The National Rosacea Society is getting behind a national contest called Break Up With Your Makeup, which is designed to educate the public about the signs and symptoms of rosacea and how to proactively manage the skin condition. Rosacea patients are encouraged to submit a no-makeup selfie (a close-up photograph of the face) to show others how they stay confident even when they are suffering a flare-up. The winner will receive a trip for two to the 2015 New York Film Festival.
