    Patients with rosacea should use light bland moisturizers that are fragrance free. Bland moisturizers are those that do not contain additional ingredients like hydroxy acids or retinols. Bland moisturizers can be applied to the skin daily but avoid excessive rubbing or massaging of the face since can exacerbate rosacea. I also suggest you choose a moisturizer with SPF 30 for daily use

    Moisturizing is especially important for people with rosacea. Rosacea damages the skin's ability to retain its own natural moisture, so applying moisturizers can help restore its balance.
