Breaking up is hard to do, especially when it comes to breaking up with your makeup. Women in their forties and fifties deal with all sorts of skin care issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, wrinkles…sometimes all at the same time. Who needs that insanity? I used to believe in covering up my newly developed skin care issues, but once I started having bouts of rosacea I learned that I needed to stop concealing and start healing.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and acne-like bumps. Anyone can develop rosacea, but it is more common in middle aged women with a fair skin tone. Most people develop rosacea on their faces, but mine started on my neck. Every day it got worse until I couldn’t ignore it any longer. Here are a few healthy skin care tips I learned on my journey toward breaking up with my makeup.
Paying attention and making healthy choices leads to great skin! It is so worth it to stop concealing and start healing.
