Does aveeno ultra calming lotion reduce rosacea?

Christine`s also concerned about Rosacea: I have fairly bad rosacea, my cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin are always more pink than the rest of my face. If I drink alcohol or caffeine, or eat spicy foods, those areas become VERY red. I became excited when I saw that Aveeno came out with a moisturizer clinically proven to reduce the visibility of redness. Does this product work for rosacea, or is it just for people who have pink tones in their fair skin?

The Right Brain`s red-faced reply:

As you know if you read our recent post on Rosacea, there are only a few drugs that have been proven to be effective in the reducing redness. The Aveeno product you referenced (the ULTRA-CALMING DAILY MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 15) doesn`t contain any of these drugs but it does include a combination of sunscreens that can prevent Rosacea prone skin from turning red in the first place. That doesn`t necessarily mean that it will help you, but it does address at least one of the causal factors of Rosacea so it may be worth a try. Let us know how it works for you!

Now, here’s a challenge for the Beauty Brains community: what does the picture in today’s post have to do with this topic? The first person to post a comment with the right answer wins!
