I have also noticed that when I get out of the shower in the mornings that my face is also very red and I can clearly see the tell tale mask of Rosacea redness around my cheeks and tip of my nose!
I have to admit, as a teenager I was never very good at looking after my Skin. I think if I was being good I may have used soap and water to clean my face but I remember days where I would just use water if I even bothered! This may sound like it wasn't bad especially not piling on a load of chemicals onto my face but the problem was MAKE UP! I used to wear a lot of it but I never took it off! Naughty I know but then I am a Nurse! Well that's my excuse now but I'm not sure what it was back then!
I wrote an article last December about Rosacea that was published in Mature Living Magazine. For those of you that didn't read it and want to know more about Rosacea, I will print the article here below. If you have any questions about Rosacea or you want to know more about the treatments available at the Claudia McGloin Clinic please visit the clinic website www.claudiamcgloinclinic.com or call the clinic on 071 9140728.
