We're to use sunscreen, but there's one problem

Hello! I have rosacea, and use a moisturizer called Pro-Derm Regenerating Cream. It is excellent, and is the only product I can use on my skin that doesn't irritate or sting.
We are supposed to use sunscreen for protection, but when you have rosacea, this is near impossible! I can't put anything on my face without it become red and sore, as well as my eyes swelling up. I'm trying to find a mineral makeup that works for me, seeing these have natural sun protection. So far nothing is letting my skin relax and feel comfortable. (Within a few hours I have to wash it off!)
So, I wear no sunscreen at all. I'm fed up with my own skin.
Anyone out there with this predicament?

Re: We're to use sunscreen, but there's one problem

I have rosacea and when I put sunscreen on my face & neck the skin would get extremely red - skin areas other than face & neck did not get red with sunscreen. Then I discovered most sunscreens contain alcohol & when I switched to ones without alcohol my face & neck did not get red. I've had sensitivity to alcohol all my life so this may not apply to you, but it's worth a try. I usually can find 1 or 2 sunscreens without alcohol in the store and it does take some time to read the fine print on the label and sometimes going to several stores until you find one.
