New shades added to Ultra Sensitive Mineral Makeup line

We’ve recently added two new shades (with a third coming soon!) to our line of Ultra Sensitive Loose Mineral Bases.

Please find the shade comparison chart below for those of you who may have used our Original Loose Mineral Base in the past, but now want to give our Ultra Sensitive a try.   Ultra Sensitive Loose Mineral Base is a must for anyone with Rosacea , acneic or  reactive, sensitive skin.

Naturally preserved and completely free of irritants, we’ve taken the best qualities of mineral makeup and applied them to our new Ultra Sensitive Loose Mineral Base: a light-weight feel with the option of layering for more coverage as needed, the simplicity of an all-in-one concealer and foundation, it’s non-comedogenic and bacteria-resistant properties, it’s natural & inert ingredients, and it’s natural anti-inflammatory properties. All of these properties leave you with the best qualities makeup can offer while leaving out those which can add to those sensitive skin issues.

Silky, weightless and very forgiving, Ultra Sensitive Mineral Base goes on easy and feels like nothing at all, naturally. It evens out your skin tone, enhances your complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores.  So go ahead, nourish your delicate skin while getting the beautiful coverage and finish you need.

Rosacea Diet – Foods to Avoid

Spicy foods can trigger Rosacea.

If you are just learning that you have Rosacea, it might be helpful to know that there are certain foods you should avoid which are known to trigger the condition. Rosacea has symptoms such as facial redness which lasts for extended periods of time, pimples, red lines on the face, swollen bumps on the nose, and eye irritation. Obviously you will want to do everything possible to avoid triggering an outbreak of Rosacea, even if it means giving up a few of your favorite foods.

The following foods are known triggers for Rosacea:

Spicy foods – includes foods that are blood vessel dilators such as vinegars, hot sauces, hot spices, various spicy seasonings and peppers (even black pepper) and spiced meat marinades.

Certain produce – includes tomatoes, citrus fruits and citrus juices, raisins, bananas, figs, red plums, peas, eggplant, spinach, avocados, lima beans, and navy beans


Certain Dairy Products – includes Cheese, Yogurt, and Sour Cream

Chocolate (sorry!)



Soy Sauce

Yeast Extract

In addition to avoiding Rosacea trigger foods, you can also use skin care products to keep the condition under control. The right skin care products are made for ultra sensitive skin and contain no irritants. Skin Rx recommends the following products for Rosacea:

Rosacea Kit #1 – Contains Arnica Facial Wash, Soothing Serum, Skin Recovery, Visible Lift Eye Gel, PVA Shammy. This kit is specifically made for highly sensitive skin and works to cleanse, heal, and calm the skin.

Aloe Soothing Mask – Aloe plays a huge role in calming, soothing, and hydrating the skin in this mask.

RosaPlex Skin Serum – This calming skin serum soothes and hydrates the skin while helping to resolve issues specific to Rosacea including flushing and redness, visible capillaries, pimples, and other symptoms.

What are the symptoms of Rosacea?

If you are searching to find out what the symptoms of Rosacea are to find out if you may have this condition – you are in the right place and our team of skin care experts is here to help! Rosacea can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, so it is a good idea to visit a doctor or dermatologist if you find you have one or more of these symptoms.

The following symptoms are common in people with Rosacea:

Facial Redness – As Rosacea begins to develop, facial redness, especially on the cheeks, will be noticeable for lingering periods of time just like sunburn. The redness may also be on the forehead, nose, and chin. Things which may trigger the facial redness include sun exposure and alcohol consumption.

Bumps and Pimples – When the facial redness is noticed, you may also see or feel bumps or pimples within the red areas or on the outer edges. The bumps are round and red, and are unlike acne pimples known as whiteheads and blackheads.

Skin Thickening – Skin thickening will happen most often on the nose of people with Rosacea, and most commonly on men with the condition. This is caused by excess tissue forming.

Eye Irritation – About half of the people who suffer from Rosacea will experience some form of eye irritation. This may include redness or dryness, pink eye, burning, crusty mucus, tearing up, or a feeling like there is sand or dirt in your eye.

If you have been diagnosed with Rosacea and you are looking for the right skin care products to care for your skin type, Skin Rx suggests the following Rosacea skin care products:

Arnica Facial Wash – The perfect facial wash for people with Rosacea. It is mild and completely free from dyes, perfumes, oil, and alcohols – which means nothing to irritate your skin. Contains Arnica extract and aloe which is great for highly sensitive skin and works well to cleanse the skin of makeup and other dirt or residue.

Rosacea Kit # 2 – Contains six of the best products Skin Rx has to offer for people with Rosacea with Arnica Facial Wash, Willowherb Soothing Serum, Herbal Moisture Crème, Liquid Silk, Aqua Crème for Eyes, and Shammy.

Cameron Diaz has Rosacea – Even Celebrities Have Skin Issues To Deal With!

Cameron Diaz with a rosacea flare up.

Yikes! When we think of Cameron Diaz, we think sexy blonde, great body, perfect skin….

Reality tells us otherwise, though. Cameron Diaz does suffer from Rosacea, so if you think celebrities don’t have problems – think again!

Exactly what is Rosacea? According to The National Rosacea Society, rosacea is a “disorder of the facial skin” which causes “red-faced, acne-like effects” with specific symptoms including redness on one’s cheeks, chin, and/or forehead, small blood vessels on the face which are visible, bumps which look like pimples, and watery eyes. The condition affects over 14 million Americans and the cause is still unknown.

If this is something you are dealing with, what you might not know is that there are certain “triggers” which can aggravate your condition. You can keep your skin from having a rosacea flare up in most cases by avoiding these triggers which may include:

  • Sun Exposure
  • Stress
  • Wind
  • Heat/Hot Weather
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Spicy Food
  • Certain Cosmetics

There are many more triggers associated with Rosacea which can be found on

No one’s skin is perfect and Skin Rx is here to help. For Rosacea, Skin Rx recommends products such as Rosacea Kit #1, a combination of products to cleanse, calm, and heal your skin.

Mineral formulas


Rosacea controlled

Rosacea controlled

I would like to know/what is difference from say bare minerals and the mineral formulas now sold at drug store? I have rosacea and even these products make it flare.


Looking for something that will work and not irritate


Thank you for your recent interest in our products! There are so many mineral makeup formulas out there, you really need to do some research, especially since you stated you have rosacea. When you’re looking at mineral makeup either online or in the stores, make sure you read the ingredients before anything else. The major difference are the ingredients used; are they beneficial for the skin, or simply “fillers”. We recommend our mineral makeup for our post-laser clients, those with rosacea, and people who want a wonderful, natural cover makeup. As you see on our website, our loose mineral foundation contains ingredients such as green tea extract and vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) known for its antioxidant and moisturizing properties.

Our mineral makeup provides a luxurious coverage, with the benefits of SPF 15-17, although we do recommend using a sunscreen as well. We offer a 2 gram trial size makeup, and this is the best way to try our product. Most of our first-time clients choose 1 or 2 shades to try. This helps to customize a perfect shade for your skin tone. As you will see by reading through our testimonials, we have many sensitive clients that truly love our makeup. There will, of course, be those who are ultra-sensitive to our ingredients, but really the only way to tell is to give us a try!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of further assistance. You will also find an abundance of information on our website. Thank you again and have a Happy New Year!
