    Question Best cleanser?

    I am thinking of trialing another cleanser.............which one's do you use?

    My main issues are flushing & burning & I am in the UK.

    Thanks

    Honestly? Honey is usually the safest option for me.

    From the drugstore (chemist ), I like Aveeno Ultra-Calming Cream cleanser & CeraVe Hydrating (cream) cleanser - CeraVe is not available in the UK, but I don't know about the Aveeno.

    Online, I get two cleansers from Garden of Wisdom: Soothing Creamy Cleanser (formerly known as Rosacea Cleanser) and Cleansing Oil.

    Yes, I use all of them, alternating between them. I use honey the most often.

    Best thing seems to have been to avoid cleansing with anything that has strong emulsifers or detergents, as they weaken the skin barrier. I don't think sensitive Rosacea skin recovers easily from that, and I think the weakened barrier causes a lot of the symptoms we experience.

    Warm water. If that's not enough for makeup removal, use a small amount of a benign oil - coconut, jojoba - to help things along.

    And as usual, GJ comes in as the voice of reason.

    And Judworth, if you can keep it down to only one cleansing per day (if you're using a cleanser), that helps a lot. The less done the better ...

    Thanks, Bella.

    I have it on good authority that you don't have to cleanse every single day either.. Though that authority is a non-makeup wearer (weekdays at least).

    I have a recollection of us having a similar conversation to this at some point the not-too-distant past ...

    Thumbs up

    Thank you you two!

    I am one lucky lady, work from home so 1x cleansing per day is fine.

    I do have some degree of sucess with honey, however it does increase the p & p's

    (which are not usually much of an issue for me).

    So it's reduced flushing & sensitivity for me or increased p & p's!

    Oh! the choices a girl has to make eh?

    Question PS.

    I wonder why manuka honey appears to be so good/calming for my flushing/redness

    yet increases p & p's?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    I use Manuka honey active +6 at the moment.

    Thank you!

    Default Yes

    I know what you mean about increasing the P and P's... it doesn't really happen on a large scale to me but I see it to some degree.

    Still feel like honey and coconut oil are the two best things I have come across.

    Hello SQ!

    Odd isn't it?

    I really do get benefit from honey masks & using honey as a cleanser, my face is so much calmer.........but those ***** little P and P's I could live without!

    Glad that the regime continues to work for you.

    You have SD aswell don't you?
