MrsUPS:  Yes, it is a primer. MUFE has a green one. The almay one she’s speaking of is wonderful. Very light, kind of like the consistency of serum.

MrsUPS: yep, it’s a primer.  I love the almay primer, as alpinebride said, it’s really light, goes on beautifully.  for myself tho, i generally use the MUFE clear primer.  these days most of my itching is tied to using any scented products on my face or from some of my brushes.  i never have flaking anymore, but it was a problem when i was younger for sure.

Has anyone tried the new prescription cream mirvaso? I saw a derm last week who diagnosed me with rosacea- I just have flushed/red cheeks and nose– i haven’t tried the cream yet but it’s a cream that calms redness dramatically for 12 hours I believe? Anyone have experience with it??

http://Www.mirvaso.com has photos and more info. I’m going to try it this week and see how it goes– I also flush or get red hives on my chest when I’m nervous & I’ve found that a spray tan or self tanner helps tone it down by covering a bit. I may try MAC face and body foundation or a yellow powder foundation to tone down my chest area too. The more I worry about it, the more likely I am to break out in Hives. Lol!

Yes meee. Ugh. I’ve just got off like four months of antibiotics in an attempt to calm it down, but I’m not certain they’ve done much.

I did get prescribed some camouflage makeup though, to wear underneath my normal makeup that seems to do the trick, but it’s not really perfect because it gets a bit flaky I guess? I dunno.

MrsUPS:  I’ll be visiting MAC and Sephora in the next 2 days to try and find some good products for my engagement photos Friday as well as my wedding and I’ll post some updates!  I went to Ulta today (where the manager put Tarte’s foundation on me a couple of weeks ago, which ended up flaking) and she apparently hates me and basically said there was nothing else I could try and that I could go elsewhere. And I only had tried one foundation in the past.  I’ll also add, that the first time I went in and mentioned my rosacea, she made it a point to imply that I was self-diagnosed (and not by a doctor, which I have been) because I didn’t “look” like I had rosacea. Definitely not going back there…

MrsUPS:  I certainly thought so, and I was really confused as to why she has been so unfriendly to me.  I’m a very friendly person and I always say thank you and try to let people know I appreciate their help.  I fully intended on buying foundation, lipstick for myself and gloss for my bridesmaids, and possibly primer there.  Not anymore!  Or at least not when she’s around, which she seems to be EVERY time I go in there.  Okay, not trying to thread jack, sorry!  🙂

My sister has bad rosacea.  She has recently been using a home IPL system (the kind for hair removal), and it has considerably reduced it.  Look into this treatment.

I have had rosacea for around 6-8 months now and I totally sympathize  :/ I can’t afford to go to the Dermatologist, and from what I have read, the stuff they give you sometimes doesn’t even help! I get flare ups from eating things that are very sugary, spicy, any alcohol consumption, if I am warm or tired, and during PMS time(which is right now, oi…). I have tried just about every over the counter and home remedy possible. This isn’t exactly make-up advice, but I will tell you what has worked for me and what has not. 

First off, I am fair skinned and have naturally dry skin, along with the rosacea. I bought MAC’s “Complete Comfort Creme” after reading so many positive reviews. It claims to be developed specifically FOR rosacea, but I think it’s lies. For my skin, at least. My skin broke out even worse after using it. So that was $40 down the drain.

I got some Prosacea from Walgreen’s for $10, it works sometimes. Not when I have a super bad flare up, but on a regular day in the morning I will dab some on before work and it seems to control it fairly well most of the day.

Another thing I found that worked, this may sound odd, is before bed, applying a light layer of neosporen to my really bad areas. I will wake up and see a noticable difference.

The best thing I started doing, however,  is making a turmeric/yogurt/honey face mask. THIS IS THE BEST EVER. Within 2-3 nights of using this, my absolute worst flare up faded away. Turmeric is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, so it really does a great job here. Yogurt moisturizes and kills bacteria, and honey is a great natural moisturizer as well. It can get messy and stain the skin(or anything else) so you do have to take proper precautions, but it seriously has been the only thing that has helped me. I have also been taking turmeric supplements in pill form.

After I remove the mask, I use coconut oil. I know a lot of people say it’s not good for you to use if you have rosacea, but I really haven’t had any issues with it. I’ll apply my mask maybe 3-4 nights a week and follow it with the coconut oil as a moisturizer. I also apply coconut oil to my face before foundation in my makeup routine and it seems to do a decent job preventing the foundation from getting all dry and flakey looking. 

Hope any of these will help, of course it’s all a gamble and everyone’s skin is different. Good luck!
