Storytime: Dermatologist, Rosacea, and Skincare Routines

I wanted to share the latest story about my trip to the dermatologist. In addition to my rosacea, I also have a new skincare diagnosis. I've changed my daytime and nighttime skincare routines and I discuss them. I feel like sometimes people don't want to talk about rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis or eczema, which is why I'm telling you about my experiences with them all

Nighttime Skincare Routine

Unfortunately, things like rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis seem to go hand in hand, so seeing the dermatologist and treating both conditions is critical. I wouldn’t wish these sort of problems on anyone. They’re not fun. If you have skincare issues, how are you managing them?

  • Thanks for sharing about your skin woes.

    I recently found out I have rosacea after a bad flair up that I thought was hormonal acne. It was recommended to avoid salicylic acid, which the PC BHA 2% has, so I only use it around the rosacea area and on décolletage. I adore Paula’s Choice and have so many products. I even intereviewed for a job there’s ages ago (long story). I have had to really strip down my skincare routine. I still successfully use the PC Resist serum and PC Vitamin C skin boost, which works great. Neutrogena extra gentle cleanser, straight rosewater and straight vitamin E oil have really calmed my skin. For a fancier experience I occasionally use a Trilogy moisturizer.

  • When your not trying out products what is your #1 face wash you can rely on to remove makeup and cleanse your skin that’s safe for rosacea sensitive skin? It seems like if they are gentle enough they don’t remove makeup! any suggestions would be really apreciated!! My skin can’t handle a wash cloth everyday I don’t think for the extra scrub

  • I have eczema on my hands, arms and face. For my face I use Derma E products and for my hands and arms Gold Bond for eczema cream.

  • So I have to ask….have you tried the Jordan Samuel Hydrating Facial Serum?? It’s all over the place and people are LOVING it! I’m wanting something for my sensitive Rosacea skin bc moisturizer only just isn’t working. I’m torn between Paula’s Choice Calm Serum or the Jordan Samuel Hydrating Serum. What are your thoughts between the two?!?! Love your post btw!

  • I don’t have rosacea, but my skin is pretty sensitive overall. I’ve been fortunate to not have any dermatitis lately, except on my lips, which has been total hell. I’m using a variety of products, mainly Paula’s Choice, Algenist, Herbivore, and NIOD from Deciem. After hearing so much about Sunday Riley I gave the Good Genes and Luna oil a go. Aannnd… allergic. Not too bad, I realized it pretty quickly. Not really surprising though considering how overly fragranced they are. I went to the derm yesterday for this lip rash (stubborn!!!!) and it wasn’t really a great experience, she spent literally 5 mins with me. She gave me Cloderm for my scaly rash and advised me to use nothing on my lips except pure petroleum. I’ll be returning the Sunday Riley and shelling out for my beloved NIOD NAAP and CAIS. I’m using the PC Skin Recovery at night with rosehip oil to get my skin settled down.

  • I love Paula’s Choice skincare. Since she sold the company, I’ve noticed that the prices have increased. boo. I do enjoy reading your posts as they are helping inform me about dry skin.

  • Thx so much for the reply? Is the glossier milky jelly good at removing mineral powder foundation? I’m really wanting to try it but I don’t want to use a makeup remover then a cleanser! I like to keep it simple with my skin. TIA

    • I use the milky jelly cleanser to take off makeup, and it’s able to do liquid foundation or the kat von d powder. I use it with a wash cloth.

  • Thank you so much for this! I’ve been struggling for a good while now with Rosacea and who knows what else! I went to a Derm who put me on Atralin(tretinoin) every night and Finacea every morning. That was way too much for my skin and I hung on for a good while but couldn’t do it anymore. Then went to another Derm who put me on a SA cleaner and SA gel every night and well that just didn’t work out. So I gave up. Why can I just be normal!! I love your blog so much cuz it helps to “speak” yo someone who gets it. Like, why can’t my face color match my neck!! Lol
    So what’s funny I was just looking up the Glossier Milk Jelly yesterday to try! Is it good enough to remove mineral powder foundation?? Also, you used to recommend Paula’s choice cleansers and moisturizers….do you no longer favor them??
    Thx!!

    • Paula’s Choice is the #1 skincare brand that I recommend, so I still recommend and love them! However, I’ve bought other brands to try out (and I’ve been sent pr pieces too), so I’m trying to use up what’s in my stash before I buy more.
