Enter Our Avene Rosacea Awareness Month Giveaway

Are you blushing a little bit too much? If you feel constant burning or stinging sensation and notice persistent red patches, visible blood vessels and acne-like spots on your nose, chin, cheeks or forehead, beware! You may have rosacea.

Rosacea is a skin condition that involves inflammation of the blood vessels underneath the skin. It can start as an intermittent redness or rash and can develop into something more persistent over time. Little is known about its cause, but studies say it affects about 14 million Americans—some of them don’t even know they have it.

While there’s no known cure for Rosacea, Avène offers a complete, easy-to-use regimen to minimize, neutralize and prevent redness.  Its redness relief line features two new products:  Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate, an intensive treatment for chronic redness; and Antirougeurs CALM Soothing Repair Mask, an ultra-soothing repair mask for immediate redness relief.  Aside from the healing properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water, both products contain Saponin-enriched Ruscus extract to increase microcirculation and reduce skin reactivity.

    Avoid washing with hot water and try not to use products with too much chemicals in them.

  2. Janine

    Washing face with gentle cleanser irritating dirt and makeup allowing skin to regenerate and heal at night.

  3. Brandy Ritter

    My daughters and I use water and lavender, plus try to stay hydrated

  4. Jessica P

    I try to stay away from my triggers…. But caffeine is one that is one that is a tough one to stay away from.

  5. Kathy

    Heard great things about Avene products! I haven’t really found anything that works for me because my skin is so sensitive.

  6. irene garibay

    I’ve notice lately more red spot on my face I bought an eye cream and seems to be working.

  7. Jess

    The only thing that helps me at this point is a doc script cream for my cheeks. I have trouble with so many products reacting with my skin or drying me out. I have some broken caps. as well that will need to have laser therapy as soon as I can afford it. I’ve always wanted to try the Avene products though.

    I have rosacea and it seems to get worse if I eat spicy food or if I have any adult beverages. I use a few prodcuts from Clinique that gear towards redness and a green stick that I use before I put on my foundation. Thanks for the chance. I would love to try :)

    I live near the beach & have to stay out of the sun. Always using SPF 30+ but my skin is even sensitive to that!

    before it get worst ..cleaning, moisturizing n sunscreen the most..beside that washing with cool water or rose water will help calming down the redness for me..but not really helping for my horrible hyperpigmentaion..melasma..still looking for the one..

  11. Laura

    I’ve tried just about everything. I think I need to try Avène.

  12. Amy

    I have loved EVERY Avene product that I have tried, and recommend these products to my friend with Rosacea – would love to share with her!

  13. Jini P.

    I am careful not to over exfoliate or use very harsh exfoliators and often cleanse my skin w/oils to soothe and soften.

  14. Helena Monteiro

    Not a treatment, but an anti-inflammatory diet keeps my rosacea in check. Also, staying out of the sun. Avene’s retinoids, namely Eluage, also help, believe it or not.

  15. Nancy Ngo

    Taking ultra cool products. I would love to try the Avene Redness Relief Mask in the near future.

  16. Claire

    I try to be gentle when washing or drying my face and when applying makeup.

  17. DoverPRo

    THe usual treatments, Doxycycline and Metrogel, but then I also find that a moisturizing application with an oatmeal based ingredient helps the redness. Also I go straight to an alkaline diet, no starch, no sugar, no acidic drinks, and that speeds the recovery process.

  18. Mary Anne

    I have used metro gel – would love to try these products! Thanks for considering me.

  19. Lunae12

    I just use my organic facial oil since I’m scared to use other products that contain chemicals and may aggravate my skin condition.

  20. Jessica Chetwynd

    I am an esthetician and I could really use these products for people with sensative skin and rosacea. Unfortuantely I cant afford clinical grade products. Please consider me!

  21. Debi Redding

    Anti-inflamatory fruits and veges plus organic skin care.
