Acne rosacea is a skin disease and condition whereby the blood vessels enlarge and dilate to give a flushed appearance. This state results in the redness of the skin and it can be persistent. The most common anatomic area affected is the face notably the lower half of the nose, the cheeks, the chin and the forehead.
Acne rosasea occurs most often in adults between ages 30-50 and don't normally affect teenagers to a large extent. Rosacea unlike acne is not caused by excessive sebaceous glands secretion but due to the fact that pimples can pop out when you have rosacea, this is why the term acne rosacea is given. When a person has acne rosacea, he or she does not get blackheads or whiteheads. Acne rosacea affects more women than men but the condition for men is usually more severe.
The cause of acne rosacea is still unknown although it is believed that people who blush easily are more proned to get this disease because rosacea will target more the “blush" areas. When you are emotionally affected like getting stress, anxiety, embarrassment and fear, this condition can make you blush and can trigger or worsen acne rosacea. Environmental factors like exposure to the sun, winds, humid weather can play a role too in the aggravation of acne rosacea.
Foods and drinks like alcoholic beverages, coffee, spicy foods, foods high in saturated fats and refined sugars can also worsen the condition of rosacea. Same goes for cigarettes and smoking.
