Hi all,

My sweet husband has always had rosacea and acne, but it's been kept under control. I don't like that he takes tetracycline on a regular basis, but it has helped him.

Of late he has been plagued by the acne...not just little pimples by the cyst types that are painful and his face is so red. His skin appears to be combo with a t-zone. His breakout areas are on his forehead, right above the nasolabial folds (by the nostrils) and on his chin.

If anyone can recommend a product or two that requires very little maintenance (he's a guy) I would truly appreciate it. I feel so bad for him.

First of all I would strongly recomend to treat the problem through diet and supplements, look at any food that could aggrevate his syptoms such as dairy, spicy foods, wheat, alcohol etc.
Supplements of Zinc, Multi Vitamin, Fish Oils would all help.

I second Rosebud's suggestion. Diet plays a major role in our skin's health so it's essenital that he look at this first. If you are looking for a mild topical treatment I would recommend a facial oil blend of Jojoba and Rosehip Oil which will help him control his natural balance of oils as well as help prevent acne, reduce scars and soothe the irritations. For a good daily line, Dr Hauschka, Primavera and Lavera make very good skin care products for those with sensitive skin and who suffer with rosacea. You might want to look into those lines.

LaRoche Posay's Rosaleac is not greasy. I also like Cutanix(ex?)but I use the one for dry skin. They have other ones that are less moisturizing.

Oracea is a low dose Doxycycline that works as an anti-inflammatory. My derm really likes this but it bothered my stomach.

Thank you so much ladies for your replies. I know diet is important, he doesn't really drink alcohol, but coffee is a major culprit. He's been trying to quit.

Marrie1120, thank you for this...

I am going to ask him to ask his derm about it...much better than tetracycaline.

He might benefit from an acne lamp? I do not have one, but have seen them on Amazon and elsewhere. The two standard makers appear to be verilux and naturebright.

Ginger, bromelaine, turmeric, and quercetin are all purported to have anti-inflammatory properties. I believe I have sometimes sen a mild effect on my skin from quercetin similar to what an antibiotic has done for my skin -- possibly is was a quercetic/bromelaine supplement.

I, too, concur with Rosebud.

I don't if he has tried these, but hopefully my advice for the acne will help

1) I reccomend aloe vera, he will see reducement in the redness,swelling, and the decreasement of pimples. each day you apply it he will not see some sort of "miracle" but, one shade of more clearer skin will show.

2) Drinking alot of water
