Don’t worry, you read that right. I am telling you it’s time to break up with your makeup! Many times, we try and cover our skin imperfections with loads and loads of makeup, when really, that might just be making it worse. Whether it’s acne, rosacea or oily/dry skin, we’ve all been there. Now that summer is finally here, it’s important to take care of our skin and really make sure it’s protected. Here are three simple tips on the path to clear skin:
- If your skin has rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition most commonly seen as persistent facial redness, and is more sensitive, it’s a good idea to look at the ingredients in both prescription medications and current skin care products you’re using. Try a moisturizer that contains lipids, like ceramides. They will help improve the skin barrier and help with the redness.
- Let’s not forget about using our sunscreen either! This is something you should put into your daily routine. It’s the best way to help your skin from showing signs of aging and comes in a variety of options to help if you have oily skin or sensitive skin like rosacea.
- Last, but certainly not least, make sure to get some shut eye and stay hydrated! We hear time and time again that sugary and processed foods can really affect the skin, so make sure to eat a balanced diet and save the indulgences for special occasions. Plus, you’ll feel more energized when you have the needed sleep and are eating the right foods.
But here is the real trick, especially if you are struggling to hide redness caused by rosacea. There’s more than just a cover up option and daily tips and tricks. Try Mirvaso. It’s the first and only gel specifically developed to treat persistent facial redness of rosacea. Not only is this a wallet friendly option, but results can be seen quickly – which we all know is important if we want to look our best for a night out!
So now you can stop worrying about those little imperfections and get back to the fun things like what color lipstick you’re going to wear or the perfect dress you’ll wear to the Emmys!
