Rosy glow – Treating Rosacea

This time of year can cause many to have that rosy cheeked natural glow. However, what if you seem to have that rosy glow all year round, some would love to have naturally pink cheeks, it would save a pretty penny on blusher, but for others, rosy cheeks are not all they cracked up to be.

Rosacea is a common skin complaint and is prevalent between those aged 30-60. It tends to affect more women than men and can be a rather embarrassing skin condition.

If mainly affects the facial area and those of fair skin, 1 in 10 people suffer from Rosacea.

What is Rosacea?

Despite being common, we still don’t know everything about the condition Rocacea. It can cause redness and flushing of the skin, some of the finer veins can appear and in some cases the skin can thicken around the affected area such as the nose. It can also cause an increase in spots.

What are the causes of Rosacea?

The actual cause of Rosacea is unknown, but research by the National Rosacea Society has identified the most common reasons why Rosacea may flare up – these include, direct sunlight, cold weather, alcohol, stress, hot drinks and eating spicy foods.

How to treat Rosacea.

Firstly, it is suggested to avoid all of those elements which can trigger the pink flushing, but sometimes this is easier said than done.

Luckily there are a range of treatments available which use the advanced technical power of lasers.

We’re talking about small  medical grade lasers which are concentrated on the area and basically encourage the veins and blood vessels which cause Rosacea to heal, thus reducing the signs of redness.

Some may think only the rich and famous could afford this treatment, but believe it or not, it is affordable and can reduce Rosacea, giving a brighter, less rosy appearance.

The only downside of having this treatment is that if required, you will have to go out and purchase some blusher or bronzer.

Does Dry Skin = More Wrinkles?

It may be the tales of fish wives, but for years many women have believed that oily or combination skin results in fewer wrinkle. Is this true? Do those with dry skin suffer lines from an earlier age? And what are the solutions?

Nobody really likes wrinkles and they are the sure fire way to make someone look older, despite that persons actual age.

Those who suffer with dry skin could be prone to more wrinkles as the skin is dehydrated, looses moisture and as time moves on less collagen is produced. This would make the skin sag and not plump out as it would have in our younger years. As we age, skin becomes thinner and this causes lines and furrows to appear around the eyes and forehead.

Dry skin can produce premature wrinkles on skin. Those who suffer from dry skin will tend to have wrinkles appear before those with normal or oily skin. Sun damage also increases the appearance of fine lines, as well as smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle.

What are the solutions?

We are lucky enough to live in an age full of choice and no longer do we need to put up and shut up.

From basic creams and wonder products found on the high street, to cosmetic surgery, the other end of the scale. Those products and treatments that lie in between, provide results which are natural and lasting.

Non-invasive treatment can erase fine lines and furrows, resulting in the smooth youthful complexion you desire.

Certain treatments can also re-plump your face, so if you were famous in your day for amazing cheekbones, but time has seemed to make then disappear, non-invasive treatments can re-create the shape of your face that attracted many admirers.

If you do have dry skin, the best prevention from an early age is the use of rich moisturisers both day and night.
