Picking The Right Sunscreen for Rosacea and the Environment

The American Cancer Society estimates that nearly 3.5 million Americans were diagnosed with skin cancer in 2019, making this risk associated with sun exposure a very compelling reason for protecting yourself from the sun. Yet for rosacea patients there is even more reason for sun protection, as sun exposure is one of the most common triggers for rosacea flare-ups.

Best Practices for Using Makeup on Rosacea Skin

Makeup and skincare products may sometimes seem intimidating or downright risky for someone dealing with sensitive skin, but the ability to safely disguise rosacea’s symptoms can be an empowering weapon in the arsenal of any rosacea patient.

Here are a few tips for those hoping to use makeup to reduce the outward effects of rosacea on their appearance and maintain a healthy skincare routine.

Shaving Tips for Men

Although rosacea is diagnosed up to three times more often in women, men with rosacea must deal with a skincare challenge of their own: shaving, which may lead to irritation and intensify skin problems. Here are a few shaving tips for rosacea patients with sensitive skin. 

  • Consider using an electric razor to avoid the irritation of a dull razor blade. 

  • Make sure you have plenty of time set aside to shave. Don’t rush! Rushing increases the chance of mistakes, cuts and further skin irritation.
