Rosacea is a skin condition that no one has ever been able to pin down the real cause of, however what I can do is tell you what can trigger it, and how to alleviate some or all of the symptoms.
It is not known what causes the abnormalities, but what we do know is, collagen damage from UVA and UVB light can lead to the blood vessels dilating , resulting in visible redness, thread-veins and inflammation. On a more personal level a major benefactor is, the more stress a Rosacea sufferer is susceptible too , the more likely he or she will experience more discomfort and more visible eruptions.
Triggers of Rosacea:
Different people will have different triggers, the list below will help give you a little guide as to what triggers your own rosacea, and how to avoid them in the future, always remember that if we keep our feelings hidden inside it will manifest itself on the outside by aggravating the Rosacea.
- stress (big factor)
- strenuous exercise
- hot baths
- cold weather
- spicy foods
- caffeine (found in tea, coffee and cola)
- dairy products
The heaven products that I would recommend to get you on the path to clear, calm skin with clarity you have strived to achieve for probably many years are listed below.
I originally made this cleanser for one of my clients when she had hormonal problems. It was supposed to be a limited edition but everyone loved it so much I had to make more, a must have cleanser for Rosacea sufferers as it is gentle, none foaming and will not dry or irritate the skin, it also has the benefits of anti-ageing and helps to balance those pesky hormones!
This treatment toner contains chamomile and azulene for their anti-allergenic properties, so it is perfect for calming and soothing the skin . It will also help to normalise and re-balance ready for the next step in your routine whilst reducing redness in the skin.
The added ingredient of Tea Tree oil in this product will help to reduce scar formation, calm Rosacea and restore balance within the skin. is a complex moisturising formula designed to inhibit the ageing process by holding water within the skin.

This little bottle of amber nectar is a must for every skin type not just Rosacea sufferers, the second it hits your skin it is soaked up like a sponge taking in water, plumping, repairing, hydrating and soothing and above all protecting.
The ultimate compliment to a fantastic skin care routine is my signature Bee Venom Mask .

I would like to share with you all one last thing….. I too have Rosacea, and I got this after having my daughter Ellajane late in life which plays havoc with your hormones, I am very careful not to let this flare up, and by sticking to a strict skin care routine and always aware not to keep my feelings hidden, you would never know it was there.
If any of you have any questions you would like to ask me personally, I am always happy to help.
