Cheryl tells us her symptoms of rosacea began at a slow on again – off again pace starting with ‘mild symptoms of rosacea for many decades, that only progressed to moderate while experiencing menopause, and in a desperate attempt to control the symptoms I tried a variety of treatments which resulted in the spiral from moderate to severe rosacea symptoms.’

Cheryl writes that ‘I promised myself that if Rosacea-Ltd worked, I would submit a review, because when my rosacea in its most severe stages, I would read other testimonials that had been submitted on this site, sometimes every day, in an effort to boost my confidence and give me hope. Within a few months after starting the Rosacea Ltd. products, my skin improved so much that I quit thinking about having rosacea. I saw a picture of myself the other day from before I started this treatment and decided it was time to add my story in the hope that it will inspire and give hope to others who struggle as I did to control their rosacea and give them the incentive not to give up.’

I promised myself that if Rosacea-Ltd worked, I would submit a review, because when my rosacea in its most severe stages, I would read other testimonials that had been submitted on this site, sometimes every day, in an effort to boost my confidence and give me hope.

The urge when trying a new treatment is to rush in and slather it on immediately. But follow the advice and recommendations in the letter accompanying your disks. Start slowly, it’s hard but follow their advice and allow your skin to heal from the treatments you used in the past. My skin was so sensitive that when I started the disks, even applying water to my skin would cause pain. Applying anything to my skin resulted in stinging and redness.

The method I found that has worked best for me is to cleanse my face in the morning with the fragrance free version of Neutrogena for sensitive skin. I keep my face and hands wet and put two to three drops of jojoba oil in the palm of my hand and rub my hands together to distribute the oil evenly in both hands and then gently smooth the oil over my face. I then rub the tan colored disk over my hand which is still damp from the water and oil and then again very gently smooth this onto my face. My skin is so sensitive and damaged from the treatments I used in the past, that this works better for me than applying the disk directly to my face. I let my skin air dry and then apply my regular sunscreen and foundation over it.

In the evening after my shower, I repeat this same process outlined above only I use the white disks rather than the tan.

My skin is very fair and has a tendency to be dry and I have found that at times even the pillowcase will irritate my skin. I have found that using an all-cotton pillowcase with no fabric softener added in the wash cycle and changing the pillowcase every few days has helped to ease the irritation.

I still an occasional breakout. Possibly due to the weather, stress or some food or wine, but these tend to be mild and using the disks, they clear up quite quickly. These days I am happy to say, I get compliments on how beautiful my skin looks which feels wonderful to hear.

A few tips I have learned along the way and many you have probably heard before. Always resist the urge to pop or squeeze pimples and rosacea papules. couple of comments. It only makes them worse and then they last even longer.

Don’t apply too much of the Rosacea-Ltd disk. It only takes a little and give your skin time to calm down from the flares you experienced from previous products before starting.

I closely followed the alkaline diet when I first began using Rosacea-ltd but I have found over time that I do not need to follow it as closely now. I do try to drink at least 10 glasses of water every day but I don’t fret if I miss that target every day.

I have never been sure if sunlight is a trigger for my rosacea but I have found that some sunscreens do make it worse. It’s best to try a little bit of sunscreen on one spot on your face before slathering it all over your face. And if I should get a sun burn on my face, I stop the using the disks and just apply additional applications of jojoba oil until it heals.

I do hope my story helps someone else who is struggling to control their rosacea. Take it slowly. It may take three or even months to see an improvement especially if your skin is very sensitive. Remember in many cases it took your skin years to get this bad, and it will take some time for it to heal. Be patient and you really will see progress.
