Our top tips for avoiding facial redness

Everyone feels more cheerful when the sky is blue, but the heat from the sun can aggrevate all sorts of skin issues.

Rosacea is a imflammatory vascular disorder that causes facial flushing and redness. Sufferers can also have pimples and little lumps, and dilated capilaries.

In this sunny weather, Rosacea may be more pronounced, so here are our top 5 tips for managing facial redness:

  1. Avoid stress as much as possible as this can be a trigger
  2. Don’t take hot baths or showers, anything more than warm is too much, and try and stay out of direct sunlight
  3. Don’t eat too much spicy food or drink alcohol as these are known triggers
  4. Protect the skin from UV rays and free radicals with a good skin care product
  5. Moisturise and nourish the skin with gentle products and avoid harsh chemicals and exfoliation like the plague!

The first three points are for you to implement, but we can certainly help you with points 4 and 5.
