We may receive commissions from links on this page, but we only recommend products we love and deem 'redhead friendly'. Full Disclosure.

As redheads, we should let our skin shine and never cover it up with too much makeup. If you’re struggling with rosacea, get it under control by taking control. Redheads can control it by watching their ‘triggers’ such as things like spicy foods, red wine and hot baths.

Talk to your dermatologist about creating a skin care regimen that’s right for you. In the meantime, here are some tips to put you on the right track:

1. Avoid these redness triggers. 

-Cosmetics, creams and cleansers with added fragrances. If you see our ‘Redhead Friendly’ logo, you can be guaranteed it has no added fragrances. 

-Products with alcohol,witch hazel, menthol, peppermint or eucalyptus oil.

-Harsh scrubs, toners and astringents.

-The sun can really flare up a redhead’s skin. Make sure to always wear plenty of sunscreen to stay protected.

2. Use gentle skincare products on a daily basis. Most patients with rosacea have very sensitive skin and need skin care products and cosmetics without alcohol or fragrances. And, stay away from harsh cleansers like exfoliators or scrubs that can irritate your skin and make redness flare up.

3. Treat it with Mirvaso® (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%*. It is the first and only FDA-approved treatment specifically developed and indicated for the persistent facial redness of rosacea. Galderma, the makers of Mirvaso are running an incredibly powerful campaign called, “Break Up With Your Makeup“. Stop applying loads of makeup and let Mirvaso help you get red carpet ready.
