15 Rosacea Skincare Products to Soothe Redness
Rosacea; it’s the beauty buzzword that’s recently made its way onto our radar, but what exactly is it?
Rosacea is a super common skin condition where the complexion becomes red and inflamed, particularly around the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Often worsened or triggered by factors such as red wine, caffeinated drinks and spicy food, and with no official way to cure it, it's a skin care concern that's a little more challenging than your occasional zit.
It’s estimated that around one in 10 people in the UK suffer with regular flare-ups. In fact, you’ll probably be surprised to hear that some of your favourite celebs often hit the red carpet, red-faced. That’s right, the likes of Amy Schumer, Cameron Diaz, Sam Smith and Renee Zellweger have all been open and honest about their experiences with the skin condition.
If you've had enough of redness running riot over your skin then look no further, as we round up the best rosacea products that’ll help you take back control of your complexion.
