Today I talk about my rosacea and adult acne skin care struggles. Whether you have rosacea or acne or both, they both have to do with inflammation in the body. So I wanted to include both in this video and share my story and experience with you along with some acne and rosacea skin care tips and tricks that helped me. I also talk about treating rosacea and acne internally through lifestyle measures. All of these things worked to help me achieve clear skin. I hope you find this video helpful.

Most recent research has shown that mast cells and certain TRP-channels, that for example adjust your temperature-feeling, are overreacting for rosacea-patients. This overreacting leads to an inflammatory effect on the skin. Mice with rosacea symptoms could actually be cured by stabilizing their mast cells. However, mast cell stabilizers aren´t applicable for humans that easy. Nonetheless, someone has registered a patent for curing rosacea by stabilizing mast cells. Even though this might take some time, if they even manage to develop such a medicament, it might be helpful to know that mast cells affect rosacea.
Mastcells get activated by psychological and physical stress, certain (especially unhealthy) food and a few other things that you can look up in the internet. Additionally, histamine (alcohol contains a lot of it) is a messenger of mast cells. Though histamine is most likely not the reason of rosacea in my case it helps to reduce the histamine level to reduce my rosacea-symptoms as well.
I´m not a doctor and probably I´ve messed up some things, but overall it should be right what I´ve written. Papers that are following this approach get a lot of quotes by further research. This is a really good sign that this approach is a good one!
(Sorry for my english, I´m not a native speaker)
interesting points ,if anyone else is searching for
ayurveda rosacea treatment
try Mackorny Facial Miracle Blueprint (just google it ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.
i got rid of my rosacea disease (acne) with african back soap and the redness from rosacea I got rid with a leech therapy. At first I was very skeptical, but I tried and it worked. You can already see a success with the first time. Overall, I have made 3 therapy days with one to two weeks distance. I don't have acne and red face anymore.
Vanicream saved my skin and I have oily Rosacea. I use finacea too and I still get little whiteheads. I think I’m intolerant to any sunscreens and they are always mineral sunscreens and I got many Papules and pustules . I went to an esthetician while I was at the dermatologist office and showed her my Paula’s Choice mineral sunscreen for oily skin and she studied the ingredients and she said it contains pore clogging ingredients. That was my primary sunscreen at the time. ELTA md mineral sunscreen also makes my skin angry.
I am getting these weird red white bumps on my nose from 4 months. I went to 2 dermatologists and they said it's rosacea. These weird bumps take 7-8 days to dry and vanish. Plz help. What should I avoid for these bumps according to you? Applying clyndamycin gel only.
Stephanie. Your teen/adult skin health history is (eerily) exactly like mine. I mean EXACTLY. Even the part about your mother's skin. I am so glad I came across your video and I am looking up everything you suggested right now!
+Stephanie Marie True.. But i didnt thought you will tell me the all story since childhood till now.. Anyway.. Seems i have rosaceea.. So.. I cannot go to work anymore.. I'm stressout.. Can u help me out?! Any advice?! You see.. I was rude and now i ask for ur advice...
I am 55 and have rosacea which started attacking my nose, redness to the point of purpleness, swelling, cystic acne, large pores, etc. It's been a battle and NOTHING derm's offer help. In my opinion, dermatologists are worthless. I've been seeing improvement through a GFDF lifestyle, following the Anthony Williams "Miracle Medium" books and also using Dr. Bronner's almond/lavender soap but this past week I started a regime with Beautycounter. It's a sample kit that has really helped with the redness and breakouts. It's pricey and has some ingredients that are reactionary to me so I'm looking to Pai skincare. The ingredients are pure botanicals and are not encumbered with any synthetic/chemical filth. Have you any experience with this brand? There are other rosacea sufferers on youtube who swear by Pai Rosehip serum, so I figure the rest of the line is worth a try as it's formulated specifically for Hypersensitive skin.
It can help I think. But I'd try diet triggers first before you go the hormone route. I'm no doctor but I've dealt with TONS with my career and the majority of them don't isolate diet triggers, which are very real for many people.
Asa guy I'm in the same boat. Diet was never spoken of, it was doxycycline at 25, 50 then 100. It was then injection and then surgery. Then I thought, maybe spicy food is doing this for me. I know I can't eat spicy food, now I know how people that can't eat cheese feel like. looks like everybody's different their reaction.
