Rosacea patients often must take special precautions in caring for their sensitive skin. Here are some general guidelines:
- Treat your skin gently. Avoid rough washcloths, loofahs, brushes, sponges and hot water, especially hot showers.
- Let your face rest. After blotting your face dry, wait a few minutes before applying topical medication. Then allow the medication to dry for five to 10 minutes before applying any make-up.
