Too much workload can also trigger some stress in a person that it can cause a redness breakout. For many this condition is one which can be very stressful and actually contribute to worsening conditions.

Another source of stress is extreme temperatures – it could either be too cold or too hot for your skin. Most rosacea sufferers can tell you that they often experience breakouts when there are extreme temperatures or when there is a sudden change in temperature just like when you suddenly go out into extremely chilly temperatures outside of your house. Such temperatures can cause the veins in your face to expand or for blood to suddenly rush to your face which can trigger a skin breakout leaving you looking flushed for days and even weeks.

Lastly, some types of foods may also be rosacea triggers. More specifically, those which contain caffeine, alcohol, or extreme spiciness are the most common triggers of this ailment. Eating foods that contain a high content of these ingredients can definitely cause you to experience the effects of rosacea such as an itchy or burning sensation on your skin and flushing. To avoid this, you need to stay away from any of the said foods either permanently or to take them only in small doses.
