I agree with what's been said above about finding out the triggers for it. Mine are also alcohol, stress, caffeine and very spicy food. I'm vegan so I don't have any dairy anyway. The antibiotics done absolutely nothing for me. I seldome wear make up and it always flares up after I do but I agree about a green primer.
On my skin I use sibu which has helped a lot. I also don't use any exfoliaters or anything harsh on my skin.
Stress is without a doubt my biggest trigger which is very frustrating. I hope you find something that works xx

I also I think there is a hereditary factor, though it could be more inheriting the intolerance that then causes the rosacea. My grandmother had the rosacea that develops into a red bulky nose with veins on it, and she didn't drink alcohol which is typically related to that form of rosacea. I noticed I started to get a red vein spot on my nose, so I know that if I had just let it go it would probably end up as bad as my grandmother's, so that is why I'm trying to sort it out. Its most certainly better. I'm trying to go for anti inflammatory foods in general, and avoid those that do cause inflammation like sugar. My skin is definitely better in general.


Also I think hormones, as after having the twins I had really terrible rosacea in my eyes and I literally looked after them for a week with one eye closed and stinging so badly I used to spend the whole time moaning in misery, horrible! Though it might have been my high levels of stress those first months too.

It is a concealer though, not a primer? It does sound a good price though, I will have a look.

My rosacea has really improved, I wonder if its taking out the sugar or some of the other things I've been doing? It could just be the sun... I think its going to take some time to work out my triggers
Yep, it's a concealer designed to be used after primer. I'm a trained make-up artist and we had to study contra-indications (such as rosacea) and how to fix them. Green cancels out red.

Ah okay, I have used quite a few green primers, but never a concealer! I just got a new green primer from amazon as my previous one was really expensive, see how it goes! To be honest my skin is looking okay lately so it doesn't feel so desperate as other times!
