The product ingredients most likely to irritate skin with rosacea include alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint, and eucalyptus oil, according to surveys by the National Rosacea Society. Astringents and scrubbing agents may also worsen rosacea symptoms and are usually best to avoid. Even herbal or “natural” ingredients can sometimes irritate skin with rosacea.
