Rosacea is a Chronic medical condition of the skin, effecting over 3 million Canadians. Superficial blood vessels become inflamed; opening them up to the surface of the skin resulting in a flush out or rosiness look. Rosacea cannot be cured; only treated, maintained, decreasing the severity of symptoms. The causes of Rosacea are unknown, it is suspected that it may be hereditary and effecting women more often than men.
Rosacea symptoms vary from person to person, the severity being unpredictable. The face, cheeks, nose, chin and centre of the forehead are the most common areas. People usually experience rough, dry, flaky skin, skin with redness or flushed look, broken vessels, enlarged pores and bumps in effected areas. Skin is usually sensitive and tender and may feel itchy, burning or stinging. A red enlarge nose may occur in late and more severe stages of Rosacea, a condition known as rhinopehyma. Sun exposure is the number one trigger for the red flushing response. Other common triggers of Rosacea are: extreme temperatures changes (hot or cold), stress, alcoholic and caffeinated drinks, spicy foods, chocolate and exercise. For any one with that conduction medical grade Sun Screen is essential.

A bright, radiant, even complexion is often associated with youthfulness. Hyper pigmentation, sun damage, dark spots and discolouration of the skin occurs after many years of sun exposure. Melanin is a pigment in hair and skin that is responsible for skin colour and is also the skins protective system against the sun’s UV rays. Sun triggers melanin over production to protect skin, resulting in the “tanned” look.

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, that effect teenagers and adults. Acne is not caused by dirt. It commonly occurs during puberty due to sebaceous gland activity and hormones; but it can occurs at any age. It is not dangerous. It can leave skin scars that are very hard to get rid of. Our skin is covered with pores or sebaceous glands that constantly produce and secrete oils for lubrication and protection. In the instance of acne prone skin, the sebaceous glands are over producing the oils and make some of the cells stick to our pores and block the sebum inside the follicle. The skin then over grows the pores described as double closed. This causes a buildup of oil underneath the skin, which creates a bump under the skin. When bacteria that live on the skin, get under the skin, it causes irritation and inflammation of that pore and its surrounding tissue causing a whitehead. If the air gets under the skin it oxidize the oil build up and causes it to changers it’s colour to black/dark green, which result in blackhead. The most common areas for acne are: face, neck, shoulders, chest, upper arms, back.
There are some external factors which will play a role in acne flair ups. Certain categories of food, such as, milk, cheeses, chocolate, ice cream and fruit yogurts, as well as, carbonated beverages and certain fruit juices. Stress, hormones, medication and certain cosmetics will also aggravate acne causing break outs. The residual scaring of the acne difficult to get rid off.
