Rosacea Prevention

Prevention

Preventing rosacea can be difficult. If you have rosacea, there are several steps you can take to control the condition:

  • Avoid things that may trigger flushing or blushing. This includes certain foods, alcohol, and exposure to the sun.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. Use clothing, hats, or sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
  • Exercise in a cool environment to avoid overheating.
  • Avoid anything that irritates your skin:
    • Apply topical medications, moisturizers, and cosmetics very gently
    • Use cleansers, moisturizers, cosmetics, and other toiletries that are gentle and alcohol-free
