Moisturizer, Makeup
and Your Skin

Q. I have rosacea and my dermatologist has told me to never use moisturizer. He is the only person I've ever heard say this.

Is this true? And is there something else I could use for dry skin?

A. Rosacea patients tend to have very sensitive skin and often need a moisturizer. Several prescription moisturizers can be prescribed that contain medications to treat rosacea.

Over the counter Cetaphil lotion is considered very gentle and is usually well-tolerated in rosacea patients.

Q. My question is what is the safest way to remove mascara, and or eye makeup. I have been using Vaseline for many years..maybe this isn't the safest way

What ingredients are safe? What about dabbing your eyes with olive oil? Is that safe?

A. Vaseline is safe to use to remove eye makeup. Petrolatum, the main ingredient in Vaseline, is non-irritating.

Olive oil is also safe.
