Can Rosacea on the Face be Cured?

If you are someone struggling with red patches, inflammation, and/or bumps on the face, chances are you are grappling with rosacea. It is a common skin condition, affecting an estimated 5% of the world’s population, predominantly among people with fair skin. At first, redness associated with rosacea may fade and reappear periodically, but over time, the redness usually stays and becomes more noticeable. It can even lead to dilated blood vessels, facial swelling, thickened skin with enlarged pores, and even eye inflammation.

If this is you, you may be looking for remedies to cure your skin before it gets to this point. While rosacea is chronic, it can be effectively managed through a combination of lifestyle changes, certain skin care or cosmetics, and in extreme cases, medical rosacea treatment. 

First and foremost, those who have this condition should be aware of their rosacea triggers. Check out our blog post titled, “Beyond the Blush: Navigating Triggers and Treatment Options for Rosacea” to learn about the possible triggers connected to rosacea. 

Studies have shown that frequent cleansing and constantly rotating cleansers are positively correlated with rosacea face. That is why dermatologists encourage patients with rosacea to practice gentle skin care, as well as because their skin is sensitive and can be easily irritated. There should be moderation in cleansing and moisturizing, and sunscreen should never be forgotten.

It's important to use lukewarm water on the face to prevent any vascular reactions. Also, avoid rubbing your face with a towel while drying as well as peeling and blood-flow stimulating products. A lot of anti-aging products promote blood-flow stimulation, so try to steer clear of them. Mineral oils should be avoided as well, as it can lead to the worsening of the complexion. Remember to follow up with moisturizer after cleansing to maintain skin hydration!

Those with rosacea should also apply sunscreen daily, as UV radiation is another big and common trigger. If you will be outside all day, lean towards sunscreens that protect against both UVA and UVB rays, and aim for an SPF of 30 or higher.

A general, good rule to follow is the ABC rule:

  • A - avoid the sun

  • B - blanket unprotected body parts

  • C - apply sun protection cream
