Are there any rosacea triggers associated with travel?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Many common triggers for rosacea can arise when you’re traveling, including exposure to increased sun, temperature extremes, or unusually spicy or hot foods or beverages. If traveling or changes in routine make you feel worried or anxious, those stresses can also trigger rosacea flares. Flying can be a rosacea trigger for some people because it can be stressful and because airplane air is dry and can have a dehydrating effect on skin. Ask your dermatologist about the best strategies for minimizing rosacea flares when you travel.
