Skin Care Tips for Rosacea
Cleansing face twice and moisturizing daily, protecting your skin from the sun, choosing rosacea friendly products, testing the products, and being gentle are tips to take care of rosacea. Natalie Suarez, Physician Assistant with Sunset Dermatology, says testing products is important, because a lot of patients with rosacea do not tolerate products well.
She recommends testing it on the neck and not on the center of your face to see the reaction to it. She also explains when patients have redness in the skin, the first thing they want to do is getting the biggest foundation they can find and cover their skin up, but they are harming themselves because it is aggravating their rosacea. She suggests using products geared towards sensitive skin.
