There are many common skin conditions affecting people of all ages in today’s world! Most of them are mild, mainly causing minor symptoms that are usually treatable or at least manageable, such as the case with eczema or mild acne. Amongst these common skin conditions is also Rosacea, a long term skin condition that mainly affects the facial area, such as the cheeks, causing redness to the skin. It is more prevalent in women and lighter-skinned people, but men can also develop worse symptoms. Read on to find Rosacea is how to reduce redness in your cheeks.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea occurs when the blood vessels beneath the skin dilate, and there is increased blood flow to certain areas of the skin, causing a blushing redness to appear. This is a natural consequence of the body’s inflammation cascade, and so you will notice similar effects when you have bruising or a cut. Although there is no definitive cause of Rosacea, certain factors may trigger flare-ups and worsen of the condition, such as particular foods or drinks, as well as some aerobic exercises like running.
How Do I Know if I Have Rosacea?
If you suspect you may have Rosacea, look out for redness mainly on your forehead, nose area, cheeks and chin. Your skin may also be incredibly sensitive to skincare products, and a burning or stinging sensation can be felt when using water or such products. You may also notice the appearance of small broken blood vessels or small red bumps that may sometimes be filled with a yellowish liquid. There are also other symptoms that you should look out for, including sore eyelids or crust formation around the eyelashes, dry or thickening of the skin. Most of the time, these symptoms are not something you will need to be overly concerned about and are not caused by poor hygiene. Rosacea is not contagious.
