Don't feel red faced about your skin breakouts
One of the worst feelings is being flushed and red-faced, now if I've been running around on a tennis court - fair enough. But if you find yourself red faced with blushing and bumps that remind you of your teenage years, it could be an acne rosacea breakout.
There are, of course, varying degrees of acne rosacea and some can be harsh, painful and frequent enough to warrant a visit to a dermatologist. Always tell your doctor and dermatologist of any drugs you take.
Although doctors are unclear of what causes this condition, it can very often run in families. A lot can trigger a breakout, wind, extreme temperature, stress, alcohol and certain medications. For me, I have to avoid certain foods; fried eggs are a complete no-no yet scrambled or boiled have no effect. Weird? Not really, we are what we eat so it might be worth keeping a little diary to see if certain foods are aggravating your skin.
Natural therapies like aloe, tea tree oil and cucumber can at least ease the, often painful acne, and if you feel like it's beginning to harm your self esteem then seek professional advice.
We all want to feel our best and acne rosacea will certainly upset your balance.
I've been having great results with Rosewater Toning Spritz, the rose extract in it helps balance skin tone and eliminate the appearance of redness and the vitamins and antioxidants leave your skin feeling super soft and nourished.
The skin needs the cooling effect so don't be tempted to use too much moisturiser while you have a breakout - the skin needs to be toned down and sometimes moisturisers can aggravate the condition.
