Skin Conditions


Rosacea is a skin disorder that causes redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. Over time, the redness may become more intense. Small blood vessels may also become visible.

If rosacea is not treated, red solid bumps and pus-filled pimples can develop. The disorder can cause the nose to take on a bulbous, swollen appearance called rhinophyma. Rosacea can also affect the eyes, causing them to feel irritated and to appear bloodshot or watery.

The majority of individuals who suffer with rosacea have fair skin tones, with complexions that are prone to blushing. Although the causes of this relapsing condition are still unknown, there are consistent signs to look out for.

Symptoms of Rosacea

The most typical characteristic symptom of rosacea is redness. Flushing is most likely to affect the face, particularly the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin. In severe cases, reddening will spread outwards from the nose to each cheek, presenting as what is known as the ‘butterfly pattern’. It can also cause the eyelids to become sore and crusty. Rosacea flushing is usually accompanied by a flare up of condition-specific spots: small, sore pimples which appear on the affected areas.

Causes of Rosacea

This common skin concern causes consistent redness and pimpling of the skin, which is inherently tenacious in nature and impossibly difficult to soothe with home remedies. Generally, it exclusively affects the facial area, not spreading beyond the jawline. Often likened to a severe, prolonged breakout of adult acne, it is a lesser-known yet particularly problematic condition in its own right.

Flare-ups of rosacea are hard to conceal. Makeup only worsens the condition to create a vicious and seemingly inescapable skincare cycle.
