    Rosacea is a common skin disorder that causes blushing, capillaries, red patches and acne like lesions. Rosacea prone skin also tends to be oily and sensitive, so it is easily irritated by many skincare products especially alcohol based lotions.

    Part of the treatment for rosacea is to avoid triggers which can make it worse such as:
    - very spicy food
    - hot drinks
    - alcohol
    - sitting close to an open fire
    - wind and excessive exposure to sunlight
    - hot baths, hot tubs and saunas
    - some medications