It is always so helpful to hear about what others have tried for rosacea. I have such a bad case of it. My triggers are def sun, wine, exercise, spicy food, colloidal oatmeal, dog dander, and the list continues.. I’ve finally found two products that are helping- an oil (you are so right) and a cleanser that my face loves. When I eat a clean diet my face is certainly happier- so thanks for the motivation. I really enjoyed this video.
I'm 26 and I've struggled with adult acne for around 3 years now. Before that my skin was near perfect. Now I have cystic acne around my mouth and jaw. My blood tests didn't show up any major abnormalities so of course I've been frustrated in what could be causing my acne. This video has helped a lot. I'll have to look at my current skin care routine and also my diet, as I do consume a lot of gluten, dairy and refined carbs and sugars 🤔
Thanks for the video
Wow, thanks for all the info! I just suddenly at the age of 63 woke up one morning with breakouts all over one side of my face and freaked out, then it began on the other side and on and around my nose. I don't have access to a dermatologist, so started reading online about natural helps. I make homemade kefir and saw one video of that helping and the importance of probiotics for rosacea so I actually just spread kefir all over my face one night and left it on as a mask for 15 minutes, washed it off and put coconut oil on my face. the next morning my face was pretty close to clear. You could still see faded marks but my friends said they could not even see them. Since then I have been doing a routine of cleansing my face, spreading kefir on my face and then blotting it with a paper towel, then spreading coconut oil on my face and if there are breakouts I put tea tree oil on them. I haven't cured it but it is keeping it under control so far and quickly takes care of any new breakouts. It is very frustrating to have this problem suddenly when I never did before. I have no idea what caused it or what triggers it. I also drink kefir daily for gut health and follow a low carb diet. Still looking to see if there is a complete cure for this. So depressing to have. :(
Your video is very helpful and comprehensive! Have you tried LED Light Therapy or an LED facial? I have done quite a bit of research into this. However, I’ve found the information to be incongruous in terms of what spectrum of light is most helpful for Rosacea. (I have Rosacea, Subtype I but I do get the occasional cystic-like acne bump in places). I would love to hear your thoughts on LED light therapy. Thank you very much for sharing!!
My goodness! I can completely relate to everything you just discussed. I will certainly study your list of products below. Thanks for mentioning this video to me.
Unsure of what is causing my current acne rosacea flare up, I reluctantly began Minocycline today after not needing it for about one year.
I wanted to share that I can use GloBeauty Essential Cleansing Oil for makeup removal. (I had tried Clinique’s Take the Day Off, but it burned my eyes.) Also, EltaMD’s Foaming Facial Cleanser (sensitivity-free) does work wonders for my skin texture. I can follow with Timeless 20% Vitamin C Serum and KNUTEK’s Whipped Oxygen Cream. I was ecstatic that these worked for me. Perhaps this could benefit someone else who struggles. For some of us, it’s challenging ...even to try new products.
Thanks again for sharing. Your complexion is gorgeous. ☀️
I have severe rosacea redness, bumps, cysts and postules. Some of them look like pimples with a head, but they are red in color and have a small head, and no matter what I do, they simply won’t go away. They are not getting bigger, but certainly not smaller. My doctor has me on Soolantra at bedtime, and Sulfacetamide Sod 10%. The Rosacea stays under control for the redness, and if some pimples appear, they will get smaller. Some of them are like hard cystic that look like they have a hard pus. I’m afraid to break them because I fear more scars. I also had severe acne when I was a child that left me with a lot of scars. Also dealing with very large pores. And sleeping with a CPAP mask being a side sleeper I think makes my pores even bigger. Can you advise on a good foundation, concealer, and something that reduces puffiness and brightens the eyes? Beleive it or not, I’ve used the It Anti Redness, did nothing, tried the Clinique anti redness, did nothing. Now I tried the It eye cream, and I got a pimple on my eyebag! I also get red dots. My doctor says they are red moles. I asked him what I can do about them, and he said “Nothing, a lot of people get them”! I’ve kind of given up on doctors. I tried Rose himps supplements once, and I had a bad reaction, I got stiff muscles and I had to stop. Please help!
