What can cause rosacea to appear on our skin?
There are several things that can cause rosacea to appear on your skin. Check out the most common below :
Exposure to UV rays aggravates the symptoms of rosacea. It is recommended to apply a sunscreen with SPF 30 or more, both in summer and winter. This will limit the amplification of the condition
Hereditary factors are good indicators of whether or not a person will be affected by rosacea in their lifetime. Family history of rosacea and skin color (lighter skinned people are more likely to be affected) should be considered
Several other factors can influence the appearance or aggravation of rosacea. These include exposure to extreme temperatures, intense physical effort, stress and the use of medication (specifically, cortisone creams obtained by prescription), as well as smoking.
Use of cosmetic products
