Attitude can be everything. Your approach to living and dealing with your rosacea can have a huge impact on your success in treating and controlling your rosacea. The skin is affected by stimulus from the brain therefore the more stressed you become about your skin condition, the more your skin reacts by increasing the effects of your rosacea symptoms. Treating your rosacea can become to some degree a mind game. If you control your approach to the treatment and your reaction to dealing with the symptoms, you will be able to minimize the physical appearance of rosacea.
If you believe there is no cure for rosacea, no cure will ever be found to control your rosacea. On the other hand, if you allow the mind to control the body, you will find success in controlling your rosacea.
There are many things you can do to control your skin’s reaction to rosacea. Identify the triggers that stimulate your rosacea response. The most common culprits include, stress, lack of sleep, dehydration and the chemical reaction of your skin to the lotions, soaps and creams applied to it. These basic things can exact the most comprehensive results. So the best results in controlling your rosacea may come from getting back to basics – take time to relax, get at least 8 hours of sleep per day, drink 8 to 20 glasses of water a day, get rid of the specialty creams and topicals and instead use a gentle unscented cleansing bar and moisturize with a healing oil such as pure jojoba oil. Try it for 30 days and see if you can control your rosacea response.
