Having worked in the makeup industry I’ve seen a lot of skin care problems. One of those problems is Rosacea. Rosacea affects an estimated 16 million Americans! That’s like almost the whole state of Florida! If you’re one of those people I have something that might help.
Before we start enter the contest!
Mirvaso ~ “stop concealing and start healing”
- Has proven results that were reviewed by the FDA for safety and efficacy

“But Kia! Covering up redness can be frustrating and costly”
- Rosacea sufferers are more likely to be self-conscious and wear makeup more frequently
- 65% of rosacea sufferers wear makeup to work compared to only 35% of Americans who don’t have rosacea
- Just over half of Americans (53%) wear makeup, compared to over 77% of rosacea sufferers
- 51% say they skip the dermatologist because they are worried about the cost of treatment, BUT…
- On average, rosacea sufferers spend $36 on a single non-prescription product that promises to hide or cover-up facial redness
I can guarantee you that you’ve spent more money on foundation and concealer than you have on skin care products to alleviate your redness. To me skin care is an investment and the right investment pays off big time! Mirvaso has proven results that were reviewed by the FDA for safety and efficacy. Plus, depending on your insurance, prescription copays may be as low as $25 and go up from there. Last time I checked those big named skin care products cost way more than $25.
Skin Care Quick Tips:
Calm the Skin
Skin with rosacea is more sensitive and likely to react to ingredients in both prescription medications and skin care products, so talk to your dermatologist about what options are best for you. Moisturizers containing lipids, such as ceramides, are usually well tolerated and can improve the skin barrier, which is often compromised in people with this condition.
Be Picky About Sun Protection
It’s a fact that daily sunscreen is a must, but not all sunscreens are created equal. Not only are some better than others, but many contain ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin with rosacea. The best bets if you are prone to rosacea, are sunscreens that contain transparent zinc and moisturizing ingredients, like niacinamide, and are fragrance-
free and non-comedogenic. oxide
Eat and Sleep Well, Stay Hydrated
It may sound basic but not getting enough sleep can make you look older because sleep is when your body repairs itself. Alcohol, sugary foods and processed foods can affect the skin’s ability to repair itself and cause premature skin aging, so try to eat a balanced diet and indulge rarely. For the occasional late night out, alternate a glass of water or carbonated water with every alcoholic beverage.
