What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that afflicts many fair-skinned people. Symptoms include a flushed face, pimples, burning or stinging when applying lotions or medicines to the skin, tiny red veins on the surface of the face and dry, red, irritated eyes.
It is important to see a dermatologist for medical treatment of this skin condition. There are a number of things that can trigger rosacea flare-ups. This includes exposure to sun, heat and exercise, as well as some foods and drinks.
Rosaclear by Obagi
I’ve been living with rosacea for a number of years and am always on the lookout for skin care products that help with this condition. Rosacea cannot be cured but it can be treated. I recently found a very gentle skin cleanser that will not dry or irritate my delicate skin.
This cleanser, Rosaclear Gentle Cleanser is made by Obagi and is part of their Rosaclear collection of skin care products.
I have been using this product for six months and have found it to be very effective at easily and gently removing make-up, even stubborn eye make-up. This product works well and never dries my skin.
The cleanser also calms inflammation associated with rosacea, reduces redness and blemishes as it hydrates the skin. It is also non-comedogenic
Not only is this product excellent, it is also inexpensive to use. The cost online at Amazon is only $13.50 and because it takes such a small amount of product to do the job, a 6.7 ounce bottle will last a very long time. I purchased my bottle of skin cleanser 6 months ago and have used only half a bottle so far.
Other Rosaclear Products
Obagi makes a complete line of skin care products just for the control of rosacea. I have used both the Skin Cleanser and the Hydrating Complexion Corrector. They also offer Skin Balancing Sun Protection with SPF 30.
