Will makeup make my rosacea worse? Makeup may be used to help cover up ruddy cheeks, but it can also worsen rosacea symptoms, says Taub. “Choose fragrance-free, mineral-based makeup,” she suggests. “This tends to be much less irritating to the skin than other types of makeup.” The formula of any makeup for rosacea counts too.
How do I apply makeup with rosacea?
What products to avoid with rosacea?
- glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid.
- benzoyl peroxide.
- physical exfoliants (like salt and sugar grains or jojoba beads)
- sodium lauryl sulfate.
- witch hazel.
Why does makeup help rosacea? Green-tinted makeup can be a good counterbalance to the redness caused by rosacea. This is due to green and red being complementary colors on the color wheel. Applying a green-tinted primer before applying foundation will help disguise any flare-ups or flushing.
