I’ve talked about my mild rosacea many times over the years but, for those of you who aren’t familiar (or one of the 16 million Americans who currently have it), rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness or flushing of the face and, in some cases, bumps, pimples and skin thickening. Over the years I’ve managed to mostly hide my redness via foundation and tinted moisturizer…but that doesn’t mean that I don’t think twice before going outside barefaced. And it kinda sucks, to be honest…
There was one time, in particular, where I was swimming at a friend’s pool and one friend was all “oh no! your cheeks are getting sunburned!” and I’m all “yeah…no. That’s just my rosacea. I’m wearing SPF 50.” Or, most recently, back in February I was shooting this blog post about a sheet mask and was shocked when I got the photos back from my photographer. I wasn’t wearing any makeup since I was actually applying the sheet mask to my face for the photos…and, boy oh boy, my face does look red.
The “before” shot
That said, I try not to dwell on it too much since I know I have a very mild case, Subtype 1 to be exact, but when I found out that a new product recently hit the market that is clinically proven to improve the symptoms of rosacea in about six weeks I was obviously dying to test it out.
The challenge: While rosacea is a common condition, it’s typically tough to treat because it causes a number of different symptoms, many of which are addressed separately. In fact, according to a recent NRS survey, nearly 80% of rosacea patients claim they have to use more than one medication to manage their condition which, let’s be honest, is pretty annoying to do.
ZO Medical Rozatrol Normalizing Serum Treatment is awesome because you get everything you need to fight your rosacea in ONE TUBE. No more using four different products from four different brands. The Rozatrol Serum Treatment simultaneously attacks the five key symptoms of rosacea – inflammation, decreased cellular renewal, excess oil, vascular degeneration (the appearance of blood vessels on the skin), and neuro-aging. It features an advanced, patent-pending complex of technologies and ingredients that are specially designed to address each of the major rosacea symptoms like inflammation, excess oil and visible blood vessels.
So, you know what else sold me? The product was actually created by world-renowned dermatologist and skincare expert Dr. Zein Obagi. Widely recognized as the founder of the science of skin health, Dr. Obagi is a leader in the field of dermatology, and has led the industry with innovative treatments designed to create and maintain healthy skin. His line of solution-focused products has helped clients around the country achieve healthy, flawless skin, and is a top choice of physicians and dermatologists nationwide.
I’ve been using this product for the past eight weeks and it absolutely works. Like, it’s hands-down the best rosacea treatment I’ve ever tried and now I’m officially hooked! If you suffer from any of the subtypes of rosacea, you can get the product on the website or via your doctor or dermatologist.
