    40 Skincare Products That People Who Have Rosacea Swear By

    Take it from someone who has it, rosacea is the pits. Here are things reviewers say help.

    1. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment goes on cooling and smooth, is easy to blend in, and will make you look in the mirror five minutes later wondering where all that redness went! I use it daily as a moisturizer under my foundation and some reviewers even use it as a CC cream. It's *that* good. And it has SPF 30!

    2. And Dr. Jart Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream is also worth calling out thanks to its equally cooling effect on your irritated skin. Heck, even if you're not going through a rosacea flare-up, the Centella Rx will still feel incredibly soothing. (This is also a personal fave.)

    3. Glow Recipe Redness Relief Serum is formulated with ceramides to help reduce redness and irritation, while antioxidant-rich avocado works to deeply nourish your skin.

    4. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is a GOAT for many but rosacea sufferers will especially find its magic-like covering prowess helpful for when you're aiming for a full-coverage lewk.

    5. Bio-Oil is better known for its ability to lighten scars, pregnancy stretch marks, and other spots. But! Lots of reviewers say it does wonders for dry, super-sensitive rosacea breakouts.

    6. InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum offers up some seriously soothing and moisturizing abilities on the reg with its hyaluronic acid, but especially when you suffer a flare-up. Get behind me, Satan!

    7. The Ordinary Niacinamide helps regulate sebum and minimize pores thanks to its potent vitamin and mineral formula. Reviewers say it helps reduce redness and lets the *glow* shine through.

    8. Glossier Solution has chemical exfoliants perfect for babes with super sensitive skin (which, tbh, I think most rosacea sufferers have!) to help lighten scarring, improve general skin tone, and slough off dead skin you no longer need. Say buh-bye to those physical exfoliants that leave you redder and more irritated.

    9. Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner is made to target clogged pores and blackheads *but* reviewers who came for that have also found that it helps treat their rosacea!

    10. Mario Badescu Azulene Calming Mask contains soothing azulene, chamomile extract, and balsam peru, making it a solid (anti-inflammatory) option for any babes who've found that their sensitive skin doesn't exactly gel with most masks on the market.

    Promising review: "I have tried almost every brand of primer, this one by far works the best. I have red undertones and this covers it without being 'cakey'. In the summertime I use this primer and some loose powder instead of foundation. This is so light and airy it does not clog my pores. This is a must in your makeup routine." —Heatmay

Been using it for about a year now, it goes on every day and gets all the redness off my face, when I’m in a hurry I just top it off with a little powder and I’m done but it’s a perfect base layer for any makeup routine if you had a lot of redness like I do." –Andrea

    Promising review: "This product is really amazing! I have large pores and rosacea with the occasional small blemish. This stuff shrunk my pores, helps my rosacea and minimizes the amount of breakouts I get. I also have pretty dry knees after having my second child and this also helps with that. I’ve tried everything on my knees and it’s usually a temporary fix but this seems to be getting through the driest part and minimizing that as well. Highly recommend!" –andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $14.59.
