Dealing with age-related Rosacea and Redness 5

One of the hardest things for me about aging is the fact that my sin espeically on the checks has developed a redness or rosacea. I have no issue with growing old gracefully and have embraced my silver hair. But I am not so keen on looking as though I am always blushing.

So I asked the ever knowing Instagram Covern that live in my phone for their suggestions and I have made a number of changes to my routine and I am delighted with the results I have seen even in just the month I have been using them.

So here are my top tips for products to deal with age-related redness which my GP told me is quite common in perimenopausal and menopausal woman – damn those pesky hormones. Even though I am only 45 I have been on HRT since my operation 11 years ago.

I was given a load of different suggestions so I am going to share my new regium and also some of the other options that were suggested to me.

I use Elemis Cleansing Balm and love it. The key for me is to not have the water too hot (even though cleansers are often called hot cloth)!

Other recommended cleansers for rosacea included:


I use three toners at the moment. Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner every morning. On an evening I alternate between Pixi Glow Tonic and Alpha H Liquid Gold.

Other recommended toners for rosacea included:


I think this is what has made the biggest change for me and I opted for a less expensive option to start with and am delighted. La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Anti-Redness Intense Serum 40ml used morning and night before any moisturiser.

Other recommended serum for rosacea included:

Moisturisers and SPF

I have pretty much stuck to using whatever moisturiser I have as they are all for sensitive skin, but I have introduced Rosaliac UV Riche Anti-Redness Moisturiser with SPF.

I am delighted with the changes that I have seen and the redness on my cheeks and under my chin so much improved. The truth is that I have always been prone to redness on my cheeks but the lack of hormones caused by menopause have made it so much worse.

I would love to know what you use and if you have any recommendations?

      I have very sensitive skin but I think that it is pretty normal. I get a few spots on my chin. The La Roche Posy do two Moisturisers especially for red skin, one is heavier than the other. It is the Rosalic range. I have been told to avoid anything with rosemary, menthol or anything too astringent. Also to avoid anything too hot.

    I’ve had really bad rosacea recently. I’ve found Aveeno ultra-calming foaming cleanser has helped (Ordered from Amazon). I had to go to my GP in the end and she prescribed topical antibiotics which have nearly cleared it up
