Couperose: everything you need to know to prevent and treat it

Couperose is a dermatological condition that affects thousands of people. At first it may seem like a simple irritation or a breakout of acne, but over time you realize that it is something more serious and you begin to wonder what it is and what causes it.

For people who have been suffering from it for a while, they know that it is not something serious, but it is annoying and that it limits their life.

If you are worried about suffering from couperose, in this article we will explain in detail how you can prevent its appearance. If, on the other hand, you already live with it, we will tell you which doctor to go to, some treatments so that you keep it to a minimum and the possible prognosis that your couperose will have.

Can couperose be prevented?

It is not known for sure why some people develop couperose and others do not. What are known are the triggers, that is why many specialists will advise you that, if you already have sensitive skin:

  1. Avoid exposing yourself to the sun without protection.
  2. Measure your alcohol and tobacco intake.
  3. Eat a balanced diet full of antioxidants and vitamins.

These three measures do not guarantee that you will not suffer from couperose, but they do greatly reduce your chances.

I have couperose, what specialist should evaluate me?

In the event that you have begun to manifest this skin condition, it is best to go to a dermatologist, because he is the one who will analyze the redness and the condition of the skin.

In addition, they will study your medical history and prescribe the best treatment for couperose.

Treatment for couperose.

Before talking about the treatment of couperose, it must be distinguished from rosacea, since both are very similar skin disorders, but with different prognoses.

The difference between couperose and rosacea is that the former are small varicose veins that appear on the face, while the latter is a disease that leaves lesions on the skin and can affect other organs. Rosacea prevention and treatment is much more rigorous.

As for couperose, the doctor will determine the method to follow depending on the condition of the skin. Dermatologists often recommend:


It should be done twice a day, morning and night. As the skin is very sensitive and red, it is advisable not to use harsh soaps. Those that help the most in skin care in these circumstances are those that do not have irritating elements and do not need to be rinsed. A good example of this type of product is micellar water that removes makeup while moisturizing.

Avoid products that scratch the skin

By this we mean exfoliants. In fact, the skin can become more irritated if you do a treatment with them. If you need to cleanse your skin more deeply, talk to your doctor.

Creams for couperose

After cleaning, the skin tends to remain red, this is especially true in people who suffer from couperose. Many specialists advise using creams that have CBD, as it is anti-inflammatory and soothing at the same time. In addition, they are made from completely natural products and do not cause any side effects.


It is an essential part of couperose treatment. This condition dries the skin, so not only is it enough to drink two liters of water a day, you also have to replace the water and lipids that you have lost throughout the day.


Suffering from couperose does not mean that you cannot fix yourself. You should only find products for this type of skin. This makeup is the same as any other in that it hides redness and protects you from cold and pollution, but with the addition that it does not irritate your skin.

Solar protection

It is the last step before leaving home. Sun protection will prevent your couperose from worsening while keeping the skin hydrated and slowing down its aging.

Balanced diet

To hydrate the skin and keep it young, it is necessary to eat a balanced diet in which fruits and vegetables are a main component, because they are full of water, vitamins and antioxidants. Other ideal foods to increase blood circulation and reduce redness are onion, garlic, beets and citrus fruits.

It is also recommended that you avoid vinegar in meals.

Prognosis of couperose

Unlike rosacea, couperose is not a serious condition, but a personalized treatment should be established and started as soon as possible to prevent the redness from spreading over time.

The duration of couperose will depend on your lifestyle, the severity of the condition, and how soon you begin the procedure to heal your skin.
