Given the pressure on celebrities to have such perfect, beautiful skin, it was so refreshing to see how Cynthia Nixon spoke about her rosacea last week
Like many women, Cynthia had skin problems only in her early 40s when she broke out in angry red spots on her face.
Cynthia first mistaken her for acne and attacked her with hard, astringent products that only made the problem worse. It was only when she finally saw a dermatologist that she realized that she had actually developed rosacea.
While it is a skin condition that is rarely discussed, it is believed that rosacea affects 1 in 10 women in Europe.
Cynthia has partnered with the American National Rosecea Society to raise awareness and support other women with the stress and anxiety that can cause skin problems in adulthood.

If you are having trouble finding the right products, I would also recommend ordering a sample of our Chamomile & Rosehip-Sensitive Skin Cream which is particularly effective in calming, cooling and strengthening the skin is reduction in redness.
