My rosacea skincare routine has been a topic of conversation on my instagram. I think it is about time I list what I use on my face, besides what I eat. Years ago when I was diagnosed with rosacea I researched what skin routine would be best, since my current one seemed to be making my rosacea worse or just hindering the healing process.
There are products what should be avoided that will cause the rosacea skin to dry up. Those items are: Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Propylene glycol, Fragrances, Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptus oil, and Peppermint oil. This can all be found here: Skin Care.
I was right. My current skin care routine had Witch Hazel and Eucalyptus oil in it. I also felt that my moisturizer which was jojoba oil with lavender and tea tree essential oils was also hindering my healing process of my face.
Upon further research, I was able to find a whole new skincare routine. This routine has changed over time due to the hiking up of prices for these products. I then made the decision to make these products handmade instead of buying them from a company.
I know you don’t want to make your own products.
This is what works for me. (I am also giving you my recipes)
I wash my face with Lady Rosacea’s Foaming Facial Wash. Then I use Lady Rosacea’s Clear Skin Facial Serum. Once that is applied, I put the Bee Folks Tranquil Lavender Hand Cream on my eye area only. I swear that this works beautiful wonders for my eyes. They are no longer dry and I have yet to have a swollen eyelid. I also look far younger or maybe that is due to the lack of sugar I eat. After the application of Bee Folks I rub in Lady Rosacea’s Spot Treatment. Once my face is dry, I apply The Wonder Seed’s Facial Cream on my skin. One should never go without moisture unless they want to see wrinkles and dry flaky skin.
Two products I purchase. These products are the best on the market with really great ingredients. You skin will thank you after using them. The Wonder Seed is on instagram and they are always willing to comment on a photo of their product. I have asked questions of them to and they have responded quickly. I am waiting on their zinc sun block.
I hope you have found this post helpful. I know a lot of you are wondering what I use. I know Rodan and Fields reps are probably wondering to, since they love to offer their high priced skin care routine to me. I just don’t like chancing my skin to some high priced routine. No Thank you!
