Greetings everyone. I am happy to report that I am on a pretty nice SAS regime. I have slowly managed to introduce the following: 1. Cleanse w. SK 2. Put a tiny dab of rosacea serum (I used to get dry by it but for some reason putting less on and keeping it in the fridge really helps). 3. HA + distilled water. sometimes I dab ELS or Rosehip on the HA serum.

Now, I am placing an order because I am running out of my old Shiseido eye cream and also want to order the sunscreen as Im spendin 4 months in Puerto Rico. I am looking for suggestions on a night cream that might be nice and rosacea friendly. I like the HA because it's so light for the day but wonder what other suggestions are out there for the evening?

Other stuff I have here but yet to try: Licorice/ antiox booster (i use it on a body cream I make but not on my face)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I have rosacea and dry, sensitive skin. Hannah's anti-inflammatory cream has really helped my skin.  I use it morning and night over MNS or LMC.

Just to clarify.  My rosacea is pink on my butterfly area...I was thinking of  the Marine Cream for the night or maybe making my own.  I guess I want something richer for the night. 

Thanks for the response!

The anti-inflammatory excema cream is WONDERFUL for rosacean skin, at least it is with mine and it is moisturizing as it is in a cream base. I also use a little extra moisture over it but i think you will love it, it has completely changed my skin. I just got the rosacean serum today and want to use it in conjunction to see if I can completely calm my skin down. If you try it, let us know how you do with it!

Coffee cream's nice, too. I'm not sure about rosacea though.

Goofey---Thanks.  How do you use the inflmmatory cream at night?  Is it moisturizing or is this why you need to add to it?  Could I add ESL to it?  Hannah, would this also help w. seb derm?  I'm in Puerto Rico for the summer and my seb derm seems to be returning (not sure why.  This also happened the last time I spent a while in the island). 

Girlpaint--Coffee cream sounds good.  I have not read about many Rosaceans using it though.  I have read about people w. Rosacea liking La Mer but I wonder how moisturizing it is.  My skin tends to go dry on the cheeks, specially when in the Caribbean. 

Have had a couple of deaths in the family in the past few weeks (gramps, step mom) so have not placed my order yet, obviously.  Still working on my list.  Thanks for all the feedback.

Susecita,

Sorry to hear about your losses. You obviously have a lot on your plate. I find my SAS lists to be a work in progress.

Does humidity affect your skin? Just returned from hot San Diego and noticed both of my young boys developed pimples on their faces, something they don't normally do. California is much more humid than our home in Alaska.

Sondra,

Thanks for the thoughts. My skin really responds well/poorly to weather changes. Right now I'm in Puerto Rico for 3 months (not humid but tropical) and I have suddenly developed some papules and even whiteheads. Now, this could also be the crappy sunscreen I have been using or a million other things but it is rather frustrating because I don't get these back in PA. The other thing that I noticed is back is the itching from my sebderm on the forehead. Grrr. I was wondering about adding the Anti-Inflammatory for those new symptoms.

I really want a night cream just don't know what. Right now, I am leaning towards the Anti Inflammatory. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcomed as this is the last thing Im figuring out.

Here is my order thus far:

SeaKelp
Pumpkin Peel
Sunscreen (the big one!)
Bright I (I have been dying to try this one)
Fill in w. yet unamed night cream.

Anything else you guys suggest I should add? Im always weary of trying too many things at once. Right now in my shelf: Seakelp, HA, Rosacea Serum, ESL, Rosehip Oil (which I left in PA dang and am thinking of purchasing again as I like combining w. HA and alternating w. ESL), AntiOx (Do not use it on my face as of yet). I even have a tube of Liquorice extract that I have never used as I want to see improvements w. the other stuff first.

My routine is pretty simple:
AM/PM
Wash w. sea kelp
Add Rosacea Serum
Eye Cream (Shiseido right now....soon Bright I)
HA+ one drop of either Rosehip or ESL (my skin tends to be on the dry side on the cheek area)
Sunscreen only in the AM'S

Thanks for the feedback!

Start thinking about medications and photosensitivity. Some chemicals can lead to bad photosensitivity, so a medication (taken orally) that is OK during the winter may give you trouble in the Summer in Puerto Rico.

Some essential oils can also a problem like bergamot.

I personally would go easy with product overload since you are having issues with rash and/or allergies. Too much at once and you'll never be able to figure out what's causing your issues. Focus on the clearing the rash first (allergy testing?) then start slowly with pretty mild, calming products.
