The Best-Selling Products For Sensitive, Redness-Prone Skin and Rosacea
The National Rosacea Society estimates more than 16 million Americans are affected by rosacea, a skin condition with an onset that often begins after age 30. It’s characterized by redness or flushing on the face that comes and goes and can become more severe over time, especially if it goes untreated. Unfortunately, there is no known cure, but there are ways to combat the symptoms. April is National Rosacea Awareness month, and to shed light on the cause, Dermstore Medical Director Dr. Ashley Magovern rounded up her best advice for rosacea and redness-prone skin, which you can check out at the Dermstore blog. Here, we spotlight a few rosacea-geared products that Dermstore editors love. While they’re all designed to be super gentle and easy on the skin, talking with your dermatologist about your rosacea or irritation concerns should definitely be your first course of action. Once you’re squared away, check out these soothing, redness-reducing products to help combat or lessen future flare-ups.
