Skin that is prone to the symptoms of rosacea needs protecting from harsh environmental conditions that can worsen flare-ups and leave the skin damaged and irritated. Moisturising is always important, as it can help to reduce redness and irritation as well as any discomfort.

Also important for rosacea-prone skin is the daily use of sunscreen. Many people find that exposure to the sun’s rays can trigger symptoms, as well as encouraging the appearance of thread veins and increasing any red patches.

Of course, rosacea treatment can effectively reduce redness and thread veins, but it cannot prevent the appearance of more and so prevention is certainly the best approach. Sunscreen can help to prevent these symptoms from worsening.

Our Derma Feed High Force Total Protection sunblock has been specially formulated to protect sensitive, fragile skin without causing further irritation. It filters both UVA and UVB rays which cause the skin to age and burn respectively.

Even though you may be tempted to save the sunscreen for the summer or for holidays to hot countries, it is important to use it daily. Frequent exposure to daylight can have a more gradual effect on the skin, but it will worsen symptoms in the long run.
