Wash your face with face wash made especially for sensitive skin. Do not use any cleanser that contains alcohol.
Apply noncomedogenic moisturisers to your face. Noncomedogenic means the product will not clog your pores, thus reducing the risk of future outbreaks. Moisturiser is especially important during winter months.
Keep track of triggers that cause outbreaks and try to avoid them in the future. Some common triggers are stress, overheating, rigorous exercise, sun exposure and spicy foods.
Apply lubricating eye drops as often as necessary if the rosacea affects your eyes. A warm, damp washcloth can also be applied to the eyelids for 10 minutes, three times per day to help with eye problems.
