If you’ve been diagnosed with rosacea, you should amend your skincare routine as well as switch your products for managing your rosacea. By following the below given tips you can keep your rosacea in check:
Avoid rosacea irritants
Stay away from rosacea irritants. Certain skincare and beauty products can such as astringents, toners and exfoliants are notorious for aggravating rosacea skin. The ingredients you should avoid in your skincare line include alcohol, clove oil, witch hazel, camphor, menthol, eucalyptus oil, salicylic acid, sodium lauryl sulfate and peppermint. Stop using any products that hurt, burn or irritate your skin. Fragrance can also irritate rosacea, so always use aroma-free cosmetics and products.
Cut back on use of chemical-based products
The harsh chemicals present in skincare products oftentimes cause irritate your already infected skin, so cutting back on the use of chemical-based products can help a lot to treat your skin condition. Simplify your skincare routine to make it possible to limit the use of chemical based products.
Try the products before buying
When it comes to buy a new product, head to a store that allows you to try out the product before paying for it. Test a little product on neck to determine if you have a reaction. If your skin reacts, leave that product and look for any gentler one.
Don’t scrub your face while cleansing as you don’t want to exacerbate your rosacea. Instead, cleanse light-handedly with your fingertips, using warm water and a gentle cleanser.
Let your skin air dry
Don’t apply moisturizer or sunscreen right away after taking shower or cleansing your skin. The reason is that your skin is more absorbent while wet and product can get deep into your skin, causing it to irritate more. Also make sure to apply your rosacea medication first before you put on any skincare products.
