Break Up With Your Makeup

My biggest insecurity is probably my rosacea.

From a young age, my face has always been way redder than most people’s, my skin blotchy, my complexion weird. As I’ve grown older, I’ve struggled to find special gels to help with rosacea or make up to cover it up. I have gone broke buying “redness elimination” foundations. These things rarely work, wear off easily, and do very little to keep me from my embarrassment. And I’m sick of it.

Rosacea is actually way more common than you would thinkit affects an estimated 16 million Americans, most of those women. Of those who suffer from it, 82% use makeup and other cosmetics to hide their redness and symptoms.

It’s exhausting. These so-called “solutions” aren’t helping to heal or solve my rosacea, they’re just a temporary cover-up. Often they make it worse.

Enter Mirvaso.

Created by Galderma Laboratories, L.P. , Mirvaso is a gel specifically created to target facial redness associated with rosacea, and wipe it out. It’s not a way to cover up your problemsit’s a way to start the healing practice, so you are no longer a slave to your makeup.

Invest in something to truly heal your skin, and embrace your natural beauty.
