Rosacea prevention tips

To avoid rosacea flares, practice the following:

  1. Know what your triggers are

From beauty products, stress, harsh weather conditions, and heat, anything can flare rosacea. For example, if you notice the flares occurring sometime when you are out of a cold shower, try taking a warm bath. Whatever you do, avoid obsessive scratching or scrubbing as this can worsen it.

  1. Moisturize your skin

Your skin needs essential oils to remain healthy. Denying your skin of essential oils can cause persistent rosacea flare-ups. To prevent this, apply a moisturizer at least twice a day. Remember, the type of moisturizer you use can increase or reduce the flares. Therefore, it would be best to go for a product that lacks oil, fragrance and is hypoallergenic. The fewer ingredients your moisturizer has, the better your chances of avoiding flares.

  1. Cleanse your skin

Any product can aggravate a flare-up from the type of moisturizer or cleanser you choose for your skin. While most manufacturers claim their products do not contain harsh cleaner ingredients, it would be best to go with those that lack complicated ingredients. To be on the safer side, choose an oil-free fragrance-free ad hypoallergenic cleanser.

  1. Choose natural-based makeup when possible

It makes perfect sense to conceal your skin flaws with makeup, but what does that help if your skin already has issues that can disappear with natural interventions. Whenever you buy makeup products, study the ingredients. Would you mind making sure they are fragrance-free and contain essential minerals? Choosing makeup with harsh chemicals aggravates not only rosacea but also predisposes your skin to complicated problems. The next time you plan to buy a makeup product, confirm with your dermatologist if it is safe for use.

  1. Protect your skin from the sun’s rays

Did you know that the sun rays trigger rosacea flare more than anything else? Consider applying sunscreen and protective clothing to prevent the sun's rays from accelerating your rosacea condition whenever you go out in the sun. As you decide which sunscreen product to choose, ensure it has physical blocker properties such as titanium or zinc oxide. Whatever the case, ensure the product does not contain any fragrance or predisposes your skin to allergens.

Are you ready for rosacea prevention or treatment?

Even though there is no cure for rosacea, many treatments can help you prevent flares. Sometimes, all it takes to reduce rosacea symptoms are oral, medicals, and topical medications. Whatever the case, the result should justify the means. To learn more about rosacea prevention tips, schedule a consultation with your dermatologist today.
