The Health Library of NYDaily News shares very a very important tip to reduce rosacea symptoms: identify your triggers.
There is no cure for rosacea, but you can take steps to control your symptoms. Environmental factors can exacerbate rosacea, so the first step in managing rosacea is to identify your personal triggers.
Common triggers include:
-Certain foods and beverages, such as spicy meals, alcohol, hot drinks and caffeinated beverages
-Strong emotional reactions like stress, anger and embarrassment
-Medications that dilate blood vessels.
Knowing this, and practicing the following lifestyle habits may help ease your symptoms:
-Protect your face from the sun by using a sunscreen of SPF15 or higher.
-Avoid extremes of temperature—for example, exercise in a cool room and wear a mask or scarf on your face in cold weather.
-Avoid the foods, drinks and medications that trigger your symptoms and learn stress relaxation techniques.
-Consider these other helpful actions as well:
-Wash your face often, but gently. Rubbing, scrubbing or massaging the face can trigger a flare up.
-Be vigilant about cleansers and other products you apply to your skin. Read labels and avoid facial products with -alcohol. Look for products labeled “noncomedeginic”—these clog pores less than most products.
-If you are experiencing menopause, talk to your doctor about symptom control.
Recognizing and avoiding rosacea triggers and making other lifestyle changes can help you manage your symptoms. However, most people benefit from medications as well.
