With the fast pace of modern life, it's easy to get off track with your rosacea care. But just like resolving to eat better and exercise more, the new year is the perfect time to revisit your medical therapy and skin care regimen.
If you have been self-treating your condition, make this the year that you commit to seeking medical attention from a dermatologist in your area for a diagnosis and appropriate therapy.
Consistent, gentle skin care and effective use of makeup can also make a visible difference in managing rosacea and improving the look of your skin. The key is to use products and techniques that minimize irritation.
Visit our Skin Care & Cosmetics section as a refresher or to learn more about maintaining a rosacea-friendly skin care regimen, including which ingredients may cause irritation, the types of cleansers that are best for your skin type, and effective makeup techniques.
