Many of our Parisian's Pure Indulgence customers are afflicted with Rosacea, so I'm always on the lookout for new ways to help. I have early symptoms myself and know first hand how challenging it is to live with.
Rosacea sufferers experience an overactivity of blood vessels in the face, which is why those with rosacea flush easier than others. Over time, the persistent flushing can lead to redness and broken capillaries along with red pimples.
This week I was watching a morning talk show (something I rarely get to do) and Kristin Chenoweth was on the show speaking about her battle with Rosacea. As an actress, it has to be particularly distressing to experience the redness rosacea causes.
“Persistent facial redness from rosacea is something I’ve struggled with every day for years,” Chenoweth stated. “Recently, my dermatologist … gave me Rhofade cream, a treatment I use once a day, every day that helps reduce my redness all-day, through 12 hours."
Rhofade is a prescription ointment by Allergan. It's also NOT cheap. If your insurance doesn't cover the prescription, know it comes with a hefty $500-600 price tag per tube.
I wish there were a cure for Rosacea, but at this point, we can only treat the symptoms.
I'm proud that our skincare line, Parisian's Pure Indulgence, is not known to aggravate Rosacea as many other product lines do. Our formulas are gentle and effective. Many of our customers report using our pro-aging treatments successfully without worry of making Rosacea symptoms worse.
I'm happy to learn of Kristin Chenoweth's success with Rhofade. Check with your dermatologist to see if this is a good option for you if you suffer from Rosacea.
