rosacea.pngAccording to the National Institutes of Health, ROSACEA is a common long-term skin disease affecting the face. It affects over 16 million Americans.

Rosacea is attributed to:

  • Chronic inflammatory condition characterized by persistent redness
  • Visible signs of redness coming and going. 
  • Rosacea may look like acne in some cases, but it is completely different and should not be treated with acne products. 
  • While at first, symptoms come and go, redness becomes more frequent, ruddier, and blood vessels may appear as time goes on. 
  • Observing the pattern of the inflammation and where it appears will determine which type or types of rosacea someone has.
  • Inadequate Gut, Colon & Liver Health.
