Exercise Induced Flushing and Rosacea
When we exercise, the cardiovascular system works faster and harder, we breathe harder and the result is facial flushing or facial redness from vascular dilation, and the muscles produce or give off lactic acid. To minimize the exercise related vascular response, exercise in a cool area, keep the body well hydrated before and during exercise, and to reduce the facial redness, exercise in 10 to 15 minutes sets with a short cool down period in between. Breathing is an important part of your exercise routine. Breathe deeply as your exercise, keeping the body aerobic meaning with oxygen rather than anaerobic which is a lack of oxygen or an increased amount of carbon dioxide. When the body becomes anaerobic the skin reacts in increase facial redness and rosacea flushing.
