If you have Rosacea, the blood vessels beneath your skin are swelling, causing redness and perhaps skin sores that resemble acne. Typically, people with this condition are between the ages of 30 and 50, with fair skin. Women get Rosacea more often but, if a man gets the condition, symptoms are often more severe. See the PubMed Health article on Rosacea from the U.S. National Library of Medicine for more information about the condition.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream

The doctor recommends that you use La Roche-Posay products if you have Rosacea.

The entire line is good for people with the condition, but he especially recommends La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream. This is a creamy, water-activated, fragrance-free and preservative-free cleaner specifically designed for people with intolerant skin. The lather is smooth and gentle as it rinses away traces of makeup and impurities.

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Anti-Redness Moisturizer

A second product from this line is one of the doctor’s favorite products for Rosacea: La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Anti-Redness Moisturizer. This is a light green fragrance-free moisturizer than neutralizes the redness in your skin. Plus, it’s a soothing product, providing relief. After use, your skin will be calmer and more radiant.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger has a final recommendation: use the Oxygenetix line to heal and camouflage multiple skin conditions, including Rosacea.
Oxygenetix line of moisturizers and foundation makeup
This line (Oxygenetix moisturizer and foundation makeup) contains medical-grade ingredients and so is only available through physicians and medical professionals. This product line is also an excellent choice if you have wounds, rashes, injuries, scars and/or dry skin.
