Since the causes of rosacea are unknown, there are no precise methods to prevent its
occurrence. You can, however, take steps to prevent worsening of symptoms. It is important to first identify
factors that trigger or aggravate the symptoms to then learn how to manage or avoid them. In general, the following
measures have enabled many people to alleviate their rosacea symptoms:
eating foods and beverages that contribute to the dilation of blood vessels: coffee, alcohol, hot drinks,
spicy foods and any food or drink that causes skin redness.
exposure to excessive temperatures and violent winds.
your face from the cold during the winter; also avoid rapid temperature changes.
intense exercise; it tends to trigger rosacea symptoms;
relax to better manage stress and emotions.
smoking cigarettes, because nicotine damages the vascular functions.
saunas and extended hot baths.
sun exposure. If you do, apply a good sunscreen 15 SPF (Sun Protection Factor) or
higher against UVA and UVB in summer as in winter.
not recommended by your dermatologist, avoid prolonged application of coritsone creams or ointments
on your face. Cortisone causes thinning of the skin, and dilated blood vessels. The wise thing to do is to read carefully the ingredients in any skin
products that you intend to use. If you are not sure, talk to your dermatologist or pharmacist.
