I have rosacea and very dry flaky skin on my cheeks.  I am looking for a gentle foundation and exfoliator that won’t aggravate my skin.  Suggestions?

    • I don’t exfoliate either.  My doc. told me that sometimes you can actually have a fungal infection on your skin and not know it.  If you use hydrocortizone cream for a week and that doesn’t cure it...it might be fungus.

      Can also be dermititise.  Using dandruff shampoo (I like nutragena t-gel) can help on your forehead skin too.

    • Hi.  You can and need to exfoliate BUT in a safe manner.  You see, when you have rosacea most people believe that you need to only calm the skin and not use any products with active ingredients.  It’s the contrary, actually.  You need to use products that exfoliate but in a gentle manner.  You don’t have to stay away from highly effective ingredients.  What you DO need to stay away from is all of the inactive irritants that are in most traditional products.  Go to pure skin junkie . com  I am the product developer and have an incredibly active but calming Rosacea treatment that actually will stregthen the capillary walls.  It will also normalize sebum production (oil) and acts as an antibacterial.  You can read tons on info on Rosacea there and I have several independant studies.  Feel free to ask me any questions whenever you need to.  Good luck!

    • P.S.  You should try mineral make-up.  Not only is it natural it has natural anti-bacterial benefits as well as being a natural sun protector.

      Let me correct myself.  My mineral make-up has natural anti-bacterial benefits!
