Triggers or signs that can lead to getting rosacea

Rosacea can affect everyone differently because it is caused by different issues. 

Causes and triggers:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress overload
  • Anxiety
  • Women usually have it from 30 to 40 years
  • Food allergies
  • Mite skin infection
  • Alcohol
  • Spicy foods

Sometimes it’s more than just redness on the face from enlarged blood vessels on the skin differently than other skin conditions because some forms have pus-filled bumps.  Sometimes the condition is from chronic flushing of the face, and other more severe forms may need fungal creams or ointments to address swelling and inflammation. Many times antibiotics are needed for more severe forms of the condition.

Rosacea can be treated by a variety of different OTC creams, vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements, prescription orals and topical ointments as well as prevention tactics to help soothe the skin.  Before you start with any of these prescriptions or OTC options to rid of rosacea, try a natural, healthier approach—try our HOCl PurClarity Revitalizing Mist.

Ways to calm rosacea and reduce risk of a flare

The best way is for anyone suffering from rosacea to make sure they are able to understand what causes a flare.  This way they can avoid to prepare to help their skin before something happens. This way the flare doesn’t get extremely terrible and cause pain or other problems.

 Think about staying away from alcoholic beverages or spicy foods, do medication and light exercise, take antihistamines if needed—drink more water and protect the skin.  During a flare you may want to take vitamin C, zinc, iron, and caprylic acid. 

  • B vitamins: great for skin (especially biotin), staying away from B3 or niacinamide as it can cause flushing and make your skin red and warm to the touch

Also if you already know certain foods cause the condition—you are going to have to find a good diet plan for yourself to help ease the condition and make it more management.  While diet is important but so is excessive.  Don’t overdo certain activities or exercises. 

Reducing trigger points for rosacea is imperative to keep your skin calm and healthy.  Also, always look at the digestive function.  Is it working well?  Do you have a healthy balanced microbiome with good and bad bacteria?
