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.

Are you or anyone you know suffering from Rosacea? Join our contest for a chance to win Avene’s complete redness skin care regimen ($180 value). This 6-piece kit with cosmetic case features Avene’s full range of products dedicated to treat redness-prone skin. A total of 4 lucky winners will be chosen at random and win:

  • CLEANSE: Antirougeurs Dermo-Cleansing Fluid
  • TONE: Avène Thermal Spring Water
  • INTENSIVE TREATMENT: Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate
  • MOISTURIZE/PROTECT: Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25
  • ADDITIONAL SUN PROTECTION: High Protection Mineral Cream SPF 50
  • SOOTHE/REPAIR: Antirougeurs CALM Soothing Repair Mask

All you need to do is answer this question:

Although there is no cure for Rosacea, symptoms can be controlled. What treatments work for you best?

    I havent used any treaments for rosacea because it looks like im starting to have one. My face started to get very dried and few weeks later there was red spots on my cheek area. Now all these red spots started to peel off and regardless of what moisturiZer i use it wont absorb…i heard avene treamtns work really well on rosacea and i would really love to use it!!!!!!

    The treatments that have worked best for me are natural, organic products without harsh chemical, acids and exfoliants. In addition to products, I try to protect my skin from environmental factors such as too much sun exposure, heat, overly dry environments, etc. Prevention is key.

    I have a little patch of pinknes that can sometimes get red, especially if my allergies/ eczema flair up. I have yet to try any products to treat it because I prefer to avoid harsh chemicals. Although, I have discovered the wonderful line of Avene! The thermal spring water has been keeping my face soft and enhances my moisturizer. The soothing eye contour and cream for intolerant skin has been a blessing. I would love to try the Antirougeur line!

    This are the good ways to treat acne, another good natural remedy for acne is aloe vera, Its anti-inflammatory properties help in curing acne, also it also improves the texture of damaged skin. It helps remove dark pigmentation and dark spots and soothe the skin. This is very good natural remedy for acne and acne scars.

And Antirougeurs Calm Repair Mask ulta-immediate redness relief. Alos healing properties of Avene Thermal Spring Water, both products contian saponin-enriched Ruscus extract and resuce skin reactivity.. I have used Avene products and they are great.

    I have both rosacea and eczema so when they both flare up at the same time, I’m one big, itchy, red blotchy mess! Reducing the stress in my life, avoiding spicy foods, sunblock, a great dermatologist and using Avene products help tremendously.

    My mother was recently having problems with her face, especially her eyelids. They were red, scaly, itchy and puffy. I sent her the Avene eye cream, the facial wash and the moisturizing cream. Within days, her skin was 100% improved.

    I’ll never use anything on my face but Avene again!

    I have tried numerous (and some very pricey) products all did help a little, but in the end I found the same thing with all of them. Washing my face at night time was the worst and is when I got the reddest and most burning. So I now choose not to wash my face at night and only do it in the morning and it is not as red or not burning as much, however I feel this is not healthy for my skin. Avene sounds like it might be the choice for me. I would love to try it!

    Hello,

Amlactin has really worked miracles for me. I have also used a Burt’s Bee’s wash specifically targeted at reducing redness, but I have not found that to work very well.

    I’ve only been recently “diagnosed” with super sensitive skin, so I’m going through a total overhaul and shift with what I use. It’s like a new way of thinking. A spritz of Avene Thermal Spring Water in the AM. Gentle cleansing in the PM. I have to really watch my diet too; junk, alcohol, caffeine and spice can be triggers. Lots of water. But even then there are lots of bad days. I do love Avene and am planning on trying more of their line.

    So interesting what others have said about aloe being a great natural cure for acne. Must try.

I do find cutting out the alcohol, reducing my amount of caffeine, drinking lots of water and limiting the amount of spicy foods that I eat helps the flare ups. However, my skin still has to have comforting cleanser and moisturizers with or without the flare ups.

    avoid alcohol contained skin cares. natural product should be good because less stimulated. Avene products contain natural spring water that will reduce/heal the redness.

    I love all the Avene products I have tried. My facial skin is red and sensitive. I have eczema and menopause has really taken it’s toll on my skin. Avene products after the first use, made my skin not only feel better, but look better too! I can’t put into words how I feel about this company!

    Thank you, I am a loyal customer. Thank you also Dermstore for getting the products to me so quickly!!

    I’ve been suffering with Rosacea for a long time. My skin is sensitive and it looks like I’ve flushed a lot. Also, I have those red dots that look like acnes. I’d been frustrated for a while. However, I found a way to reduce this problem. I stopped eating spicy. I drink more water. I stopped using harsh chemical products and started to use Avene (gentle cleanser, toner and cream.) Avene is my lifesaver. My skin is under control now.

    For the last 15 or 20 years, I have continued to go back to using Acne Statin with salicylic acid to control breakouts. I have not been successful with using any other moisturizers for my aging, yet still normal to oily, skin; they all make me break out or burn and get red spots. I do have some veins (real fine red and purple) that are showing up on my cheeks, but only now, upon reading this ad, am I realizing that I actually have rosacea. I understand there are people that have much worse cases of it than I, and have known what it was for years and tried many different treatments; therefore, I do not anticipate winning your product package, but would welcome the possibility nonetheless.

    I’ve had rosacea for years and have tried just about every product out there (within my budget). Problem is, every spring, I experience a fresh surge of rosacea, and the products I’ve been using for the last year just quit working. I have to start finding all new products to start over with. It’s Spring and I’m on the hunt again, so PLEASE CHOOSE ME! Personally, I avoid: extreme heat, extreme cold, alcohol, spicy food, and foods and vitamins rich in niacin. This spring I used small amounts of the prescription Clobetasol Propionate. A variation of the same active drug is called Olux. I believe it is steroidal and I could not stay on it for very long, but was able to get rid of the big red bulby nose for the first time in years. It was wonderful to see my real face again!

    Good luck to all who suffer from this frustrating, embarrassing and painful condition.

    I found complete regimen from Avene is more effective for rosecea..
    1. first have to clean face with Avene Gentle gel cleanser…if dry skin is better to use milk cleanser.
    2.Then we have to spray thermal spring water it will help to sooth the skin.
    3.After drying out the water people can use gentle toner from Avene..even though spring water works as a toner as well but its better to tone the skin.
    4.then for day time they can use Avene Redness relief cream with SPF..people with rosecea they can see significant calm down of redness after using this product.
    5. at night they can use thermal spring soothing serum then followed by Avene cream for intolerant skin.If someone has Rosecea & they follow this Avene regimen they can see significant difference in 3 days..:)

    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.

    Metrogel, but it’s too drying.

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

    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.

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

    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!
