These Dermatologist-Approved Foundations Won't Aggravate Your Rosacea

Rosacea is difficult to diagnose, as we all get a little flushed sometimes. Whether from irritation, overheating or a booze-filled night, redness is totally common. "Rosacea is triggered by episodes of blushing and flushing caused from overcirculation of the blood," celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau says. "It presents as sensitive, red skin that shows telangiectasia (small visible blood vessels) near the skin's surface, which can become pustular, often causing it to be mistaken for adult acne."

There are triggers that exacerbate the problem (like spicy foods and overexfoliation) and helpful solutions (like calming, cooling products with anti-inflammatory benefits). While treating the skin is the most important step, there are formulas that can work to soothe your skin while also neutralising and covering the redness. To score the best ones, we chatted with a few dermatologists and makeup artists who've seen, treated and covered it all.
