I have oily skin but it gets dried out really easily. Blotchy red skin and i breakout really really easy. My skin is uneven and i have an orange peel look. I want to try these products but i dont know where to start. I just started v-beam treatments and i go for my second treatment Friday. I have rosacea all over my face even above my eyebrows, ears and down my neck and chest. My neck and chest is the most embarrasing because i cant cover it up with makeup. Someone can talk to me and i flare up. This is what i currently use
La roche posay Biomedic purifying wash. The toleriane foaming creamy cleanser i just tried and my redness looked better but after a week i had huge painful cysts. I ordered philosophy purity last week. La roche posay Biomedic antibac protection at night Paula choice bha 1% in the morning but i think it is causing more redness. I just started using it 2 days ago trying to clear up my skin from the toleriane clinique stay true foundation I also take fish oil tablets and i do think they help with my flushing of my neck and chest a little. My derm is going to try vbeam on those areas too. It was $450 for my face and it will probably cost me $700.00 this time because he will be including my neck and chest. I an having a hard time affording it. Tears. I have broken caps on my cheeks, chin, nose and chest. Can someone help me get started with this skincare. it is too confussing

I have rosacea too so I know the problems. The anti-inflammatory cream has done wonders for my skin. I use it twice a day.
I would start slowly by introducing one product at a time. I have been successful with this strategy and now I am using many of SAS' products. I will be introducing more in the future. You need to find a gentle effective cleanser too. SAS offers some good choices. You do not want to strip your skin because it will cause a flare. Do not use anything with alcohol in it. You also need to use a good SPF because sunlight can aggravate rosacea. I never used Biomedic products so I cannot comment on them. When I had vbeam, I had to stop exfoliating for a couple of weeks. The BHA is an exfoliant so it may irritate your skin.
