The rosacea can have a genetic or hormonal origin. The mite that live on the face, named Demodex, can cause rosacea if there are a large number of them. Using cosmetics that are not suitable with sensitive skins will increase the case of rosacea.

Wash you face with a gentle cleaning product that fit with sensitive skins and apply daily your skincare but avoid those which contain alcohol.
