The Serum That Saved My Skin By Rachel Naud “What did you do to your face?!” my bestie asked over one of our daily Face Time calls. “What do you mean?” I said, self-consciously touching my cheeks? “It looks ….. so good!” As a 42-year-old with rosacea, I had grown accustomed to having a red, often blotchy face, especially after having a shower.  Having lived with the skin condition for 12 years, I could easily pinpoint exactly when my face would flare up from the heat, cold, wind, spicy food and even stress.
