For many, rosacea is more than just a lot of redness. According to the National Rosacea Society, rosacea symptoms include acne-like bumps, eye irritation, and thickened skin. Fortunately, there are many ways to manage rosacea and skin redness! 

In this article, we've listed down different ways that you can help keep your skin redness and rosacea under control!  

Rosacea and Skin Redness Management Tips


Sun protection

Sun exposure is one of the most common causes of rosacea flare-ups and redness. Use a fragrance-free sunscreen with SPF 30 or even higher when you're going outside. Remember to check if your sunscreen has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide since those will not irritate sensitive skin. Check out our  Sunscreen collection


Use a moisturiser

Don't skimp out on moisturiser as well! Moisturiser helps create a barrier that can lock out irritants and help you manage your rosacea symptoms. However, you must choose one that helps manage redness and rosacea. Get an oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic moisturiser from our Moisturiser collection! 


Check medications 

If you think your medication is making you flare up, we recommend you communicate with your doctor about alternatives. Plenty of treatments for rosacea are often topical, such as creams, lotions, and oral medications. 


Use mineral makeup and skincare

You must be careful when choosing your makeup and skincare. Avoid ones that have fragrances, like the fragrance-free Lait-Crème Sensitive. Use skincare and makeup products that are mineral-based since they will not be irritating to your skin. You should check in with your dermatologist before purchasing a makeup and skincare product. Thankfully, we've got makeup and skincare made from gentler ingredients in our Makeup and Skincare collections, too! 
We recommend the Sensifine AR Anti-Redness Cream, SVR Sensifine AR Anti-Redness Micellar Water, and Sensibio AR Anti-Redness Cream.


Reduce stress

Stress can be another reason for flare-ups. You can reduce stress levels in many ways, like tai chi or meditation. Breathing techniques, journaling, and exercising can help reduce stress and clarify such moments. 


Be careful of what you put into your body

You need to be cautious of a lot of food if you have rosacea. Opt for milder food. If you want to drink, you can drink white wine instead of red wine since it has less alcohol. You can also limit your alcohol intake by 1-2 glasses. Another way to manage is to opt for colder drinks than hot ones since they might trigger your rosacea.
