@Stace126:  I have been where you are! I always had great skin and when I was diagnosed with Rosacea by my dermatologist I couldn’t believe it. I’ve used the prescription creams and a number of different products, but what I have finally settle on that works best for me is Clinique. They make a redness solutions kit in travel-sized so you can try it. I think it’s around $45 for a 3 step set, which lasts about 4-6 months. It’s really worth it!

Recently I’ve added Clinique’s Mild Clarifying Lotion. It’s a toner type product that you apply with a cottonball. It works as a very gentle exfoliant, because I was having dry flaky skin in the “flare up” spots. Then I added Moisture Surge (also Clinique) for summer because my skin is drier in the summer, making the rosacea worse!

Here are some other tips that you may or may not be aware of:

Avoid really hot showers…heat tends to flare Rosacea.

Common triggers are alcohol, stress, tomato based products. There are several others but these affect me most!

My dermatologist advised to avoid anything with Retin A or Retinol and almost all anti-aging products because these irritate. Avoid microderm exfoliants or anything with microbeads.

Moisture is really key!

Sunscreen! Neutrogena broad spectrum for face is what she recommend.

Let me know if you have any questions or want more info!
