What is Rosacea and Broken Blood Vessels?

Red skin on the face and broken capillaries can be caused by several conditions however one of the most common is rosacea. Rosacea is an extremely common but complex condition affecting many people.   

Rosacea causes a persistent red flushed face and visible blood vessels on the skin, typically on the cheeks, forehead, chin and red around nose.  While these spidery, reddish blemishes aren’t harmful, they can stand in the way of that clear, glowing complexion you’re looking for. 

What causes Rosacea and Broken Blood Vessels?

Unfortunately, the cause of rosacea is largely unknown, however it is believed it is a combination of genes, environment, demodex mites (microscopic organisms found in your sebaceous glands) and an overly active immune system.  

Lifestyle choices and habits such as the types of food choices, skincare ingredients, alcohol consumption and sun exposure all contribute to further inflammation of rosacea.  

Other factors that may worsen facial redness and broken facial blood vessels (capillaries) include trauma, older age, genetics, hormones, and harsh environmental conditions like sun and wind.
