Acne rosacea is a long-term, non-contagious skin disorder. Symptoms vary but heat, redness, flushing and blushing are common characteristics of skin affected by rosacea. Skin can look bumpy with tiny red spots under the skin and small broken blood vessels specifically over the cheeks.
The acne rosacea skin condition is often made worse by spicy foods, stress, hormones, sun, wind and alcohol consumption. A diagnosis from your doctor is important so that the correct rosacea treatment programme, comprising both products and lifestyle changes can be followed.
The acne rosacea skin condition should not be confused with acne as the causes and treatments are quite different.
Because skin can become extra sensitive, rosacea treatment needs to be very gentle, use cream cleansers not foaming washes, a gentle floral toner to cool and a light but cooling moisturiser to hydrate the skin.
