Rosacea can be a very temperamental skin condition to treat.

The initial treatment for rosacea is to avoid known triggers, or factors that make symptoms worse.

These factors can be unique to every individual but the most important step is to avoid exposure to the sun.
So apply sunscreen daily, preferably a physical one that doesn’t contain chemicals.

Go for products that contain plenty of anti-inflammatories , antioxidants and barrier-protecting ingredients.

In my opinion, the best ones are:



- Medik8 Red Alert Cleanser or any gentle cleanser

- Neostrata Facial Cleanser

ZENMED Gentle facial cream
