Rosacea is a very common skin condition that results in a red face, particularly on the central face and across the cheeks, nose and forehead. Other common symptoms of rosacea include visible blood vessels and acne-like breakouts.
There is no cure for rosacea — it is all about managing the symptoms. There are certain triggers that can cause rosacea to flare. Some of these triggers include certain activities (exercise and saunas), weather conditions (hot and cold weather), emotions (stress and anxiety) as well as a certain skin products, medications and health conditions. Diet also plays an important role in the management of rosacea, with many different foods and drinks known to be common triggers.
Note that not everyone has the same triggers, but taking steps to avoid them where appropriate (the exception being exercise), plays an important role in managing rosacea.
