Since I can’t eliminate exercise, I make sure I take a lukewarm shower as soon as possible after a work-out. If I need to do manual labor outside, such as gardening or mowing the lawn, I do it in the early morning, when it’s relatively cool and not too sunny, and I then take a lukewarm shower immediately afterwards. If I can’t get in the shower right away, then I’ll splash my face a few times with cool water.
My husband suggested that, since my flare-ups occur in the evening, they may be related to cooking. He volunteered to start cooking and after a week or so I rarely have evening flare-ups, when previously I was having them every night for 1-2 hours with varying severity. Along with him doing the cooking, I stay out of the kitchen while the stove is on, we open the kitchen windows and use the vent.
I exercise on a recumbent bike -- and use fan and water spray bottle directly to face. Adopting this has meant I do not go bright red, perspire excessively and get facial bumps.
Stay hydrated with water – when I’m dehydrated my rosacea (redness and pimples) appear and are exacerbated. Improves over the day as I re-hydrate and stay hydrated.
