    Anyone have Lyme disease?

    Guess what? I've had Lyme the whole time I've had rosacea. And I never knew. I had a positive test in 2009 and the doctor FAILED to inform me. Charming.

    Thanks for the dermablend link, Melissa!

    No, actually I didn't research the other shades. Weirdly, I just went to CVS. Totally old-school pre-Internet. I had no idea there were all these other products -- I had only used the foundation.

    Alima minerals

    If the Bare Minerals breaks you out, the Alima minerals is the same minus the bismuth oxychloride. Also, you don't have to buff it in (which irritated my skin), and the brushes are synthetic and...

    Alima foundation and bronzer?

    OK, I finally found a makeup I can handle. It's Alima, and I have no financial affiliation with the company, unless you count the fact that I just sent them 40 bucks.

    Alima isn't cheap, but it...

    Green tea as a topical and oral pycnogenol

    I found a recipe to make green tea extract. I also read that you can just put chilled teabags on your face or use chilled tea as a toner. Anyone try this?

    I know there are green tea creams, but...