I’d first look into changing doctors. Second I’d try some of the things in this video like assessing ingredients you’re consuming internally. You would need a corrector and a full coverage foundation like Double Wear or Bare Minerals Bare Pro and a good concealer like Dermablend. Dermablend makes nice products for problematic skin. I hope you figure things out! 😘
Stephanie, thank you for all of the valuable information. I too have rosacea and can relate to everything you are speaking of. I am very happy that I found your channel and will continue to watch your very informative videos. PS, I love your dog!! Reminds me of a dog I had when I was younger.
Thank you thank you thank you! I suffer from adult acne and have tried different dermatologists and products without much success. Probably a nutritional issue i am thinking after seeing this. But lots of good tips to try! Thank you again.
I would love to see a sensitive skin foundation video. I have roscea too. Can't do anything like waxing or threading. I have to be very careful with moisturizers, and tried a few oils but nothing I tolerate yet (no to tea tree oil too). Will investigate your suggestions. Thanks!
Back when I used it, I slowly ramped up from 2x a week, until my skin got used to it, to 3x a week, 4x, etc until I was using it nightly. I used it (waiting several minutes) before moisturizer, after any liquid treatments like serums, etc.
Hi Stephanie! What type of doctor was your friend? I think I’d like to contact a doctor to go through that diet. Pretty sure I have a gluten intolerance. I’ve been to an allergist but this particular one told me there’s no blood test for it, which I didn’t think was true. I was thinking of reaching out to a stomach doctor or some sort or a nutritionist/dietitian
Hi Katie! Yes, you should see a gastroenterologist for your stomach issues if you want to get to the bottom of things. Mine had me tested for allergies in general as well as for fructose and lactose allergies, did the blood test for celiac as well as an endoscopy. I'd had a colonoscopy the year before because of something that happened that had me in the ER. When those things came up negative, he put me on the FODMAPS food elimination diet and had me add the group with wheat/gluten back into my diet last. That's when I reacted badly. So while I'm not celiac, my body doesn't process it correctly and I react terrible...an intolerance. You can try FODMAPS yourself by researching and finding a FODMAPS resource online if you like or start with the gastro route and see where you land! Good luck!
I know I'm viewing this quite late, but thank you so much for this video. I've been fortunate in that I have flushing rosacea and have not had to deal with acne for the most part. Mine doesn't flare, it's always there. My skin has become very dry and my face is covered with broken capillaries. Those suckers are hard to cover! I'm a medical disaster. I've had a heart attack, I have diabetes, and some autoimmune problems (fibromyalgia), i.e. inflammation, arthritis, pain, brain fog, etc. I'm just starting to eliminate refined sugars, refined carbs, and processed food. I've started making bone broth and I swear that's the best thing that's happened to my arthritis in many years. We're moving to another city where I'll have access to a pool so I can try to work out. Working on a whole new me! I can't tell you how encouraging this video is for me.🌻
Pretty much what I said in the video...I altered my eating a lot which made the biggest difference. I used a gentle cleanser and moisturizer (vanicream Lite lotion) and used Differin Gel at night and Finacea in the morning and eventually moved both to night time, alternating them every other night once things got better. And I realized I didn't need the Differin anymore after a while and stopped it.
Please do a top product video for rosacea!!!!!!! I struggle so bad! My rosacea tends to be more of the tiny pustules and super broken capillaries. I have been struggling to find a good foundation for not just focused areas but for general redness all over. Green correctives have been useless and I don’t like the heavy full coverage makeup, nor the mineral makeup. It makes my pores waaaay more notable. The struggle is real.
Hi I’ve had rosacea since my 20’s and I’m 41 now and just recently delevoped the acne that comes with rosacea, I had a bad flare up in March, I started using metro gel most of it is gone but I still have some small bumps still there it can be covered with makeup, anyway my point is the Dermatologist recommended antibiotics for three months along with the metro gel, what was your experience with the antibiotics? I’m a little on the fence about it
They worked well for me to help get rid of existing bumps and inflammation. The key is to keep them away with what you do while on them and after so you don’t stay on the antibiotic cycle. Sometimes you do need something to get rid of what’s there though to stop the flare up. That’s been my experience...but I’m not a doctor! Good luck to you!!
