  • MSM!

    I started taking MSM (methylsulfonylmethsne) for my arthritis and I found that my rosacea went away! It has been over a year now and not a papule or red flare in sight. I love it! I can use either capsules or coarse flakes, 500-1000mg. Hope it works for you too!

  • Sun block. In what order do you put on your creams?

    At the moment, I'm using Skinoren, then, when it's dried, I apply La Roche-Posay Moisturiser.  I've seen that it's a good idea to use a sun block, too, but am wondering in what order to add this.  If you use a sun block, how do you use it?

  • Mascara?

    I've got rosacea and ocular rosacea and haven't worn eye makeup for many months.  Wondering if I could, perhaps, wear mascara occasionally as my eyelashes are very light.  Can anyone recommend anything suitable?  Would a hypoallergenic mascara be OK?
