Tips to Manage your Rosacea

Even if you are currently treating Rosacea, the right skin care regimen can make a world of difference.   Here are some tips for improving how your skin feels, reduce rosacea flare-ups, and boost your skins health.  Here are a few tips:
1- Cleanse your skin very gently twice daily– Once each morning and night because oil and dirt can irritate your already irritated skin.  Make sure to choose a gentle cleanser, using circular motions to rub onto skin, since off with lukewarm water, and pat dry your skin.
2- Moisturize every day- Moisturizing your skin helps trap water in your skin.  It can reduce the irritation and dryness.
3-Protect your skin year round from the sun– The sun worsens Rosacea.  Wearing sunscreen can reduce rosacea flare-ups.
4-Choose rosacea friendly skin care products- when choosing skin care products, read the ingredients before you buy.  Avoid anything that contains: Alcohol, Camphor, Fragrance, Glycolic acid, Lactic acid, Menthol, Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Urea
5-Test skin care products and makeup before applying them to your face- If you have never tried a product, testing can help.  Dab a small amount near your rosacea-prone skin.  if it irritates your skin within 72 hours you will know not to use it.
6-Be gentle with your skin- Anything that irritates your skin can worsen your rosacea.  Avoid rubbing or scrubbing.
We also offer laser treatments to help decrease Rosacea flares by targeting those unwanted blood vessels that cause the flushing and redness.  If you have additional questions about treatment options or products to use call our office at 208-522-SKIN.
