Keep Rosacea Under Control This Summer with These Tips

Summer is all about enjoying the great outdoors, warm weather, and sunshine. But for those who suffer from Rosacea, this season can also bring a host of challenges. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide, usually appearing as redness, small bumps, or swollen blood vessels on your face, neck, and chest. If you have Rosacea, the hot summer weather can worsen your symptoms, leading to flares and increased sensitivity. But, with a few management tips, you can take control of your symptoms and enjoy this summer season.

Wear sun protection every day.
Sun damage is perhaps the most significant trigger for Rosacea symptoms, making it essential to put on sunscreen daily, even if you don't plan to spend time in the sun. Use a broad-spectrum, fragrance-free sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, and reapply every few hours. You can also protect your skin with a hat, sunglasses, and seeking out shade when outside. A mineral based-sunscreen is the best, as it is not chemical based.  All sunscreens as MD Aesthetics are mineral-based sunscreens.

Stay cool and hydrated.
Hot temperatures, humidity, and sweat can trigger Rosacea flares, especially if you have the heat lingering on your skin for too long. Keep yourself cool as much as possible, either by staying in air-conditioned spaces or using fans. Also, drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

Simplify your skin care routine.
Hot and sticky summer weather can make your skin sensitive, so try to avoid using many types of products on your skin. You may also want to opt for a mild, fragrance-free cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen to avoid irritating your skin. If you have dry or more sensitive skin, use gentle, hydrating products that won’t dry out your skin or clog pores.  If you are unsure what products to use, book a FREE skin analysis and we can help guide you with your choices.

Take care with exercise.
Exercise can help manage Rosacea symptoms, but it can also make your skin more sensitive, especially when working up a sweat. Try to work out in air-conditioned spaces or during the cooler morning hours, which can help keep your skin from overheating too quickly. If you use exercise equipment, make sure to wipe down machines before and after use to avoid bacteria build-up.

Manage stress.
Stress is another common trigger for Rosacea flares and can be challenging to avoid entirely. However, you can manage your stress levels with simple techniques, like deep breathing or meditating. You may also want to try yoga or other types of gentle exercise that help calm your mind and body.

Managing Rosacea during the summer requires a little extra attention to your skin's needs. Apply sunscreen daily, stay cool, simplify your skincare routine, take care with exercise, and manage your stress levels can all help keep Rosacea under control. Remember, everyone's Rosacea is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another, so it's best to work with your doctor or clinic like Copeland MD Aesthetics to create the best treatment plan for your individual needs. By using these tips, you can minimize your Rosacea flares this summer and enjoy everything the season has to offer.
