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.

Tips for Avoiding Flare-ups in a Car

Sun exposure stands at the top of the list for rosacea triggers, and if you suffer from rosacea, you may unknowingly be overlooking one of the biggest culprits for exposure in your day-to-day activities: driving! Here are some tips to keep in mind.

  • Stay calm. Stress is another top rosacea trigger, and during “road rage” your heart rate goes up, breathing accelerates, sweat production increases and your blood vessels dilate. Avoid a flare-up due to the stress of driving by practicing calming techniques.
