ROSACEA & SKINCARE

I have Rosacea ["roh-ZAY-sha"]. It's a chronic but treatable condition that makes my face flush with redness along with blemishes and bumps called papules and pustules. I rarely get cystic acne/pimples but I always seem to have these blemishes. I also have ultra sensitive skin that reacts quickly to products, stress, and even food/drinks.

I recently subscribed to the 10-step Korean regimen and my face is getting better. I can now manage the redness and I am hopefully on the road to clearing the nasty bumps and papules. I'll be updating my blog with reviews and tales of my skin care journey and the products that worked for me (and where and how to get them here in the Philippines).

Here are some of my early Rosacea posts:
