    I've been taking msm for about 15 years. It hasn't done anything for my skin. I am enjoying my results with Prosacea so far. I've spent hours on rosacea forums. Not everything works for everyone. A lot of people are having good results using Afrin on their red areas. But on some people it stops working and their symptoms come back worse.
    I think I will give the Alpha Lipoic Acid a try. I read up on it last night and it sounds pretty awesome.

    Maybe you're not taking a high enough dosage of MSM? Rosacea aside, MSM is good for the skin.

    I don't have rosacea but if I did I think I would mix (and dissolve) the contents of an ALA and a MSM capsule with a basic skin moisturizer and see how my skin reacted.

    I'm thinking of doing that with some sulphur we have in the kitchen.

    Yep, going to give it a try, plus the ASA...... You never know.

    I also read something today about scraping your skin with a flat edge to get rid of those excess mites.... Dunno if it'll work, but it certainly feels softer. I'm going to see if I can get it to work for me.

    I am diagnosed severe rosacea that just gets so bad so so so so bad. I'm on a low maintenance dose of Doxycycline, coupled with the following topicals; metro gel in the am and azelaic acid at night. I do a sulfur mask twice a week with the mexican tub of sulfur ointment, and a salicylic acid peel once a week. Prosacea has been a life saver when I get it in my head to skip my entire routine for two weeks straight, it really helps to calm down the redness and the lumps and bumps, it is a great product.

    Just a thought - I was just looking @ WedMD to find out dosage etc & read this...
    "Rosacea. Applying a cream containing MSM and silymarin seems to improve skin color and other symptoms of rosacea."

    The info for ALA is here:-http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-767-alpha%20lipoic%20acid%20%28alpha-lipoic%20acid%29.aspx?activeingredientid=767&activ eingredientname=alpha%20lipoic%20acid%20%28alpha-lipoic%20acid%29

    Hope this helps.

    I've just returned from a trip to Trader Joe's. I bought some ASA and someone in some thread recommended TJ shampoo that was sulfate free. All I could find was sulfate free Tea Tree Oil shampoo, so I got it. Only $2.99.
    I revisited the dosage on the label of my MSM and I was not taking enough. Thanks, Qwerty.

    Ok, can anyone recommend a cheap daily moisturizer? I use a heavier night cream, but would like to not break the bank with a good daytime moisturizer.

    ^I have sensitive skin that breaks out with a lot of moisturizers, and my dermatologist recommended CeraVe. It's maybe $10/$12 iirc (I got my bottle at CVS) and lasts quite a few months (4 or so, at least for me, and I use it 2+ times a day on my face, neck, and chest), and instead of breaking out, my skin has been soft and smooth. I really recommend it. Cheap and effective, and has SPF.

    So what did you think of the shampoo? I now live in the boonies and TJ's is now over an hour away. I want to try it, but trying to decide if it's worth the long-ass drive.

    i've used their tea tree oil shampoo and it's nice but no, it's not worth an hour long drive. get it if you're in the area and you're going to trader joe's anyway. i think they're wonderful for organic products - much cheaper than organic products anywhere else.

    The tea tree oil shampoo smells nice and lathers well, but I wasn't crazy about how my hair felt afterwords. I've tried it just once. I'll have to try it again to make sure I don't like it. I have really gotten used to Wen conditioning cleanser and the way my hair feels so soft from it. The TJ shampoo made my hair feel rough. Maybe it would be a good clarifyer.
