I'm using GM Collin products (cleanser, toner, cream), but it seems not to moisturize my skin. they are still more than half bottles, so I cant just them and buy new ones. Would you please recommend any to reduce rosacea and acne as well as moisturizing the skin? My rosacea appears when I have ice coffee and sweet treats consistently. Thank you very much

Why did you choose those products? Anything in the ingredient list that attracted you?

You are lucky you could identify some of the triggers for rosacea. At least you can avoid these.

This are the SAS products that may help you with rosacea. Try one at a time and see whether they help.

Rosacea control serum.
Base cream with 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde.
Celestite spritz (only for emergencies, NOT for continous use)
Anti-inflammatory cream.

I think the dryness is probably due to excess salicylic acid (1% in cleanser and 2% in cream-gel) and maybe alcohol. I went to the salon and she made my skin feel soft and smooth that I have ever felt before. So, she recommended me to buy them. I'm just jealous to see my friends who have flawless skin and look so gorgeous. Also, what do you think about using Pumpkin peel thing? For the Rosacea control serum and Anti-inflammatory cream, will they be able to keep my skin moisturize cause I think the main purpose for those products is to treat rosacea? I know I need to treat rosacea but hope not to dehydrate my skin. One more question, what kind of eye serum do you think it good? Under my eyes, there are spots look like goose bumps. How to get rid of them? Again, thank you very much

Lots of surfactants and essential oil. Your skin is probably just irritated. Arnica and esesntial oils can be allergenic, so there may be a bit of that.

The fake science would be funny but it is mostly sad.

Return everything and give your skin a break, it needs it!

Thanks for the advice and will follow it. Then what kind of cleanser and toner can you recommend? Also, I want to know if the Rosacea control serum and/or Anti-inflammatory cram will be able to address the dryness issue too? Another concern is that under my eyes, they appear goose bumps, any product can get rid of it? What do you think about Pumpkin peel? Thank you for taking your time to address all of my concerns

You don't need a toner, and it is easy to overdo the cleansers.

Try our no nonsense cleanser.  It is mild and will not dry your skin.

Never look at your skin under a magnifying glass. If you want smooth skin, use Photoshop.

I will order as you recommended

Cleanser and make-up remover
Canvas base cream with 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde. ( can I use this cream to apply in the eye area cause some ppl say that eyes need to use a separated cream)

Can I use Pumpkin enzyme peel? Probably will be once a week as a mask.

I'm just 23 and this skin issue makes me avoid social relation. Thanks Hannah

Maybe you are listening to much to what "others" say, like "( can I use this cream to apply in the eye area cause some ppl say that eyes need to use a separated cream)"

Nobody looks at your skin the way you do. If it makes you avoid social relationships, the problem is not in your skin.

The products that Hannah has recommended for your rosacea are truly excellent.  I used the Canvas base cream over the rosacea serum every morning and every evening and in about 3 months time, my rosacea was vastly improved. Not cured...but only a minor problem after years of having flare-ups.  You have to give these products time to work and you have to be faithful in using them.  Use the mildest cleanser your skin can handle and pat your face dry.  Don't rub.  Without actually seeing those "goosebumps" under your eyes, I would be merely making a guess as to what they are and how they got there.  But, they could be "milia".  These are tiny little white or light pink bumps just under the skin of the very delicate and thin under eye area. Keep the sunscreen away from the under eye area and also any heavy concealers.  Using products that are too rich for your young skin can cause these bumps.  Usually, they just go away on their own.You can try and keep that undereye area cleared of cosmetic products for a while and see if they just dissolve on their own.  SkinActives "I -bright"cream would be a good choice for overnight treatment once the bumps clear up. I think  you just need to give that specific area a bit of a rest from products.  Could also be an allergic reaction to eye makeup used on  your lashes or upper lids. Hope this helps.
