Nearly 16 million Americans suffer from Rosacea. What starts as an occasional flushing of the face leads to a permanent redness, broken capillaries, pimples and bumps, and finally to a thickening of the skin around the nose. In a survey by the National Rosacea Society, 69% of sufferers admitted that their condition made them feel “Frustrated, embarrassed, and negatively affected their self-esteem.”

 

The exact cause of Rosacea is still unknown, but thankfully, science has uncovered some key factors contributing to facial redness:

 

"What Causes Rosacea?"

 

 

1. Inflammation

 

When blood flow to the areas of skin affected by Rosacea was measured, it turned out to be 3 to 4 times higher than normal. (Sibenege & Gawkrodger, 1992)

That skin ‘flush’ is an inflammatory response similar to what happens when we bruise or break a bone: the blood rushes to the damaged area to help repair the damage.

 

Here’s the problem:

 

With Rosacea there isn’t a broken bone or bruised skin. The skin gets inflamed with blood and has no problem to solve. To make matters worse, our face has a very delicate system of blood vessels unlike the rest of our body, and they don’t respond well when they’re constantly pumped full of blood, so the inflammation itself is a problem that must be resolved.

 

2. Strained Blood Vessels

 

As we age, this constant inflammation and flushing creates abnormal swelling and emptying of blood vessels, and eventually the vessels lose their elasticity. These blood vessels are like balloons being inflated and deflated over and over, stretched to their limit, getting weaker and weaker in the process until they no longer have the elasticity to resist and don’t empty as easily.

 

That means the next time they fill up with blood, they stay swollen because they can’t squeeze it all out, and eventually those blood vessels ‘pop’ and leave red spots on our skin that don’t go away.

 

 3. Microscopic Skin Mites Carrying Bacteria

 

Everyone’s skin has microscopic organisms called Demodex mites near the hair follicles, and these little mites carry bacteria that can irritate the skin. But those with Rosacea have been shown to have a significantly higher quantity of Demodex mites.

 

 

Why does this matter?

 

Because when these bacteria-carrying mites populate the skin, our skin’s natural immune response helps keep them from causing irritation, but Rosacea sufferers have so many of these mites that their skin can’t keep them in a healthy balance. The skin is damaged in the process. This is why we believe it’s crucial for a facial-redness remedy to not only repair damage, but to help rebuild healthy skin.

 

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to control bacteria even though research shows that continued use of antibiotics can be disastrous to your health.

 

For many, these three underlying contributors to facial redness can be ‘triggered’ by external and internal factors:

 

What Are Your Options for Reducing Facial-Redness?

 

Many facial-redness sufferers begin by avoiding the things that ‘trigger’ their symptoms. The National Rosacea Society surveyed 1,066 sufferers and the most common triggers were: sun exposure, emotional stress, hot weather, wind, exercise, and alcohol consumption. While avoiding triggers is a good starting point, many of these are simply unavoidable parts of everyday life.

 

The next steps are prescription antibiotics or expensive and painful laser treatments that scrape off a layer of the skin like sandpaper. This unfortunately doesn’t address the three underlying causes of facial redness, leaving us at Rosacea Remedy Research to ask the only question left:

 

Do Any Facial-Redness Remedies Actually Reduce Facial Redness?

 

With any condition, there will inevitably be a line of natural remedies created to help alleviate discomfort and build a path towards health. Judging by the number of customers these companies have year after year, the volume of verified testimonials, and the support some of their ingredients have from the medical community, they must be doing something right.

 

These natural remedies are often used in order to avoid the cost, inconvenience, and side effects of prescription drugs and invasive treatments.
