ROSACEA (COUPEROSE) Effective Natural Care

Rosacea is a dermatosis: a pathological alteration of skin that affects central area of

face. Below we analyze treatments for rosacea with natural products, its causes

and traditional therapies.

 

 

WHAT IS ROSACEA or COUPEROSE

It has a prevalence ranging from 2 to 10% of people. More frequent among women,

with onset between 30 and 50 years, manifests itself with redness, dilation of face

superficial blood vessels and inflammatory acneiform lesions. It's also called

couperose and has increased cardiovascular risk profile: natural remedies for

rosacea avoid this risk and don’t cause damage to the body.

 

Erythema (redness of the skin), is the first evolutionary stage and affects the central

part of the face (cheeks, nose and forehead), but can also occur on the neck and chest.

 

A rather characteristic element is rhinophyma, a pathological alteration of nose skin,

as a result of which it assumes a globular, irregular shape and a pinkish color as in

erythema. Eye and eyelid involvement is present in 60% of patients.

 

 

WICH ARE the CAUSES of ROSACEA

The causes include exposure to ultraviolet rays, free radicals like superoxide and

hydroxyl radical, an increased reactivity of blood vessels. In addition, some

neuropeptides locally released by mast cells in an unregulated way, infectious factors

(in particular, a possible correlation with Helicobacter pylori infection has been studied).

 

 

HOW ROSACEA is CURED in the TRADITIONAL WAY

Traditional treatment uses local therapy with antibiotics, photodynamic and laser

therapy, but without great advantages.

 

 

WHAT NATURAL CURES for ROSACEA or COUPEROSE

But natural cures for rosacea are possible thanks to properties of natural products

like Calendula Officinalis and Rhodiola rosea which have anti-inflammatory, soothing,

anti-free radical action, normalizing the microcirculation.

 

There are also other organic substances, like flavoproteins, NAD and NADP, which

collaborate simply, effectively and without side effects to restore mast cell metabolism,

to regress rosacea disorders and to rebalance the immune system.
