Since I became pregnant with my daughter, I have had red bumpy, dry spots on my face. When I was pregnant with her, they were all over my body. After a few months, the ones on my arms and legs went away, but the ones on my face remained. When I had her, the spots on my face never went away. When I got pregnant with my son, the spots started to get a little better although I didn't try any special products. But almost as soon as he was born, the spots started returning. These spots are known as rosacea. At my worst point, I couldn't go outside and sweat because my face would burn. I couldn't use certain products and still can't use certain soaps.
I recently was sent Prosacea® Medicated Rosacea Gel to try. Prosacea Medicated Rosacea Gel is a Dermatologist recommended medicated treatment that effectively controls rosacea symptoms, like redness, bumps, and irritation. I have been extremely embarrassed by these red spots since they started to appear and have taught myself new make-up techniques to try to cover them up. That's the great thing about Prosacea®, it does not cover up rosacea symptoms but actually controls them. It is a light, water-based formulation that goes on easily, absorbs quickly, and provides a flawless finish even under makeup. So I have added it to my beauty routine. The aloe it contains helps soothe dry, reddened skin.
Prosacea® is the #1 over-the-counter rosacea treatment with a 90% satisfaction among users. I have only been trying it for a few days, but I can tell that there has been a little difference already. In the pictures you'll notice I am still very red beside my left nose because my son scratched me there the other day and this product can't be used on broken skin.
Like with everything in your medicine cabinet, please make sure to read and follow all label instructions before using.
