Couperosa skin is dry and red especially from around cheeks, chin and forhead, sometimes even on nose and eyelids. The redness is caused by dilated blood vessels which, due to the skin's weakened elasticity, expand when there is a rush of blood to the skin but do not contract afterwards. Couperosa appears easily due to your genetical background and environment impact. Cold air (also too much sun) can trigger couperosa as well as big changes in the climate (also going to sauna). Other things that make couperosa worst are considered to be consuming too much alcohol, smoking, stress and spicy food.
You are born with the tendency to have couperosa so if your blood vessels are on the top, they don't work like they do on normal skin and your skin is thin you can't really get rid of these things. Despite of that you can still prevent the symptoms quite well when you know which things calm the skin down, what irritates it and how you can protect it. The key thing is to take care of the skin gently, avoid hars scrubs and cleansing routines.
During the winter and when the air is cold you want to protect your skin well. Use scarfs, good skincare products and make-up for this. If you go to the sauna, avoid very high heat and cover your cheeks/nose if the temperature changes. You want to eat good quality fatty acids that help to moisturize the skin internally.
When it comes to skincare routine clean the skin gently with milk-, balm-, or oily cleansers. Do not use muslin cloths, scrubs or anything that is harsh. This will irritate the skin. Use toners/hydrosols and moistuizing products that strenghten, calm and brighten the skin. For example oils rosehip or rose are great as well as for example a rose hydrosol.
