How to Manager Rosacea and Get the Skin You Deserve

Life with rosacea is a never-ending series of unexpected turns. And it’s not like you don’t have things to do. If it’s not a laundry list of things to do at work, then it’s meals to prepare, hungry kids to feed, and a list of chores that seem endless. A rosacea flare-up can make all those things ten times worse.

Fortunately, with a little experimentation and a lot of care, you can get a clear, flare-free complexion. Here is our best advice for keeping rosacea under control and living your best life!

Harsh Weather Is The Enemy!

Any extreme temperatures might affect your skin and cause a rosacea flare. To protect yourself, make sure you’ve got tools to protect yourself. The first thing in your toolkit should be a broad-spectrum sunscreen with zinc oxide, which is one of the more gentle active ingredients. Sun exposure can be a big trigger, so even if you’re wearing sunscreen, make sure to keep a hat just in case you can’t find any shade!

For cold weather, keep your face covered when you’re outside. Choose a soft scarf, one that isn’t made of rough fibers like wool, to make sure your skin doesn’t get irritated!

Avoid these ingredients

If you have rosacea, it’s important to keep a skincare routine simple. Many products contain ingredients that could irritate your skin and make the condition worse, so when shopping, be sure to read labels carefully. Here’s a list of ingredients to avoid in hair and skincare:

Any of these ingredients make you more vulnerable to flareups, so avoid them and stick to gentle cleansers and moisturizers.

Track your food

Unfortunately, rosacea isn’t just triggered by extreme weather. Flare-ups may also be caused by certain food and drink! Spicy foods like peppers are the most likely culprits, but also coffee and sodas in some cases. Anything spicy or with a lot of caffeine is in the danger zone. It’s different for everyone, though, so keep a food journal so that you can notice patterns in your flares.
