Rosacea is a skin disorder that is estimated to affect over 16 million Americans, although many of them go undiagnosed and untreated. Our mission for the month of April is to bring more awareness to this condition and educate consumers on how to best treat their skin.
Rosacea is commonly characterized by a red blotchy complexion on the nose, cheeks, and chin, easily inflamed irritated skin, small visible blood vessels and acne like bumps or pustules. The severity of this condition varies and it is often triggered by sun exposure, stress, hot weather, alcohol and spicy foods.
Although there is no cure for Rosacea we can effectively manage the symptoms and treat the condition with topical creams to reduce the appearance. We have gathered a list of our favorite products to help address the signs of Rosacea.
