If you read this blog, you’ve learned that my skin can be cray-cray. I have finally found a skincare regimen, and my skin has improved dramatically. Occassionaly I will get a reactive rash, a Rosacea flare up from certain foods, or a mega zit from hormones. Good times. Luckily, I have a secret weapon to help me during those times…
If you have any of those skin concerns I just listed, this stuff may be your new bestie.
A list of times La Roche-Posay Rosalic A.R. Intense has bailed my ass out of bad skin jail:
- This winter was brutal. Sometimes my skin decided it just “couldn’t even”. When the tempatures dipped, I had red skin on my cheeks, and the wind made it tender. What made it bounce back? This stuff. Boom!
- I recently got off the Gluten Free wagon after I simply could not stand another day of gfree bread. I would have gone back to the G sooner, but the problem was, my skin reacted in a Perioral Dermatitis breakout everytime I tried to eat regular bread and other fun stuff. I decided to push through and continue to introduce it back into my diet. What calmed the POD breakout? This stuff. Bam!
- Some times when I try a new product, my skin tells me to piss off* and I get a rash. That’s ok because in 1 day it’s gone from this miracle serum. Shazam!
- Hormones suck. They bring tumor zits on occasion which I’ve named “Gerards” after the actor, Gérard Depardieu. Don’t ask why I named them that. I can’t explain the inner workings of my mind. But this stuff can be used to bring down the swelling AND the irritation caused by testing the pimple with salicylic acid. Booshaza! (Ok, that’s not a word).
*Example of a past skin reaction from a 4% BHA:
(Maybe that one customer was right, I sometimes do look like Lena Dunham).
Rosaliac is not exactly cheap ($36.00), but if you get it from CVS you can use your extra care bucks. Plus one bottle lasts a long time. Totally worth it.
I can’t wait till the summer when I try it on sunburns and bug bites. Oh wait, yes I can.
Till next time…
