October 23, 2019 / By Kaleigh Question:
I just used the Vanicream Moisturizing Cream (suggested by dermatologist) and my face turned red...why did this happen?? It's suppose to be for very sensitive skin (e.g. eczema, rosacea, etc.) and my face reacted...could it be the ingredients or what? I also noticed my face turned red with the cetaphil moisturizing lotion and the cerave foaming facial cleanser and moisturizers. I have rosacea, acne, and oily but dry skin...what are your thoughts? what should i do?!?!?

You've obviously had a reaction of some sort, whether it's due to the extreme sensitivity of your skin, or because of some kind of allergic reaction. You should certainly let your dermatologist know what's happened and how your skin reacted.
You should allow your skin to calm down before putting anything else on your face. You wouldn't want to further irritate the skin tissue.
There are other creams and ointments your dermatologist might be able to try. Maybe he/she could give you a few samples to try before you invest more money in another cream that won't be suitable to your skin.
In the meantime, I would suggest you start drinking more water and avoid all alcohol & caffeine products (coffee, tea, pop, etc..) Alcohol & caffeine will actually dehydrate your skin. Water re-hydrates from the inside out. As well, drinking water helps to wash out the toxins in your body.
One thing I have found, is that whatever happens on the outside of our bodies is often an indication that something needs attention on the inside.
Increase your omega 3 fatty acids by taking supplements such as Evening Primrose Oil, fish oils, etc… And by eating walnuts, hazelnuts, or pecan nuts (if you’re not allergic)
Ground Fennel seeds and Flax seeds, as well as Flax seed Oil supplements (omega 3’s) also act as anti-inflammatories. (reduce redness)
Omega 3’s aid in proper digestion and healthier skin.
Try increasing your intake of vitamin D through supplements (1000 – 4000 IU/day) and B-complex to aid in healthier skin and maintaining a healthier immune system.
Many people find food with histamines aggravate their redness and a more alkaline diet is extremely helpful.

Here are a few other helpful, (and natural) hints for a better complexion for a lifetime:
- avoid any products with alcohol. Alcohol can actually burn & irritate sensitive skin tissue.
- only use gentle, fragrance-free, oil-free, alcohol-free cleansers on your face.
- have a daily facial cleansing routine (2x daily, morning & night. Do not scrub as this will irritate the skin)
- avoid extended periods in direct sun (use sunblock for sensitive skin, with 15 - 30 spf)
- avoid extreme weather conditions (hot, cold, windy...)
- avoid really hot things. Hot showers & hot tubs, hot drinks (the heat will dilate blood vessels causing more redness)
- avoid spicy foods, greasy foods, and foods with a high refined-sugar content. (these foods disrupt the natural digestive processes of the body)
- eat foods high in anti-oxidants; such as blueberries, cranberries, purple grapes, broccoli, etc..
- try to cut down on stress (stress can magnify a multitude of conditions)
- try to get at least 7 - 8 hours of sleep each night (aids in the healing processes of the body)

Originally Answered: Is it okay if I use my body soap (St. Ives Moisturizing Body Wash) for my face?
Since you have acne, no. The soaps we use on our bodies are harsher than the soaps intended for your face. Good skin care doesn't have to be expensive or involve tons of products.
An inexpensive regimen you can pick up at WalMart is this:
Neutrogena Cleansing Bar for Acne Prone Skin
Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 15
Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment
Cleanse morning and evening. In the evening after you cleanse, pile the treatment on your spots, so it's white and then moisturize around the big spots. In the mornings, apply just a tiny bt of the treatment before you moisturize. If you need to exfoliate, use a washcloth.
Age prevention is all in moisture and sunscreen.

I'd contact the company that makes the product.
Perhaps they can provide you more information, and or give you a refund or direct you to another product.
It seems to me, that you're skin is allergic to whatever is in the product.
Testing a small area of your face with a new product is a good thing as well. One never knows if you'll have a reaction, regardless of whether your skin is sensitive or not.

Actually, if you have corn starch and milk, that is the best thing anyway. Use 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 cups of milk and it is better and cheaper than the bought stuff. It makes a better sauce anyway. It will get it's flavor from the other stuff you are cooking. You can use mushrooms garlic and herbs with it and so many different things with it. Always keep corn starch and milk on hand.
