The Causes of Couperose
Couperose occurs due to poor elasticity and poor micro-circulation. Genetics, living environments, and exposure to externalities can be attributed to the presence of the Couperose condition.
Though Couperose is typically hereditary, living in to extreme temperatures may increase the possibility of developing this condition. Consistent exposure to extreme heat, cold and severe winds gradually thins the skin.
In addition, the elderly are equally prone due to the thinning of skin over time.
What Triggers the Redness?
Couperose skin is often delicate and sensitive, making it easily aggravated and thus prone to redness. Avoid excessive use (or use altogether) of:
- Hot/cold water on the skin
- Extreme temperatures
- Sun exposure
- Hot/spicy foods
- Certain medications
- High blood pressure
- Harsh/overly strong skincare products
Anything that causes blood to rush to the face should be avoided or dealt with extreme care.
