    Default moisturizers / sunblocks

    Can anyone recommend a good Rosacea-friendly moisturizers? I've tried Dove and Cetaphil moisturizers, but they both make my face a little more red immediately after application.

    And what about sunblocks? I'd love to use one, but I'm afraid of making things worse.

    thanks.

    Can you tolerate oils? If you can it might be worth trying jojoba oil.

    I like emu oil and also aqueous cream. Sunblock I haven't had much luck with. The zinc based products are too occlusive for me.

    Default Moisturizers and Sunscreen

    I have very sensitive (but yet still manly) skin and I use:

    Toleriane Moisturizer
    Vanicream Sunblock for Sensitive Skin

    It is totally trial and error to find something that works for you. I went through many.

    After shaving with my rusty Bowie Knife I recommend...

    Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion

    for some reason it doesn't turn my face red at all after applying it.
    (think it may have different ingredients than the original Cetaphil)

    I use CeraVe cream and lotion and Eucerin cream and lotion.
    I alternate depending on the level of moisturiser I need with the creams being better for night and when my skin is drier and the lotion when I need less moisture.

    For sunblock I use Vanicream sunblock for sensitive skin with spf 60.

    It might take time to find what works best for you.

    Ive been using a mixture of 2 things: Eucerin Redness Relief Daily Perfecting Lotion SPF 15, and Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Plus Intensive Repair. Im rarely out in the sun so I dont know if it will work as a sunscreen if you mix it like this, Im mainly just using the perfecting lotion to reduce the look of redness, and it helps a little. It doesnt completely get rid of the redness, no way, but I would say it diminishes it by about 20%. It will make you look white though so if you dont already look like casper from staying inside alot, it may look weird on tanned skin. I mix like 1 drop of that (very small drop, it looks green on the skin if you use too much) and then a large drop of the Intensive Repair, mix the 2 together and put that on 1 side of the face, then repeat and put on the other side and the nose. Too much of it on the skin makes the skin look flaky when it drys.

    Default moisturizers / sunblocks

    Earlier this week, I just started using Aveeno All Calm Redness reducing moisturizer with SPF 15 in it. I use it in the morning and at night. I also use the Aveeno All Calm foaming wash beforehand.

    So far the best moisturizer I have used! It does not irritate my skin at all. I would get out of the shower and hate having to put on moisturizer. My face would itch and burn it was a mess, but this is not happening for me with Aveeno All Calm.
