The best sunscreens for people with rosacea have an SPF of 30, are hypoallergenic, and are also oil-free and fragrance-free. In this video, dermatologist Jeanine Downie, MD, explains why these different factors are so important to rosacea sufferers.
Minimizing sun damage is important for all skin types, and especially crucial for those with rosacea. When choosing a sunscreen, opt for those that contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide complete sun protection and should minimize potential irritation to delicate or sensitive skin.
I recommend sunscreens containing micronized forms of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide for patients with rosacea. These chemical free sunscreens are less irritating for rosacea patients and block ultraviolet rays effectively.
