Learn how keeping a journal and other lifestyle tips can help reduce rosacea flares.

If you believe that you might have rosacea or have been diagnosed with rosacea, the following tips can help:

  1. See a dermatologist. This is important for the following reasons:

    • Learn what triggers your rosacea. Many everyday things can cause rosacea to flare. These include sunlight, stress, and many foods and beverages. What causes one person’s rosacea to flare may not trigger a flare-up for another person. This is why dermatologists recommend that patients with rosacea learn what triggers their flare-ups. Avoiding these triggers can reduce flare-ups.

  2. Follow a rosacea skin-care plan. Skin care plays an important role in keeping rosacea under control. Many skin care products are too harsh. This can make rosacea worse.
