There are a few different ways that you can treat, reduce, and even eliminate rosacea. A few of the most common treatments are:
Rosacea does not like the sun, so don’t let your skin get charred.
Your skin is always exposed to the sun, so keep it protected. We recommend using a moisturizer with SPF 50 or higher. Always, always, always apply SPF on your skin before leaving the house—no matter if you’re taking the dog for a walk, headed to the beach, or getting ready for work. I like to use the Tinted Physical SPF because it covers up the redness, calms the skin, and evens out your skin tone. In fact on some occasions I have worn this at night if I am going to be drinking and know my face will have redness.
No matter if you’re the boss or not, everyone experiences stress in their daily life. Take some time out of your day to ensure that your stress doesn’t get too out of hand.
A simple 10-minute break from the daily grind can help your mind and body relax, keeping your rosacea at bay.
If you’re one to overheat or if you live in an area with unpredictable climate changes, you’re more susceptible to rosacea flare-ups. There are a few ways to help with unpredictable temperature temperatures to keep your body cool.
Try dressing in layers so you can build your outfit to the right temperature. Rather than drinking hot beverages like coffee, try iced coffee or tea. Ensure your shower temperature is reasonable. Using extremely hot water may not be the best idea.
Because rosacea can be different for everyone, it’s important to listen to your body.
Keep a daily log for a few months with notes of what you did, ate, and used on your skin. This might help determine your personal cause of flare-ups, so you can better treat them in the future.
Finding the right skin care products for your particular skin type is key for happy and healthy skin.
Skip the drugstore and pick up a higher-quality skin care product that is made with ingredients your skin craves, not rejects.
If you’ve tried all of these and you’re still coming up short, it’s time to book a dermatologist appointment. Before you talk to your doctor, ensure that you express some commonalities in your flare-ups. This might help your doctor find better treatments for you.
There you have it—a solid start at understanding and treating rosacea. Skin care can be difficult, especially if your vanity is stocked with products that aren’t right for your skin. We can help you find the best products for sensitive skin and ensure your rosacea goes away.
