Taking Control of Rosacea: Your Action Plan
In addition to using the Manuka Biotic range, here are some essential steps you can take to manage rosacea effectively:
1. Avoid Triggers
Identify what triggers your rosacea flare-ups. Common triggers include spicy foods, alcohol, extreme temperatures, and stress. By avoiding these triggers, you can reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks.
2. Gentle, Natural Skincare
Stick to a skincare routine that includes mild, non-abrasive and pH balanced face cleansers and moisturisers. Harsh products can exacerbate rosacea symptoms.
3. Sun Protection
Shield your face from the sun's harmful rays by wearing hats and applying sunscreen. Sun exposure can worsen rosacea symptoms.
4. Stay Hydrated
Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
5. Stress Management
Practice stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga to minimise the emotional and physical impact of stress on your skin.
