The sun’s rays are one of the most common triggers for rosacea.

Use sunscreens regularly to limit flare-ups and help protect the skin from the sun’s rays. Avoiding the sun during peak hours, and wearing hats and sun protective clothing will also help.

• SPF 30 or higher with broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection
• Non-oily, fragrance-free, alcohol-free and labelled for sensitive skin.

Non-chemical, mineral sunscreens containing micronized zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are less irritating to the skin. These sunscreens work by reflecting sunlight and are not absorbed into the skin.

*Before applying any new products to your face, rub a small amount on your inner forearm, neck or just in front of the ears and check for a reaction up to a day later.

Have a wonderful, sun-safe summer!
