Combating Rosacea

If you suffer from facial redness, listen up!

Substances like alcohol and caffeine are factors causing roughly 16 million Americans to live with facial redness, also known as Rosacea.

Rosacea is a condition where the flushing of small blood vessels on the face causes your cheeks, nose or chin to redden and can even result in small bumps or acne on the skin.

Dermatologists offer treatment options, but you can also look to your local drugstore for "redness relief" formulas. Experts say a product that has green neutralizers will help conceal redness and even out complexion.

Doctors say to avoid future flare-ups, you should keep a diary of red episodes with notes on food, medicines and products so you can help pinpoint triggers.
