This post was part of the Break Up with Your Makeup program sponsored by Galderma Laboratories, L.P. through their partnership with POPSUGAR.

Whether it’s dealing with acne as a teen or battling dark spots in your twenties and thirties, almost everyone struggles with less than perfect skin. In a world of constant photo sharing and selfies, there seems to be a constant pressure to have clear skin, but doing so can be incredibly difficult especially with a challenging skin condition like rosacea.
I’m lucky to have never experienced rosacea, but I have a few complexion imperfections of my own to deal with – like hyperpigmentation and hormonal acne that seem to be getting worse every year. So, I can understand the frustration that comes with these kinds of irritating skin problems. Dealing with rosacea can feel like a private battle, but it may help to remember that you’re not alone. The National Rosacea Society (NRS) estimates that at least 16 million Americans struggle with rosacea.
Bumps and pimples are common symptoms of rosacea, it’s often confused with acne but it’s not just a beauty concern to be covered up with makeup. Unfortunately, not many people know that this inflammatory skin condition is treatable and instead cake on the makeup to conceal their blemishes. But the good news is that now you can ditch your concealers and cover-ups and help get your rosacea bumps and pimples under control with Soolantra® (ivermectin) Cream, 1% by Galderma Laboratories, L.P.
Soolantra® (ivermectin) Cream, 1% is a prescription topical treatment that treats the bumps and blemishes of rosacea with a once-daily, easy-to-apply cream. Specially formulated to be tough on rosacea but easy on your skin, the Soolantra Cream fights bumps and blemishes with a powerful medication formulated with a gentle moisturizing base. The active ingredient in Soolantra Cream is ivermectin, which is reported to have anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you have rosacea and want to break up with your makeup, I suggest checking out Soolantra Cream. It’s always better to heal than conceal…don’t you agree?
In addition to treatment, a combination of rosacea-smart skin care and avoiding your triggers can help you get your rosacea under control. Think gentle when it comes to your daily skin care regimen. Read product labels and if you see ingredients that could be potential irritants such as alcohol, fragrances, witch hazel, menthol, peppermint or eucalyptus oil, don’t put it on your face!
Rosacea may get worse over time, so it’s important to consult with your dermatologist to seek the right diagnosis and treatment. To raise awareness about rosacea, Galderma is hosting a contest and sweepstakes encouraging people to Break Up with Your Makeup.
Rosacea patients can submit a no-makeup selfie along with a 100 word story about their experience with rosacea, sharing how they stay confident even on “tough skin days.” The winning submission will receive a trip to NYC for the NY Film Festival later this year. And just for voting on their favorite stories, come July, three people will each win a $500 American Express gift card! Check out the Break Up with Your Makeup contest here for more information, and enter to win!
