Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon conquered acne in her 20s and thought she had put her skin problems in the past. But when she hit her 40s her skin started flaring up again. She tells PEOPLE, “I thought, ‘Oh here’s my acne back…” But after resuming an anti-acne routine, she found the condition did not disappear, in fact, it worsened and after a trip to the dermatologist, she discovered she had rosacea.
To combat the condition, Nixon started taking a prescription medication, then slowly weaned herself off of it and got her skincare routine under control. “With rosacea, you don’t want to throw a curveball at your face — you want to do things that are gentle, sensible and predictable,” she told PEOPLE. For more about her experience with rosacea, watch the video at the bottom of this post.
