How to ease the symptoms of rosacea

Posted on 30 Nov, 2011

Unfortunately, rosacea is a chronic skin condition, which means that it cannot be cured or prevented. It can lead to both discomfort and embarrassment, and so it is very important to understand how to manage the condition and find relief from the symptoms.

• Sunlight can make the symptoms worse, so it is a good idea to get into the habit of applying sunblock before going out.

• The skin can be very sensitive and easily damaged. Choose skincare products that have been developed for sensitive skins prone to redness, and avoid any products that could be too harsh or drying.

• Try keeping a diary in order to record the condition’s development and its reaction to certain triggers. These can include spicy foods or alcohol, extreme temperatures or exercise. Once you have identified the factors that can cause an outbreak you can take the appropriate measures to avoid them.

• Prominent thread veins can be removed using Intense Pulsed Light treatment. Thread vein removal is a highly effective way to control excessive redness as well as removing those visible veins.
