Rosacea Tips

  • Avoid triggers, including: hot drinks, spicy foods, caffeine and alcoholic beverages that make the face red or flushed. Although alcohol can worsen rosacea, the condition may be just as severe in someone who doesn't drink; thus rosacea has been unfairly linked to alcoholism.
  • Practice good sun protection. Seek shade when possible and limit exposure to sunlight, wear hats and use broad spectrum sunscreens/sunblocks with SPF of 30 or higher; reapply every 3 hours. Sunblocks (e.g. zinc oxide & titanium dioxide) are usually better tolerate than chemical sunscreens.
  • Avoid extreme hot and cold temperatures which may exacerbate the symptoms of rosacea. Exercise in a cool environment. Try not to overheat.
  • Avoid rubbing (pat-dry a wet face), scrubbing or massaging the face.
  • Avoid cosmetics and facial products that contain alcohol. Use hair sprays properly, avoiding contact with facial skin.
  • Use a facial cleanser rather than a soap, and moisturize with a fragrance-free product recommended by your dermatologist immediately after washing.
  • Keep a diary of flushing episodes and note associated foods, products, activities, medications or other triggering factors.
