The INKEY List Tranexamic Acid Night Treatment

I have type 1 rosacea and very sensitive skin but I also have some hyperpigmentation on my forehead from last summer. Looking for something to treat it. Is this product good for that or can you recommend something else? Should it be used on it’s own or together with serums etc?

I think this is a good choice, because you do not want anything too strong in rosacea-prone skin, but still contains ingredients (Tranexamic Acid and Ascorbyl Glucoside) that can work. The main product to combine it with is a daily sunscreen (use this The Inkey List at night, and sunscreen during the day). Sun protection would help manage the flashes, will prevent future hyperpigmentation and will allow the old spots to heal faster. The good thing about this product is a relatively affordable price, so you can try it and stop in case it disagrees with your skin (Benzyl Alcohol and Tranexamic acid itself would be my first suspects in case you notice a reaction). Please be patient, it usually takes a couple of month to see results on the skin tone. Best of luck!

Thanks for your help. I’ll give it a try, it’s worth a shot since it’s a lot cheaper than laser. Should I introduce it slowly or just go all in and use it every night?

Every night should be fine - it is supposed to be gentle. (If you get a reaction, it is not worth continuing hoping that the skin gets used to it - I'd stop right away and look for a different set of actives). Btw, you can also look into azelaic acid to help manage rosacea (https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-ordinary-azelaic-acid-suspension-10). The regime could be azelaic acid + sunscreen during the day, and the night treatment + a moisturizer at night.
