Rosacea Skin Care: How To Get Clear Rosy Skin Without The Rosacea

Dec 22, 2007
Sometimes our skin becomes sensitive and starts to show some redness and inflammation. These often go away after awhile, but for those of us who have rosacea, the redness and inflammation can be quite stubborn and can even recur. The fact is, rosacea affects millions of people around the world, and is considered a genetic skin condition. That being said, treatment and maintenance is the key to freeing your skin from rosacea.

Treatment

Before going through any treatment, you should get a proper diagnosis first. Rosacea is often confused as acne or seborrheic dermatitis. However, it can also co-exist with these skin conditions.

Once your doctor has diagnosed you with rosacea, he or she will most likely recommend topical and/or oral antibiotics. These antibiotics concentrate more on eliminating inflammations rather than killing bacteria. This means that they can reduce the appearance of bumps, redness, and flushing associated with rosacea. The downside of these antibiotics is that they can sometimes cause serious side effects. This is why your doctor may need to monitor you during the course of your medication. The treatment is highly effective and can be stopped after a period of time, but be reminded that rosacea can recur, and so you may need to use other treatments to maintain your skin.

In some cases, enlarged blood vessels and redness become permanent and surgery may be required. Surgery includes laser surgery and electrosurgery, which both help reduce the appearance of blood vessels and eliminate tissue that has accumulated around the nose.

For those who do not like the idea of surgery and side effects from medication, there are natural alternatives available. Natural treatments for rosacea include Aloe, Burdock, Betaine hydrochoride, chamomile, Rose hips, B vitamins, Red clover, Zinc and Selenium.

Rosacea cannot be completely eliminated. However, there are treatments that aim to relieve signs and symptoms as well as maintain the health of your skin. These treatments often come as a combination of products that work together.

Skin care systems may work better than stand-alone products and can provide more benefits since they were formulated to work together. For instance, some treatment kits may also includes components that kill bacteria that cause blemishes associated with rosacea. Furthermore, the system offers collagen boosters at the same time, which prevent future flare-ups and promote faster healing of the skin. The system basically acts to cleanse, sooth, and promote proper healing; these are three important actions required to treat rosacea.

There is no known way to prevent rosacea. The key is to maintain healthy skin after treatment as well as a healthy lifestyle. Drinking alcohol, hot drinks, and spicy foods can trigger rosacea. Exposure to sunlight, stress, heat, and cold can also trigger the condition.

To maintain healthy skin, cleanse and moisturize with products that do not irritate, sting, burn, or redden the skin. Use sunscreens to protect skin from the sun, as the sun can actually worsen rosacea.
