“The feeling out there is if there’s any facial skin imperfection, something must be done about it,” said Elaine D’Farley, the beauty director for Self magazine, whose annual new product survey yielded more anti-redness products this year than last. “Facial redness is the new cellulite.”
... “I see rosacea everywhere,” said Dr. Jonathan Wilkin, a dermatologist and the former president of the National Rosacea Society, “Millions of people are out there who have rosacea but don’t know it.”
Which raises a question: If you don’t know you have rosacea, and are not bothered by it, then does it help to be made aware of the ailment? After all, rosacea is not life-threatening, and only life-hampering for those who consider their symptoms problematic.
