Thanks for your response.
Exfoliation is the nightmare of nightmares isn't it
I'm struggling to find a cleanser that my face likes! I may have hit upon a Bodyshop one really gentle Aloe Vera one which after a couple of tests, does not irritate (so far so good). As for moisture, again, I am struggling to find one. Been tring allsorts, including Rosa Relief, Toleraine, Avene, etc etc., but the only thing that my skin seems to tolerate is the Zenmed moisturiser and the Skin Support Serum. Even after using moisturiser my face still has patches of dryness and flakiness. Very annoying!
I have tried Guinot's Gommage Biologique. It's lovely. I use it twice a week to exfoliate, and it seems to be doing the trick, so far! I am finding though that anything on my skin is slightly irritating so I am having to manage a "damage limitation" exercise by finding the things that cause the least
irritation. Blast this wretched condition!!!!
I am still at the discovery stage. Trying to find things to help. I don't believe I have food triggers (except alcohol) but my triggers seem to be definitely stress, and excerise. As someone who is trying lose some weight too, the exercise thing is very frustrating. I find it interesting that my Rosacea has profoundly worsened since the birth of my two little ones.....
Thanks again for your lovely message.
