Rosacea is a very common skin condition in Ireland and with so many people suffering from it I decided to do some research and find some of the best products to treat it.
What is Rosacea?
A chronic skin condition characterised by facial erythema (redness) and inflammation across the central face. Approximately 80% of people presenting the clinical signs of this condition do not know what they have.
Rosacea typically presents as permanent redness, small dilated vessels or spots across the cheeks, nose, or forehead and millions of people suffer from this condition without realizing that it is a skin disorder. The impact of facial redness isn’t just physical, for some sufferers, chronic redness can be distressing and even debilitating; affecting confidence and self-esteem.
