I've tried the rosacea control serum and experimented with a few cream/active mixtures. All made my skin feel good, but nothing has touched the redness yet of my rosacea. I am fortunate and I don't get P&Ps and since I started using Eucerin's Redness Relief Gel Cleanser (with licorice), my skin is not as sensitive nor do I hardly ever get any red itchy splotches on my face.

So, I am soon to put in another order for more experimentation, but I wanted to post this question to the forum in hopes of finding actives/recipes that have worked for others just fighting the redness. Thanks.

Anti-inflammatory cream and rosacea control serum are both great.

I use the anti-inflammatory cream and it has helped my redness.

I think some other people have been using the restoration cream with success too. I have not tried that yet.

For me, personally, 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde is the active that makes the most positive difference  for my rosacea. IF  I do not use it for a few days, I really notice the bumps, redness and irritability returrn. I experimented with Licorice and Niacinamide separately and while they do not bother my skin, the effect so far, has not been as dramatic as 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde.   I am about to mix in those other actives to my 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde to see if there is  longer term improvement. But everyone is different.

Other people have also mentioned EGF and glutathione.

I think EGF has the biggest effect on redness for me.

Recently I've also discovered that 1/4 teaspoon quercetin mixed into 2 tablespoons of oil, applied once per day, helps with inflammation and redness as well. It seems to have the same thing licorice does, but it's a lot easier to dissolve.

Cheers!

To change the subject slightly, Artist I noticed in an old post you mentioned you were giving 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde a try. What effect did it have on your rosacea?

I've tried so many, I honestly cannot remember.    I may not have given it a good try. Either that or it just didn't make my list of favorites (for my particular skin): sea kelp, EGF, Licorice, and Hyaluronic Acid. 

It doesn't stick out in my mind as something that caused any problems.

I may have to add Quercetin to my list of favorites soon.

Cheers!  Artist

Hi Artist,

Which oil are you using to mix with the Quercetin?

Thanks!

Dncer53, how do you use your 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde?  Mixed into canvas as recommended? Do you mind sharing your "recipe"? I can deal with my redness, but I just hate the papules.
