Break Up with Your Makeup – Medical Skincare Solutions

Disclosure: This post was part of the Break Up with Your Makeup program sponsored by Galderma Laboratories, L.P. through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Galderma Laboratories, L.P, all opinions are my own. You should discuss any medications with your doctor.

Good skin begins with good skincare. You can have all the makeup in the world but it is like a band aid on a broken bone, it doesn't solve the problem. Until your skin is taken care of, no amount of makeup can treat it. Occasionally it takes more than just skincare products to solve skincare problems. Personally I deal with breakouts. I am convinced that my hormones play a major role in this, and I have finally found a birth control that can keep my skin breakout free. Now that my hormones are under control my skin is clear. 

Other skin issues can be more complicated to resolve, for instance rosacea. Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition that affects millions of Americans. Rosacea can consist of bumps and pimples. Your face may easily flush, and it can be uncomfortable. Thankfully there are medical treatments for rosacea like one of Galderma’s products, Oracea® (doxycycline, USP) 40 mg Capsules.

Oracea Capsules® is the only once daily pill for the treatment of the bumps and pimples of rosacea. Oracea Capsules works from within to target and treat the inflammatory lesions of rosacea in adults.
Because we all have "tough skin days" Galderma is asking readers to submit a no-makeup selfie and share how they stay confident even on tough skin days. The Break Up with Your Makeup winner will be granted and all-expense paid trip to NYC for the New York Film Festival later this year. Enter here:
