Rosacea Information and Makeup Tips

If you have red skin that at times breaks out in pimples, you may have a skin disease known as rosacea (roh-zay-sha). It mostly affects adults, and the pimples can also look like adult acne, and may be called "adult acne".

Rosacea Facts About What Causes Rosacea
Heredity may play a part in the cause of rosacea, as well as how fair your skin is. Although a definite cause for rosacea has not been determined, there may be a connection between what causes rosacea and some other aggravating factors:

  • Spicy foods

  • Alcohol abuse may cause symptoms to worsen

  • Stress, anger, embarrassment

  • Sunlight, exercise, hot weather, hot baths and wind may also cause flare ups

  • Drugs that dilate or expand blood vessels of the face, which causes the redness.


  • What Does Rosacea Look Like?
    According to the National Rosacea Society,the following are some of signs and symptoms of rosacea:

  • Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead

  • Small visible blood vessels on the face

  • Bumps or pimples on the face

  • Watery or irritated eyes

  • Tendency to flush or blush easily


  • The signs may start just by a tendency to blush easily. As the skin disease progresses, the redness stays and focuses more on the nose and center of the face.

    With time, the small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks may swell and become more noticeable. Small, red bumps that look like acne, may appear and persist, eventually spreading across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin.

    If your eyes begin to burn and water, you may be experiencing ocular rosacea.

    Treating Rosacea
    To help reduce inflammation, you may be prescribed antibiotics, either topical or pills. For severe situations, laser surgery or electrosurgery may be advised.
