I’d say it’s a combo of not using irritants (fragrance, essential oils, some preservatives), using daily broad spectrum sun protection + adding a few actives like azelaic acid, possibly niacinamide (if you tolerate it, and at a 2-6% concentration - not higher), and maybe even a retinal (a retinoid less likely to cause irritation). How does your current routine look like?


It would be great if you could your current skincare using this tool, this way it would be easier to review: https://whatsinmyjar.com/user/skincare-routines/create


Thank you, I don't actually have a routine, I just wash my face daily with body shop camomile cleansing butter, I've always been quite lucky with my skin but I guess as I'm getting older I need to take care of it a bit more (I'm 39)


Is this the cleansing butter you use?: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-body-shop-camomile-sumptuous-cleansing-butter If yes, I'd switch your cleanser it because it contains fragrances - they can be irritating to your skin and make rosacea worse. Instead, one of these gentle fragrance-free cleansers would be a good choice: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/cleansers/cleansers-for-sensitive-skin?exclude_ingredient_group=Coconut-derived%20surfactants&sortBy=Irritancy.

You do not need to use a cleanser in the morning. Just cleansing in the PM, as the first step in your evening routine would be enough.

I'd add a serum with azelaic acid to your routine - could be either in the morning or at night. Azelaic acid can help decrease the redness and help strengthen the skin barrier. A few product options:

Then you need a daily broad spectrum sunscreen to use every morning - sunlight triggers rosacea and can make it worse. I'd recommend to choose smth from these options: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/sunscreens/mineral-sunscreens?sortBy=Irritancy

It's also a good idea to use a moistruizer daily - either both in the morning, before the sunscreen and at night, as the last step of the routine, or just at night if you feel that your sunscreen is moisturizing enough. I'd recommend a moistruizer with niacinamide, a few options here:
