If you have erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, moisturizer can be one of your greatest allies. It can help reduce the burning, itching, and stinging associated with rosacea, and it also can help keep irritants away from your skin.

Some facial moisturizers are designed specifically for people with rosacea. They are intended to calm skin and help prevent redness caused by rosacea. Look for a product whose label mentions rosacea by name, not just a moisturizer that claims to reduce skin redness.
