What causes redness and rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that often starts with a tendency to blush often and quite quickly. Over time, rosacea develops into skin redness, tiny bumps and dryness. The exact cause is unknown, but it can be triggered by environmental factors like diet, heat and sun exposure.
How can I color correct the redness caused by rosacea?
Choosing a foundation with a high density of high performance pigments can be enough to cover the redness caused by rosacea. Smooth Liquid Camo with its smoothing hydrating coverage is a great choice. If more targeted coverage is needed in one or two areas, using a concealer with a slightly more golden tone than you usually use can be both high coverage and corrective. Cover Care Concealer provides one coat coverage and gives 24H wear and care with its creamy hydrating formula so you can enjoy targeted, long lasting, nourishing coverage.
Is it safe to wear makeup during a rosacea flare up?
Coverage is safe to wear on unbroken skin. Looking for products that are hydrating, alcohol-free, non-comedogenic and sensitive & allergy skin tested will ensure you can cover without irritation.

Is liquid or powder foundation better for rosacea?
A hydrating liquid foundation will not only look smoother but will also wear and feel more comfortable. Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation is packed full of vegetable glycerin for 24H hydration and smoothing coverage and is the best solution for covering redness and rosacea. The broad spectrum SPF 25 also helps protect from the sun which can trigger rosacea flare ups.
What is the best way to ensure long wearing rosacea coverage?
The key to long wearing rosacea coverage starts with when you apply it. Try to avoid exposure to the heat immediately before application as this can cause coverage to melt off before you have a chance to perfect it. Leave time after using heat tools for your hair or having a hot shower to let your skin settle. Start with a good skin care routine including an SPF. Prime with Insta-Grip Jelly Primer, the panthenol and glycerin will hydrate and condition your skin and grip coverage for up to 24 hours! Next apply your coverage. Smooth Liquid Camo is the perfect foundation, and applying with fingertips is best as it prevents you putting too much pressure on sensitized skin while you build your coverage. Finally, set with a luminous setting powder and setting spray combo. Illuminating Banana Powder and Power Setter are perfect. They lock in coverage for up to 16 hours and still leave the skin looking fresh & radiant.
