Suggestions to help prevent ruddy skin

(HealthDay News) -- Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by persistent flushing and redness of the face, head and neck.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests how to help manage rosacea's symptoms:

  • Protect skin from the sun with clothing and sunscreen.
  • Stay away from foods and beverages that trigger your rosacea symptoms, such as hot beverages, caffeine and spicy meals.
  • Cover skin with a soft scarf in cold weather, and avoid overheating in hot weather.
  • Don't aggravate skin irritation by rubbing or scrubbing.
  • Avoid skin care products that have irritating ingredients such as alcohol, and don't use too many of these products altogether.
