Living with Rosacea: Treatments to Reduce Symptoms

Rosacea is not an easy skin condition to live with. Even though it may not cause any irritation or itching, it can be very embarrassing in some situations. You may feel like you can’t control the redness and rash, but in truth there are a lot of different treatments available to clear your skin so you don’t have to rely on camera filters.

At Home Lifestyle Changes

There are some things you can do at home to reduce the symptoms associated with rosacea. These include avoiding triggers such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Spicy foods
  • Hot baths or drinks
  • Most cosmetics and common skincare products

It is also important to reduce your stress as much as possible. The more emotional or physical stress you are under, the worse your rosacea will be. However, there are also triggers you can’t control, such as the weather and other pain that can contribute to stress and symptoms.
