What “Triggers” Rosacea?

Rosacea is often characterized by a facial redness, but this skin condition can also progress to raised bumps and enlarged blood vessels.

There are four identified rosacea subtypes: Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, Papulopustular rosacea, Phymatous rosacea, Phymatous rosacea and Ocular rosacea. To read more information on these specific skin conditions see our article http://skinhealthhub.com/skin-conditions/what-is-rosacea/

What triggers RosaceaVarious life-style and environmental factors have been identified and are commonly referred to as ‘triggers.’

These triggers, believed to exacerbate this ‘permanent blush’ include: extremes in temperature either to the cold or heat, wind, exposure to sunlight, spicy foods and foods high in histamines.

Emotional stress or being ‘hot tempered,’ alcohol and hot beverages, taking hot baths and saunas and excessive exercise are also known Rosacea Triggers.

You may also find it difficult to use many skin, hair and beauty products.

Your skin may be over-sensitive and have a tendency to react so exfoliating your face using abrasive accessories or creams, and using skin care products containing ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, alcohol and salicylic acid, witch hazel, fragrances or any products which cause facial burning, stinging or itching should be avoided.

Although the cause of rosacea is unknown knowing what some the common triggers are and what you need to avoid stemming the occurrence of your flare-ups will go some-way in helping you manage what causes your repeated flushing reactions.
