      third Weleda also
      and good advice from Vienna about going back to basics

      La Roche Posay as something i have been wanting to try myself
      so good to hear recommendations (good prices on feelunique also)

      the other thing is using a pure plant oil
      i'd recommend cold pressed Rosehip oil, it is very healing, soothing and mosturising
      i'd chose to buy from a brand like Trilogy, Pai or Neals Yard for purity

      I have rosacea and I would also say to avoid essential oils although I have found SBC Propolis has been less of an irritant than most.

      I would go for something bland like Avene which has a specific range for redness or La Roche Posay -they both do a nice thermal water spray. I also like Dr Organics Dead Sea Minerals from Holland and Barrett.

      Also, I find that using a micro fibre skin care cloth is much kinder than muslin or flannel when I get a flare up.

      It would help if you knew exactly what is causing your skin to go nuts.

      I have mild roseaca and know rose is a big no, enzymes or anything with acids.

      There is a brand I used to use when my skin went nuts. Pure Argan Oil, no scent or other ingredients in it. If you ebay Billy in the tree was the seller. Essential was a brand I bought very very gentle, its online only from their own site. But I would just wash my face in luke warm water. If you skin is inflamed, go to your doctor you might need a steroid cream.

      I am coming to the end of a 3 month course of antibiotics as my roseaca was going nuts in one place only but nothing was working and the doctor decided to try the antibiotics. It took 6 weeks of taking them for it to settle down in the beginning.

      Or anti-biotic gel, which has worked for me in the past for a quick fix.

      great input from Maymorgan
      and i echo the 'finding the culprit'
      it is one thing managing the symptoms
      however, your skin/body is trying to tell you something important
      try to see if you can tune in to what it is saying
      if you see what i mean
      best of luck

      p.s. luckily, there is lots of choice out there with no nasties
      but if i had issues right now, my first emergency port of call would be Pai ...

      Just wanted to add - if you're looking for ideas about what to do with your diet - maybe try researching anti-inflammatory diet... might be a good starting point.

      Fab advice already. I would also recommend aqueous cream to ditch the soap for the time being until things have settled. I had a bad reaction to shampoo and I have very sensitive skin. Rozex was prescribed for Rosacea as my skin developed angry areas and needed an antibiotic treatment, this cream worked like a magic wand for me. Also, wear gloves in bed, white thin cotton manicure ones, to prevent putting hand cream on your face whilst you are sleeping. Lanolin, Aloe Vera, mineral oils and perfumes are my reactive culprits. Hope you find yours very quickly.

      When I have had problems in the past I have used plain water, and found Avene cream for senstive skin calmed it down.

      I'm sure there's mineral oil in Avene grovesy.
