I was diagnosed w/rosascea year ago and given steroid cream to help. Helped somewhat but I didn't like using it. I thought I had extremely sensitive skin because every product I tried left me feeling dry and tight. Never had to deal with acne or breakouts though.
It wasn't until I switched out all my products (shampoo, conditioners, soaps, facial products, etc.) to more natural ones that didn't contain parabens, petrochemicals, SLSs, phthalates, etc. that my skin dramatically improved. No more tightness (in fact, most days, I don't even need moisturizer), no more redness (which makes me believe the rosascea Dx was a bogus one), my skin looks and feels better than ever.
Firming creams don't work; don't fall for the claims. Save your $.
