Comment by Erin on October 17, 2015 at 11:23am Might I share the published study on the proprietary ingredient, Nae8 found in Nerium product. The results I have seen are astounding. I am a partner and distributor and the only way we get the info out there is by word of mouth. Rachel Rowen, Medical Esthetician is published in Rosacea and has also written an article about what Nerium does for her clientele. She is also a partner. Happy to let anyone try this product, connect you to before/after photos, and more information.

Hello all! Diagnosed with acne rosacea three yea r s ago. Mine is all cleared up except my nose looks weird. Any ideas to make it look less bumpy?

Hi everyone.  I don't know that much about Rosacea but I get eczema and irritated skin.  I use Oriflame as I have found it good for sensitive skin.  I do sell this to customers and have received good feedback from some with particular skin conditions.  I do not know of any medical proof but their 'tender care' is often called 'little pot of magic' and I have used it when I have had a reaction to hair dye and usually only chemical treatments get rid of the irritation.  The products are natural skincare and it contains beeswax.  It is only in a small pot though but I used it a few times and it soothed irritation.

Thanks!! I've had fabulous results with Osmosis and red and blue lights and rarely use my prescription anymore. I'd love to see if Dr. Pugliese's oil or cream would work instead of the script!! Thanks again for the info ;)

And the green tea citrus cleanser
Comment by Lara Kistenmacher on April 11, 2012 at 8:31am
@Sharon, all I use now is Skin Script. Hydrating serum, green tea/ vitamin c serum, retinol 2% scrub (which is very gentle) ageless skin moisturizer, and when I have it the cucumber toner. I also do occasional LED treatments

Sharon, what is the name and manufacturer of the oil and the cream. I'm going to NY for the show and want to check them out. Lara, your items too ;)

Comment by Lara Kistenmacher on April 10, 2012 at 8:39pm

Also, peptides, retinol 2% and vitamin c from Skin Script have really improved the condition!!

I have oily (wet) rosacea.  I went from stage 2(almost 3) to stage 1 with multiple treatments.  Laser, LED (a God-send), and product knowledge.  Rosacea is what made me an Esthetician!  I eat and drink low inflammatory foods however I can drink a glass of red wine every night and am fine.  I am a strong believer in Omega-3 (fish oil)  in my opinion it is essential to rosacea because it helps strengthen the lipid barrier.  I can use glycolic, lactic and stronger enzymes in moderation and have no adverse reactions.  During both of my pregnancies my skin exploded with rosacea symptoms.  The 2nd one I developed perioral dermatitis which only receded with antibiotics and elidel.  If your clients have oily or wet rosacea and have many papules or pustules, light therapy and anti bacterial ingredients help a lot!  Antibiotics help control the proliferation of the demodex mite.  Just an over growth of the skins natural "good" bacteria.  I have been thru it all. Dark leafy greens and fruit are essential to good skin health especially rosacea.  Exercise is important too as it keeps the bodies inflammation in check.

Hi everyone.  Recently someone told me she was alternating hot and cold compresses to treat her rosacea clients and it calmed their skin.  Could someone give me some feedback on this subject?
