Dita Von Teese On Conquering Rosacea
You wouldn’t know it by looking at her, but Dita Von Teese actually had a bout with rosacea that she fiercely overcame in true glamourpuss style.
This may not be necessarily encouraging to all the women out there with less-than-amazing health insurance, but her number one advice? Find an excellent skin doctor and make sure he prescribes you only the best in skincare products, according to The New York Times’ T Magazine.
Her other big piece of advice, which she passed down from the miracle-worker who cured her rosacea?
“He said it doesn’t matter what moisturizer you use,” Von Teese told the magazine. “Just make sure you put it on right after cleansing, while your skin is still damp. That way your pores can absorb it while they are still open.”
This rings true for all women, no matter what their current skin status, but may be especially helpful from women suffering from psoriasis or rosacea. Make sure to let your moisturizer sink in for at least five minutes prior to applying makeup to ensure best results.
1. I thought that rosacea is a chronic condition; ie., one has “bouts” but the condition comes and goes. It’s not curable.
2. She needs to have her excellent skin doctor explain how pores operate.
3. Applying moisturizer to damp skin isn’t exactly a news flash. This is the most basic of skincare knowledge.
Dita Von Teese did not have Rosacea. If she did, it wouldn’t have been “cured.” There is no cure, and her skin appears as lily white as Snow Freaking White’s.
