I've got flushing rosacea on my cheeks so have to be quite careful but recently my skin's been looking quite dull with congested pores as well as redness with very flaky skin on my chin.

Any suggestions welcome, thanks!

Check your cleansers and go for gentler ones. My flushing/thread vein type rosacea is in remission, and there is never a universal solution for rosaceans as everyone has different triggers, but avoiding excessive washing, hot cloth cleansing, temperature changes and Eucerin 5% urea cream help me to keep my face flake free.

I am able to use AHAs and BHAs in mild Nip+Fab acid pads to exfoliate my face chemically (I phased them in very slowly) and they help enormously with congestion and glowl. Physical exfoliation has never worked for me, it has been a major flakiness trigger.
