What can I accomplish with skin care products? I’m on a budget!
The old wisdom was that using retinoids like Renova in patients with rosacea would aggravate the rosacea. In the past few years, there have been studies that question that. I would recommend cautiously trying to add Renova 0.02% cream. Use it at night only. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, put your metrocream on and let it soak in for a few minutes, then apply your favorite moisturizer lightly all over and let that settle for a few minutes. Then, about a pea sized amount of the Renova all over your face. Try that every other night for a week or two and then go up to every night if you’re not irritated by it. The Renova will help with the fine lines and overall skin texture.
Remember to use a good quality sunscreen with 5-10% zinc in it every morning! Dr. I
