All the buzz about using hemp to treat rosacea has caught my attention. If CBD oil helps ease redness and inflammation, I'm in. The problem is that what works for some people doesn't always help my rosacea. Some products have worsened the redness, itching, and flare-ups. To try it out, I purchased two items. Andalou Naturals CannaCell Cleansing Foam is one of them. I've had good luck in the past with other Andalou skincare products. I ordered the foam to see what would happen. It's now day four and I'm impressed.

My Rosacea ProblemsSince temperatures dropped and my heating system has been turned on, I've experienced very dry, itchy, red skin. I'm also seeing an increase in the rosacea pimples. Those were the problems I'm trying to ease. CannaCell lists these as benefits:
- Aloe vera – Hydrates and improves the skin's natural protective barrier.
- Hemp seed oil – Nourishes skin with minerals, nutrients, proteins, and vitamins.
