Hello everyone.  I need some help here.  I was diagnosed with rosacea two years ago, but know I had it before that, anyway...My face does not get red, more pink, my big symptom is burning.  When my face burns so does my eyes, ocular rosacea.  My face use to be oily but now since rosacea is here, my face is now dry, boy how I miss oily skin.  My big problem is that I cannot put anything on my face without it starting to burn, and I mean anything.  I guess this can be normal for some with rosacea.  I have even tried olive oil on my face and that burns.  The only thing I can use is emu oil, but oils do not seem to hydrate as well, AND I just found out that I now have melasma which more spots are coming since the rosacea. 


I have tried so many sensitive skin moisturizers, everything burns.   I have used the Eucerin, Aveeno, neutrogena, HA with water but that doesn't seem to hydrate as well and leaves my face white.  I am now resorting to the fact to let my face burn (it does go away within an

SO my question is..what should I use to heal my face?   Is there really such a thing as products that heal the face???  I know ceramides ? they say you should be careful with with rosacea skin.  I am so lost...

I think I need something with just one, two, three at the most ingredients that hydrates the skin. 

Sorry this was so long, and really appreciate you reading.

Maybe some kind of homemade face mist with Hydrophilic actives? I feel for you. This must be terrible

I took this off the rosacea forum submitted by "Acclouti"

I would start with just a sea kelp base mixed about 50/50 with an oil. Jojoba oil is popular for rosacea. I use Emu oil. Neither are comedogenic. The oil is important, as rosacea skin must be moisturized. Then start with a small concentration of any of the following:

Chamomile
Green Tea
Caffeine
Calendula (only if he does not have an allergy tendancy)
Niacinamide
Liquorice
Hyaluronic Acid
Grape Seed Extract
Centella asiatica

I had the same problem last year.  I found that the anti-inflammatory cream really helped me.  If you can tolerate silicones, the monistat chafing gel is almost all silicones and it can be used on top of your products to seal them it.  This may help heal your skin.

You may be able to use Hannah's emulator oil or european base too.

Thanks everyone!  I am going to try the sea kelp mixed with jojoba oil, green tea and niacinamide.  I ordered sea kelp to wash my face with before but did not know that you could use it as a moisturizer.  Will sea kelp make my face sticky or make a gel film on my face?

 I have thought about the anti-inflammatory cream, although I think it has chamomile or calendula (one of these) in it and that is not good for my melasma. 


Thanks for the help!!

FYI . . . I do not find sea kelp to be moisturizing at all.  In fact, it leaves a film on my skin, like eggwhite.  

Are you applying your emu oil to a very damp face?  If not, then if you try it, you might like the additional hydration you get from that method.  Oils by themselves are not particularly hydrating to the skin.  When my skin burned like yours, the only thing I could use was squalane, so I can relate to your situation and I am sorry you are going through this. 

Also, omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) taken internally was a huge help to my dry skin problems.

Thanks LuvToSmile.  



Yes, I do not find *any* oils very hydrating so maybe I can try them with some water like you suggested.  My face needs a cream, but my rosacea does not like them at all.  I do not have acne rosacea, I have vascular.  If I could make a cream (not a gel) with only a few ingredients I would be set.

I am thinking about trying the Rosacea Control Serum.  I am also going to try the Green tea just not sure which one.  I do not like to use caffeine on face as that can cause rebound flushes in rosaceans.

How does one make a simple cream, anyone?  Thank you!

Rosacea girl,

You seem to have a variety of problems and in the past we at SAS were not successful solving that kind of situation.

I encourage you to see your dermatologist.
