Break Up With Your Makeup – Treat Instead of Conceal

Over the years I have learned a few things about skincare. I have done my share of excessive scrubbing, too much sun, and using way too many quick-fix products that never actually worked. Some of the most important things I have learned about treating my skin well: 1. Drink plenty of water to hydrate skin (it really works); 2. Apply sunscreen on my face every day to avoid sunburn which leads to premature aging; 3. Use the right skincare products for my skin type; 4. Treat my skin instead of concealing with makeup.

Whatever skin issues you may be dealing with (pimples, rosacea, blackheads, you name it) all are best handled with the right treatment rather than the perfect foundation or concealer. If you are dealing with the facial redness of rosacea, Mirvaso could help.

Mirvaso Gel

Mirvaso is an easy-to-use gel for daily use and results can been seen quickly.  Over 82% of rosacea sufferers have used makeup to cover up redness.  Some cosmetics and skincare products can irritate sensitive skin even more so you might be making your redness even worse!

I was surprised to learn that 51% of rosacea suffers do not visit a dermatologist for fear of the cost of treatment.  In contrast, those same folks spend around $36 on a single non-prescription product that claims to cover up facial redness!  If you suffer from facial redness from rosacea it may be time to make that visit to a dermatologist and break up with your makeup!
