Let’s talk about skin.
No, not, “It rubs the lotion on its skin,” type of talk.
I have rosacea. It’s triggered by stress, and since it’s close to impossible to have a stress-free existence, it’s always there. It flairs up when there are a lot of things going on, for example, the owner meeting I organize each year that possesses all aspects of my life until it’s over. That type of stress causes major flair ups.
For a long time, I was using a series of products created by Mario Badescu, and they worked pretty well. They helped the redness stay toned down, and I was content. Then, the company discontinued those products.
Since then, I’ve been hopping from skin care regime to skin care regime, hoping that something would work. I tried sea buckthorn. I tried oils. I tried almost anything that I found on the internet. Finally, I think I’ve finally found something that works for me – TriDerma Facial Redness Repair and Facial Redness Cleanser.
I use the Repair after the shower in the morning and the Cleanser right before I go to bed. I’ve found that while the cleanser dries my skin out a bit, it’s better if I don’t put any lotion on before going to sleep. The redness is much, much better. These days, my rosy cheeks are more from brisk temperatures and exercise than from rosacea.
I’m not getting compensated or anything for letting you all know about my new regime, but I thought that any of you who may also suffer from little red bumps and unhappy skin might benefit from the knowledge. I’m proof that nothing works for everyone, but this seems to be working for me, and it’s one of the many things I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving.
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
