Breakup with your Makeup + Win A Trip to The Emmys !!! (+ Rafflecopter GIVEAWAY!!!)

Sponsored post (see disclaimer below)

Let's talk about our skin here for a sec...
Are you one of those that suffer from Rosacea???
Please keep reading because you are not alone.
It is time to break up with your makeup! 
Instead of concealing your redness, why not start treating it?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne. (source: Google.com)

I am fortunate enough to not have this condition but 16 million Americans actually suffer from it! And instead of enjoying the beauty of makeup, makeup products have became a reason for these women suffering Rosacea to conceal the redness of their skin instead of having fun with makeup! And when you are always on the hunt for the perfect cover-up for those redness, it can get costly! Aren't you tired of this? Wouldn't you want to treat it instead?!?

Mirvaso (brimonidine) topical gel is the first and only prescriptive gel that was developed to treat the redness caused by Rosacea. You will see it working in less than 30minutes and it will keep the redness away for up to 12hours.
 Mirvaso® (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%* is the only FDA-approved treatment for the persistent facial redness of rosacea

*Each gram of gel contains 5 mg of brimonidine tartrate, equivalent to 3.3 mg of brimonidine free base.

Besides using Mirvaso topical gel, here are more tips from Dr. Doris Day - New York City dermatologist and Clinical Associate Professor at NYU Langone Medical Center,  on how to take care of your skin if you suffer from Rosacea:


Even though I don't suffer from Rosacea, these skin care tips are applicable to us still... Always hydrate as our skin do show signs of dehydration and dryness when we are not drinking enough water. And those baggy eyes are there because of lack of a goodnight sleep! So a nice 8-hour sleep will truly make a difference. Make sunscreen as part of your AM Routine and NEVER forget or skip this step! Lack of sun protection will show early signs of wrinkles and sun damage on the skin.
