Initially, we must seek what aggravates symptoms and then learn how to manage or avoid these triggers. Keeping a diary of symptoms can be very useful. The following measures have enabled many people to alleviate their symptoms:
- Avoid consuming beverages and foods that contribute to the dilation of blood vessels: coffee, alcohol, hot drinks, spicy foods and any food or drink that causes redness.
- Avoid exposure to excessive temperatures and high winds. Protect the face from cold and wind during the winter. Also avoid rapid temperature changes.
- Learn to relax to better manage stress and emotions.
- Avoid smoking cigarettes, because nicotine is damaging vascular functions.
- Avoid saunas and extended hot baths.
- Minimize exposure to the sun. If you do this, apply a good sunscreen SPF 15 or higher against both UVA and UVB.
- Unless medical advice, avoid prolonged application of cortisone on the face. Cortisone causes thinning of the skin and a dilation of blood vessels.
