The sun’s rays can be punishing for any skin type, but they’re especially unkind to those with conditions like rosacea. Exposure to UV light causes inflammation, and that in turn makes you more susceptible to flushing.
Rosacea is a common but often poorly understood skin condition, which can really affect your confidence. Symptoms often begin with a mild flushing in the cheeks, but can lead to persistent, long-term facial redness and an uncomfortable, itchy rash.
It most often affects those who are between 30 and 50 years old, fair skinned, blonde, and blue eyed, and there could also be a genetic component that makes it more likely to occur in some people. It is not typically due to skin colour, but it can occur. It’s more common for women to have rosacea than men, but women are less likely to have severe rosacea.
If you’re suffering from rosacea, you’re not alone. Research that up to one in 10 people may have it and, luckily, there are plenty of treatment options available.
The Best Treatments For Rosacea
Sunlight can aggravate rosacea so ensure you use a good 50+ Sunscreen. Actinica is highly recommended.
