Growing up, I always had rosy cheeks. I never recalled anyone in my family having the same coloring, but I remember trying to hide the color in high school with makeup. Over the years, I’ve become more comfortable in my own skin, but it has always been a little bothersome. Many people will point out how red my face is and think that I’ve just finished running or something of the like.
This past summer, my dermatologist finally diagnosed me with rosacea and prescribed something that might help. (Might being the operative word here.) She gave me a few samples, and they left my skin feeling like I was going to rip it off from how itchy it was, so I never filled the prescription. I’ve tried so many products over the years, including various face cleansers and soap. Soap dries my face out and some of the face cleansers leave me in a worst state.
Recently I received Prosacea® Medicated Gel to try out. I was skeptical, of course, but I’m willing to try something that claims to control rosacea symptoms. The symptoms, by the way, include redness, bumps and irritation. I definitely have the redness and irritation. Using Prosacea can help control symptoms within a few days, and I so far have not had a reaction to it. Like with everything in your medicine cabinet, please make sure to read and follow all label instructions before using Prosacea.
Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel is dermatologist recommended. It isn’t made to cover up symptoms, but to control them. The water-based gel goes on easily and absorbs quickly. You can even apply it before makeup, without any issues.
Find Prosacea in the first aid aisle at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and many retailers nationwide. Visit their website for a full list of retailers. You can also find a $3.00 off coupon on Prosacea.com.
