    Using a “lotion” to calm the redness of Rosacea is a bandaid that generally doesn't work well anyway. To avoid the problems of redness - avoid all of the factors that exacerbate the problem. The best way to treat your Rosacea, is to work at strengthening the skin so that you don't suffer with the problems in the future. Medical grade vitamin C and vitamin A will slowly be introduced into your skin regime and their use increased as your skin tolerates the products. Expect your Rosacea to be more than 50% better in around 3 months.
