"Every staff member I've encountered has been nothing short of wonderful and caring. I was dealing with untreated rosacea for years, there were times after washing my face that I would feel utterly demoralized by my complexion. I was shocked when within days of starting treatment I could see the redness in my face dying down. For years I had avoided looking at my face with my glasses until I had applied makeup...but now I was waking up in the morning, grabbing my glasses and rushing off to the mirror to see my face. Thanks OneSkin for helping me to get my complexion back!"- T.B. / Google / Jan 13, 2021

What causes rosacea?
Rosacea is thought to be brought on by a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Individuals of Scandinavian or Celtic descent have a greater tendency to develop rosacea, but rosacea can be seen in all ethnic backgrounds. If you have rosacea, it is likely someone in your family may have experienced severe acne or rosacea. Individuals who have bad acne have a greater chance of developing this condition later in life.
In rosacea there is inflammation in the skin, blood vessels and nerves. Many things can aggravate the condition because they cause superficial blood vessels in the skin to dilate and that triggers more inflammation. Aggravating factors may include spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, sun exposure, extreme temperatures, hot showers and/or baths, anxiety, anger, embarrassment, overexertion, and specific drugs.
Are you experiencing Rosacea Symptoms?
Symptoms of rosacea may range from moderate to severe. The most common presentation of rosacea is redness of the face. The central part of the face (cheeks and nose) is typically where the redness is the worst. Rosacea may also involve the chin and mid-forehead in more severe cases. Blood vessels in the skin become more obvious as the disease worsens. Other signs include swollen and red bumps on the face, which can look like acne. These pimple-like lesions can have pustules just like acne. The skin may also feel tender and hot to the touch. About half of rosacea sufferers have eye issues, including dry eye, irritation, and red, swollen eyelids. In rare situations, your nose can look swollen as the condition can cause the skin on your nose to thicken, leading to a bulbous look.
