I was diagnosed with rosacea 11 years ago, just one year after having my first child. Since that time, I have tried several prescription and over the counter medications, but nothing has seemed to help ease the redness.
From oral medications to topical ones, I've tried everything. I've spent countless dollars on makeup, mainly concealers, that I use to mask the redness. But by the end of the day, the makeup wears off and I am left with red cheeks and a rosy nose.
Rosacea often affects my self confidence and makes me painfully aware of the redness. I see other women my age with porcelain skin, and I am, undoubtedly, envious.
I was excited to recently learn that Mirvaso, the only FDA-approved treatment for the persistent redness of rosacea, is hosting a sweepstakes to raise awareness of the treatment, encouraging people to Break Up with Your Makeup. Mirvaso works fast, providing same-day results that last up to 12 hours before the redness returns, leaving users red-carpet ready!
I am looking forward to working with my dermatologist to test out Mirvaso on my own rosacea. I've tried to head off triggers. I've even tried a gluten-free diet to see if that helped ease my redness. But so far, I've had no luck with any proposed remedies.
If you have rosacea or know someone who does, you can get more information about Mirvaso, and you can enter to win a trip to the Emmys in Los Angeles. The Emmys!!! Oh, how I'd love a trip to LA to see the Emmy Awards!!