If it helps any - the people I know with rosacea are highly stressed types in general (not because of their skin) and drink alcohol daily. Maybe you started getting this condition when you were going through a stressful time in life? Then the skin gets used to having it.
Hi! Stress is one of the many triggers of rosacea which can cause a flare up if one has the underlying factors that predisposes them to it. There are many other triggers that can initiate a first flare as well (many I also mentioned in the video) like diet, sun exposure, extreme hot and cold temperatures, etc. Alcohol can also be a trigger. These are triggers but not causes of the condition. It’s kind of like having migraines. Some people have them while others don’t. Stress may trigger someone’s rosacea or migraine for the first time but it wasn’t the underlying cause of it, as they have it in their system already. 😘
Thank you so very much for this video. I struggle with cystic acne. Perfect skin until age 37 or 38...I'm going to be 47 in a week. This is some great information and gives me a couple of different things to think about or try besides skincare and creams. I do take spirolactone and although it hasn't been the answer to my acne prayers, I continue to take it because it's been great for my blood pressure (go figure, lol.) I have actually wondered about diet. There's no question mine is hormonal (PCOS), but i am worried about taking too much hormones due to my family history and risks of cancer...but I am trying to figure out steps I can take to try to help my condition as much as possible- minus hormones or accutane. Skincare has been a struggle for me but I do think I've gotten close to finding a collection that works well. I can say you are sooo right about 'acne' skincare...for some, I know it has worked for them, which is great...but inevitably when I use it my sensitive skin goes haywire. Some have worked for a few weeks, maybe a month or two...but it never provides long term results. Gentle is the way to go. I do use a retinoid (not retinol) at night, but I pair that with a gentle, hydrating cream and it seems to work well.
I honestly felt compelled to type this way too long post (sorry) before looking at your recommendations so you might have mentioned these, but I can't recommend Skinfix enough. It is a Canadian skincare brand sold online at Ulta. They are amazing. The products feel soothing and healing on my skin. I still struggle a bit with my acne, but it does seem to be improving a little. I guess the better way to word it is I'm confident the products aren't making it worse, or causing major flare ups.
A very gentle but effective sunscreen that is working well for me is from Skin Laundry. Another line sold online only at Ulta. It's $25 or $30 (fairly resonable).
Again, thanks for the video. Your skin looks amazing. It really does give me hope.
I struggle with mild rosacea and clogged pores. I used to have mild acne with a couple of cysts now and then but after I completely eliminated all dairy and processed foods, I stopped getting underground zits. Still working on clogged pores and redness ! Thanks for this video !
I have recently been told (as an aside) by my dermatologist that I have rosacea, I have always sometimes looked pink lol. Well I panicked yesterday because I had fine red bumps sprinkled over most of my face. I only realized earlier today that it was likely from my first adventure in derma rolling a few days ago. Should I even be doing that?! Thank you for the great video!
I’ve always had redness in my face and acne prone skin. I’m in my late 40s and exploded in cystic acne out of the blue. After many failures I tried Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Mask. I used it daily for a few weeks but it was almost immediate that I saw a difference. Now I use the mask 3x a week and I haven’t had another breakout. I used OlayProX Acne which was sulfur based until they discontinued it. Also the Rodan&Fields Blemish cleanser has sulfur. For me it looks like sulfur is the key ingredient I also use the PTR AHA/BHA Acne clearing gel as part of my regiment. I recently started using the Dickinson witch hazel toner and its help on my redness. I do feel products with sunscreen promotes my acne. Great video!!
great video!! I have rosacea. I found Prosacea at Walgreens this past month and has helped me a lot. I put it on morning and night. I am anxious to see how it does in the summer time. I first noticed the redness and was diagnosed 8 years ago when I was planning my wedding. The intense stress of the planning caused me to break out all the time. Heat during the summer kills my face. The dermatologist always wants to prescribe high cost creams that I just can't do. This video is great and gives me some things to try
Where was this video 6 months ago! LOL
I hav this exact problem now for about a year. I thought it was acne and between that and the anti aging products I was using my skin erupted. It was so angry! I’m now on easy sensitive skin facial products along with the Finacea foam. It has been life changing.
I am not a perfect eater either, but this video has really inspired me to do better and keep an eye on the foods that bother me. Thank you so much for this video!!
