Covering it up won't clear it up. And yet so many women who deal with rosacea attempt to conceal the redness and bumps with makeup which often times only makes it worse. More often than not, these women don't even realize they are dealing with rosacea in the first place, as it is commonly mistaken as acne.
I spoke with Dr. Doris Day, Cosmetic Dermatologist and Author of 'Forget the Facelift'. We were joined by Mary Erhard from the National Rosacea Society in a conversation about rosacea and a new initiative called 'Break Up With Your Makeup'. Listen in to the interview posted above to learn more about rosacea from Dr. Doris Day and visit www.breakupwithmakeup.com for details on the contest .
"We all have different types skin and different types of issues as a result. Whether its rosacea or something else entirely, the greatest advice for treatment will come from those who know the subject best. When your car won't start, see your mechanic. When your drain is clogged, call a plumber. When you're having issues with your skin, go to a dermatologist. You have to know what the problem is before you can effectively fix it. And while not all things are curable, most all of them are treatable & controllable. In regard to the skin you're in, cheers to clearing it up, as opposed to covering it up." - Allie Merrick
