What Is Rosacea? Welcome to Rosacea Awareness Month! This week we begin a series of three episodes dedicated to increasing your awareness about one of the most common skin disorders on the planet. Have you ever had prolonged blushing or a strange break-out on your cheeks and wonder if it might be rosacea? Depending on your age, ethnicity and lifestyle (stress is the most common rosacea trigger), you have up to a 1-in-5 chance of it being true. In this episode, we'll explain the four stages of rosacea, including who's prone, common triggers and what to look for when you believe you may have rosacea. We'll also discuss what we've found useful in dealing with our own rosacea issues. Stay tuned for a month filled with everything you need to know when it comes to rosacea.
