Before we explore skincare treatments and lifestyle choices, it’s best to distinguish between redness and rosacea. While redness can be a symptom of Rosacea, not every person who has redness has Rosacea. If you believe you suffer from Rosacea, we recommend consulting with a dermatologist. Don’t self-diagnose! You may need medication and skincare is just one part of your treatment plan. There is often a strong genetic link so make sure to keep an eye out for symptoms if some of your family members have the condition.
While there is no miraculous cure, there are precautions you can take. Stress, alcohol, spicy food, sun exposure and wind can make symptoms worse. Makeup and harsh chemicals in skincare can also be disruptive and it’s best to only use cosmetics and products that are for sensitive skin.
