Serums are great in soothing irritated skin and calming redness. Take note, however, that not all serums are formulated the same way.
To avoid triggering negative skin reactions, pick one that has ingredients with healing properties. Argan, rosehip and jojoba are great choices.
Applying topical products on damp skin can cause a mild stinging sensation on your skin. So, be sure to wait for your face to fully dry before applying anything.
Step 5: Moisturize
Using a moisturizer is a must for skin that’s affected by rosacea. The right moisturizer can create a barrier that can protect your skin against irritants, keeping those nasty symptoms at bay.
Pick a moisturizer with soothing ingredients and avoid those that have fragrance and oil. You can choose from this list if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed.
In case you’re using topical medications for your condition, apply them first after cleansing. Once they have been fully absorbed by the skin, you can use your moisturizer.
Step 6: Use sunscreen
Since sun exposure can cause flare ups, you need to practice sun safety and applying your sunscreen is one good way to start. Choose sunscreens with physical blockers, like titanium and zinc oxide, as they are less likely to irritate your skin.
Apply your sunscreen about 15 to 30 minutes before heading out. Make sure to apply generously and reapply as often as necessary.
