While there is no absolute cure for rosacea, creating a lifestyle and habits centered around addressing rosacea symptoms can provide immense relief to rosacea sufferers. By monitoring and minimizing triggers, developing a twice-daily skincare practice with products dedicated to relieving and preventing rosacea symptoms, and working with a dermatologist to find the best treatment for you, rosacea patients can find relief and uncover clear skin!
To help you navigate your way through the symptoms and flare-ups of rosacea, here's a breakdown of a dermatologist-recommended AM and PM skincare regimen:
For a morning skincare regimen, board certified dermatologist, Dr. Lily Talakoub, recommends skipping the possible dryness a cleanser can cause and, instead, rinsing with room-temperature water before patting your face dry. Next, apply a moisturizer to maintain the natural moisture barrier, your first line of defense against rosacea triggers. A fragrance-free moisturizer with antioxidants, skin-soothers, and barrier support goes one step further to prevent and relieve flare-ups. SkinKure Rosacea Cream Light does it all, plus the high concentration of green tea-derived caffeine aids circulation and targets dilated capillaries to soothe redness at its source. Sunscreen is absolutely the most important step in the daily routine of anyone with rosacea (and without!). Protecting already sensitive skin from additional heat and radiation is key to prevent worsening rosacea symptoms and permanent redness Dr. Lily recommends a broad-spectrum mineral-based sunscreen with at least SPF 30, but preferably SPF 50 with a tint for maximum protection from UVA, UVB, and visible light (“blue light”).
Before bed, Dr. Lily Talakoub recommends washing with a gentle cleanser. SkinKure Calming Cleanser doesn’t foam like other, harsher washes and delivers essential nutrients and antioxidants to soothe as it cleanses. SkinKure Rosacea Cream Heavy locks in hydration and treats redness as you sleep with its richer, silky texture. Sometimes, localized areas are so sensitized, they need some additional healing care that only Avéne Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream can deliver.
