Visitors: 295

Acne rosacea is one of the problems that young adults face nowadays. Adults at the age of 30’s to 40’s are still prone to the attack of acne. Acne at this stage is called acne rosacea, which is quite difficult to handle. However, acne rosacea only happens to the minority of adults in that stage which most of them went through the ‘acne experience’ in their teens.

Acne rosacea is difficult to be treated due to two different conditions that arise at the same time. To make things worse, when one of the conditions is treated; the medication used can cause irritation and flare-up. Area of the skins that is affected by rosacea is quite sensitive to condition that expands the pores (vasodilation) such as direct sunlight, hot temperature, hot showers, saunas, alcohol and spicy foods. In this stage, foods that provoke rosacea should be avoided ultimately to ensure the problem is not serious than before.

Vasodilation can increase the skin temperature by 0.2 degree Celsius which increases the growth of bacteria that causes acne. Propionibacterium acne or P. acnes generates an enzyme called ‘lipases’ that irritates oils that are released by oil glands under the skin. When this situation arises, our skin will be irritated, inflamed and leads to rosacea flare-up which promotes acne. By washing the face within 20 minutes after activities that causes vasidolation, chances of acne inflammation reduce to a controllable condition.

As for initial stage of rosacea flare-up, it involves inflammatory or ‘histamines’ which is produced by the skin. Symptoms that follow up are redness, puffiness and itching occasionally. Skin inflammatory or ‘cytokines’ such as interleukin-1, interleukin-6 and interferon-alpha which involves histamines if combined can cause a full-flare up. Green tea contains nutrients that can stop histamines production and inflammatory of cytokines and hereby stopping full flare up from happening.

Scientist had done some research about acne rosacea which we had a little understanding about its causes. However, they manage to link the relationship between intestinal bacteria and rosacea. This might be the key to Rosacea Acne Treatment . This theory is still not confirmed but scientists are doing rapid research on this matter. Zinc deficiency can be blamed for severe to mild acne and always linked with rosacea acne. It is advisable to take at lease 20 -25 mg of zinc or multivitamin to ensure this condition does not happen.

Adult acne or rosacea acne may one day pop out right under your nose, thus the knowledge that are gained from this article may be beneficial. Acne Rosacea is still a new phenomenon and still undergoing research to find the cause and hopefully a permanent cure.
