Rummies are considered synonymous with health. Well, unless they accompany you all day and are criss-crossed with visible blood vessels. Or sprinkled with red papules and pimples.

Rasal acne is the bane of adults. It most commonly affects fair-skinned people between the ages of 35 and 50. In addition to the red areas on the face, this ailment often brings with it additional attractions: dilated blood vessels, pimples, papules and even infiltrations and thickening of the epidermis. Fortunately, rosacea can be effectively treated.

What is rosacea?

.

Rosacea (Latin) acne rosacea) is a chronic facial skin condition that is increasingly recognised as an autoimmune disease. It is characterised by recurrent facial erythema, often accompanied by papules and pustules and so-called  spider veins, or dilated blood vessels. The most common areas of erythema include the cheeks, nose, chin and foreheadand.

According to estimates, rosacea can affect between 2% and as much as 22% of the global population, with the prevalence in Europe described (depending on the source) as 10-20% . People with a fair complexion (skin phototypes I and II), as well as light eyes and hair  are more predisposed to the disease.

What does rosacea look like?

.

Rosaceous acne looks like either red patches or severe flushing. Depending on its variety, the spots may be accompanied by dilated capillaries, arranged in characteristic purple spider veins, or red papules and pustules. In its advanced stage, the skin surface may resemble a heavily reddened orange peel in appearance.

.
Unmedicated rosacea can lead to hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands ending in abnormal tissue growth in the form of tumours - rhinophyma, or cauliflower nose.

Types of rosacea

.

Rosaceous acne can be divided according to the accompanying skin changes. There are formsand:

  • Rumoral with dilated capillaries (telangiectasias) - this is most common in the early stages of the disease and affects people with vascular skin.
  • Pustular-papular - which, as the name suggests, is accompanied by pimples and red papules.
  • Narrow - characteristic of older people. The skin then becomes thickened and flecked in certain parts of the face.
  • Granulomatous - the face shows granulomas, which are accumulations of cells of the immune system.
.

Interesting fact

.

There is also a form of rosacea that affects... the eyes (sic!). It manifests as chronic redness of the eyelids and eyeballs, as well as burning and pinching. It can often be confused with, for example, dry eye syndromeand.

Causes of rosacea

.

The causes of rosacea are not fully understood. Among the most common factors, researchers listand:

  • genetic predisposition,
  • .
  • immune system disorders,
  • .
  • vascular and neurovascular hypersensitivity,
  • microbial disorders,
  • inflammatory disorders,
  • .
  • microorganisms,
  • .
  • environmental conditions (prolonged sun exposure, chronic stress),
  • .

A 2018 study suggests a link between the occurrence of rosacea and the malfunctioning thyroid gland, while other sources see the cause of the condition in Helicobacter Pylori (yes, it's that bacteria from stomach ulcers)and.

Whatever is responsible for the aetiology of the disease itself, there are certain factors that exacerbate or can trigger rosacea symptoms.

People affected acne rosacea should avoid:

  • exposure to UV radiation (especially sunlight),
  • .
  • drinking alcohol,
  • .
  • consumption of spicy and indigestible food,
  • exposure to alcohol,
  • exposure to alcohol,
  • exposure to alcohol,
  • consumption of spicy and indigestible food
  • chronic stress,
  • intensive physical exertion,
  • inflammation of the skin.
  • intensive physical exertion,
  • healthy and unhealthy conditions,
  • and
  • high temperature fluctuations,
  • high temperature fluctuations
  • aggressive skin care,
  • .
  • use of certain medications (e.g. glucocorticosteroid ointments),
  • .
  • use of saunas,
  • exposure to chlorine,
  • exposure to other substances.
  • contact with chlorinated water (e.g. in a swimming pool),
  • exposure to water
  • taking large doses of vitamin B6 and B12.

Symptoms of rosacea

.

The main and most typical symptom of rosacea is erythema, or red patches or infiltrates, appearing on the face, particularly in the central areas of the face: cheeks, nose, forehead or chin. Redness may also involve the eyelidsand.

The flare-up of the erythema (as well as the other symptoms), intensifies when an irritant is present, such as when being in high temperatures or after eating something spicy. Occasionally, rosacea can also worsen after intense exercise or other skin conditions, such as herpesand.

Other symptoms depend on the type of rosacea you are dealing with. In addition to erythema rosacea can manifestand:

.
  • dilated capillaries,
  • .
  • red papules and pustules,
  • .
  • thickening of the epidermis,
  • .
  • fibrosis of the hair follicles,
  • inflammation of the skin.
  • zarcomas,
  • .

Treatment of rosacea

.

Rosaceous acne is a chronic skin condition that requires a visit to a dermatologist. Your doctor will determine the type of acne you are dealing with and will be able to prescribe prescription medication if necessary. Skin with rosacea will also require regular check-ups at your doctor's office.

To manage the symptoms of rosacea, a holistic approach is required. There are no wonder pills that you just need to ingest to have peace of mind from this ailment. To free yourself from the annoying redness on your face, you need to review your skincare routine and cosmetics that you use on a daily basis. And that includes skincare as well as colour.

