Psychological Aspects of Rosacea

The Psychological Aspects of Rosacea is a systemic response and affects not only the face but also the entire body. The side effects of rosacea, affect our self-esteem and causes depression when we are aware of the focused viewpoint that others have upon us. The visual aspects of rosacea and how those around us perceive us based on our outward appearance can have a devastating effect on our job effectiveness to some and prospects of promotions, our relationships and interaction with others and our ability to approach new acquaintances.

Psychological stress

Psychological stress is a contributing factor that affects many rosacea patients. The greater our stress levels for whatever reason, the greater the visual aspect of our rosacea symptoms. Managing the stress begins with the basics of skin care. Our body and thus our skin look and perform best when well hydrated. The average human brain is 77 to 78% water, thus water is needed for normally functioning brain to regulate other body systems including the blood circulatory system. Our brains regulate and control all bodily function. Lack of sleep can also contribute to our stress levels. We may not be able to control stress due to environmental conditions, or political situations, but hydration and sleep are two aspects of stress that we can control which will aid significant in managing your rosacea symptoms as well as the psychological and emotional aspects of rosacea.

The Etiology or Cause of Rosacea

The etiology or cause of rosacea may not be as complex and mysterious as researchers would have us believe. The answer may be fairly simple; rosacea can be controlled by getting adequate water hydration, sleep, exercise and even good nutrition. As such it requires the motivational or a willingness to change as rosacea patients have never been successful with drug treatments from their dermatologist.
