Millions of people suffer from the skin condition known as Rosacea, which causes reddening, flushing, breakouts, and bumpiness. While the cause of Rosacea is not yet known, different options are available for managing and treating Rosacea.
Triggers can differ in individuals, and those who have Rosacea should keep a diary to identify their personal triggers. Hormones, stress, extreme temperature, alcohol, and even spicy foods are some of the potential triggers that are known to professionals.
Using gentle products, such as fragrance-free and hypoallergenic cleansers, can alleviate Rosacea’s symptoms and help reduce breakouts.
Sunscreen should be used, and non-chemical sunscreens with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide are best to protect the already-sensitive skin of the face.
Avoiding breakouts altogether can be a challenge, and in the case of inflammation, use topical vitamin C to reduce redness.
Laser and light treatment
Lasers can also be used to reduce breakouts, with the Candela V-Beam Perfecta being one of the best, according to New York plastic surgeon, Dr David M. Shafer. Intense pulsed light therapy is another similar option that can also help.
