Condition: Rosacea

Symptoms treatments for rosacea:  If you look like you're constantly blushing, chances are you may have a very common condition called "rosacea."

Rosacea gives the appearance of persistent "flushed" cheeks or sunburn. It usually affects the center of the face, but can also affect the chin, forehead, ears, chest, and back. Over time, the redness becomes ruddier and visible blood vessels may appear.
Rosacea is a chronic condition that can be very disruptive. An estimated 14 million Americans are affected by at least one symptom of rosacea and many more are not aware that they have the condition.

Because the cause of rosacea is not well understood, prevention of this problem is also not well understood. Rosacea may be inherited and therefore it may not be easy to prevent. However, people who have just started having rosacea, or who have a family history of rosacea, should avoid any foods, drinks, or other irritants (such as sunburn) that cause facial flushing. Frequent facial flushing may cause rosacea to appear for the first time or to worsen.

Rosacea family tree or...  Is Rosecea Inherited?
          Although no scientific research has been performed on rosacea and heredity, there is evidence that suggests rosacea may be inherited. According to the National Rosacea Society nearly 40 percent of rosacea patients surveyed said they could name a relative who had similar symptoms.
          In addition, there are strong signs that ethnicity is a factor in one's potential to develop rosacea. In a separate survey by the Society, 33 percent of respondents reported having at least one parent of Irish heritage, and 27 percent had a parent of English descent. Other ethnic groups with elevated rates of rosacea, include individuals of Scandinavian, Scottish, Welsh or eastern European descent.

Causes of Rosacea

Sometimes spicy foods, extreme temperature changes and can aggravate or trigger rosacea. The actual cause of rosacea is still not scientifically known, however, the following are theories related to rosacea:

  • The sebaceous glands have more sebum than normal, which builds up on the skin and forms a flaky film (similar to cradle cap on babies).

  • Rosacea might be related to how often and how intensely people blush. When you blush, a large amount of blood flows through vessels quickly, which causes those vessels to expand quickly to handle the flow. When this occurs, the skin’s immune system tries to control this inflammation by sending more blood supply to the area which can then cause broken blood vessels.

  • Rosacea might be related to the bacteria known as “Helicobacter Pylori.” This bacteria is known to be in the plaque residue found on teeth but also has been found in the stomach where it might be the cause of ulcers.


As the condition progresses, small pimples, which resemble acne can develop, although the actual comedones (white or blackheads) do not form. Other potential signs of rosacea are burning or stinging of the face accompanied by itching or a feeling of tightness.

Eye irritation gives the eyes the appearance of being bloodshot or watery, a condition known as ocular rosacea. Rosacea should be treated, because as it worsens, the skin may thicken and enlarge from excess tissue, most commonly on the nose. This more severe condition of rosacea is called “rhinophyma.”

EC Mode Rosacea Testimonial #1

"After using the EC Mode skin care system my skin is clearer than I can ever remember it being. I had some deep seeded blemishes that never really totally cleared up, I know of one that I had embedded in my cheek since Christmas (about six months ago), I could see a major improvement every day. If you believe, you will see what you want to see. The real results - other people see. My 25-year old niece noticed every time she saw me. She would say "Your skin looks so nice, you look younger, your skin is looking very clear and smooth." Other people noticed also with comments like: "You look well rested, you look very healthy." None of these people knew why I was looking better. I have always had a problem with fever blisters (herpes simplex) and have tried every product in the drug store, all of Grandma's remedies, health food stores and doctor prescribed medications. I have not had any more problems with fever blisters…I have had tremendous results, the program is everything you said it would be and more. Thank you!"


EC Mode Rosacea Testimonial #2

Lisa is actually in the salon and skin care business. She’s a manufacturer’s representative to salons and spas, so she’s had access to just about every product available for sale over the counter. However, nothing she tried was working on her condition, so she decided to consult with dermatologists.

“I’ve always had a little pinkness to my skin, but for the past four years, I’ve had a lot of redness, hard bumps under the first layer of skin and it just looked like I had sunburn all year around. I tried a couple of doctors and they put me on different prescriptions. I tried Metrogel®, Benzocream®, and one dermatologist wanted me to take an oral antibiotic. I even had a prescription for a steroid cream for the itching.  They said I had rosacea,” Lisa said.
There were two problems with the products they prescribed; they did not work and they actually irritated her skin. “I’ve tried everything from the basic ten dollar cream to the most expensive department store creams and everything aggravated it or made it worse.” 

Relief came unexpectedly at a seminar she attended on behalf of the salon distribution company that employed her. Lisa attended a workshop on the EC Mode® Vitamin C and E product line taught by Tom Porter.

“At that first seminar he described rosacea and asked if any of us had this condition. At the time, my face felt like it was on fire. It was like I had been in a tanning booth or something. I raised my hand and right there on the spot, Tom Porter mixed up a fresh batch of his EC Mode® Vitamin C Serum and I put that right on my face. Within five minutes, the heat was out of my face. By the end of the day, the redness was gone.”

Her daily skincare routine now involves at least two applications of the EC Mode® Vitamin C Serum and EC Mode® Hydro-Driver Moisturizer. And her rosacea is under Total Oxidation Management.

“Certain things will set rosacea off, like spicy foods. But on a daily basis, my face is not red like it was before. It’s been a year and I have not been back to any of my doctors for my skin condition.”

She also swears by the EC Mode® Silk Sunscreen too. “I love the sunscreen. It’s the best ever. I’m really sensitive to dyes, colors, but this really feels good on my skin after I use the EC Mode® Vitamin C Serum and the EC Mode®  Hydro-Driver.”

Her own experience with the product line and her skin has helped Lisa feel good about representing this product line to salons and spas in her region. “I like to sell from the heart, and when I find something that I believe in, then I can represent it. I really believe in what this company stands for.”
