Rosacea: What I’ve Learnt So Far

As I described in my last blog post, my rosacea is largely under control at the moment. I have altered my diet, habits and reactions to stress to accommodate it.

However, even when I’m not having a flare up, my skin is always red. This is partly due to my natural complexion but also down to the broken veins that come part and parcel with rosacea. Every time you flush, veins break in your face and these cannot be healed (they can be removed with scary lasers which I have accepted I will have to do at some point in the future).

Therefore I am on a constant quest to find cosmetics that 1) cover my redness without 2) aggravating my rosacea. This is a lot trickier than it sounds. Hopefully the following advice/tips will be helpful to anyone with rosacea or sensitive skin.

I’ve been thinking recently about the problems I have finding cosmetics and products that suit my skin. I thought I could look for advice here and also share my rosacea story and how I was diagnosed.

I have rosacea. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s a skin condition that to some may look like harmless blushing. However  can then turn into more persistent redness, broken veins and bumps on the face. It is more common in women (but more severe in men) and people over 30.
