Rosacea Skin Treatment

Heal your rosacea with the right hypoallergenic skin care products and routine.

Rosacea is common. It’s also a skin problem that can come back over and over. You need to understand your complexion so that you can pick the best products to keep your complexion clear, healthy, and comfortable. I treat a lot of people with rosacea in my dermatology practice, and I also have it myself.

Here you will find the hypoallergenic products I use to treat my rosacea patients in my dermatology practice.

I also use these products on my own rosacea-prone complexion. Believe me, my patients and I have put these products to the test!

Why it is best to use only hypoallergenic products on your rosacea-prone skin?

It is important to know that rosacea makes skin sensitive. This means that you need to use only skin care products that don’t irritate your sensitive, rosacea prone skin. You also want to avoid products that are made with potent skin allergens. Many skin care product ingredients will penetrate readily into your rosacea-prone skin, and allergen exposure can create troublesome, lifelong allergic skin reactions. It is important to use only hypoallergenic products on your face when you have rosacea. Sun exposure can trigger rosacea so you also need to wear a good broad spectrum, hypoallergenic sunscreen on your face daily. 

Dermatologist's Top Tips for Treating Rosacea

Get the best results use nonirritating skin care products to create a layered Dr. Bailey Complete Skin Care Routine for the 4 essential steps of

  1. Cleanse
  2. Correct
  3. Hydrate
  4. Protect. 

Skin care routine tips:

  • My Redness Relief Kit is the foundation of the most successful rosacea skin care routines. This includes two products: Calming Zinc Soap (with 2% pyrithione zinc) and my Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream (with green tea/caffeine/hyaluronic acid).
  • Use the Calming Zinc Soap once a day for skin cleansing. Apply Green Tea Skin Therapy twice a day under your moisturizer.
  • Alternate another non-irritating skin cleanser with Calming Zinc Soap such as my Extremely Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser or my Daily Foaming Facial Cleanser (which makes the perfect foam for a man to wet shave his face), VaniCream Cleansing Bar Soap or my Naturally Best Bar Soap. One cleanser can be used in the AM and the other in the PM.
  • I have my patients apply their medicated prescription products after their Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy. Check with your prescribing doctor to see if this is right for you.
  • It is important to use a good moisturizing face cream to heal sensitive rosacea-prone skin and prevent flare-ups. My Daily Moisturizing Face Creams and Natural Face and Body Lotion and Natural Body Butter Cream are ideal hypoallergenic options. See below to pick the product based on your skin type and product preferences. 
  • Mineral sunscreens are the best sun protection for rosacea and are especially important because the sun can be a trigger to rosacea.
  • Makeup, if used, is applied on top of your complete skin care routine products. Simple mineral makeup powders are best for rosacea.
  • Stubborn or severe rosacea should be treated by a dermatologist as rosacea can leave lasting and unwanted changes on facial skin.

The right skin care really helps control rosacea!

I’ve tried just about every product, Rx and OTC, on the market and seen numerous dermatologists (spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in the process) to get some relief for my ultra-sensitive, rosacea-plagued face, and nothing has really helped…until now. Dr. Bailey’s Zinc Soap and Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy, followed by zinc oxide sunscreen has made a HUGE difference–and in only about a month. My itching and flaking are gone, the redness is almost gone, and I break out much less frequently. It’s like a miracle. I feel so fortunate to have come across her website and wonderful products, and I recommend them highly!" - Barbara, 7/16/14 

Dermatologist Dr. Cynthia Bailey’s Complete Skin Care Steps to Heal Rosacea

Step 1: CLEANSE

Use only cool/warm/tepid water and your fingertips or a gentle cloth. Avoid hot water. Use Calming Zinc ™ Soap alternating this with a gentle cleanser, such Daily Foaming Facial Cleanser , Extremely Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser,  or one of the other cleansers that I mentioned above.

One caveat is that Foaming Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cleanser is helpful for oily complexions with papulopustular rosacea. It is not tolerated by rosacea complexions that have sensitive skin. It is alternated with Calming Zinc Soap in place of a gentle cleanser.

Step 2: CORRECT

Apply a single pump of Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy to your entire face after washing and toweling dry. If you have extremely dry or dehydrated skin consider using my Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum first then applying the Green Tea on top. Layer any additional products or medicines on top if directed by your treating doctor. People with papulopustular rosacea sometimes benefit from 2.5% Benzyol Peroxide Cream where needed. Sensitive skin rosacea patients (with erythematotelangiectatic type rosacea) typically won’t tolerate benzoyl peroxide.

Step 3: HYDRATE

Layer your moisturizer on top of the Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy – be sure to allow a minute or so for the Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy to dry and absorb into your skin. Chose the right moisturizer based on your skin type:

Dry to normal skin:

Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Dry to Normal Skin (state-of-the-art hydration with a rich texture) 

Natural Lotion (all natural hydration with a light texture)

Natural Butter (all natural hydration with a richer texture)

Normal to oily skin:

Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Oily to Normal Skin (state-of-the-art hydration with a light texture)

Step 4. PROTECT

During the day sunscreen must be applied, because rosacea is often activated by sun exposure. Plus, sun protection is essential to prevent skin aging and protect against skin cancer. Mineral zinc oxide is the best choice sunscreen for rosacea because it provides excellent protection and is non-irritating to sensitive skin. Apply your sunscreen on top of your moisturizer (choose your product based on your skin type.) 

I do the work building a Complete Skin Care Routine for you with my Rosacea Skin Care Kit. These are products that work well for my rosacea patients. 

If you wear makeup, it is applied on top of your sunscreen. Consider using a pure mineral makeup powder. This is the best choice as it’s hypoallergenic and well tolerated by sensitive skin.
