Vanessa Gibbs

Those of us with the telltale red cheeks of rosacea know how it feels to search for skincare products. You don’t want to aggravate your already inflamed and sensitive skin, yet you want to find something that can tackle the red patches. 

Here at Face Dr, our skin experts have plenty of experience—some of them over a decade—in treating clients with skincare concerns like rosacea. So to help those looking for products that can help, we’ve rounded up the best skincare brands out there with products designed to reduce redness, soothe sensitive skin and stop any discomfort. 

But first, what exactly is rosacea? 

 

What is rosacea? 

 

Rosacea is a common skin condition that sees red patches come up on the face, usually on the nose and cheeks. This redness could be permanent or come and go with a variety of triggers like stress, alcohol and sun exposure. 

As well as redness on the face, you may also experience: 

  • Broken blood vessels 
  • Dry patches 
  • A stinging or burning sensation 
  • Large open pores 

Rosacea is harmless, but many of us just don’t like the look of it. Luckily, there are products out there that can reduce both the look and discomfort of rosacea. Here’s where to start.
