Listen to “Warm Weather Can be a Trigger for A Common Skin Condition HELPING PEOPLE WITH ROSACEA GET READY FOR SUMMER.” on Spreaker.
Over 16 million people in the U.S. struggle with rosacea (ro-ZAY-she-ah), a chronic and recurrent skin condition that can worsen over time.1
More than 82% of people feel their rosacea is uncontrolled, and less than 50% are satisfied with their current prescription treatments, which can lead to overuse or misuse of these products which can trigger or worsen the condition.5-8 Rosacea can be so challenging to manage that 55% of people with the skin condition and a high disease burden reported they were willing to give up one year or more of their life to cure their symptoms.9
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a new treatment that can improve the bumps and blemishes of rosacea and provides significant relief.10
Some precautions for those with rosacea include:4
✔ Protect your face from the sun by using a broad spectrum sunscreen and wearing a hat
✔ Avoid strenuous outdoor activity from 10am-2pm when sun is hottest
✔ Break up physical activity to avoid becoming overheated
✔ Stay cool by carrying cold water when outdoors in the heat
