Men and Rosacea

Men suffer from rosacea just as much as women, but many men ignore it, push it off to something else, like high blood pressure, too much sun, and best yet--just my NORMAL skin tone. Men are also less likely to seek help for a cosmetic problem-even when they know it is a problem. The problem with this approach is rosacea is progressive. In other words, it does not go away.

Since about 80% of the American public have never even heard of rosacea and have no idea what it is, rosacea becomes more that just a cosmetic problem. A simple job interview and to the interviewer, you look like a drunk. Your face is red, your eyes are bloodshot(ocular rosacea) and guess what? You are turned down for the position! Not because of your knowledge in your respective career, but forward thinking CEO's see you as a risk. "This guy drinks or just doesn't fit our corporate image." So they hire the guy with the pure white face and clear eyes and drinks like a fish, but no rosacea. Alcohol does NOT cause rosacea, but can trigger it. So can stress, sunshine, heat, many foods and you might just be at a permenant stage of redness with ocular rosacea.(I will talk about ocular rosacea in a later blog).

And what about you single guys? Do you think women like red, glowing or flushing faces. I think you already know the answer to that one.

So what can men do? First and most important get over your fear of doctors. We are here to help you. That's it! Second, we have NO torture machines in our offices. Those are just unfounded rumors. IPL or intense pulsed light works very well on most all men and can take the redness out of your face and in a lot of cases, clear up bloodshot eyes and ease flushing.

What does IPL feel like? Well, it does hurt a little. We do apply some numbing cream beforehand that takes the sting out, and cool gel during the treatment. In some cases, we can premedicate the patient until many of the rosacea targets are gone. For the most part, it feels like a snap of a rubber band(not a fully stretched out one) or a very brief hot poker feeling. Just kidding.

So guys, don't let your rosacea progress, get it treated and I think your entire life will improve. Visit my website if you like,

I ordered Zenmed system for rosacea, the delivery was right on time. I am very please with the results of the products. I am glad I tried the system, it has worked great and I will order again from them.

I finally found a product that actually worked on my skin as it was extremely dry from rosacea, and no cream (I tried many) had solved that problem previously. Thanks Zenmed for wonderful product.

I used to have an rosacea before when I was in high school and it really makes me inferior every time I am in a group of people. ZENMED® Skin Support System works for me.

If you suffer from frequent flare-ups and the annoying redness and blotchiness associated with Rosacea, do not wait any longer. Try ZENMED® Skin Support System one and see the difference.

As per a report many anti-acne products are known to worsen rosacea symptoms. Medical experts strongly urge rosacea sufferers to stop using these products. Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects many Americans, but it can also spread to the eyes and cause a constant gritty, burning sensation. I have been in search a product that works on my skin, I finally found it on one of acne rosacea review site. I use ZENMED Skin Support System - Dry Skin, and I saw results in weeks! I recommend to go for ZENMED Skin Support System - Dry Skin once. Cheers

I have rosacea and it has seriously damaged my face. I was handsome, but my left cheak is taking on the texture of an orange. It's terribly furstrating. I saw a doc who perscribed finacea, but it was SO expensive and currently, lazer is out of the question. Any suggestions?

Is there any kind of men's aftershave or lotion that works after I shave in addition to the gel i have to apply to my cheeks?

I suggest that you use a brand new disposable razor each shave and shave in the shower. That way you won't need any aftershave which all seems bad for rosacean skin.

Perfume aftershave makes the difference

It is actually something else to use a good perfume aftershave, because this is a product that will enhance the best features in you, and of course, as you might know, our face is our personal presentation card, in other words, our face is the first thing that someone is always going to be looking at, and therefore you want to look as good as possible, and to have a clean shave you are going to need some extra products, and one of these extra products that really makes a difference is Perfume aftershave.

I say that this product makes a difference cause it is really something else what you get from this, in other words, there are many advantages, and trust me, you are going to be loving each and everyone of these differences. For example, when you buy a good Perfume aftershave you might want to start off with the smell, the scent of these products is really important, since the smell of a product like this is also going to be your smell, and trust me, that is a really important factor for whenever you want to not only look good, but to attract someone’s attention because of the way you smell. Other then that, you might like to learn about the benefits, good smell isn’t everything, so I advice you to look for a good Perfume aftershave that will also clear up you skin from dirtiness, this is to ensure that you are not going to be catching a nasty infection due to a cut, nor that you get an ugly rash which is a real common thing to happen to all of us that shave each day. And finally, get a Perfume aftershave that is also going to take good care of your skin, something that functions as a humectant, that is also going to be able to smooth your skin.

Rosacea is a very difficult skin condition to face. Its origins are unknown, making Rosacea skin remedies harder to produce.

I had suffered from rosacea for half my life until I started using the murad redness system. I was always embarrassed about my red flaring face and did not go out often unless for work or other necessary errands. The Murad systen helped calm the flushing and tone down the redness so now I don't have to worry about it. I use the sensitive serum, recovery gel, and clarifying supplements but the other products are good as well. I like the sensitive skin serum a lot because it gives a refreshing feeling to my face. Here's their website so all can try:

Thank you for such an informative and helpful website. I am slightly embarrassed at my rosacea and so try to be sort of anonymous and so have called myself Rosacea --someone else has also done this, so I am not the Rosacea who has already posted on your site and talks about high school and Zenmed.
I live in England and guess your clinic etc is in the USA. I read about IPL and did a google for IPL London and found the Pulse Light Clinic, and saw they did a free consulation, which I am booking. In case anyone else who is reading your blog is interested in IPL, but lives in London, I am putting the link below. I hope this will be helpful rosacea treatment, London

There is no need to worry over your skin problems as long as revitol skincare products are there for you. You can buy revitol skincare straight from your home by logging into an authentic online store selling revitol products. Once you buy revitol cream and properly apply it on the skin, the wrinkles on your skin would disappear instantly.

Shaving creams should not just have a soothing and relaxing effect on one's skin but shaving creams should also nourish the skin like a water to a plant.

Just because someone has a ruddy complection isn't going to stop me from dating them. If you want to sell something, such as a medical service...since you are a doctor...I suggest trying more to relate to your potential patients instead of showing your lack of understanding and personal opinion on how it makes them look to you.

Yes, my husband suffers for this kind of problem and he always use lots of cosmetic creams and so on. We also found out about a Rosacea Toronto treatment and he wants to give it a try, because he had enough of this. He wants to have a great skin, without imperfections... it's very annoying for him!

While rosacea might not be as well known as acne, the fact remains that it is a skin condition that many people suffer from. Rosacea can prove to be highly distracting from a person’s appearance due to the annoying redness that it presents on the face.
