I wish I had the answer to the title question. As a fellow sufferer myself, albeit a very mild case (especially now pregnant and booze free, I’ve noted!) I’ve come to realise that there’s isn’t much by way of a cure. Well, there is the laser – which I think eventually I might try when my ladies at The Retreatery start offering it (they’ve zapped my arm pits, hairy legs and my bikini area and revolutionised my life to boot!), but at this moment in time there’s nothing else that I know about that can really eradicate those aggressive red patches.

Rosacea as a condition affects 6 million of us Brits, so it’s something that I’m hoping they’ll find a magical cure for one of these days. In the meantime, all we can do is manage the symptoms, calm the redness and prevent the spots. I’ve tried two of the products below – the Mirvaso, the cream the Daily Mail covered back in 2014, which to be honest, I didn’t find as ground breaking as it claimed to be, and Odylique’s products which I actually really loved, and felt the condition of my skin overall benefitted from.

I’ve been on the search today for alternative options, and it seems there are all of a sudden lots of products popping up on the market aiming to address the problem of rosacea. From creams, gels and oils I think I’ve found the best of them below. If any of you guys have tried any of the below, or use something you feel works, please feel free to share!
