14 Best Dermatologist-Approved Skincare Products For Rosacea

Excessive sun exposure can be a major trigger for a rosacea flare-up, according to Health line. This makes wearing sunscreen even more critical for people with rosacea. Sticking to gentle mineral formulas and avoiding potentially irritating chemical sunscreens is key to protecting your skin from UV damage, and it ensures you won’t have to worry about a reaction to the product.

Dermatologist Andrea Suarez aka Dr Dray on Youtube, recommends Hero Cosmetics Superlight Force Shield Sunscreen as a zinc oxide formula that reduces the appearance of redness. Board-certified dermatologist Maryann Mikhail spoke with hero cosmetics on the importance of using gentle skincare products if you have rosacea, including using an SPF like the brand’s Superlight sunscreen.

The mineral sunscreen contains ectoin, an extremolyte of marine origin that retains moisture, reduces redness and protects the skin from radiation (according to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology). Another ingredient derived from seawater, Aeromonas ferment extract, is also in sunscreen and works to relieve and repair the skin barrier. The formula also contains several soothing botanicals and has a color-correcting green tint to correct redness without leaving significant white streaks. One of the herbs is the adaptogenic tulsi, or holy basil (via Health Line). Tulsi has antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties – a triple threat that can help alleviate rosacea symptoms.

Here comes the sun, and all is well. To buy Hero Cosmetics Force Shield Superlight Sun Cream from Amazon for $19.99.
