Before diving deeper into the best treatments for rosacea, you should first understand what it is and how it comes to be. Rosacea is just another fancy word for ‘adult acne’.

Many of the same things that caused acne as a teenager can continue to cause acne as an adult. Rather than referring to it as acne, professionals coined the term ‘rosacea’.

With that in mind, you should now realize that anyone can suffer from rosacea because anyone can suffer from acne. A newborn infant can suffer from rosacea, as can a senior citizen or a woman in the prime of her life. There is no boundary, borders, or limitations when it comes to rosacea.

As with most acne, rosacea is caused by bacteria that gets beneath the skin and clogs pores. As these clogs pores attempt to exfoliate, it causes confusion, which leads to inflammation and the formation of pimples or noticeable redness in the skin.

Does that mean your childhood acne treatment will remove your rosacea? Well, it’s unlikely, but it is actually possible. It depends on how the treatment handled the acne. It’s best to find adult solutions to treat rosacea; a few of which are mentioned below, as well as some good ideas for preventing outbreaks all together.

1. Avoid Irritants

beerJust like acne, rosacea can be quickly triggered by certain irritants. Some of the most common irritants of rosacea are alcohol, fragrances, menthol, and hazel.

You should avoid all of these ingredients in your next meal if you are already suffering from rosacea.

Eating any of these foods or dinking the alcohol can cause serious breakouts on an otherwise smooth surface. Even people who may not know they have rosacea can experience a breakout when consuming one of these serious irritants.

Alcohol seems to do the most damage to the skin and should be avoided at all costs. If you have sensitive skin, which is something you would know, then you want to put twice as much effort into avoiding these irritants.

2. Avoid Fragrances.

There’s nothing wrong with using skin-care products: it’s something that almost everyone does and many of these products can actually help fight rosacea. However, you should always choose products that are made without any additional fragrances.

Many recent studies have revealed that the chemicals used to create fragrances in these products will actually trigger a serious reaction in patients who suffer from rosacea.

Testing Products.It’s been shown that fragrances cause more frequent allergic reactions on the skin than any other ingredient.

Allergens love finding and sticking to the skin, which can often trigger a rosacea outbreak.

Use products that are free from fragrances and allergy-tested. This will help remove a lot of the risk and a lot of the triggers that linger around the average home.

On another note, don’t confuse the two separate terms “hypoallergenic” and “allergy tested” because they are two different things.

3. Testing Products.

If you’re genuinely interested in finding the best ways to avoid rosacea outbreaks, then you should always consider testing any new products before applying them to the face. Try applying them to an area of the neck or arm where an outbreak would not be as visible, noticeable, or serious.

If you notice a slight reaction on the tested area, then you know that you definitely shouldn’t apply the product to the skin. However, if you apply the product without any negative reaction, then you can safely apply it to the face with less risk.
