 Skin Care Recommendation for Rosacea*

When you have this skincare concern, you need to take special care when taking care of your skin. People with rosacea have skin that is easily irritated by cleansers, creams, and makeup. The right products can help you have the best looking and feeling skin.
These recommendations should prove to be helpful skin-care tips.

1. Learn Your Triggers

Each person with rosacea has different triggers, or things that make their rosacea worse. This can include some ingredients, such as cleansers, moisturizers, and makeup.
The best way to learning which skin products work involves trying different ones to see what works..
Doctors usually recommend trying a new product on a small area of skin for a few weeks first. This will allow you to make sure it doesn’t cause redness, burning, or stinging. If a product caues irritation STOP using it.*

2. Avoid Products That Dry Skin

Check out the labels, and watch out for ingredients that can make your skin dry. These include:
  • Alcohol
  • Witch hazel
  • Menthol
  • Camphor
  • Peppermint
  • Eucalyptus oil
  • Fragrances
  • Propylene glycol

3. Keep It Simple

In general, you need products with mild ingredients and no fragrance. The more ingredients involved, the more likely it will irritate your skin. If you’re not sure about a product, ask to try a sample. Or check with your dermatologist.*
It is a smart idea to bring in all the skincare used to your doctor, so they can give a medical oppinion on which ones to avoid.

4. Use Sunscreen Every Day

Sunlight on the skin is a trigger for many people with rosacea. You should use sunscreen every day this can help, but sunscreen can irritate the skin. This means you have to be smart about which one you use.
Doctors usually advize that sunscreen with a physical blocker, such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, instead of a sunscreen that uses a chemical blocker. Chemical blockers can irritate the skin.
Another tip -- look for a sunscreen with niacinamide. It can possibly help reduce redness in the face*.

5. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

A good moisturizer can help ease redness and irritation. Choosing the right kind is key.  "A barrier repair cream, such as one that contains ceramides, can help restore the skin," Martin says. Ceramides are proteins found in the fat layer of the skin that help prevent water loss.
Doctors also recommend you choose creams over lotions. Lotions often have ingredients that can dry your skin.

6. Use Warm Water

When taking a shower or washing your face, its important warm water instead of hot. Hot water drys out the skin, and heat is also a common trigger for irritation of your rosacea.

7. Use a Gentle Touch

Use your fingertips when washing your skin or applying creams or makeup -- and be gentle. Rubbing or scrubbing your skin will cause more redness and irritation. Washcloths and sponges can also bother your skin.
After washing, use a soft cotton towel to pat your skin slightly dry. Let you skin air dry fully before putting on any medicine, creams, or makeup. This helps prevent stinging or burning.

8. Choose Makeup Carefully

Makeup can help hide signs of rosacea. But many types of makeup can leave your skin dry and irritated.
Mineral-based makeup is a good choice for people with rosacea.* It doesn’t contain preservatives or other additives that can irritate the skin.
A foundation that has silicone will help protect your skin. And some makeup comes tinted with a green or yellow base to help hide redness. As with other skin care products, look for simple ingredients.

9. Take Care of All Your Skin

Although rosacea usually only affects the face, don’t ignore the rest of your skin. People with rosacea may also have sensitive skin on other parts of the body.
It is recommend using the same gentle, neutral products on all areas of the body.
