A Protocol for "Confused" Skin
Products for oily skin can be drying, leading to dehydration and a loss of your skin's natural radiance, while products for dry skin can exacerbate rosacea, visibly open pores and lead to unflattering shine.
A reliable solution is to adopt the following protocol:
Cleanse skin twice-daily with Rosacea Oil-Free Purifying Gel Cleanser. It provides deep-cleansing and oil-free hydration together with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and healing factors which help avoid disrupting your skin, preventing redness and burning, tingling and itching sensations.
Follow with Rosacea Purifying De-Sensitizing Mist, a 95% decoction in 5% deionized water, which purifies, hydrates and gently stimulates skin to promote a fresh appearance. The purifying properties of the mist are 100% non-drying yet help to purge follicles of sebum, wax, papules and pustules.
Finally, hydrate and protect against environmental triggers and the photoaging responsible for rosacea symptoms by applying Rosacea Hydrating Serum, then Rosacea Treatment Fluid and finally one of the Rosacea Sunscreens.
If your skin is experiencing a flare-up, you can also use Rosacea Cooling Lotion in place of Rosacea Treatment Fluid, which is lighter than Rosacea Treatment Cream and provides a stronger anti-inflammatory and soothing effect.
The above protocol will bring rapid relief from inappropriate skin care and balance skin toward a more uniform state, less easily provoked by triggers, and more responsive to conventional topical rosacea medications.
