For Natalie Flores, persistence paid off. Like many individuals with rosacea, she discounted the occasional redness that began occurring when she turned 30 years old.
“Just after 30, I noticed I would get that flushed redness, but it was pretty mild. I’m part Irish, and many people in my family had it,” Natalie said. “When I was closer to 34-35, my face started getting redder. It felt like sunburn, but it wasn’t. Then I got bumps and pimples.”
