Rosacea (pronounced roh-zay-sha) is a long term skin disorder where the blood vessels become swollen and the areas of the face become inflamed. This disorder usually appears between the ages of 30 and 60 although younger women have become susceptible.

Women and men can develop rosacea but more women seem to succumb to this disorder. Symptoms are varied and include areas of redness on the cheeks, forehead, chin, nose and even eyelids; the appearance of small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks and in severe cases acne- like pustules.

Rosacea seems to be on the rise lately as some women thinking it’s a complexion problem dismiss it and hope it will go away but in reality will grow progressively worse. Acne and Seborrheic Dermatitis are co- occurring skin diseases sometimes giving rise to mis-diagnosis. If caught early this disorder can be cured but if later will become a lifelong problem.

The makeup that you apply to your face can be a source of possible irritants. The best choice for rosacea and acne sufferers is mineral makeup which doesn’t contain these ingredients (some supposed mineral makeup does, so read the labels carefully): talc, Bismuth Oxychloride, preservatives, synthetic dyes and fragrance. Talc is a cancer causing ingredient that clogs pores. Bismuth Oxychloride is a mineral that is a by-product of lead and copper refining. Its properties are very similar to Arsenic hence the redness and irritation which results after prolonged use. Synthetic dyes such as FD&C colors and lakes can also be irritants to the skin.

The inclusion of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide give excellent sunscreen capabilities and zinc oxide is an anti- inflammatory so it calms the skin down, soothing and camouflaging the flushed areas. Without the addition of talc, mineral foundation holds in moisture which helps the skin’s dry condition. We’ve created a line of foundations that is geared specifically women with rosacea and acne, this is our concealer foundation, it has a higher zinc content.

    I have mild rosacea and started using mineral makeup by Monave about 4 months ago. Not only does the foundation cover the redness on my cheeks, I have noticed over the months that the redness is much reduced even when I’m not wearing makeup. The only thing I changed during that time was my foundation. I love the way this mineral foundation looks and feels on my skin!

    There are certain contrasts between acne rosacea and acne vulgaris. As you probably know, acne vulgaris is the most common form of acne which seems to start with the onset of puberty and is characterized by the formation of whiteheads and blackheads. Acne rosacea, on the other hand, usually makes its first appearance between the ages of 30 and 50, is confined to the face — mostly the nose, cheeks, chin, forehead and eyelids — and is not associated with overactive oil glands.;
