Flare-ups occur in cycles; they are not only unsightly and embarrassing but also frequently accompanied by itching and burning sensations. Over time, skin loses its elasticity and redness may become permanent.
Facial redness often affects people aged 30 to 60 years old. Although women struggle with facial redness more often than men, men are more susceptible to developing more unsightly redness. Between 3% and 10% of people are afflicted by varying degrees of facial redness—which is approximately two million Canadians.
What causes facial redness?
People with light skin and eyes—and who have a tendency to become red very easily—are more likely to develop facial redness. However, the causes still remain unknown. Research suggests the following:
Dry skin that is not properly hydrated
Use of body products that are either too drying, of low quality or that contain ingredients that are harmful for the skin
An imbalance of the immune system that affects the skin
Hyperactivity of the blood vessels located across the face that dilate excessively
Abnormal reactions to the sun
How can I prevent facial redness?
People with fragile should regularly moisturize their skin and protect it from harsh conditions with a special cream. Certain factors, which can aggravate rosacea flare-ups should be avoided:
Very hot meals
Extreme variations in temperature
Emu oil can help reduce facial redness for people with dry and dehydrated skin
Applying all-natural, fragrance-free moisturizing products on a daily basis is recommended. Using Emu Oil Facial Cream can help to reduce facial redness and hydrate the skin. For even better results, use the facial cream with 100% pure emu oil and Emu Oil Anti-aging Serum ; together, these products will help to reduce redness as well as the burning and itching sensations.
Once the redness has subsided, an emu oil scrub with bamboo beads will help to remove dead skin and ensure that the skin better absorbs hydrating creams and oils.
