Sun cream for rosacea

Postby cadgeandminky on Tue Oct 03, 2017 5:51 pm

Can someone recommend a broad spectrum SPF sun cream for a sufferer of rosacea. I've heard mineral creams are the best.
Thanks

Hello!

Whilst we can't recommend a specific brand, remember that protection is needed against both UVA and UVB light. Often mineral sunscreens are better than chemical sunscreens in this scenario as they cause less skin sensitivity so look for products containing titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Your GP or dermatologist should be able to advise.
