Do I Have Rosacea?


A question we often get asked is: “I don’t have Rosacea, do I?”. And the answer sometimes comes as a surprise. We really feel Rosacea is on the increase which may be due to diet, environmental factors and alcohol consumption. Take a look in your mirror and see if our points below relate to your skin.

What is Rosacea?

It is a chronic acquired skin condition that often affects adults between 30-50 years old. It is three times more common in women who are fair skinned and find that they flush quite easily. Ever feel so frustrated with your skin that you just want to hide away? Well, now you don’t have to with the help of ZO®.

What causes it?

The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, which is why only its symptoms can currently be treated and corrected. However, there are some known triggers such as a drastic change in temperature, physical exertion, sunlight, stress, alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods.

Classic signs of Rosacea

Flushing. Many people who have rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing.
Persistent redness. Persistent facial redness may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
Bumps and pimples.
Visible blood vessels.


Other than avoiding the most common rosacea triggers. ZO® has a ground-breaking rosacea treatment called Rozatrol™. This normalising serum treats, stabilises and prevents rosacea symptoms. But it can also just be used for red or sensitised skin.

During our skin consultations we scan the skin under our specialist clinical skin scanner. This shows up Rosacea as the naked eye can be challenged to see it. As we cannot scan patients at this time, we have a series of questions during the phone consultations we now offer.

If you think you may have Rosecea please email us and we would love to help, you are not alone and we will hold your hand throughout your skincare journey.
