How Outer Beauty Affects Others

Although there is a saying that, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," we could not actually control it if we lose our self-confidence simply because we know that our looks have something unusual. I hate pimples and acnes and whenever I get them, I make use of topical treatment to make the lumpness subside.

But have you heard of rosacea? It is chronic condition characterized by facial erythema or redness as defined by Wikipedia. Although, it is harmless unless it irritates the eyes, treatment can be made to address the inflammation.

It says to be a curse of the Celts and run among the Caucasians and from the European descents however, studies show that anyone from different ethnicity can acquuire this. Sad thing, however, it generally affects the women at peak age of 30 - 60 years old. According to, symptoms include:

  • Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead.
  • Small visible blood vessels on the face.
  • Bumps or pimples on the face.
  • Watery or irritated eyes.
Poor looks can actually affect self-esteem and with that social skills among others are highly affected because of facial or skin conditions. It is however, nice to know that treatment like rosacea treatment is there to address rosacea among other illnesses.

I have friends and family who simply have worse facial condition and I always feel sorry that they have to spend extra simply because their condition is different from the others. So, any treatment and therapy is always welcoming if it means improving their condition and their self-esteem.
