The Pink McCartney Rose
Long time readers will know that I suffer from a skin condition called rosacea...
there is no "cure" one needs to be proactive to manage the condition and deal with the occasional flare ups.
Some of the triggers for Rosacea are stress, sunshine, hot and cold temperatures, wind, red wine, spicy foods, and certain chemicals in skincare products.
One never knows when a bout of rosacea may occur.
I try my best to manage the condition.
I use the Avene line of products for sensitive skin.
I wash my skin in the morning
using Anti redness lotion
with a very a light touch
then I gently pat my skin dry.
I apply 3 drops of IS Clinical serum
followed by Avene Hydrance Intense.
I wait a few minutes to allow the products to be absorbed
before applying Bella Donna mineral powder.
It has an SPF of 50 which I use everyday all year long.
The powder covers most of the redness.
In the evening
I remove all the powder with a cotton pad soaked in Micellar Water.
Then I wash my face with the Avene lotion, add the 3 drops of serum and apply Fresh Rose Deep Hydration moisturizer.
( It smells wonderful!)
I occasionally go to a medical based Spa in Oak Bay Derma Spa
for laser treatments which target the broken capillaries and redness.
They are super knowledgable and provide many services
to patients like myself who have skin conditions.
They also sell IS Clinical serums and Bella Donna mineral make up.
I have read a lot about Rocasea and there are many great sites online where you can find out more about the condition.
I hope that you have found this information helpful.
To those of you who have this condition I hope that you have found some ways to cope with the redness and the inevitable flare ups.
I welcome your thoughts and ideas on what works for you...
