Heal, Don't Conceal with Prosacea

During my teen years I started to develop rosacea.  My lucky older sister was the one who got the good skin.  As for me, my cheeks would get red, irritated and bumpy.  Paired with the pimples it was a horrible combination and a pretty embarrassing time.  Let's just say it didn't help my self-esteem.  It never went away and would get really bad in college which was a high stress time for me.  Thanks to this little tube of Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel my skin is better than it ever has been! 

People who have seen my face clear up are amazed at how much better it looks now.  They are seriously amazed.  Reduced redness, bumps, and even smaller pores.  I had a hard time finding a picture showing my rosacea [because I never took pictures without makeup] but if you picture his cheek on my face you get the idea of what it looked like.  His doctor thinks my little guy has inherited my skin and he may have rosacea too.  Unfortunately Prosacea® is for adults but at least he will have something to use when he is older. 

I use to try to cover it up with concealer and foundation, not wear blush because I already had the redness, but covering up can only get you so far.  This much make up just isn't ideal in the summer time or when you are at the pool and beach.  Thanks to continual use of Prosacea® Medicated Gel it has helped to control those symptoms from rosacea, especially when I get super stressed.  My skin still gets a little red as you can see, but it is nothing like it was before.
Every night I wash my face with a light cleanser and use a teeny tiny bit of Prosacea® Medicated Rosacea Gel on my cheeks.  Top that with a moisturizer because my face gets really dry and done.  Like most facial products it does have a smell but it is not horrible or stinky.  It is really light, and a water- based formula so it goes on easily and absorbs quickly.  You can wear it under your makeup during the day or try this night time regiment for a few days and you too can start seeing results. 

Prosacea® Medicated Rosacea Gel isn't like makeup that will just cover up Rosacea but will help control those symptoms.  Just like with every other medicine in your cabinet just be sure to read and follow the directions on the label.  It will heal and not just conceal.  Prosacea® is Dermatologist recommended and the #1 over-the-counter rosacea treatment.  It has a 90% satisfaction among users because it actually works!  I'm only wearing moisturizer and a BB cream and can actually wear a little blush without looking flushed!

  1. Yay for finding something that works for you! I struggle with adult acne, but the scarring is the worst! It's so saddening to want to hide your face constantly and wear makeup all the time. You look lovely, and I'm sure you feel so liberated!
