    • Rosacea is an incredibly common—yet incredibly tricky—condition. The exact cause is unknown, and there is no cure. However, there are many topical products, including this, that are effective in managing symptoms.
    • A.M./P.M.:

    Use in the morning and/or at night. Apply two or three drops in the palm of your hand, then gently press into your face and neck. Follow with your moisturizer of choice and sunscreen (in the morning).

    RealSelf tips:
    • Sun exposure can exacerbate rosacea (and any general inflammation of the skin), so be sure to wear sunscreen daily.

    • Many external factors—certain foods, exercise, weather changes—can trigger rosacea flares, so it’s important to get to know your skin and avoid your triggers as much as possible.

    • While this is a great choice for those with rosacea, anyone dealing with sensitivity can use it, particularly given its hydrating properties.

    • Hyaluronic acid: A type of sugar naturally found in our bodies, hyaluronic acid is a top-notch hydrating ingredient. It attracts water to and traps it within the skin; the molecule can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This has the added benefit of creating a plumping effect, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

    • Saccharide isomerate: This plant-derived ingredient is deeply moisturizing, with a composition very similar to that of a moisturizing carbohydrate complex naturally found in our skin. As an added bonus, it also stimulates the body’s own production of hyaluronic acid.

    • Chrysanthellum indicum: A type of chamomile, this is innately soothing and anti-inflammatory. It’s an especially good ingredient to use for redness and rosacea because it’s proven to work on the capillaries underneath the skin. By strengthening the walls of these tiny blood vessels, they (and the subsequent redness) become less noticeable.
