My Rosacea isn't too bad, however, I would like to know what the other members use in the line of makeup! I have heard alot about mineral makeup, and how this is supposed to be good for sensitive skin, and that it covers well!! Anyone have any advice or favorite products to recommend??
LOL, Kathy

" Hi!
I am a MK consultant, and recommend that you only use emolients... Like a Ponds cream idea... Do not use any type of scrubs or beads... This will irritate your skin. Use emolient cleansers, moisturizers for your skin type (dry, oily combo) and definately use a high spf on your skin. I use 45 and I find it keeps my rosacea at bay. The pollutants and sun can make your skin worse. You need to provide a barrier with your skin, and the elements. Any skin care regime is good, as long as you don't scrub, rub, or have any irritation. Be gentle, and lubricate your skin to creat a barrier. Even Ponds cream is awesome. Remember, NO ABRASIVES..... EVER!!! Do not try abrasives ever, because your face will swell up! foundation is also good for a barrier, but some people don't like it. I recommend using a powder foundation after you moisturize for a lighter feeling on your skin... Have a good day! "

" by the way, my doctor says I have rosacea, but metro gel cream didn't work for me, and I became allergic to doxycycline... I find sunscreen and emolients are my best friend... I also have Hashimoto's. I started MK for the discounts and to help other women with thier skin. I dont' want to enlist women, just empower them... :-) "

" I use Clinigue stayfit makeup Shell color and it goes on very nicely over my sunscreen, oil free and doesn't bother my skin at all, nice coverage, I only put it on the skin that is red, very little, it then looks most natural. Good luck. "

" I am using Bare Minerals and it is the best makeup I've ever used....great coverage! I use Hope in a Jar moisturizer...the combination of these two products have completely turned my skin around and I look tremendously better. I went to a new dermatologist for another reason, and she looked at me (with makeup) and told me I didn't have rosacea...LOL....she also told me not to use the makeup I'm using....I guess the "experts" really don't know everything. I'm glad I tried the stuff I'm using now before I asked the derm about it.....Good luck to you.... "

" I recently started using a mineral makeup and it has worked fine for me. I believe it is in the Maybelline line. I have had success with most any makeup I have used with my rosacea but I am careful to investigate the product first. "

" I am recently diagnosed& went & bought all new make-up & it's helped. I think it's also important to replace make-up periodically because it grows bacteria after time when it comes in contact w/our skin. I bought a Neutrogena compact for sensitive skin that's awesome & then bought Physician's Formula Mineral powder (foundation just makes my skin more oily & red). Both work great & i've already been told it's looking better by co-workers. Also bought Physician's formula mineral eye make-up just to ensure i wasn't adding old bacteria back to my skin & my eyes don't itch as much as last week. I didn't realize about the facial scrubs though-that was good info from another member! I thought that would help but her suggestion makes perfect sense. "
