I am thinking that perhaps I need a serenity prayer. Not the usual one though. More like a little strength to not over-indulge on the cruise this weekend. Do they have one of those?...

Find Relief for the Symptoms of Rosacea
Rosacea has long been a part of my life. See that red face up there? That is what I look like when I am not using any products to treat my condition. For me, rosacea means redness, bumps and blemishes, which are some of the common rosacea symptoms.1 Over the years, I have used countless makeup products to hide my symptoms, but I’ve realized that what’s truly important is to address the root of the problem. My post today is focused on just that – how to find the right treatment to reduce your rosacea symptoms. For many, that treatment may be Soolantra® (ivermectin) Cream, 1% – proven to effectively treat bumps and blemishes of rosacea in as little as two weeks! 2, 3
What is Rosacea?
To tell you the truth, at first, I didn’t know my skin problems were related to rosacea. With red hair and fair skin, my face always seemed to get red for one reason or another. However, turns out I am one of millions of people who suffer from rosacea but don’t even know that their symptoms could be a sign of this chronic inflammatory skin condition.4 How crazy is that?
Rosacea is actually a fairly common skin condition that most often begins after age 30.1 That’s what happened to me, I was 30 and started feeling bumps and redness that would really irritate my face. Rosacea symptoms include any and/or all of the following:
- acne-like breakouts 1,4
- visible blood vessels 1,4
- facial redness 1,4
- blushing 1,4
- sensitive skin with burning, itching or stinging 1,4
One might experience one or more of these symptoms regularly or only on occasion.1 Additionally, things like hot or cold weather, alcohol (this is a huge trigger for me), emotional stress, sun exposure, or spicy foods can trigger flare-ups. I always have to be careful when drinking wine and being out in the sun because both cause my symptoms to flare up.
For me, discovering that I had rosacea made me a little down at first, and I learned these types of feelings were common amongst those with the condition.4 People can feel sad or embarrassed because of their skin, and even avoid social situations all together (which I have done during flare-ups).4 For these and many other reasons, it’s extremely important to visit a dermatologist, get a proper diagnosis, and start treating your symptoms.1 Once you get relief from your rosacea, these bad feelings can go away.6 If you let your rosacea go untreated, it can worsen and start causing things like thickening of the skin.1 Why risk that when you can get relief?
