Are you curious about different types of rosacea treatment options that are available these days? If so, I’ve some interesting information for you from Mirvaso, just in time for summer.
Disclosure: I’m participating in the Break Up with Your Makeup Blogger Contest Sponsored by Galderma Laboratories, L.P. and will receive a Cetaphil package.
Thankfully, I’m not in the market for a rosacea treatment because I don’t suffer from this chronic inflammatory skin condition. One of the most common symptoms is persistent facial redness. It’s estimated that 16MM Americans are affected by the condition. So, it’s safe to say that some of my readers aren’t so lucky.
Many people don’t know that it’s a treatable condition and instead simply cover it up with makeup. Mirvaso is the only FDA-approved treatment for the persistent redness of rosacea and they are hosting this 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!