Amazing video! You are so relatable and down to earth which makes your videos such a pleasure to watch. I have struggled with skin issues most of my life. I want to give a big amen to how much diet affects your skin! My skin has never looked better since I eliminated dairy, gluten and sugar from my diet. I wish more doctors would discuss this with their patients. Thanks for putting this info out to help others!
Spironolactone didn’t help much for me (I take it for blood pressure). I have switched to keto and intermittent fasting and that helped my skin, about 70%. Retinols have helped, but I’m starting tretinoin.
Thank you so much for this information. I have rosacea and absolutely hate it!!! My triggers are Carmine, alcohol, being too hot and being embarrassed (oh and BTW - I do get embarrassed when my Rosacea flairs up so you can see the bad circle there). I have to say I call the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness concealer cream my magic in a jar. It really does help cover my redness and I use it every day under my foundation. Curious if anyone has tried laser treatments for rosacea? I am thinking about going in for a consultation. Thanks again.
Stephanie, loved, loved, loved the video!! I too suffer from Rosacea and Lupus therefore it's a life struggle to have my skin under control. I think you are the first youtuber that has addressed it. THANK YOU for your time and well made videos. By the way, I've missed your daughter!!
Thank you so much! She's a very busy girl lately and is focusing on school and activities first right now. I think she filmed something this weekend though. I'm waiting to open my FabFitFun box still! LOL!
Thank you for this video....it is so helpful. I have rosacea but not acne. I still struggle to find a sunscreen that doesn't turn my face red. I will try some that you listed. I look ridiculous when I work out and people always say....wow, you're really red! I have my skin care worked out and would really like to use a retinol product but even the drugstore ones and a gradual approach turn me red.....sigh....will keep trying.
I have the skin form of lupus so I deal with redness on my face too. I also have it on the cheek area so I always look like I have blush on but it's not a fresh, pretty look. I would love to see some good color correcting products.
Thank you for this video !!!
I’m turning 50 in 2 months and struggled with constant breakouts mostly my late teens and 20s and actually always had that super fair Skin (where even in gym class as a 6 year old I’d be so red in the face from exercise) until I finally took accutane. For 5 years after I was blemish free and perfect ...since then I have the sort of skin that I can get stopped by strangers and get compliments ...but I have been diagnosed with rosacea in the last 5 years... it’s very unpleasant mentally and painful irritation even when it doesn’t look that bad .... I know the winters and heaters are especially harsh for me ... can’t drink alcohol especially red wine , can’t use any vitamin c which leaves me out of rose oils and any exfoliating types of products whether aha or peel or retinol just the worst. I use purpose soap and cerave... so any recommendation would be helpful I may add I’m not oily I’m more dehydrated...so I fear for my texture because I can’t find good products to nourish.. I have metro cream but only use it occasionally because I feel it’s drying... what do you think of the hyaluronic acid gel craze? It’s partially why I use cerave because it’s in there ... but in its own ? Do you use have a favorite... thanks again!!!!
I LOVE HA! But I do find you should usually use it with moistened fingers or a freshly misted face so it won't suck moisture from your skin. It draws moisture from somewhere and you want it to be an external source. I think Skinmedica's is one of the best on the market b/c it helps us regenerate our own HA again. 😘
Another biggie is soy, both topical and eaten. I also have rosacea and migraines and a crazy gut! I have given up gluten, soy, avocado (a true allergy), most dairy and beef and pork. The last time I had beef my back and scalp were covered with folliculitis. That took almost two months to heal. I have several contact allergies that are in lots of skincare and makeup. Bees wax, propylene glycol, fragrance, BHT and several others. It’s a struggle but my head, gut and skin are soooo much happier. Hope this is helpful for someone. Thank you for starting the conversation. ☺️
Thank you so much for this video Stephanie. I have flushing all the time. Lifestyle is by far the most important for my triggers. Seems like we share many of the same triggers. Look forward to reading others experience too. Take care.
I sufer from the same issues as you do and also cannot understand why dermatologists do not mention diet. It's ridiculous. The microbiome health has to do with the health of every part of us. I am vegan and low fat and gluten free and it has made the world of different. Animal products are HIGHLY acidic and also contain zero fiber. Two terrible things for our health. At least this horrible situation forces us to research and become more knowledgeable. Great video. THANKS! PS I DO use Retin-A.
