What is rosacea and can it be treated?

Why does rosacea occur?

Rosacea is a skin disease that causes rashes and redness on the face. Some people also have problems with their eyes. It is all due to an inflammation of the skin on the face, but it is not known for sure why it occurs. It seems to be a combination of heredity and environment.

Many people find that their symptoms are made worse by weather factors such as sun, cold or wind. But also spicy food and alcohol - and even stress.

Putting energy into applying make-up with the right shades can be really demanding.
