What is Rosacea?
You may have rosacea, a skin condition, if your face looks like you're blushing and you get bumps that resemble acne. According to Mayo Clinic, there is no specific test used to diagnose rosacea. Instead, your doctor relies on the history of your symptoms and an examination of your skin. You may have tests to rule out other conditions, such as psoriasis or lupus. Studies show that in people of color, rosacea can be missed or misdiagnosed as an allergic reaction or seborrheic dermatitis. If your symptoms involve your eyes, your doctor may refer you to an eye specialist (ophthalmologist) for evaluation. Treatment for rosacea focuses on controlling signs and symptoms. Most often this requires a combination of good skincare and prescription drugs. The duration of your treatment depends on the type and severity of your signs and symptoms. Recurrence is common. The following are the 5 Basic Yet Critical Skin Care Tips for Rosacea:
#1. Apply Rosacea Face and Body Wash.
If you're already a fan of face and body cleansers, there's no reason to switch up your routine. Just make sure that you're using one that is gentle on your skin and won't cause irritation. It is much better if you will use face and body wash intended to treat rosacea.

#2. Apply Rosacea Face and Body Lotion.
Use a moisturizer that is specifically for rosacea. Remember, the skin is constantly changing and you need to keep up with your regimen. You should use a rosacea-specific face and body lotion that is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and non-irritating. Conditions like dryness will make your rosacea worse so using a moisturizer on a regular basis can help prevent flare-ups and allow you to live your life without having to worry about constant redness or irritation from flaking skin.

#3. Use sunscreen every day.
You should use sunscreen every day, year-round, with SPF 30 or higher. Apply it to your face, neck, and arms 20 minutes before going outside. If you're in the sun for a long time—like if you are playing on the beach all afternoon—you should reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours.
#4. Avoid triggers.
To prevent rosacea, you should avoid triggers that can make symptoms worse. This includes alcohol, hot drinks, spicy foods, and foods that are high in fat. It's also important to avoid sun exposure by wearing a hat or using sunscreen when outdoors. Avoid extremes in temperature: hot weather and cold temperatures can irritate your face. Try to keep it as close to room temperature as possible throughout the day (72°F).
#5. Don't touch your face.
If you have rosacea, it's important to avoid touching your face. This can cause flare-ups and redness. Avoiding touching your face will reduce the risk of spreading bacteria around your skin, which leads to inflammation and irritation. If you do not have a handkerchief or tissue on hand, then don't touch your face with unwashed hands. Wash them first! Instead, use a gentle makeup remover or skincare product that does not contain harsh chemicals or fragrances; this way there is less chance of causing an allergic reaction or irritation from whatever ingredients were used in those products (like perfume).
Rosacea can be managed with daily skincare and other lifestyle changes.
