Rosacea is a chronic skin condition, most commonly affecting those with a dry or combination skin.
It tends to develop in adults between 30 to 50 years old, and will often feel much worse than it looks. Because it is commonly a facial skin condition, rosacea can have a very strong affect on a person psychologically. Though rosacea has no established cure, it is very treatable and can be managed effectively with patience.
Rosacea Is Not a Rare Condition.
It is estimated that as many as 1 in 20 people right now are affected by rosacea in North America. Women are the most susceptible to this skin condition, although men are known to exhibit severe symptoms more often. Although it is a common skin condition, it is often misdiagnosed as adult acne.
The Cause For Rosacea Remains Unknown.
Doctors are still uncertain about what exactly causes rosacea. Genetics seem to play a role, with fair skinned Northern European and Celtic backgrounds being the most susceptible, but this does not account for every case. Diet, stress, and a weakened immune system can each play an important role in the development of rosacea. The proper function of the kidneys is very important as well, as is the case with many skin conditions.
Certain Skin Care Products Can Make Rosacea Worse.
This should not be a surprise to anyone, but with the amount of chemicals, perfumes, and preservatives in modern skin care products, the resulting irritations can actually exacerbate the skin problem we are trying to treat. Products containing sulfur, as well as chemically derived sunscreens are some of the worst culprits for a backfiring rosacea treatment. All Rostoplasc products are free of these chemical irritants.
To treat rosacea, it is highly recommended that you purchase the whole package of 4 products. Although they are individual products, they work together in stages to help you manage your symptoms, and allow you to feel comfortable in your skin again.
