Inside and out: The complete rosacea skin care routine
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition where the blood vessels are permanently dilated. If you suffer from the condition, you’re in good company; rosacea affects at least 16 million people in the United States alone. Although not curable, it is controllable by combining a good rosacea skin care routine, with avoiding the lifestyle factors that can trigger a flare up.
The earlier rosacea is identified and treated with a specific skin care routine, the better the chances are of preventing the condition from becoming worse.
An effective skin care routine for rosacea doesn’t have to be complicated. With the right products, and understanding your own individual triggers, it is possible to keep rosacea at bay for long periods of time.
Here, we take a look at the most effective skin care routine for controlling rosacea, including the best products to use. For a complete approach, we also look at the lifestyle factors that can affect rosacea.

The best rosacea skin care regimen
Rosacea-prone skin is generally very sensitive. The best rosacea skin care regimen is one that does not cause any irritation, soothes and repairs the skin, and protects it from further damage.
What is left out, is as important as what is included
When you have sensitive skin, it is important to be aware of the ingredients in your skin care products. Artificial fragrance, for example, is one of the most common causes of skin irritation. Other ingredients to avoid are SLS and sulfate-based cleansers, propylene glycol, artificial color, certain essential oils, AHAs and L-ascorbic acid.
Be particularly careful when using products that are designed to address other skin concerns, such as anti-aging or anti-acne treatments. Often they contain ingredients that can aggravate rosacea, so check the label first.
At Synergie exfoliating serum Luciderm, is an acid-free serum formulated for use on even the most sensitive skin, and is still gentle enough for everyday use.
Moisturize. Using a good moisturizer not only keeps the skin hydrated and feeling comfortable, but has also been shown to improve the results achieved from rosacea treatments.
Exposure to the sun is a common trigger for rosacea and increases inflammation, so use a moisturizer that also provides sun protection. Synergie ÜberZinc contains 21 percent zinc oxide, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, but also provides broad spectrum sun protection.
Repair and protect. Synergie Vitamin B serum helps to increase the strength of the skin and reduce inflammation, while Ultimate A helps to regulate the formation of healthy blood vessels.
The best skin care routine for rosacea goes further than skin deep
Whilst there is no doubt that choosing the right products is a critical element of creating the best skin care routine for rosacea, it is only one part of the equation. For a complete approach to minimizing and controlling flare-ups, you should also pay attention to the lifestyle factors that can make your condition worse.
To identify your own personal triggers, keep a log of which products you use as part of your regular rosacea skin care routine, as well as your diet and any other factors that may cause a reaction from your skin.
Rosacea occurs as a result of an abnormal increase in blood flow to the face and the dilation of blood vessels. Keep a look out for these common triggers:
Overheating the body.. However you do it, heating up the body is likely to cause a flare-up. Avoid hot baths or saunas, along with intense exercise. You may also want to skip beach vacations and excess exposure to the sun, in favor of sightseeing or cooler climates.
Certain foods and drink. What you eat and drink can have a huge influence on your rosacea. In particular, you should avoid spicy foods and alcohol. Even hot drinks can cause you to flush.
Stress. Emotional stress is another common trigger. Take time out to relax and consider using meditation as a way of relieving stress. You’ll feel better overall and your skin will reap the benefits.
