If you have rosacea, using products made for sensitive skin is a must. Many common ingredients in popular cleansers and cosmetics can irritate the skin, which can cause flare-ups and worsen rosacea. Read labels before you buy. Look for fragrance-free products and avoid any that contain alcohol, witch hazel, menthol, and other potential irritants. Ask your doctor if you're not sure which products to use.
