Larger Blood Vessels
When this occurs, the skin becomes more inflamed and subsequently more sensitive to changes in climate and UV rays.
Lower Levels Of Good Fats
When the body suffers from a fatty acid deficiency the skins immune system breaks down. On top of this the natural skin barrier breaks down leading to more infections and break outs. To fight this, it is important to have a good core diet which should include foods like oily fish and seeds.
Poor Levels Of Vitamins
When the body is naturally low on vitamins A&C the skin becomes weaker. The blood vessels also become much more sensitive to light and so when they are exposed to UV rays they are much more reactant – leading to greater problems.
Unfortunately, there is a belief that Rosacea is hereditary as 40% of people with Rosacea say that they have a relative that also has it.
Microscopic Dermodex Mites
These small mites are tiny insects that live around the follicle and unfortunately cause inflammation. This can then contribute to Rosacea appearing and increasing.
Unfortunately, what we eat and drink can also cause Rosacea. When this is combined with the environment we live in and any stresses that crop up during our daily lives, Rosacea can crop up on people. There is no way of removing all stress and bad food from our daily lives. However, what we can do is try to limit these factors by writing a food diary. This can then help you work out any foods that cause flare ups.
