Cynthia Nixon Talks About Her Skin
Modells soccer cleats mercurial superfly 4 i got a chance to chat with Cynthia Nixon (recently Tonynominated Cynthia Nixon, by the way!) about a skin issue that I am constantly asked about by Prevention readers and that both Cynthia and I struggle with: Rosacea. Some rosacea symptoms seem like acne or like they’re just a factor of being fairskinned, but if you can figure out that they’re rosacea, you’ll have some new treatment options on your hands. Cynthia told me more about her skin modells soccer cleats struggle during our conversation:
Tell me about how you discovered you have rosacea.I had had acne in my teens and into my 20’s, and it was nightmare until it went away. Then in my 30’s it seemed to start up again, so I went back to using antibacterial washes, intense scrubs, and heavy duty astringents, and while that worked fairly well for the acne, it wasn’t working this time, so I just did it even more intensely. I went to see a derm for a mole about 5 years ago and she said, “By the way, you have rosacea, My face is under the hands of makeup artists and beauty experts all the time, and no one had ever suggested this as a possibility. That’s part of why I made my PSAif people has said anything about this to me years ago, I would have saved a lot of time and money.
See Cynthia’s PSA here that she made with Galderma Laboratories:What did you do for your skin?My doctor gave me a prescription and talked to me about my skin care routineeverything I was doing was the opposite of what I should be for rosacea! Now I use no scrubs and am really diligent about moisturizing. I’m big into under eye cream. I love the brands Dr. mercurial superfly 4 Hauschka and Peter Thomas Roth. I also really like using argan oils for my face. Stick foundation is my goto for makeup, but now I only have to wear it in a few places where there’s redness or a blemish, which I think makes me a look a lot better than when I had to cake it on everywhere.
Did you doctor talk about what triggers rosacea flares of redness?
She did and, of course, they were all my favorite things: mercurial superfly 4 red wine, spicy food, and hot baths. I actually didn’t give those things up, I just don’t do them the night before a big event now.
Can you talk about how your skin effected you personally?
It’s hard to put your finger on it, but certainly personally and professionally, it’s really hard to feel good about yourself and walk out there in life or on the camera when you have bad skin. Now when I mercurial superfly 4 get compliments on my skin, it makes me feel really good and like I’m doing something right. And I can get away with a lot less makeup! When I want to go to town with a makeup look I can, but not because I’m trying to mask something, it’s because I want to. I get to choose to do that now.
So readers, tell us, do you have rosacea or a red skin issue, too? Any genius fixes to share with us? We’d love to hear them mercurial superfly 4.
