It is not known what causes rosacea and there is no cure, but there are products and treatment to help deal with this condition and help to control it. Here are five tips to control rosacea symptoms:
- Don’t be afraid to use skin care products: It is important to use a gentle cleanser and to be gentle with your skin and use lukewarm water for rinsing after cleansing – not cold or hot water.
- Keep your skin care routine simple: Don’t use exfoliants or abrasive towels to wash or dry your skin.
- Be gentle with your skin: Let you skin dry before applying any serums or treatments and then wait approximately 10 minutes before applying your moisturizer, sunscreen, or make-up.
- Use sunscreen daily: It is important to wear a sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher and to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Sun exposure is one of the top triggers of rosacea.
- Your doctor knows best: If untreated, rosacea and the red-face and acne-like effects are not only physically uncomfortable; they may cause psychological, social and occupational issues if not treated. We do suggest seeing a doctor to have a diagnosis and the appropriate treatment prescribed.
