Couperose, more and more people suffer from it. The condition can be classified as a sensitive skin. Environmental influences, stress and an unhealthy lifestyle all have an impact on the skin.

But, even if you’re living as healthily as possible, couperose is still something that can happen to you. Luckily, we can help you reduce couperose and possibly even make it disappear completely.
Curious as to what we can do for you?
What is couperose?
Couperose is a skin condition that is paired with red, star-shaped spots or lines on the cheeks, the forehead, the nose or the chin. It is harmless, but not very pretty and it is something a lot of people suffer from. Couperose and rosacea are often mentioned in the same breath, however they are two different skin conditions which both frequently occur.
The difference between couperose and rosacea
Couperose can be identified by visible red lines on the side of the nose, cheeks, the forehead or the chin. The face has a red glow, due to the veins being visible. The condition is often accompanied by flaming redness. This means that some times the skin is very red, and at other times it’s very calm. Couperose is the result of an increase in small blood vessels in the face, which become immediately visible. Why this increase occurs is still unknown.
Couperose is often paired with rosacea.
Rosacea is a skin condition, whereby it looks as if the skin has acne. The pimples and bumps that appear on certain places on the skin can itch badly. Medical science sadly does not know yet what the cause is for rosacea. It is known however that rosacea is a chronic condition; you can not be cured from it. The good news is that there are methods to control the skin condition. With these methods, rosacea can be kept in an inactive state. In other words: you have it, but you can hardly see it, or not at all. Because you are not the only one with this skin condition, I’d like to give you a number of tips to try and maintain the manifestation of both couperose and rosacea in a natural way.
Rosacea is not acne
The big difference between rosacea and acne is that there are no blackheads and so you can’t remove these by hand. Removing acne by yourself is a bad idea to begin with. If you suffer from acne, please make an appointment with us and we will help you professionally.
The following factors worsen both rosacea and couperose. So try to avoid the following as much as you can:
- Excessive exposure to sunlight
- Heat, such as hot tubs, sauna or a steam room
- Processed foods
- Temperature changes
Especially in spring and autumn there are a lot of changes in temperature. Inside it’s nice and warm, but it’s much colder outside. Your body has to process this. For the skin, this sudden change is not optimal. Especially in people with rosacea, this can trigger the skin, causing rosacea to worsen.
Why don’t you take a look at the ingredients of your favorite makeup? Most products contain perfumes, fragrances and other aggressive chemicals. Especially a sensitive skin will benefit from mineral makeup. Mineral makeup is also suitable for all types of skin, does not contain any harmful substances and allows the skin to breathe.
- Dairy is a culprit!
According to recent research conducted by American scientists, it is clear that dairy products worsen rosacea. Not only milk, but also cottage cheese, ice cream, yogurt and cheese are better avoided. Try not having any dairy for a week and see how it benefits your skin.
- Hot and cold water
Don’t wash your face with really hot or really cold water. This causes narrowing and widening of the veins, causing the flaming redness to occur (flushing).
Make sure your skin stays hydrated. Drink a lot of water and protect your skin from drying out. A dry skin is more easily irritated, giving rosacea the chance to manifest itself more easily. A dry skin also itches more easily, which leads to scratching and eventually scarring.
