If you have rosacea, you may be thinking that you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing blush on your cheeks. As if you needed anything to make them any redder, right? However, Allure magazine insists that it’s still entirely possible to sculpt your cheekbones with blush even if you have excess redness. The trick is choosing the right color blush.
Before you pick a shade that will work, you might want to try alleviating your rosacea symptoms with a product like Starter Kit for Rosacea or the AntiRedness Calming Serum from Exuviance. It will help reduce the appearance of blotchiness and redness by soothing your skin.
If your rosacea is slightly purple, a peach or bronze blush will work best to counteract the color. If your skin is more pink, a muted rose will work best. Lastly, if your skin is as red as it gets, blush with a hint of brown will do the trick. Blush should have the shade you’re looking for.
As long as you apply a bit to the apples of your cheeks, your glow will look like a natural flush, not like an extension of your rosacea.
