Acne & Rosacea: Make-up Tips

For someone who has long dealt with rosacea, I thought I should give my own tips for those of you who are struggling to find balance with such red skin.

My very first tip to give you is to ditch your commercial make-up. No, seriously, do it. First of all, you have no clue what's in that stuff. So many toxins that are aggravating your rosacea even worse. If you don't believe me, I am directing you to my post on scary ingredient in face wash. You need a kick start in opening your eyes to the world: http://kaistclaire.blogspot.com/2013/07/scary-ingredients-in-face-wash-acne.html


If you can handle it, I highly highly suggest to go without make-up for quite a while. This may be easy for some of you if you're in high school and have summer coming soon. But if you have a job, it might not be an option for you. But don't worry, you don't have to ditch make-up altogether to heal your rosacea.


Now that you understand how important it is for you to ditch your crappy make-up, it's time for you to find new make-up. I advise you to go on etsy.com and search on there. Lots of lovely ladies on there have developed some all-natural vegan cosmetics. I've used the brands The All Natural Face as well as Willow Tree Minerals. I highly recommend both.

Why vegan make-up? Do yourself a favor and not harm the animals. Not only are you harming them by buying L'Oreal, who tests on poor animals and makes them suffer, but you could be allergic to those animal products that may be in the make-up. You never know.

So now that you've gone all-natural, I have a few tips.
This one is super important. Do NOT use concealer to cover your rosacea. Just don't do it. It's an awful idea. Not only does it make your face heavy, but it makes it super oily. That was my first mistake with trying to cover my red skin. So what do you do instead? Just cover it with foundation. No, seriously, it works. Try it.

Second of all, use an oil to clean off your make-up. It works wonders. I discuss this here: http://kaistclaire.blogspot.com/2013/09/rosacea-acne-coconut-oil.html

Okay so maybe I lied, I didn't really discuss it there, but I did cover the topic of moisturizing your skin.

And I believe that's all I have to say about make-up for right now. Hopefully you find this useful.

    1. Thanks! I totally agree with you there. Some girls look like total clowns, but to them it's "beauty". To me, it's just toxic.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