Hi Stephanie! Great concise video as always. I wanted to ask if you ever looked in to niacinimide causing inflammation in your skin. You said vitamin B is a problem for you and I think niacinimide is a form of vitamin B isn’t it? I ask because I went to an esthetician to the stars in Hollywood and she took me off niacinimide. She also took me off of ascorbic acid and retinol for now. Also have you heard of issues or do you have issues with tomatoes and peanuts? Also I agree gut health is so important and would love to see a sensitive skin makeup video. Thanks again!
Hi Margie, Niacinamide is Vitamin B3 and helps improved the moisture barrier in the skin and has anti-inflammatory properties which help battle sebum production. It does many beneficial things and has actually been shown to reduce rosacea symptoms b/c of how it works in the skin. All forms of vitamin B work differently, which is why I showed the two specific types in the video. Some people may be sensitive to specific things of course, but for the most part, niacinamide has been shown to be good for sensitive skin and rosacea. I, personally, don't have any issues with those two foods. :)
Great video! I always like learning about other people’s journey. Having endometriosis means I’m always battling with my estrogen levels. (Endo feeds on estrogen) My skin has looked SO good for about 2 weeks, but my hormones will never stay consistent so I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop. My skincare routine is compulsively consistent and gentle, so breakouts are nearly always hormone related. When I do get a pimple it’s the most painful cyst you can imagine. I can’t wait to have a kid so I can be done with this dang uterus. /rantover
Hello Stephanie and everyone , i was looking for the Maelove sunscreen on their site (to check the ingredients) but i cannot see it. Isn't it strange? Did you order it from Amazon also? I am always a little scared to order beauty products from Amazon. Thanks so much.
Thank you so much Stephanie. I usually prefer to buy directly from the company's site or at least check the ingredients on their site . But if you confirm the link , I will order from it . I have been looking for a GREAT mineral sunscreen for months (cannot use chemical ones any longer since i did start Retin A) and still did not find my holy grail. They all seem to break me out after a few days, but.. fingers crossed then :))). Looking forward to the upcoming video on the Glow Maker .
Hi Christina, what can't you see? The sunscreen or the ingredients? They've sent me some things that I've been trying and absolutely loving. I've been communicating with them back and forth. So let me know and I'll ask them about it. I order from Amazon ALL THE TIME! But I can say that MaeLove is a good solid company and their products are developed by people at MIT with a lot of R&D. I love the results I've gotten with the Glow Maker and love the sunscreen. I'm talking about the Glow Maker in an upcoming video shortly. Bottom line: solid company. 😘
Acne as an adult has been the most frustrating thing... I’m 49 this year and had to go the route of spirolactonate to help because menopause has introduced a whole new aspect of acne I had never seen before. It works great with the cystic acne on the jawline but then I still get pimples from time to time. I use differin and clindamycin gel to help... switching to retin A next when I run out of differin.... such a pain !!! Lol great informative video!!! 😘😘
I have rosacea and I'm managing it since September last year. My number one trigger is spicy food then prolong sun exposure, change of climate and sudden change of emotion. I agree with you in working with a dermatologist. We did change my skincare regimen & products and modified my lifestyle. I switched to hypoallergenic skincare and makeup products. Azelaic acid (Skinoren) is working well on my Type 1 rosacea and consistently using sunscreen with SPF50 helps a lot too. Ice cold compress works well on me to tame my rosacea flare ups. Thanks Stephanie for sharing your journey and the product recommendations! It helps a lot.😊
I've struggled with cystic acne & roseacea my whole life. It can be so frustrating & embarrassing. I have acne scarring but it's not too bad on my face. Great video & tips.
Food elimination has helped but there are days that too makes me insane. Those things are easy to identify. It's the facial products that sometimes are super hard to identify.
I would love to see your top 5. Thanks Stephanie.
I have been able to keep my rosacea at bay by eliminating wheat (which also causes me to be congested) and limiting sugar to a minimum. Thankfully coffee does not affect me, the world is not ready for a decaf Annette!
