Do product fragrances make a difference with rosacea skin care?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
The best products for skin with rosacea are those that are fragrance free. Fragrances are common irritants, and people with rosacea and other conditions that make skin more sensitive are at greater risk of reacting to fragrances. In surveys, the National Rosacea Society has found that 30% of people say fragrance is a trigger for irritation in their skin. Look for fragrance-free makeup, moisturizers, sunscreens, and cleansers. Apply them to a small area of your neck first, to see if you have a reaction, before using them on your face.
