Not so rosy
Q I have rosacea on my face and it’s destroying my confidence. In cold weather, it’s twice as bad. Any advice? Rebecca, Leeds A Rosacea is a common condition, and it can be triggered by a number of things. Going from extremes of temperature can be a trigger, causing skin to be very sensitive and dry in the winter time. It’s important to make sure that skin is well moisturised. Moisturising is key when it comes to rosacea in the winter. This is not only hydrating, but also acts as a barrier to the elements. Heavier moisturisers are preferable to lighter creams that we use in the summer. Try to protect your skin from the wind and always wear sunscreen.
