Rosacea PM routine (on a budget)
I was never concerned about skincare routine until I found out I have rosacea. But it was not until recently that I started being more intentional about it (@cherie helped a lot ♥️). I didn’t review TO Niacinamide, the TO Azelaic Acid or the Cerave PM facial lotion yet. I just started to use. I’ll review them on another post after 6 weeks of my routine. 1 Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser I use this cleanser for a while now. It’s really gentle to my skin and it doesn’t make it tight 2 VICHY - Mineralizing Thermal Water Spray Rich in 15 Minerals it’s not always on my routine. I just used it when the rosacea flares up or I feel my face too hot 3 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%Like the Azelaic Acid, I just started so I wanna wait at least 6 weeks to see the results 4 The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%👆🏼 5 CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion👆🏼 6 #Trader Joe’s - Hydrating Hyaluronic Body Gel Cream[products]#[FiveStars] I use this on my body and not face. I simply love it, it’s a total game changer. I wrote a review about it on another post 😉 I also to add an oil to the routine. Thoughts?

Azelaic Acid for Inflammation & Rosacea
Hi friends! Today I’m going to be highlighting one of my FAVORITE ingredients: azelaic acid. Oh...just another acid...great...WRONG! Azelaic acid can treat inflammation, heal rosacea, and it even has antimicrobial properties to help stop the spread of acne causing bacteria—this healing current breakouts! I am head over heels with Azelaic acid & one of my favorite products with this ingredient is the APTO Healing Turmeric Mask APTO SKINCARE - Healing Mask with Turmeric . I have sensitive, combination, fair skin that is acne and rosacea prone. While I know I can’t permanently “heal” my rosacea, this mask definitely helps subside it. I found out about azelaic acid through personal research and my dermatologist! I was on Curology for a while and azelaic acid was part of my formula so I knew it was right for me. I use this mask once every 1-2 weeks. It has turmeric as another main ingredient so I leave it on for 8-10 minutes and gently rinse off. If you leave it on longer it has a chance to stain your skin yellow. You can also use it as a spot treatment mask on problem areas if you’re nervous to use it on your whole face. It’s relatively cheap at $16 USD and has lasted me months...like 6 months now? I highly recommend this if you’re looking to try out azelaic acid in a stable, wash-off formula. 5/5
