Exercise and Rosacea

Exercise and Rosacea

“I love exercising, but it seems that with Rosacea I can’t avoid flare-ups and keep fit at the same time. What should I do?”

Just because you have Rosacea, doesn’t mean you should stop having an active lifestyle. A few little adjustments to the way you keep fit can make all the difference when it comes to managing Rosacea.

Here is a little list of ways to minimize Rosacea flare-ups. We aren’t saying that you should try and follow all the points below, but where you feel you can accommodate a few of these tips, it certainly won’t do you any harm..

Train more often, for shorter periods – This is a tough one for exercise junkies. The severity of flushes can be dramatically reduced by shorting the length of exercise sessions.

Exercise when it’s a little cooler – Early in the morning, or late in the evening is best.  Try and avoid training when the weather is too hot and exercise in the shade when possible.

Don’t train as hard – Okay… If you are going to the Olympics in 2012 then this may not be an option, but just bare in mind, if you are known for pushing yourself to the max, then this may well be triggering flare-ups.

Try to keep cool when exercising – Whether it’s spraying your face with cool water, or keeping a damp towel around your neck when exercising, keeping cool makes all the difference when it comes to avoiding flushes during exercise.

Swim, swim, swim – If you want to keep cool when exercising, then there is nothing better than swimming. Its also low impact, so you are keeping fit and looking after your joints.

Wear Suncream – Exposure to sunlight can cause Rosacea to flare up. Apply suncream thirty minutes before exercising will help you protect your skin. Also try and choose a suncream that doesn’t irritate your skin.

Am I allergic to red wine?

Red Wine Rosacea

They say a glass of red wine a day is actually good for you. (Probably not one of your five-a-day but good nonetheless.) But have you ever noticed that your face also goes red, even after just one glass? Perhaps you’ve even given up red wine altogether because of your ‘allergy’.

Well you needn’t give up red wine because it isn’t the wine that is causing your skin turn a shade of Merlot.

You may not be aware but the reason for this is that you may be developing Rosacea (also known as Facial telangiectasia or Facial Thread veins.)

As we get older the facial telangiectasia worsen. Unfortunately the more facial veins one has, the greater the vasodilatating effects of ambient heat and alcohol are. It is this vasodilation that not only causes embarrassment, but also if severe enough, can be quite unpleasant and sometimes even painful.

Natura Skin Clinic has been treating Rosacea patients for many years. Together with our experience and the most up to date medical lasers, we can treat even the most severe cases of Rosacea.  Giving you long lasting results after only two to three treatments you can be enjoying your Malbec again in just a few weeks!

Treating Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea

Adult acne rosacea is a common non-contagious skin condition that affects both the skin and the eye. 

It most commonly appears across the cheeks, forehead, nose and around the eye.

Symptoms include facial redness, small pustules across problem areas, telangiectasias (face veins),and sebaceous gland hypertrophy.

Episodes of flushing are brought upon by a number of triggers including the consumption of spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, intense exercise sessions and exposure to extreme weather conditions.

How can it be treated?

A number of topical and oral antibiotics can be used to treat ocular rosacea (around the eye) and popular and pustular legions.

To treat telangiectasias, laser face vein treatment has been found to be a highly effect method.

To treat acne rosacea it is advisable to speak to your GP or a dermatologist who can advise you on the best possible course of treatment for your individual skin condition. Early diagnosis quite often leads to a much more successful results.

It is important for patients to understand all the potential rosacea triggers that can exacerbate the disease and try to make lifestyle changes where appropriate that will help minimize any worsening of their condition.
