Skincare Tips For Those Who Have Rosacea: #Rosacea #Skincare

If you have rosacea, you have to treat your skin with tender, loving care.

Check out these skincare tips from New York City dermatologist and Clinical Associate Professor New York University Langone Medical Center, Dr. Doris Day:

Calm the Skin

Skin with rosacea is more sensitive and likely to react to ingredients in both prescription medications and skin care products, so talk to your dermatologist about what options are best for you. Moisturizers containing lipids, such as ceramides, are usually well tolerated and can improve the skin barrier, which is often compromised in people with this condition.

Be Picky About Sun Protection

It's a fact that daily sunscreen is a must, but not all sunscreens are created equal. Not only are some better than others, but many contain ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin with rosacea. The best bets if you are prone to rosacea, are sunscreens that contain transparent zinc oxide and moisturizing ingredients, like niacinamide, and are fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.

Eat and Sleep Well,Stay Hydrated

It may sound basic but not getting enough sleep can make you look older because sleep is when your body repairs itself.Alcohol, sugary foods and processed foods can affect the skin’s ability to repair itself and cause premature skin aging, so try to eat a balanced diet and indulge rarely. For the occasional late night out, alternate a glass of water or carbonated water with every alcoholic beverage.