Changes will also likely need to be made to your diet and sometimes even habitsand.

Medicines and ointments for rosacea

.

Specialised creams and ointments that you can get at the pharmacy usually contain methronidazole. This is a drug that shows anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. In addition, it also helps to reduce rednessand.

Another popular ingredient is azelaic acid, used in the papulopustular form of rosacea. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effectsand.

There are also antibiotics for rosacea available in pharmacies, in the form of ointments, creams and gels - for topical application. A dermatologist may prescribe these if purulent inflammation has appeared on the face. Among the most commonly used are erythromycinand.

.

In some cases, antibiotics or other medications may need to be taken orally. Such rosacea tablets should be taken strictly as directed by a dermatologist. The most common substances used in them are antibiotics from the tetracycline group - usually this will be doxycycline.

.

Important

Antibiotics in any form (both oral and topical) should always be prescribed by a doctor. Never use them arbitrarily, even if they sometimes helped you for the same thing. Your skin condition changes, so only a specialist can determine if you still need antibiotic therapy.

Treatments for rosacea

.

Before you are tempted by the offerings of beauty clinics and cosmetic surgeries, be sure to consult a dermatologist for any treatment. Skin with rosacea is extremely sensitive and not every stage of the condition will warrant cosmetic treatments.

One of the most effective treatments for rosacea is laser. It will be particularly useful in treating erythema and dilated blood vessels (spider veins)and. The laser beam will 'close' the dilated blood vessels so they are no longer visible and the redness disappears.

You need to know, however, that despite laser correction of spider veins, these lesions may reappear when the symptoms of the condition worsen.

.
Much depends on the skin condition you are dealing with. A laser will only work on large telangiectasias, which are not always present at all. IPL is used to reduce erythema, although the skin needs to be properly prepared for this treatment, as the procedure itself emits quite high temperatures - which are not beneficial.
.

"Working with people affected by rosacea balances between maximising skin tightening and strengthening blood vessel walls, and this alone often already produces fantastic results in terms of erythema reduction.

.

The erythema itself may be due not just to the fact that the vessels are irritated or dilated, but to the insufficient thickness of the dermis and epidermis - if the skin is thin, it just sheds. So work is also being done to thicken and strengthen its layers." - adds a cosmetology specialist.

For the papulopustular and pustular forms of rosacea, the use of acids may also make sense. The best known is the peeling Azelaic acid, which is helpful in combating pustules. Other acids used by cosmetologists for rosacea complexions includeand:

  • Phytic acid - has a gentle exfoliating action and is suitable for vascular complexions.
  • Malic acid - its molecules are quite large, so it does not penetrate deeply into the layers of the skin.
  • Lactobionic acid - one of the mildest acids available in cosmetology. It can even be used with steroid treatments.
  • Shikimic acid - has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It is also able to reduce redness.

Cosmetic forums are teeming with golden advice about using acids at home. Mhm. It's just a pity they aren't accompanied by pictures of people who have suffered burns through it. Yes - chemical burns. Respect your face (you only have one) and leave the fun of acids to the experts.

.

Important

Use chemical (acid) peels only in specialist beauty salons. Never do them at home, on your own! If you suffer from rosacea, also consult your dermatologist before such a treatment.

Care for skin with rosacea

.

Skin affected by rosacea is particularly sensitive (one could even say hypersensitive) and often vascular. This is why it is best to establish your skin care rituals in consultation with a dermatologist and cosmetologist.

.

There is no one-size-fits-all skin care regime for rosacea. It will be slightly different for each type of this ailment. However, it should certainly be based on soothing the erythema and quieting the skin.

Some skincare tricksand:

may also prove helpful some skincare tricksand:

.
    .
  • Always cleanse your face in two stages (make-up removal or sebum removal + face wash with water rinse cosmetics).
  • Use a disposable paper towel for wiping (this is the most antibacterial solution).
  • .
  • Wash your face with lukewarm water.
  • .
  • Avoid mechanical scrubs and strong rubbing of the skin.
  • .
  • Use lotions and gels that do not pinch the eyes. If something is gentle enough not to irritate such a sensitive area, it shouldn't irritate your skin either.
  • If your skin is not irritated, it should be.
  • If you make up on a daily basis, take a minimum of one day break a week from make-up. Your skin will have a chance to breathe and to rest from the extra layer of cosmetics.
  • Remember to change your bedding regularly - especially your pillowcase. This is the ideal environment for any microbial growth.
  • .

Cosmetics for rosacea

.

As you already know, it is best to discuss cosmetics for rosacea skin care with a dermatologist. Your doctor can tell you the specific brand of products or active ingredients to look for in the ingredients. He or she will also tell you what to avoid.

However, you can certainly bet on pH-balanced cleansers (that won't over-dry your skin), decent sunscreens  (SPF 30 is the minimum to use in the autumn/winter season, choose SPF 50 in summer) and moisturising creamsand.

