Having rosacea means your skin tends to blush more, especially around your cheeks. You may also find that it swells more easily and becomes dry more frequently. With this skin condition, it can become challenging to find the right skincare routine to help ease the symptoms.
Here are 5 rosacea skincare tips that can help.
Be Consistent With Cleansing
If you are feeling a bit lazy in the morning or at night, you may choose to just wash your face with water and call it a day. But, this can irritate your rosacea as there is nothing on your skin helping to soothe it. Aim to cleanse your face twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Choosing a mild cleanser and gently washing your face in a circular motion can help to soothe your skin and prevent your rosacea from acting up.
Don’t Forget To Moisturize
Moisturizer helps to keep your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. Since rosacea tends to create dry skin, using moisturizer can help settle your skin. It can also help to repair your skin barrier, which can make the appearance of your rosacea less visible. So, make sure you choose a rosacea friendly moisturizer, and apply it 2-3 times every day.
Apply SPF Everyday
When your skin burns it turns red and irritates your rosacea. This can prolong how long your rosacea is active. And, you don’t want your skin to be burnt as it damages the skin barrier further. Apply SPF everyday to your skin, especially to your face, to prevent your skin from burning or suffering other sun damage. This can help prevent any rosacea flare ups, even if you are not in the sun. Try a sunscreen that is gentle and has a high SPF for ultimate protection.
