Acne affects young adults the most, but roughly 30% of sufferers continue to be affected in adulthood. One in 10 people in the UK are also affected by a condition called rosacea (pronounced rose-ay-sha) and the likelihood is that we all know someone who has it.

The typical symptoms of rosacea include: facial redness (most commonly covering the nose and cheeks), spots, extreme sensitivity to temperature changes, as well as broken veins, flushing and blushing. It's a condition that can be treated and usually the sooner, the better.

Written by a leading expert, Acne and Rosacea: The Complete Guide takes the reader through diagnosis, the symptoms and causes and offers practical, sensitive advice on treatment options and the very latest in skincare advice.
