Common rosacea triggers -- part 4: The skin care routine you use can also negatively affect rosacea. If any of the products you use cause redness or stinging (products containing alcohol, witch hazel or fragrance can often cause these issues) you should cut them out of your routine. In addition, Waldorf recommends "avoiding toners, astringents, scrubs, retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids and anything else potentially irritating if not under the supervision of a dermatologist." She also adds that people with rosacea have "'reactive' skin that is particularly sensitive to irritants," and that using products designed for sensitive skin can be helpful.
