I'm a girl too lol, and I totally get it. Still, once you get used to going out without makeup it gets really easy. I started going without for the first time in 30 years at age 43 and people tell me I look younger and more vibrant than ever. We're our own worst critics. Give it a try!

Hey I have Rosacea too! How long have you been dealing with it? I get puffy red patches all over my nose and cheeks :(

I had it show up after menopause, another highlight lol! So around 10 years. I have a gel I got from my dermatologist called Clobetasol but it’s super greasy so I rarely use it.

I’ve found a really nice face cream that helps keep mine in check. It’s from Jan Marini the step 4 cream. Pricey but worth it to me.

What are you using?

I use a brimonidine gel. It doesn't get rid of everything and you can still see some redness, but I feel confident enough now to go without makeup and feel like I'm not scaring everyone lol. I put it on every morning before I go out and every night before bed.
