Wasn't quite sure what to title this thread, sorry [smile]

When my rosacea is flaring, even my usual Canvas Cream stings and causes redness. It's not the fault of the cream (or anything else I usually use, like emu oil, ELS or Restoration Cream)--it's just my skin freaking out.

I want to leave my skin alone to heal/calm down, but at times it's very dry. I just ordered rosehip oil, but was wondering what has worked for others? 

Currently just applying a plain HA serum I made and some aloe gel.

Would ELS help? Maybe ELS with some 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde?  Celestite?

Email me and we can discuss options.

Suggestions anybody?

Hi! Sorry I haven't returned in a bit.

Even though it stung a bit, I did layer on the ELS. While my skin didn't magically calm (stupid rosacea) it did feel much better the next day--less dry and tight.

I'm back to using aloe and HA serum right now during the day when I'm off, along with ice packs, but will try ELS again tonight.

Hi. Just wanted to say, I kept trying plain oils on my face, and guess what? I found safflower oil is working well for now, on my irritated skin. I guess there is an oil for everyone [smile]

Ordered ELS anyway and will use it later on.

I choose oils by their fatty acid composition. ELS has a mix that includes lipids that help our skin, in general.

I did not find anything re. safflower oil that could explain is benefits for you, but nothing against it either [smile].

I have rosacea and in the past have used, on separate occasion, Vit K (topically) and topical caffeine - So, I ordered one of each to see if this form of K & caffeine will work any better. Have you guys heard of using those two for rosacea?

Thanks for writing.

Caffeine will not help with rosacea, although drinking caffeinated drinks does not seem to be a problem (the heat of the drinks is).

Vitamin K is not associated with rosacea but it can cause allergic dermatitis. So unless you have a good reason to use it, you should avoid it.

I was wondering how you came to think that these two ingredients could help with rosacea?

Have you tried our rosacea control serum? Ethoxybenzaldehyde in ELS?
