Top 5 Moisturisers for Rosacea

rosacea moisturiser

According to numerous dermatologists, using a moisturiser is essential in preventing the discomfort of rosacea such as burning, stinging, itching, and irritation. Additionally, a moisturiser helps create a robust protective barrier that keeps out pollutants and irritants that might exacerbate delicate skin.

Rosacea is characterized by a compromised moisture barrier in the facial skin, leading to increased transepidermal water loss and heightened skin sensitivity to irritants. This condition often presents itself after the age of 30, when the skin naturally becomes drier. It is not uncommon for individuals with rosacea to experience dry skin, and winter months can exacerbate this issue further due to the dry air both indoors and outdoors.

Used regularly, moisturisers can help strengthen your skin barrier — and also help calm inflammation and combat dryness.

Choose products with skin-friendly ingredients like ceramides, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and antioxidants.
