory and vascular factors.
Rosacea is almost three times more common in women than in men, with the peak age of onset being between 30 and 60. An overabundance of capillaries, or tiny blood vessels, beneath the skin in affected areas begin to break, leaking blood beneath the skin’s surface, causing a reddening of the skin. Although this condition may be hereditary, it can also be exacerbated by sun exposure, alcohol consumption, exposure to very cold or very windy weather conditions, overly hot environments, and even spicy foods.
Experts have documented that mental stress can also play a contributing role in this skin condition. Although the exact way it exacerbates the skin is not understood, stress is known to worsen rosacea symptoms. Emotional stress can lead to an increase in inflammatory mediators and greater circulation to the face, causing redness and flushing. Prolonged emotional stress can also worsen other common skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis too.
The progression of rosacea varies from one individual to another, however it often begins with episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for short periods. This is usually sporadic at first, but over time it can become a constant daily occurrence and rosacea’s other symptoms can then develop as the condition progresses.
There is no cure for rosacea but this condition can be controlled by limiting the symptoms. Look for products specifically designed for sensitive skin, as individuals with rosacea tend to have extremely sensitive skin.
