What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a very common skin condition. It causes redness on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead.
Symptoms begin with episodes of flushing (when the skin turns red). As Rosacea progresses, other symptoms can develop such as: burning and stinging sensations, permanent redness, spots (papules and pustules), small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible.
In the most severe cases, skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose.
Rosacea is a chronic and relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad, followed by periods when the condition is less severe. While there is no cure, treatments are available to control symptoms.
Recommended products to cover Redness & Rosacea
- To cover rosacea use Dermablend Corrective Foundation Cream Stick for localised concealing alongside the foundations for the face: Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation or Dermablend Corrective Compact Cream Foundation
- For smudge-resistant, long-lasting wearability for up to 16 hours, apply Dermablend Setting Powder over your foundation.
Since a young age I’ve suffered from bad breakouts. This mean even when my skin is having a ‘good day’ I still have scarring and lots of redness. My main concern is covering this up. I’ve found myself hiding in jackets, behind scarf's and felt like there are certain things I can’t do as it has made me feel so low. It’s nearly all I think about when I’m having a bad skin day.
I cover my skin to look better and feel more confident; when i cover my skin I feel - Confident, alive, unstoppable! The 1st time I used Dermablend I was shocked, excited and generally really pleased with the results. It feels lighter that other brands but had better coverage. I also love the luminous look.
I've had Rosacea since I was a teenager, about 13. Generally I just find it really embarrassing. I hate when people ask me if I'm hot or worse if they assume I've had too much to drink!
When I first used Dermablend it gave a really even cover very quickly and I didn't have to layer it on really thickly like I have had to with other brands. In the best way possible I feel like everyone else! I don't have to worry about flaring up or people asking me about it - it's great!
I would also add that it is great that Dermablend is recognising how upsetting it can be when there is something about your skin that you don't like, because your skin is so much part of who you are and who people see you as. Dermablend allows me to control what I don't like about my skin and let people see me as I want to be seen!
