Are you blushing a little bit too much? If you feel constant burning or stinging sensation and notice persistent red patches, visible blood vessels and acne-like spots on your nose, chin, cheeks or forehead, beware! You may have rosacea.
Rosacea is a skin condition that involves inflammation of the blood vessels underneath the skin. It can start as an intermittent redness or rash and can develop into something more persistent over time. Little is known about its cause, but studies say it affects about 14 million Americans—some of them don’t even know they have it.
While there’s no known cure for Rosacea, Avène offers a complete, easy-to-use regimen to minimize, neutralize and prevent redness. Its redness relief line features two new products: Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate, an intensive treatment for chronic redness; and Antirougeurs CALM Soothing Repair Mask, an ultra-soothing repair mask for immediate redness relief. Aside from the healing properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water, both products contain Saponin-enriched Ruscus extract to increase microcirculation and reduce skin reactivity.
