Rosacea affects about three times more women than men, so it's no wonder that some celebrities have to fight this condition. Find out more about celebs with rosacea and how they deal with this serious skin condition.
What is Rosacea?
Usually, the onset of rosacea is between the ages of 30 and 60, but this chronic skin condition can affect men and women of all ages.
First symptoms include redness of the cheeks, forehead and nose, and without the proper treatment, it can evolve and cause small bumps on the skin and even a red lobulated nose.
Celebrities with Rosacea
The most well known face of rosacea is ginger actress Cynthia Nixon, known primarily for her role in the hit TV show "Sex and the City". Nixon works closely with the National Rosacea Society, so she brings exposure to this disease that remains a mystery even for 80% of the people affected by it.
Common triggers of rosacea, including drinking alcohol and eating spicy foods, are relatively easy to avoid once you're diagnosed and celebrities with rosacea certainly make the effort to treat the condition the right way.
"I try to have fans near where I exercise, and I avoid things like jogging out in the boiling hot sun. Stress can be a trigger, too, so things like yoga, not only help my body but they also help me have balance and calmness", Cynthia Nixon explained to Shape.com.
Other celebs who have rosacea include Mariah Carey and Renée
Zellweger, both of which manage to keep the condition in control and
still look stunning.
Comedian Rosie O'Donnell is another one of the celebrities who have rosacea, and Cameron Diaz is another celeb who suffers a mild form of this condition.
