    What Could be Triggering your Rosacea?

    • 2 min read

    Rosacea is a common face condition that creates redness on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Most people with rosacea will find It is quite common for pimples and blood vessels to be present on the skin, making it very uncomfortable for one.

    Unfortunately, rosacea prone skin can be quite sensitive, so everyday triggers can have a massive impact on the severity of the condition. Some common triggers to avoid include; 

    Sun Exposure

    Unfortunately, too much vitamin D for rosacea sufferers can have some damaging side effects. This is because the strong UV that the sun permits creates the production of reactive oxygen species on the skin, which initiates inflammation and then triggers an increase of rosacea molecules on the skin. This process also weakens the skin support structures such as collagen and elastin networks. 

    Emotional Stress

    People who suffer from rosacea have the daily struggle of worrying about the facial redness associated with the face condition. This itself can cause anxiety, self-esteem issues, embarrassment and fear of socialising. 

    Certain Foods

    Some studies have shown that there may be a link between rosacea and the gut and that certain foods can trigger an inflammatory response. Spicy foods are one of the main culprits for this as the main chemical found in spicy foods called ‘capsaicin’ affects the pain receptors in your skin that feel warmth. Hot drinks and alcohol also play a major factor in affecting the face. Especially red wine. 


    Making sure to exercise is definitely important when dealing with skin conditions like rosacea. However, choosing the right activities will determine a flare up or not. High intensity exercise is probably not a good idea, as the skin will heat up creating inflammation and redness on those sensitive areas. Instead, doing short bursts of exercises throughout the day such as lifting weights, aerobics or swimming. Making sure to stay hydrated at all times is a must! 

    Knowing what triggers your rosacea will greatly help in preventing a flare up. It is also important to keep on top of a good skincare routine! We always suggest our Natural Rosacea cream, which aims to eliminate redness, heat and inflammation.
