Face Cream for Rosacea

If you suffer from rosacea, you likely struggle with red or flushed skin and bumps that can make it difficult to feel confident in your skin. Instead of facing blotchy, irritated skin, you can use a variety of products to help control your condition. Applying the right moisturizer, sunscreen, and face cream for rosacea are the first steps to improving your complexion. Luckily, Colorescience has formulated a range of gentle skincare products that are perfect for those who battle rosacea, including our award-winning All Calm® Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50



What is the best face moisturizer for rosacea?

Moisturizer is a critical component of any rosacea sufferers’ skincare routine because it creates a protective barrier and helps prevent dryness that’s often associated with the condition. The best face moisturizer for rosacea is one that is light, hydrating, and free of irritants. When trying to find a moisturizer for rosacea, you should look for one with ingredients that are calming, like the flower water found in our Hydrating Mist.

The most important thing to keep in mind when selecting a moisturizer for rosacea is to test it on a small patch of skin first to ensure that it won’t cause a big flare-up.


What creams are used to treat rosacea?

An anti-pigmentation cream can be helpful in treating rosacea because these creams include ingredients that can help neutralize discoloration, including redness caused by the condition.

Those with rosacea tend to have highly reactive skin, so you need to exercise caution when choosing skincare products. When buying a face cream for rosacea, you should look for ingredients that are gentle like zinc oxide and stay away from irritating products that include alcohol, fragrances, and lactic acid. You also want a moisturizer that is non-comedogenic so it does not clog your pores.

Our All Calm® Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50 is formulated to soothe skin, immediately correcting redness while providing continuous relief and protection from irritation. Plus, it protects your skin from UV rays, which are one of the biggest triggers for rosacea, with powerful SPF.


How do I get rid of rosacea on my face?

While rosacea can be managed, there currently isn’t a permanent cure for this skin condition.

First and foremost, since sun exposure is a common trigger of rosacea, you should use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher any time you’re exposed to the sun. In addition to regularly using face cream for rosacea, our sunscreen for sensitive skin can also help prevent flare-ups without causing additional redness or irritation. Using our All Calm® Corrective Kit for Redness is the perfect solution for those with rosacea because it has been specifically designed to help manage redness and sensitivity while also protecting your skin with SPF.

Even though you can’t necessarily get rid of rosacea, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for blotchy skin. Colorescience has formulated a primer for sensitive skin that provides a fair amount of coverage and is gentle on easily irritated skin. Alternatively, our foundation for sensitive skin provides great coverage for when your rosacea flare-ups are especially noticeable.


Does drinking water help rosacea?

While drinking water is not necessarily a solution for rosacea, it does keep your skin healthy and moisturized which can help reduce irritation. On the other hand, there are some dietary measures that can directly help with rosacea, including reducing your consumption of alcohol and spicy foods.

Many rosacea sufferers are not aware that the ingredients in their favorite skin products may actually be making their condition worse. Use Colorescience products like our customer-favorite All Calm® Corrective Kit for Redness, which includes a skin cream for rosacea, because we specialize in non-irritating formulas that stay away from harsh chemicals and fragrances — and focus on improving your complexion.
