Were you recently diagnosed with rosacea? If so, you may be wondering what to do next. Here are 8 tips that we give our patients with rosacea to help control their condition and feel more comfortable.

Pay Attention To Your Eyes

If you notice any irritation or other eye problems, call your SkinMD provider or eye doctor right away. This is important because more than half the people who have rosacea develop an eye problem at some point. Treating eye problems caused by rosacea can prevent you from developing problems with your eyesight.

Learn What Triggers Your Rosacea

Many everyday occurrences, such as becoming overheated or feeling stressed, can cause rosacea to flare. Anything that causes rosacea to flare is called a trigger.

While there are many rosacea triggers, what triggers one person’s rosacea may not be a trigger for you. It’s important to learn what triggers your rosacea.

Be Gentle With Your Skin

Rosacea can make your skin extremely sensitive. Your skin can feel uncomfortable if you wash your face with a washcloth, use skincare products that contain fragrance or astringents, or even go outdoors without applying sunscreen.

Our experienced team at SkinMD can develop a personalized skincare plan to help with your Rosacea. 

Protect Your Skin From The Sun

Just a few minutes in the sun can cause your rosacea to flare. Protecting your skin from the sun can prevent this from happening. Apply a gentle, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. A fragrance-free sunscreen that contains zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or both is least likely to irritate your sensitive skin. Be sure to ask your SkinMD provider about our in-house SPF products.
