The Best Products for Rosacea and Redness
Struggling with sensitive skin that’s prone to redness and rosacea? While incredibly common among women of all ages, the true cause of rosacea hasn't exactly been determined, making a cure pretty impossible. (Ugh.) Luckily, you can do something to alleviate and hide the symptoms. Gentle enough not to rock the boat when it comes to your sensitive skin, the following products are perfect for covering up and treating redness on your skin.
Best Face Wash
A non-irritating and paraben-free formula that's made with sensitive skin in mind, this cleanser uses aloe vera and allantoin to soothe the complexion, while lactic acid gently exfoliates.
PCA Skin ($32)
Best Healing Cream
When it comes to instant soothing relief, nearly 4,000 rosacea sufferers swear by this stuff. Infused with squalene and honey, the thick cream can be applied anywhere to help overturn red, dry and itchy skin.
Best Overnight Cream
Although incredibly thick, this overnight cream does wonders on red and sensitive skin. Reviewers say that this turns blotchy, dry skin into glowing, supple skin in a matter of only a couple days.
Mario Badescu ($20)
Best Daily Moisturizer
Although bright in the jar, this botanical blend of oils and blue tansy goes on seamlessly. It instantly infuses skin with a moisture barrier to protect from outside elements while soothing any lingering redness or irritation.
May Lindstrom ($180)
Best Face Mist
If pangs of dryness and irritation pop up throughout your day, this calming rose facial mist is a purse must-have. Spritz directly onto skin for instant relief of extra-drying days.
Teddie Organics ($11)
Best Color Correcting Cream
Don’t be alarmed by the green tint. Once rubbed into your skin, the color fades and instantly neutralizes redness to create an even skin tone on a bare face or under foundation. We were hooked from the very first use.
Dr. Jart+ ($52)
Best Correcting Duo
Because green is complementary color to red (see: the color wheel), it’s able to neutralize fiery pimples or broken capillaries. If a spot treatment is more your speed, this nifty concealer has two application brushes to cover spots of any size.
Estée Lauder ($32)
Best Brightening SPF
Those with rosacea often worry about how to protect from the sun without adding more irritation to their sensitive skin. Enter this base layer, which hundreds of users swear is the most gentle.
For a low-maintenance routine, this tinted moisturizer is rich in colloidal oatmeal, hydrolyzed collagen, aloe and avocado that all work together to camouflage redness and offer full-coverage foundation in one fell swoop.
IT Cosmetics ($32)
