It goes without saying that we don't like to be labeled. But, when it comes to problematic skin, classifying the issue might be the first step to finding the solution. In fact, one of the most common skin ailments worldwide, rosacea, affects nearly 16 million Americans. And, it's likely that thousands more go undiagnosed. But, as reported by Beautylish, once the problem has been identified, there are ways to manage the pigmentation, bumps, and visible blood vessels that characterize rosacea.
In fact, Beautylish brought in Kate Somerville, one of most knowledgable beauty experts around, to offer her advice to sufferers. Our takeaways? For those dealing with rosacea, no product is too gentle — harsh, acidic formulas will only exacerbate already irritated skin.
And, according to Somerville, the same goes for makeup — she suggests powder-based products and mineral formulations for the skin-friendly, yet effective way they cover redness.
