Socializing can be intimidating any time of year for rosacea sufferers worried about flare-ups. The fast pace of the holidays can intensify the anxiety. Here are some tips to make "good vibrations" during this festive season.
Don't minimize the importance of consistent medical therapy and lifestyle changes to avoid factors that may aggravate your individual condition. Patients who use medication as prescribed and avoid rosacea tripwires report the best success in controlling their symptoms.
Be especially watchful of seasonal pitfalls. Protect your face from wind and cold weather. Avoid alcohol and spicy food at parties. Relax and enjoy the holiday season.
Experiment with makeup. Foundations in sheer green or yellow can counter redness and hide blemishes. Try enhancing other features such as your eyes and lips.
Take pride in your overall attire and grooming. The way you dress says a lot about the way you feel.
Make eye contact when you meet or talk with others. It is a sign of confidence and interest. Also smile, it will help put people at ease
