If you’ve landed on this page, this will likely mean you’re struggling with Rosacea yourself and are looking for ways to get rid of this skin concern. Rosacea can be extremely frustrating to deal with and may even make you insecure or self-conscious at times. There’s no need for that! Rosacea is a very common skin concern and luckily, there are some really great products on the market that will help you to tackle it head on. In this blog, we’ll quickly touch on the details of Rosacea, what products can help and other DIY ideas to soothe your skin.
What is Rosacea?
If you have Rosacea, please don’t feel like you’re the only one. In fact, Rosacea is a very common skin condition that causes facial flushing, irritation and pimples. Rosacea often gets mistaken for acne or eczema which is why many people get the wrong diagnosis at first. The most common symptoms of Rosacea include:
- Facial redness
For most people, Rosacea will cause facial redness. The small blood vessels on your cheeks and nose get swollen and become more visible.
- Swollen, red bumps
Another common symptom is your skin having swollen, red bumps all over. This is the reason that Rosacea often gets mistaken for acne, as it can look similar.
- Eye problems
Rosacea can also cause eye problems which makes your eyes and eyelids feel dry, irritated and swollen. This is known as Ocular Rosacea and can become very uncomfortable without using products to treat it.
- Enlarged nose
Only a small percentage of people struggle with this condition, but over time, Rosacea can cause the skin around the nose to appear bulbous. This condition is more common in men.
Does Rosacea get worse in summer?
Rosacea can worsen or improve throughout the different seasons of the year. Research by the National Rosacea Society has shown that 85% of people with Rosacea said their condition is affected by changes in seasons. Half of the people said that their symptoms get worse when the weather is getting warmer. If you have Rosacea, this means you have a 50% chance of experiencing worse symptoms throughout the summer. Luckily, you don’t have to wait around until it happens to you.
