Rosacea is a troubling condition for a surprisingly large number of people. I have battled with a mild version of it myself. If you are not familiar with Rosacea, it is a skin condition that often presents itself with facial redness, an acne-like appearance, and irritated eyes. It can be tempting to try to cover it up with makeup, but that isn’t always effective and Rosacea actually can be successfully treated.
Mivaso® (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33% is one of Galderma’s leading skin care products. It is the first prescription treatment product developed specifically to treat the persistent redness associated with Rosacea. With treatment, you can get away from caking on the makeup and back to a fresh natural face. Sounds perfect, right?
Along those lines, Mivaso® is hosting a fun giveaway! The Break Up With Your Makeup Contest! All you have to do is enter your email to win. It is easy as that!
If you are looking for a few other things that you can do to treat your Rosacea in connection with using Mivaso®, try these suggestions:
(1) Use skin calming moisturizers and avoid irritating products. Talk to your physician about recommendations and look for products for sensitive skin.
(2) Always use sunscreen. This is important for everyone, but even more so for those with Rosacea. But, be wary of chemical sunscreens that can irritate some people. Zinc Oxide is a preferred sunscreen for people with Rosacea. Look for transparent forms to avoid a white look from the zinc.
(3) Get plenty of sleep and stay hydrated. This will keep your skin in it best condition and assist with healing.
