Skincare for Rosacea, Common FAQs About It – Healthline
Why does your skincare routine matter each day? Not taking care of your skin — which could mean under- or over-washing, neglecting to moisturize, or skipping sunscreen — can make rosacea worse, says Michele Green, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist in Healthline’s piece titled “7 FAQs About Caring for Rosacea-Prone Skin.”
From Aloe to Vitamins, as well as potential signs that might suggest that a skin care product is making your rosacea worse, she is quoted throughout the article and advises on how to take a patch test – for example:
- Apply a small amount of the product to your inner arm, wrist, or neck once or twice (depending on product)
- Observe your skin over coming day for any signs of a negative reaction and repeat this process for several days
- If your skin shows no signs of irritation after one week of daily testing, it’s probably safe to use.
And if any irritation is felt after testing, wash the product off as soon as possible.
