As women over 50, many of us are all too familiar with the effects of dry winter weather on our skin. We’ve all experienced that red, itchy, flaky skin that leaves us feeling like a crocodile in a winter coat! For those who suffer from rosacea, the winter season can be especially difficult. Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness, flushing and bumps on the face as well as sometimes including the neck, chest, scalp or ears. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to identify rosacea and provide solutions to help manage symptoms.
Identifying Rosacea Symptoms
Rosacea can begin during middle age and is more common in people over 50. It typically affects fair-skinned individuals but can affect any skin type. The most common symptoms include facial flushing, redness, visible blood vessels on the face, swelling and bumps or pimples that look like acne. Sometimes rosacea also includes burning sensations or extreme dryness on the face. If you experience any of these symptoms for an extended period of time—especially if they worsen over time—you should consult your doctor to rule out other underlying conditions such as allergies or eczema before seeking treatment for rosacea.
Solutions for Managing Symptoms
Once you have identified rosacea as the cause of your facial discomfort, there are several steps you can take to help manage your symptoms. First and foremost is protecting your skin from environmental factors such as cold air, windy weather and harsh sunlight which can all make rosacea worse. A good moisturizer is key to keeping your skin hydrated while also providing protection from everyday elements like dust and dirt particles in the air which could otherwise irritate already sensitive skin. Another important factor is to avoid hot beverages and spicy food which can trigger flare-ups in some people with rosacea due to their inflammatory properties. Finally, medication such as topical ointments or oral antibiotics may be prescribed by your doctor if needed depending on how severe your symptoms are.
Wintertime can be especially challenging for those who suffer from rosacea due to cold air and windy weather both of which can exacerbate symptoms even further. But with proper care and management techniques such as protecting your skin from environmental elements and avoiding certain triggers like spicy foods or hot drinks you can still enjoy beautiful healthy looking skin this season! So don’t forget to keep skincare at the top of your list of priorities this winter so that you don’t end up looking like a croc in a coat!
