I’m starting a blog called Live Happily with Rosacea. It’s goal is to provide tips and tricks on how to live happily despite having this skin condition.
I have had Rosacea since I was a teenager. It started out as just blushing. I would get really hot and my cheeks would turn red. After awhile I noticed that my nose was getting red and it would stay that way for hours or days at a time. As the years went by, the redness got worse, spreading across my face and making me look like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Finally, when I hit my 30’s, my face was bright red all the time. My nose turned from red to pink, but it was still very noticeable especially when you looked at me from the side profile. I had broken blood vessels appear all over my face, making them spread like wildfire in an out of control forest fire.
I was always self conscious of my appearance and people would ask me if I was sick or if I had been drinking because of my rosy glow.
Over the years, I found ways to cope with this skin condition and even ways to make it look better so that people wouldn’t notice as much

What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness of the face, usually around the cheeks and nose area. While some people with rosacea may only experience redness on their face, others may have small, pus-filled bumps or pimples as well as visible blood vessels (telangiectasia). People with rosacea tend to get flushing more easily than those who do not have the condition. This can lead to embarrassment for many people because their face becomes red even when they are just walking outdoors in cold weather or when they eat spicy foods. Many people
Rosacea is a common but often overlooked skin condition that affects your face. It is estimated that over 14 million Americans have rosacea, but it can be difficult to diagnose as many people confuse it with acne or eczema.
There are four types of rosacea. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is characterized by flushing and redness. Papulopustular rosacea causes acne-like breakouts and swelling. Phymatous rosacea causes thickening skin, usually on the nose, while ocular rosacea affects the eyes. While no cure currently exists for rosacea, there are a number of treatments available to help manage symptoms.
One way to manage your rosacea is by avoiding triggers that cause flare-ups. While every person’s triggers are different, some of the most common things that can cause flare-ups include sun exposure, extreme temperatures, stress, alcohol consumption and spicy food.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by redness in the face. It usually affects the cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin but it can spread to the ears, neck, and chest.
Rosacea starts out with flushing episodes that can occur on a daily or weekly basis. It can also progress to persistent redness, pimples and visible blood vessels. In rare cases, rosacea can thicken the skin on the nose, causing it to appear bulbous known as rhinophyma.
Rosacea affects more than 16 million Americans and is most common in fair-skinned women between 30 and 60 years of age. Men are also affected by this skin condition but tend to have more severe symptoms.
The exact cause of rosacea is unknown but there are several factors that can trigger flare ups including spicy foods, alcohol, sun exposure and stressful situations. It has also been found that rosacea often runs in families.
Rosacea (pronounced roh-ZAY-sha) is a chronic and potentially life-disruptive disorder primarily of the facial skin, often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. Many have observed that it typically begins any time after age 30 as a flushing or redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go. In some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears.
Bumps and pimples often develop in more advanced stages of rosacea. In most cases, the eyes are also affected, feeling irritated and appearing watery or bloodshot.
While there is no cure for rosacea yet, medical therapy can control and reduce its signs and symptoms. Without treatment, persistent redness in the central face may develop into an enlarged nose (rhinophyma).
Rosacea (ro-zay-sha) is a common but poorly understood disorder of facial skin that is estimated to affect well over 16 million Americans — and most of them don’t know it. Often mistaken for acne, eczema or a skin allergy, rosacea is a chronic condition that affects both women and men from all ethnic groups starting any time after age 30.
Every day, the skin of my face tells me that it is wiser and more experienced. If I could go back in time to when I was a teenager, I would do this and this and this to take care of my skin. If I could go back twenty years, I would have done an entirely different set of things.
The most important thing is sunscreen. Wear it every day. You can get away with not wearing sunscreen some days when you are young, but you won’t be young forever.
Second most important thing: don’t poke your face. Don’t pick at anything, don’t squeeze anything, don’t scratch anything that doesn’t go away immediately. The result is never worth it. Trust me on this one.
And if all else fails, there’s always Makeup
