For Rosacea Awareness Month, April 2020, we asked our dermatologists for their top lifestyle tips to limit rosacea flare-ups.
Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto dermatologist
Pay attention to your skin and use a skin diary to determine which triggers flare your rosacea. Minimizing stress and triggers such as spicy foods can be helpful.
No picking or squeezing of pimples is key.
I think gentle skin care is important – this includes a mild cleanser (not soap) and moisturizing in the evenings, and a sunscreen in the mornings.
Having a dermatologist is worthwhile as there are many great treatments now available.
Being part of an educational support group like ARSC is also important to find out what’s new with your condition for prevention and treatment.
