Rosacea is a treatable, chronic inflammatory skin condition and one of the most common symptoms is persistent facial redness and sometimes acne-like bumps . It’s estimated that 16MM Americans are affected by the condition. As I’ve aged, I have developed a mild case of rosacea mostly on my cheeks and chin. It’s tempting to cover it up with layers of makeup but I want my skin to breathe and detest the look of makeup that looks like it was applied with a trowel for cement. Cetaphil products have helped keep my mild rosacea under control.

Rosacea CAN be successfully treated. Mivaso® (brimonidine) is an FDA-approved topical gel, and one of the first prescription treatment product developed specifically to treat the persistent redness associated with Rosacea.  It calms redness for up to 12 hours. With treatment, you can get away from caking on the makeup and back to a fresh natural face. Sounds perfect, right?

Wait….there’s more! Mivaso is offering a Cetaphil gift basket to one lucky Prime Beauty reader! Just leave me a comment and tell me if you have experienced rosacea and what you do to treat and/or prevent it. Good luck!