Hi Stephanie :-) I don't have these issues but I just have to say that I think this was a great video, very well put together. I have psoriasis and I get it almost everywhere on my body, thankfully so far I've only had very few on my face but one year my whole neck was totally covered, it was like one huge psoriasis plaque. So needless to say I can't use a lot of certain products. I really enjoyed the video and I'm sure it will help others. Have a fab day 😊💜😊
I've been using Clinique's skincare line specifically for rosacea it's called "redness salutations" I believe. I have had wonderful results. It's a cleanser, moisturizer and a green daily base with spf 15 I believe. They also have a foundation in their rosacea line too but I find it a little too much coverage for me. For the most part I've got my skin in check now and don't like to pile on a lot of heavy foundation. I really don't want anything too much more than a tinted moisturizer.
I also use Drunk Elephant's TLC night serum. It has done wonders for the texture I have experienced in the past with rosacea.
Really enjoyed your take on this subject. Thoughtful, insightful, and practical. I'm 48 and I'm currently breaking out like I'm 13 again! Very frustrating, embarrassing, and not good for the confidence level. Yougave me some things to think about and pay more attention . BTW, nice seeing you on WUIM live chat!
This was an excellent and in-depth video. You definitely hit the nail on the head regarding inflammation and stress as being major factors. I believe I have rosacea but not with the redness; it’s the little bumps on my one cheek & forehead that don’t go away. I used to think it was just clogged pores. I also believe I may have ocular rosacea but my ophthalmologist is still on the fence about it. I’m thinking a dermatologist may be more qualified to diagnose it. I’ve done research on it...this can be a very challenging issue since it’s not too common where the eyes are concerned as it seems to come and go in my case. Thank you for sharing your personal story and enlightening so many ppl; you’re very knowledgeable and seem to have a better grasp of this than many doctors, especially when it comes to looking at this internally. 👍👏
Stephanie Marie Thanks so much Stephanie! I am vigilant when it comes to my eyes since I have vitreous issues and my dad had glaucoma for 20 yrs. I go every 3-6 months to my ophthalmologist...and like you recommend, I will seek another opinion since this doctor cannot give me a definitive answer. I figured it couldn’t hurt to discuss this with a dermatologist as well. I appreciate all of your helpful input; it is greatly appreciated.💜
A good ophthalmologist should be well versed in ocular rosacea and able to diagnose...I worked in eye care for several years. Dermatologists are all about the skin while ophthalmologists should know anything and everything about the eyeball and all that pertains to the glands, lids, etc surrounding the eye...even ocular rosacea. It wouldn't hurt to ask your derm about it but you may need to switch physicians in order to get a proper diagnosis. I wouldn't mess around with it though because it can be damaging to the cornea. And you only get one shot with your eyes so you need to take care of them! Thank you Susan! 😘
Stephanie: Do you know about or have any experience with Tamanu Oil? I have had cystic acne and had great results with Tamanu Oil. As I also have eczema and the oil helps so much with that. Thank you for the video and the great information. I just turned 67 (yikes!) and still battling acne. I plan to try some of the products and regimens you recommend! Yes, I would appreciate recommendations for foundations appropriate for sensitive skin, more affordable ones, please as my income is limited.
Love this video. I am 44 and deal with breakouts and combo/oily skin. Your skin looks amazing with no foundation. My breakouts tend to be hormonally triggered, but i have to be careful what products i use because i am sensitive to a lot of ingredients.
I think that diet triggers are much worse now days due to all the genetic modifications they are doing to our fruits and vegetables. Love this video. I would love to see products for use on sensitive skin.
Hi Stephanie. Thank you for such a great video. I, too have cystic acne which started in my late thirties. I tried antibiotics but they didn’t help and I don’t tolerate them well. What did help was Spironolactone which is a drug used for congestive heart failure and kidney disease but is also known to help hormonal acne. This was prescribed through my dermatologist. I also have Celiac Disease and while eliminating wheat and gluten helped, I still wasn’t quite right. I learned from my gastroenterologist that most Celiacs are also lactose intolerant. By eliminating most dairy it cleared up my skin and gut issues.
I am so glad you are sharing your story. I've had acne since I was in 5th grade (mid-40s now). Sooo much prescription medication, oral and topical. Currently relatively treated at the moment, but I'm looking to begin changing to less aggressive, drying skin care to "nicer for me" skin care. This video is going into my watch later so I can draw upon it in the next few months. Xo
