Sensitivity is Only for the Fairest of Us All

“Just because our fair-skinned friends blush and flush more visibly than the rest of us, doesn’t mean they have the corner on the sensitive skin market. Fortunately or unfortunately, sensitive skin picks no favorites and even when it doesn’t show, it tells and lets us know we have it in the form of stinging, burning, itching and general discomfort.

While redness is more visible in fair skinned complexions, sensitive skin is equally prevalent in all races, genders and ethnicities. And although differences in skin tone may mask the obvious signs, the solution for all is one and the same. Look for a regimen that shields against the biological and environmental aggressors that can trigger inflammation, helps fortify skin’s natural moisture barrier, calms visible redness, and reduces irritation so that you can take comfort in having a healthy-looking complexion every day.”DermRF

WRITE YOUR SKIN A PRESCRIPTION FOR CHANGE

 


“Rosacea is characterized by intense and frequent flushing or blotch, redness, the appearance of “broken blood vessels” on the cheeks, chin, and nose, and in most cases, acne-like pimples. In fair-skinned people, particularly of Scottish, Irish, and English descent, early signs of rosacea may be the pink, flushed cheeks of youth. Eventually, rosacea progresses to a permanent redness of the mid face, cheeks, nose, and chin, along with pustules and red inflammatory acne bumps. Rosacea is often incorrectly referred to as adult acne, but it lacks the comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) of acne vulgaris.

The extract causes of rosacea are unknown, but it is clear that it runs in families. If you suffer from rosacea, you probably also have some components of sensitive skin. Additionally, we believe hormones play a strong role, as many women notice rosacea flares when they are menstruating or during the menopausal years. There are also theories that suggest an infectious component such as H. pylori bacteria or Demodex folliculorum, a certain type of microscopic mite, may play a role. This mite, a normal resident in human skin, lives in hair follicles. Two recent studies revealed that the mites were significantly more numerous in facial skin samples of people with rosacea than in people without the condition. In addition, the mite population peaked on the skin samples of these patients in the spring, when rosacea tends to flare up.

We can sometimes identify pre-rosacea in teenagers and women in there early twenties. They may come to see us with concerns about acne, but because of the “flush and blush” syndrome, we know they are experiencing the early signs of rosacea. Like acne, rosacea in not curable, so we advice our patients to educate themselves, avoid the triggers, and treat the symptoms in an effort to minimize and frequency of flare-ups.”
