Some may think the redness on the face of these powerful men is due to alcohol, but there’s a more ordinary explanation, and it is common to many (acne & rosacea).
This is only one of the challenges facing those with the debilitating skin condition rosacea (pronounced rose-ay-sha). Many have never heard of it and assume their red face and flushing are merely a sign of ageing.
While there are undoubtedly more sufferers over the age of 40, there are still others in their early 20s or 30s who have not been diagnosed - surprising given that it affects one in ten of those in the UK.
Rosacea can be treated effectively in most people. However, there are no quick fixes, and if it cannot be cured it is vital to find a way to keep it under control.
