What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition in which redness and small, pus-filled bumps develop on the face. It is a genetic inflammatory disorder with no known cause and is more common in people with fair skin and light eyes. A hypersensitivity to the sun and other factors cause the blood vessels near the surface of the skin to expand and the rush of circulation to the area make the complexion appear red. When the body notices an injury (in this case, the rush of circulation & dilation of blood vessels) it sends more inflammatory cells to the area in an attempt to fix the problem, which exacerbates it.
What Causes Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness and pus-filled bumps on the surface of the skin. A rosy appearance might not have a specific cause, but it is thought that genetics may be the source. Individuals with fair skin and light eyes may have hypersensitivity to sun exposure, causing blood vessels to expand and blood circulation to increase (causing a red appearance).
Other factors may include extreme temperatures, spicy food, hot drinks, alcohol, sun exposure, exercise, drugs, and cosmetics. It can be tough to pinpoint the root of rosacea, but treatment can be made easy at Lifted Beauty + Wellness.
