Your step-by-step guide to The Ordinary Rosacea Regimen

  • Always start with cleansed skin using The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser.
  • This needs to be rubbed between the palms of your hands until the consistency changes to a balm.
  • Once cleansed, you can add 2/3 drops of Hyaluronic Acid to your face.
  • Start with 2 or 3 drops and add more if you feel you need.
  • Pat or massage in until it is absorbed.
  • Once absorbed, you can apply your Natural Moisturizing Factors followed by SPF.
  • For your evening routine, start with cleansed skin again.
  • In this routine, it was recommended to just add Azelaic Acid for your evening routine.
  • If you feel this is too strong, add Hyaluronic Acid beforehand. You can also use a moisturizer afterward if you wish.

Apart from the products mentioned above, NIOD Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist (SDSM2) and NIOD Modulating Glucosides are also recommended by The Ordinary to help with inflammation and redness.

The Ordinary & Deciem Products for Rosacea

A beginner’s guide to The Ordinary skincare for rosacea-prone skin- which products to avoid and which can help soothe redness.

What is Rosacea? 

Rosacea is a medical condition that can affect facial skin. Its exact cause is unknown, but it’s probably genetic. Skin mites and bacteria might also be a trigger. Rosacea tends to be more common in women over 30 and those with a fair complexion, although anyone can have Rosacea.

What causes Rosacea?

Whilst Rosacea is thought to be hereditary, it can also be triggered by stress, hot and cold temperatures, food and drinks including alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, sugar, dairy and many more factors. This is why it´s best to talk to a doctor. It could be just one thing that you´re eating or drinking that´s setting off your redness. It´s worth keeping a food and drink diary to see if you spot any patterns, also noting stress levels.

How do I know if I have Rosacea?

If you think you might have Rosacea, it’s best to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. There is no specific test for Rosacea, but a doctor will eliminate other causes to come to a diagnosis. 

How does Rosacea look and feel?

There are a few different signs which could mean you have Rosacea;

  • The most common symptoms are redness and thickening of the skin
  • You could also have visible blood vessels, acne-like spots or bumps
  • Flushing (redness of the cheeks) with certain triggers like heat, alcohol and exercise
  • Sensations of itchiness, burning and stinging
  • Dryness of the skin
  • Also, bumpiness of the nose and dry eyes could be signs of Rosacea
  • The symptoms vary from person to person, so it is best to see a medical professional for confirmation.

Which products/ingredients should I avoid with Rosacea?

Try and avoid anything that might trigger inflammation. Here are the main skincare don’ts for rosacea sufferers

  • Avoid overzealous cleansing- scrubs and foaming cleansers that make skin feel tight.
  • Hot water when washing the face is definitely a no-no
  • Skincare that contains alcohol and/or fragrance and dry and irritates the skin. 
  • Strong acids can irritate; best to avoid glycolic acid
  • Sun protection is essential. It´s best to stick to mineral/physical protection; chemical sunscreens can be irritating.

Rosacea – Which Ordinary products should I use for Rosacea? 

If you suffer from Rosacea, the skincare focus should reduce redness, calm inflammation, and build the moisture barrier. Here are the ideal The Ordinary products for rosacea-prone skin.

The Best The Ordinary Products For Redness / Rosacea

  • The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 30. Sun protection is very important, particularly in the case of Rosacea. This is because UV is a trigger. Mineral sunscreen is less irritating than chemical SPF.
  • Squalane Cleanser. This is a really bland non-irritating cleanser, perfect for rosacea skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5– Hydration is important for healthy skin, and the added vitamin B5 (panthenol) is soothing and nourishing.
  • Mandelic Acid 10%. Strong acids, like The Ordinary Glycolic Toner and the red AHA peel, should be avoided. Mandelic Acid is gentler; therefore, it is a good option for sensitive rosacea-prone skin.

While you can’t cure Rosacea with any product you can buy, you can definitely help the situation by giving your skin what it needs – soothing and nourishing ingredients. If you suspect you have Rosacea, your best option is to see a doctor for a diagnosis and prescription medication like antibiotics. 

The Ordinary skincare range is an excellent choice if you have Rosacea. It’s fragrance—and alcohol-free, and it contains plenty of simple skin-supportive products.

What other The Ordinary or NIOD products would be good for Rosacea?

In our live Q&A in the Facebook Group, this is what The Ordinary had to say about Rosacea.

As none of our products can be considered medical treatments for Rosacea, you may wish to discuss suitable treatments for persistent signs of Rosacea with your physician or dermatologist. However, you may wish to explore one of the following products to target signs of inflammation: NIOD Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist (SDSM2) or NIOD Modulating Glucosides.
