What is Rosacea? Rosacea Flushing?
Research into the causes of rosacea flushing indicates that a person with rosacea tends to possess an increased number of blood vessels in the facial region or there is damage to their facial blood vessels.The facial vessels become swollen or inflamed resulting in vascular constriction of the facial vessels. There are a number of contributing factors which influence the facial skin causing the blood vessels to constrict and dilate.Our objective is to show you ways to treat and manage facial redness through management of vascular dilation. The natural management and control of rosacea is always the best treatment.

The body operates on an internal clock. In a 24 hour period the body experiences its lowest temperature of the day between 3 to 4 a.m. We experience our highest body temperature between 7 to 8 p.m. We have all experienced mid to late afternoon fatigue and without thinking grab an energy bar or beverage or a candy bar for a quick sugar rush. This high energy adrenaline boost can also result in an increase in facial redness, just as the afternoon fatigue can result in a stress-related flush. We can moderate our internal clock to reduce this flushing by striving to maintain a consistent pH balance and identify other flushing factors listed below.
The vascular induced flushing resulting from heavy carb and sugar spikes causes the digestive system to react to the increase in vascular dilation with its increased blood flow, visually this is seen as facial redness or a flushed appearance. Avoiding spikes from high energy burns and heavy meals through the consumption of balanced meals with small healthy snacks in between can help to regulate the sugar/carb spikes and control facial redness and flushing.
