This is commonly known as rosacea skin condition. If you struggle with rosacea you are not alone. In fact, 14 million people struggle with rosacea skin condition. Marked by permanent redness over a full third of the face, rosacea skin condition affects self-confidence. This is especially true in social situations.

More on Rosacea
Rosacea is a common condition affecting 14 million people. Rosacea skin condition does not discriminate. Children and adults, men and women all suffer. Although treatments and cosmetics for covering rosacea have come a long way over the years, it remains a very challenging skin condition to manage on a day-to-day basis. Cosmetics can be heavy which does not work well in warmer climates and active lifestyles. These cosmetics can be high-maintenance, too. In addition, systemic treatments are not always an option. Research into the causes of rosacea continues.
Because of research, some of the following facts have been uncovered:
- Genetics plays a part in rosacea. It tends to run in families.
- The health of the immune system and inflammatory responses are factors in developing rosacea.
- People with rosacea are often fair-skinned with light hair and between the ages of 30-50.
- There are four types of rosacea skin condition:
- Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea with redness, flushing and visible blood vessels.
- Papulopustular rosacea: acne-like breakouts accompany the redness
- Phymatous rosacea: A bumpy texture with thickened skin
- Ocular rosacea: Red and irritated eyes, so much so they may swell shut
