Appearance affecting my job interviews

by Calvin

Did you ever have rosacea? I've just been hit with it and for the first time in my life I'm having trouble with job interviews. I can't make the stress go away and I don't have benefits due to my untimely dismissal. Any ides?

Yvette's reply: Calvin, I'm sorry to hear you are having a hard time with your job search because of your skin condition. Know that you're not alone. Facial imperfections are difficult to hide - as a former acne sufferer, I've had my share of struggling my appearance affecting my interactions with others.

Rosacea is a skin condition that can mimic acne in its appearance. It is benign and often chronic. It's cause is still a mystery to modern science.

Since you are experiencing problems in job interviews because of the rosecea, I would suggest you visit a dermatologist to see if he or she can prescribe you something to get your rosecea under control right away.

Afterwards when you have more time and stress is not a factor, I would do more experimenting to see what may be causing your condition. Here's a few tips in the meantime:

-avoid alcohol, coffee, pastries, donuts, pizza, etc
-consume alkaline drinking water (ph of 7.3)
-eat more fruits and veggies

Good luck, and check back here often as I plan to have more research up on the site regarding rosacea.
