    Default Rosacea and Seborrheic dermatitis

    Hi,

    I have Rosacea and have made an appointment for a cleansing facial tomorrow. I explained about my Rosasea and that the products should be suitable for it.

    She suggested a particular name of a treatment, so I requested a brochure so that I could do more reasearch when I go home.

    Seemingly this range of products is suitable for 'seborrheic dermatitis'. Due to the fact that I am not very familiar with this, can you tell me if this treatment might also be suitable for Rosacea? It contains: Papaya extract, papain and glycolic acid.

    I would very much appreciate your advice.

    Thank you,
    Jinny

    i would be careful with glycolic acid because it could be hurtful to your rosacea

    Facials when you have rosacea are a minefield. I would immediatly turn bright red if any sort of thnig is done to my face. There are not many 'normal' products that can be used.

    If I wanted to pamper myself I would go for a pedicure instead.

    Hi,

    Thanks again for your replies. I just thought I would update you on how it went.

    I told the girl who was giving the facial that my skin might not be able to tolerate the product. She was so good. While the mask was on, she kept an eye on my skin. After 5 minutes she noticed my skin was getting slightly red so she removed it.

    After the facial, my skin was less red than when I went in (that has never happened before :-)

    Thanks again for your advice!
