Preventing Rosacea

Genetics Play a Role

For those who have a genetic predisposition to rosacea, there is no way to remove the genes making you more susceptible to the condition. However, the easiest and most effective way to prevent the onset of rosacea's common symptoms is to wear sunscreen everyday, 365 days a year.

Sun Avoidance is Imperative

As people with rosacea acquire facial veins very easily from the sun, preventing sun exposure is crucial. Also, 71% of UVA light comes through car windows, so clear UVA & UVB blocking film can be installed on car windows to prevent exposure while driving.
