BARRINGTON, Illinois (February 4, 2016) – While it is well established that individuals with rosacea often face significant physical, emotional and social challenges, new studies are now showing this widespread disorder may also be associated with increased risks of cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, certain types of cancer and many other systemic illnesses.

FT. WORTH, TX, May 28, 2015 – Galderma Laboratories, L.P., and the National Rosacea Society (NRS) today announced the launch of Break Up with Your Makeup, an educational campaign and contest to empower those with rosacea to feel more confident in their own skin. According to results of a new national survey, the impacts of rosacea go more than skin deep, with half of sufferers saying they feel unattractive due to the condition. Nearly one quarter of patients (23 percent) also admit that they turn to cosmetics instead of treatment when symptoms strike, and nearly half (49 percent) say they mistook their rosacea for acne before they were correctly diagnosed. Since lack of treatment as well as certain makeups can actually worsen rosacea symptoms, there is a clear need for greater education about this complex disease.
