What kinds of make-up can I wear if I have cyclic rosacea?

Cyclic rosacea makes the skin on your face very sensitive. Even when you're not having a flare-up, it's important to treat your skin gently. Avoid make-up or cleansers with alcohol, salicylic acid, or ones with too much oil or heavy fragrance. Ask your doctor for product recommendations. When you do find a line of make-up that doesn't agitate your skin, you may want to try foundation and powders that are green or yellow in color. These colors naturally reduce the red tones in your skin.
