Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects between 0.5 percent to 10 percent of the population. It commonly develops during teenage years or someone’s 20s and then can become worse into the 30s or 40s. The cause of rosacea is still not entirely understood, though there are many contributing factors. Meanwhile, the belief in modern medicine is that there’s no real cure for rosacea and once affected by this condition, someone is likely to experience flare-ups on and off for the rest of his or her life.
While some people might struggle to control their rosacea symptoms from reappearing, many more are able to clear up their skin for good by making certain changes to their lifestyles — and also possibly taking medications at the same time. As you’ll learn, even if you’ve tried several lotions, creams and pills before with no success, there are many holistic steps you can take to help prevent rosacea from causing painful or embarrassing redness, breakouts and irritations.
When it comes to skin flare-ups — whether from rosacea, acne, eczema, hives or other conditions — usually there’s some specific triggers that cause skin symptoms to emerge. It isn’t always possible to completely “solve” rosacea, but following the rosacea treatment suggestions below can limit your exposure to triggers that increase inflammation. This helps naturally prevent rashes or at least stops them from becoming worse.
