I'm new to skin actives, having only ordered the rosacea serum and premade eye cream in the past. I want to try to make my own beta glucan serum and am considering mixing it with the MNS, as I'm a little scared of actually making my own serum base. Has anybody else used beta glucan? What about MNS? I think they can be mixed...
 
Why beta glucan? The best results I've ever had from any rosacea product was when I used Origins Plantidote serum twice a day. It resulted in reduced flushing,  virtually no bumps and no hives ever over the period of a year. From what I can figure out, one of the main actives in it is beta glucan. I've used prescription finacea (azelaic acid) in the past- found that it only burned and dried my skin and didn't help very much with flushing, pimple formation or the hives I get when I experience a prolonged flush. Skin Actives rosacea serum kept the hives at bay but hasn't helped the flushing or bumps. I'm about 2/3 of the way done with the SAS serum and so wanted to make and order before it ran out.
 
Any help would be much appreciated.

I love, love beta glucan. It is late and I am tired but if you go to the May newsletter and scroll to the bottom of the page, there is my favorite recipe using beta glucan. I am sure you can substitute MNS for one or more of the ingredients, but it is a very easy one with few ingredients.

I will check in tomorrow and try to see if anyone else has some other ideas for you.

I mix a bit of beta glucan into my MNS serum and it works just fine, thickens it a bit so be careful with how much you add.
