Rosacea is a chronic  inflammation skin  disorder of excess blood characterized by congested capillaries and permanent capillary   widening or     dilation.   Rosacea may  appear as persistent redness, bumps,  pimples, tiny spider-like veins and sometimes excess tissue build up. The  most  commonly     affected  areas are located on  cheeks, nose, chin, or  forehead. Some theories   explain that it is a disorder of blood vessels, bacteria or infection of the stomach, skin mites, fungus, a malfunction of the connective tissue under the skin or even psychological factors.  Although there is no cure for Rosacea,  with proper skin care you  reduce  the appearance of the signs and symptoms.  Rosacea is also known to be   connected with and an irritated digestive system.  Consult your doctor for diagnosis and medical advice.

Sensitive Skin


Sensitive skin may have  common triggers  with chemicals and weather.  Causes for irritation could be soaps, detergents, fragrances, perfumes and  skincare products.  The appearance could be  red rashes,  bumps, blushing and flushing, or even red dilated blood vessels  called broken capillaries.  Having very dry skin can also be a cause of the sensitivity, as very dry skin doesn’t protect the nerve endings The skin can feel  itchy and tight, especially after cleansing.  Using hot water or the cold weather can make it worse.  Skin may also have problems with breakouts.   Sensitive skin is susceptible to the harmful effects of the sun.


Possible contributing factors

Free radicalsradical active oxygen  molecules are normally produced in the body.  When produced in excess, it can accelerate the skins aging process.  This contributes to unhealthy, sallow sagging, uneven color,  dehydrated, and wrinkled skin. Factors that contribute to  free radicals are: Stress, ozone in the air, auto exhaust,  cigarette smoke, radiation, sunlight, impure water, processed food, toxic metals, industrial chemicals, and both recreational & medicinal drugs.

Stress– causes hormone change in body that rapidly alters cellular malfunction in the skin. Stress makes you breathe less and burn more energy.

Sugar–   Sugar may contribute to the skin appearing less soft.

Sunlight–   A major culprit for aging skin due to UVA & UVB rays. UVA causes wrinkles, sunburn, skin cancer, loss of collagen and elastin which supports the structure of our skin, and reduces the cell’s ability to repair itself. Also causing weakening of capillaries. Even when cloudy

Environment– Smoking, alcohol, pollution all form free radicals causing an inflammatory response which weakens the healthy cell production.

Hormones– A decline of  hormone levels have a direct

 impact on the skin’s thinness and youthful appearance.

Diet– The body needs the essential vitamins, nutrients and fatty acids which most of the meals today don’t have. Excessive coffee is known to increase the stress hormone cortisol.

Health – Immune suppression; the skin relies on the body’s immunity system ability to repair itself, fight disease and bacteria.

Genetics-  Genetic predisposition is a factor, however, the skin’s appearance of aging can be diminished by speeding up the reproduction of cells.



Facials with Lymphatic Drainage skin care treatment regularly will help to flush out toxins and boost the skin’s immunity.


Water Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.


Exercise helps to eliminate toxins and circulates the blood, therefore giving you healthier skin.


Sunscreen Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection. Whether it is over cast or not. Wear full coverage hat if in direct sun from 11-4 pm.  Protective clothing and/or reapply sunscreen every  two hours is highly recommended.


 Anti-oxidants impede the free radical damage allowing the cells to form regularly. Replacing coffee with green tea will provide you anti–oxidants which boost the metabolism. Some examples of anti-oxidants are lipioic acid, Vitamin C  is also known to stimulate nerve function and the muscles to contract and tighten under the skin. Anti-oxidants  work better in combinations in combating free radical scavengers.


Vitamin A

Reprograms the cell to a healthier and more productive state.



Essential fatty acids  besides it being a great “brain food”, EFA produce  lubrication in the skin that water by itself may not  always provide.
