In addition to stress, my diet really has an affect on my skin. If I drink too many softdrinks, my skin flares up.
When I was first diagnosed, I was put on Metrogel. I wasn't keen to stay on a Rx if I could avoid it. I switched most of my makeup and skincare to natural products and continue to work on my diet and stress levels. Just cutting out the soft drinks and switching to natural skincare made huge differences immediately.
I use a Rosacea serum from gardenofwisdom.com. I find it helps as much as the Metrogel did. I discovered this natural skincare line that has made a tremendous difference: nadarra.com The cleanser is a little too harsh for me, but the Pure Intensive Moisturizer has made a huge difference. My skin isn't anywhere near as inflamed and I don't have the dry patches that I normally have. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a natural alternative to moisturizers.