Diet for rosacea

.
.
The mainstay of the rosacea diet is its anti-inflammatory effect and keeping blood glucose stable. When putting together a menu for such a person, we introduce a diet similar to that for insulin resistance. Lots of vegetables as a base, nuts and lean dairy products all help us to lower the glycaemic load of meals.
.
Julia Skrajda.

Julia SkrajdaDietitian

.
.

Diet has a not inconsiderable impact on the condition of skin affected by rosacea. This is for two reasons.

.

Firstly, a healthy and rich in vitamins menu will positively affect the condition of blood vessels. It will help to strengthen and seal their walls, as well as ensure proper blood pressure. All this is important in preventing the appearance of erythema and spider veins. A well-nourished complexion is also simply stronger.

.

The second aspect is the so-called  triggers. These are foods, or groups of foods, that can cause rosacea symptoms to resume in remission or exacerbate existing ones.

Triggers.

According to a 2023 research review, triggers of rosacea symptoms includeand:

  • sweets (especially chocolate),
  • .
  • figs,
  • .
  • bananas,
  • .
  • plums,
  • .
  • cheese,
  • .
  • yoghurt,
  • .
  • cream,
  • .
  • soy sauce,
  • .
  • aubergine,
  • .
  • spinach,
  • .
  • wheat,
  • .
  • peas,
  • .
  • beans,
  • .
  • powerful, hot coffee and tea,
  • .
  • alcohol,
  • .
  • sweeteners added to beverages,
  • .

As you can see, some of these foods are healthy vegetables and fruits that contain plenty of valuable nutrients. Do you necessarily have to give up the whole list? No. Some of these things don't have to be bad for you at all.

For proof, let's take a look at the list.

For evidence, consider the research included in the aforementioned review, which suggests that caffeine in coffee exacerbated rosacea symptoms in some patients and reduced the risk of rosacea in othersand.

.

However, it is sensible to keep an eye on your skin condition and be aware of factors that may have caused irritation. Also avoid very hot food and spicy or heavily processed and hard to digest foods (a double no to kebabs that bake twice).

.
Products rich in saturated fatty acids are discouraged, including yellow cheese, butter, margarine, fatty meat, processed meats. The diet should be based on lean meat without skin, fish and eggs.
.
Julia Skrajda.

Julia SkrajdaDietitian

.
.

General guidelines for composing a menu for people struggling with rosacea recommend that the foods consumed should be easily digestible, alkaline and rich in fibre and vitamins C, B2 and B3and.

It is also worth seeking advice from a good nutritionist who specialises in immunodiets.

Bananas vs rosacea

.

Unfortunately, although very tasty and full of potassium, bananas are not recommended for rosacea sufferers. The fruit has a fairly high glycaemic index, a lot of sugar and, on top of that, histamine, which can aggravate erythemaand.

.
Fruits mainly recommended for rosacea are berries, raspberries, strawberries, but also citrus.

FAQ

.
. How do you treat rosacea?.

Treating rosacea starts with a visit to a dermatologist. Only your doctor can prescribe oral medications (e.g. antibiotics) or topical medications (creams, gels) to reduce redness and inflammation. Also consult your dermatologist about laser therapy or acid treatments, which can effectively reduce redness and visible blood vessels.

Avoid rosacea triggers such as high temperatures, spicy food, alcohol or stress. Use specialist cosmetics for rosacea skin. Choose products with gentle formulas, without alcohol, fragrances or other potentially irritating ingredients.

. What is rosacea?.

Rosacea, or actually acne rosacea is the Latin name for rosacea, a skin condition characterised by erythema on the face. It is also often accompanied by dilated blood vessels (spider veins) and red papules and pustules. The basis for combating this condition is dermatological treatment, proper facial care and a healthy diet.

. What vitamins for rosacea?.

For rosacea, vitamins that act antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and protective on blood vessels will help. Consume foods rich in vitamin B2B3 and C. In cosmetics also look for vitamin E and K. Inflammation and erythema can also be helped by omega-3 acids.

. Does rosacea itch?.

Rosacea can cause itching, burning and even pain, although these are not typical symptoms. If you are experiencing itching, it could be the result of another ailment or simple dryness of the skin.

When dealing with rosacea, it is important to avoid triggers that cause flare-ups, such as extreme temperatures, spicy condiments, alcohol or stress. Use mild cosmetics for facial skin care. Also always use creams with UV protection, as sunlight can worsen symptoms.

Consult a dermatologist who can recommend the appropriate treatment. It is important to understand that rosacea is a chronic skin condition that requires ongoing monitoring and treatment.

Treat your rosacea.

. Can rosacea be in the eyes?.

Yes, there is an ocular variant of rosacea. The condition is very similar to other ophthalmic ailments, such as dry eye syndrome or conjunctivitis, for example. Ocular rosacea manifests as redness of the eyelids and eyeballs, which look as if they are heavily bloodshot.

. What not to eat with rosacea?.

People suffering from rosacea are especially advised against consuming alcohol, hot, very spicy and hard to digest foods. In addition, rosacea symptoms may be aggravated by foods rich in histamine, i.e. bananas, prunes, spinach, aubergines, certain legumes and dairy products.
