How to Treat Rosacea: Your Complete Guide

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

Did you know that the National Rosacea Society states that as many as 415 million people in the world may suffer from rosacea?

Rosacea is one of the most common skin affliction in the world, meaning everyone wants to know how to get rid of rosacea.

Read our quick summary to learn if you have rosacea, and how you can treat it.

What Is Rosacea?

The clearest sign of rosacea is a persistent redness across your face, usually around your nose and cheeks.

This affected skin may also be more susceptible to pimples, so it may also be accompanied by red bumps. The entire area may be somewhat swollen.

Ocular rosacea affects the eyes. It can lead to dry and itchy eyes and may cause the skin around your eyes to swell and turn red.

How to Get Rid of Rosacea

One of the simplest ways to treat rosacea is to find a quality rosacea cream.

Dr. Noelani Gonzelez is the director of cosmetic dermatology at Mount Sinai West, located in New York City.

Dr. Gonzalez states that "[Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser] is very gentle on reactive or sensitive skin, which most patients with rosacea have. It also contains feverfew, an ingredient known to decrease redness and help with irritation."

If that doesn't work, there are many other types of rosacea medication creams that have been scientifically proven to help treat rosacea and its symptoms.

There may be no one best moisturiser for rosacea because each person's skin is somewhat different. In fact, some people may be using products that actually make their rosacea worse.

If you're looking for how to reduce redness on the face, this list of moisturisers may do the trick.

The list includes Best Natural: Naturopathica Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream, which it says is a "more natural option."

Some people are allergic to the calendula cream in it, but if you're lucky enough not to be, then it can be a powerful tool to soothe and heal your skin.

Creams and moisturisers can be simple to get and use. But if you're looking for a more intensive treatment, then a skin peel may be the best rosacea treatment for you.

Many skin peels are designed around the use of salicylic acid. Salicyclic acid is also used to treat acne and is known to help decrease inflammation and redness.

You'll want to apply your skin peel to clean skin. However, be careful not to excessively clean your skin, which may dry it out.

As an aside, excessive cleaning of the skin, in general, can cause inflammation and exacerbate rosacea. Your skin is full of natural oils it needs to help keep your skin naturally moisturised.

The biggest factor is education around the skin. At Dr Aesthetica, we love to educate and explain how different products can help to manage rosacea. Alumier MD has a track record of helping those struggling with rosacea as all their ingredients are aimed to deal with rosacea.
