Like many women, Cynthia did not start to experience problem skin until her early 40s, when she broke out in angry red spots across her face.
First mistaking them for acne, Cynthia attacked them with harsh, astringent products that only made the problem worse, and it was not until she eventually saw a dermatologist that she realised she had actually developed Rosacea.
While it is a skin condition that is rarely talked about, Rosacea is thought to affect 1 in 10 women in Europe.
Cynthia has teamed up with the American National Rosecea Society to help raise awareness, and to support other women with the stress and anxiety that problem skin in adulthood can cause.
For more advice on how to manage Rosacea, see my previous blog post.
If you’re struggling to find the right products, I’d also recommend ordering a sample of our Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream, which is particularly effective at calming, cooling and strengthening the skin and reducing redness.
