A little over a month ago, I started using coconut oil on a daily basis for rosacea. I noticed an immediate improvement and that has continued to this day. I've tried different approaches: Using coconut oil as a makeup remover/cleanser--just slathering it on and then wiping off. Applying coconut oil and then using another cleanser for taking it back off. Applying a small amount and rubbing it in, apart from my cleansing routine. My conclusion is that for me, it doesn't matter. Just having some on my skin in whatever way, daily, has kept the inflamed redness away. I still get flushed sometimes after eating, or getting overheated. But, it goes away soon, and I'm left with normal looking skin: pale with a little pink in the right areas. I still am applying the Finacea from my Dermotologist, but am not very diligent, since it doesn't seem to make a difference. Hope this is useful for someone else.
