Rosacea is a skin condition that affects both men and women and it's not to be ignored as it doesn't go away and get can get so much worse if left untreated.

This common chronic skin condition is usually found on the face and eyes. It can look like pimples, with redness and broken capillaries with people in middle age, from 30 to 60 years with fair skin, blue eyes, suffering most. The most significant environment trigger is the sun as skin is very sensitive to exposure. Always wear SPF 50 on the face and neck. It's even better to wear large sun glasses and a hat to shade the face altogether. Altered microbiome of the skin and gut health can really cause flare ups. Changes in the seasons and diet seem to affect people also.

Unfortunately there is no cure for rosacea, but you have to learn to manage it and reduce flare ups by recognising the signs and symptoms. In men especially, rosacea can cause thickening of the skin on the nose, making it appear bulbous. This can be reduced with correct treatment and home care. Fragile capillaries require regulating, soothing and protecting to get good results. Products can soothe, replenish and protect the skin.

Sothys has created the Clearness and Comfort line to help strengthen the circulatory system of fragile skin, reduce redness and increase protection against aggression with rosacea skin. Targeting skin with permanent redness and visible capillaries, the advanced formula features breakthrough polyphenol technology known for the ability to protect and soothe with powerful antioxidants benefits. Sothys selected polyphenols of hazel leaf and mint to alleviate symptoms associated with rosacea.

A soothing facial, it's a great way to get started on the road to repair.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
