The stain of a rosy cheek is quite on trend this season, but for many women a rosy cheek often signals the crimson like skin condition called rosacea (pronounced roh-ZAY-sha). Beginning its journey as a warm flush, Rosacea is a common, red, acne like, benign skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. A chronic and often self esteem zapping concern, rosacea can vary in severity with flare ups and remission periods adding to its unpredictability. With the HSE stating that 1 in 10 Europeans currently live with rosacea, this widely misunderstood skin condition can cause significant psychological and social problems if left untreated. Thankfully the team at Beautyfeatures.ie have scoured the beauty and skin care world for a selection of rosacea treatments and solutions chosen just for you, we know you and your skin are going to love!
