Sensitive skin conditions, such as Rosacea, are real problems for those of us that have them. It’s painful, embarrassing, and in many ways a mystery since most people have no definitive causes or cures. It is estimated that over 50% of the entire globe has sensitive skin. Rosacea alone affects over 45 million people around the world have it.
There are many factors that can contribute to sensitive skin conditions: skin care, nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle. It affects each of us differently and we each have our own triggers and hallmarks. But for most of us, it has a profound impact on how we live and how we view ourselves.
At Riversol, we view sensitive skin management as a journey – as each person discovers the unique combination of triggers and cures that work best for them. We are committed to helping each and every person with sensitive skin on their journey. We are dedicated to improving the skin and lives for people living with conditions such as Rosacea.
This dedication is not about buying skin care. If our skin care can help you, that’s fantastic. But hopefully, we can do more than that. We’d like to provide you with the tools to make sensitive skin conditions like Rosacea an afterthought in your life. And that conversation is about much more than skin care.
