What Is Rosacea and Can It Be Concealed?

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a very common chronic inflammatory skin condition that is poorly understood. The condition gives the skin a flushed appearance and a major symptom is the development of spots. According to the NHS, 1 in 10 people in the UK may have Rosacea with people most commonly being diagnosed between the ages of 30 and 50.

Rosacea Symptoms:

  • Stinging or burning sensations in the skin.
  • Visible small blood vessels.
  • Permanent redness.
  • Pus filled blister like spots.
  • Small rash like pimples.

What Causes Rosacea?

It is currently unknown what actually causes Rosacea but it is thought that factors such as having a reaction to microscopic mites found on the face and having abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face could contribute to the condition. It is also known that there are certain triggers which can worsen the condition. These are not direct causes however, stress, spicy food, hot drinks, alcohol & caffeine, strenuous exercise, exposure to the sun and hot or cold weather can all make Rosacea worse. Of course triggers does differ from person to person.

Treatment For Rosacea:

Sadly there is no cure for Rosacea but there are a few ways that you can keep symptoms under control. You can avoid known triggers which cause your Rosacea to flare up and you can contact your GP or Doctor to discuss oral medication which can be taken to help clear severe spots and you can also talk about creams and gels which can help improve the skin condition. If your condition is severe, there are also laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments available which help to make visible blood vessels less visible by causing them to shrink.

If you are looking for a product to cover, conceal and hide the facial redness of your skin whether you suffer from mild Rosacea or a more severe case, our product Veil Cover Cream is one of the best foundations for Rosacea as it is highly pigmented and therefore can easily conceal redness. Unlike many products that struggle to provide the skin with good coverage, Veil Cover Cream contains more pigment which makes covering skin conditions a much easier task. This also means that you will need to use less product, making Veil Cover Cream a truly economical option.

Here are some reviews that we received from customers who suffer from Rosacea:

“I have rosacea on my checks and have found veil cream the best there is to cover the redness. I don’t fight the redness anymore I use a small amount of foundation and the rose veil cream to cover the blotchy red patches. It’s worth every penny to me and it only takes me 10 minutes to do my make up now. Thank you.” – Laura

“I got this foundation and powder in an attempt to cover up rosacea (involuntary blushing mainly on face but often red blotches on chest and neck also). This make up has worked a treat and I am feeling so much better about myself. I ordered the sample kit and after a few days had found my perfect match ( I got about 2-3 applications per sample colour) so I now use that and the powder. Very pleased, performs well and looks natural.” – Christopher
