Not so rosy

Pick Me Up! Special - - Yoour Health -

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.
