Has your complexion been clear since you were a teenager, but now you have pimples again?
You may have rosacea. Rosacea looks like acne but it is very different. The pimples of rosacea happen on the ‘apples’ of the face – the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose. The skin also looks different. Look closely at your face. Are there blackheads present as hard plugs in the pores? If not, then it is unlikely that your pimples are a return of teenage acne because that type of acne (acne vulgaris) manifests as both pimples and blackheads.
Rosacea, on the other hand, is an inflammation of the pores resulting in redness and pustules. You may have clogged pores, but the matter in these pores is soft and oily. The skin may also be red and sensitive in general, but it might not be. People with rosacea often find that their facial skin flushes easily from things like eating spicy foods, getting overheated, exertion or drinking alcohol/hot beverages.
We’ve just passed through the holiday season and it is now winter in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the time of year when rosacea is most likely to be a problem. If you are an adult and have started to notice complexion problems that look a little like acne, I recommend that you learn more about rosacea. This is because there are different types of rosacea and they need different skin care. Also, some types of rosacea get worse if you use common acne treatment medicines. In addition, rosacea and flaking and dryness called seborrhea also often coexist. If you have both, then you’ll get the best control when you use products that treat both conditions. The good news about rosacea is that it is often very controllable with some simple changes in your skin care.
I’ve created a free EBook on rosacea to help you really understand all that dermatologists know about the condition. I’ve treated rosacea patients for over 30 years and scientific knowledge has progressed nicely in that time. You don’t always need expensive medicines to control this very common skin problem and cause of adult acne. I give you practical information on skin care that helps instead of worsens your condition. I also help you understand what triggers flare ups of rosacea so you can be prepared, or even avoid them.
In the United States alone, over 14 million people have rosacea. Rosacea is so common that if you are an adult who has started getting pimples, I recommend that you learn more about it.
If you want to get started immediately on skin care that helps rosacea, try my popular Redness Relief Kit. It has got the best and most important ingredients to help control rosacea quickly. It also has ingredients to help fight facial seborrheic dermatitis. Since I developed this simple kit, I receive the nicest comments from patients and customers.

I’ve tried just about every product, Rx and OTC, on the market and seen numerous dermatologists (spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in the process) to get some relief for my ultra-sensitive, rosacea-plagued face, and nothing has really helped…until now. Dr. Bailey’s zinc soap and Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy followed by the Glycolix Elite SPF 30, have made a HUGE difference–and in only about a month. My itching and flaking are gone, the redness is almost gone, and I break out much less frequently. It’s like a miracle. I feel so fortunate to have come across her website and wonderful products, and I recommend them highly!Barbaa, 7/16/14
