TRANQUILITY & RELAXATION FOR YOUR SKIN
THE DOCTOR Mi! ROSACEA EVENING ROUTINE FOR A RELAXING NIGHT
In addition to the right morning routine for rosacea, a suitable evening routine is also crucial for properly caring for your skin with rosacea. Here, too, it is important to consciously avoid possible triggers of rosacea flare-ups and to strengthen your skin from the inside.
ROSACEA EVENING ROUTINE: ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTHY SKIN
Evening routines are fundamentally important for the skin as it renews itself while you sleep. In order to support skin affected by rosacea in the best possible way, you can use targeted active ingredients and doses that help you keep your skin in balance and avoid unnecessary irritation. You should consider the following tips before you set out to implement your evening routine for rosacea.
DO NOT GO TO BED TOO LATE
To ensure that your skin can recover adequately, you should give it enough sleep and relaxation, especially if you have rosacea. Between 7 and 8 hours are ideal to give it enough time for regeneration.
BE AWARE OF TEMPERATURE
Don't use hot or cold water, in general. Rather, make sure that the water you use in your evening routine is warm. You actively avoid redness and swelling this way which arise as a result of too high or too low temperatures. You should also avoid abrupt temperature changes, for example, in the form of contrast showers, as well as hot baths or steam baths.
SAY NO TO OILS & ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCES
Artificial fragrances and greasy care products are unsuitable for rosacea. Therefore, you should absolutely avoid using them. Important: Keep this in mind when choosing your hair care products as the substances are easily transferred from your hair to your face.
AVOID INGREDIENTS THAT PROMOTE BLOOD FLOW
Menthol, rosemary, eucalyptus and more: substances that promote blood circulation can harm you if you have rosacea. Your skin is already very sensitive due to the inflamed skin cells and dilated blood vessels which manifests in redness and protruding veins. Ingredients that promote blood circulation only encourage this condition.
Tip: When choosing scented candles or room fragrances, make sure that they do not contain any of these ingredients. Very sensitive skin and skin affected by rosacea can also have a reaction to this.
USE TARGETED MASSAGE TECHNIQUES
If your skin is swollen, you can consciously and specifically use rosacea massage techniques to treat this swelling. This yields very good results in the long term.
USE pH NEUTRAL SKIN CARE
To make sure that your irritated skin does not experience any additional irritation, you should only use pH neutral skin care products. Ordinary soaps, for example, have a pH value that is too high, well above that of the skin. Applying it results in additional irritation of the reddened and swollen rosacea skin and, for example, removes additional moisture from dry areas of the face.
Good to know: DOCTOR Mi! medical skincare only manufactures pH neutral care products that are extremely skin-friendly, even for rosacea or couperose.
KEEP A CONSISTENT CARE ROUTINE
To have control over your flare-ups, you should take care of your skin regularly and remain disciplined. Otherwise, your complexion can quickly deteriorate again. It is important that you stick to your care routine to ensure your complete wellbeing.
THE DOCTOR Mi! ROSACEA EVENING ROUTINE: HOW TO DO IT CORRECTLY
The best way to start your evening routine for rosacea is with the DOCTOR Mi! ROSACEA SET. Below you will find out how to use the contained products correctly.
In the evening, distribute a small amount of the gentle but thorough cleansing gel CLEAN all over your face. Massage it into your skin for 2-3 minutes with damp hands and circular movements. With it you can clear your eye area from eye shadow, and etc., without an additional make-up remover. Use warm water to wash your face.
Spray TONE, the mild facial toner by Doctor Mi! medical skincare, 2–3 times on a cotton pad. Gently apply it to your face as well as your neck and décolletage. Avoid contact with your mouth and nose and also avoid the eye area. The high-dose AHA fruit acids reliably remove flaking skin from your skin surface.
Apply a small amount of NIGHT cream onto your face, neck and décolletage and massage it in until it is completely absorbed.
NIGHT ALTERNATIVE: RED
Instead of NIGHT, you can also start using RED 2–3 times a week, the DOCTOR Mi! skin booster for a particularly effective overnight skin treatment. If your skin takes to it, you can increase the application up to 5 times a week. However, it shouldn't be applied more than that
You can use both NIGHT and RED with our DERMA ROLLER to work the care deeper into your skin and maximize the skin-renewing effects of both creams. Thanks to its antibacterial coating and the optimal needle length, the DERMA ROLLER is ideal for using at home. Incidentally, it can also be used to treat scar tissue. Important: Start carefully and only apply slight pressure in the beginning. In addition, only use the DERMA ROLLER every two weeks if you have rosacea.
For acute flare-ups of rosacea, we recommend using MASK. Apply a hazelnut-sized amount evenly to your face and let the soothing skin mask soak in for at least 15 minutes. Then wash it off with warm water.

FURTHER RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR ROSACEA EVENING ROUTINE
The DOCTOR Mi! evening facial routine ensures that your skin is well looked after and ready for a restful night. The following tips will also help you avoid rosacea flare-ups in the evening.
LOW HISTAMINE DIET IN THE EVENING
Histamines are a special form of protein that are unsuitable for rosacea because they cause rosacea flare-ups. Unfortunately, there is a whole range of foods that into this category: from fruit and vegetables to milk and meat. By choosing foods that are low in histamine when choosing your dinner, you promote the wellbeing of your skin and do not risk any negative consequences in this regard.
Alcohol dilates the blood vessels which can be fatal in rosacea. Red wine, in particular, contains a high proportion of histamines and is therefore an extremely poor companion for your dinner. Better to avoid it so as not to cause skin redness.
REDUCE SUGAR & CARBOHYDRATES
Carbohydrates add sugar to the skin cells, just like ordinary industrial or fruit sugar. It is therefore important that you do not consume too many of them. Try to eat more meals that are high in protein and fats to help protect your skin.
Tip: Also pay attention to foods that are low in histamine.
Stress is unhealthy, also for the skin. With rosacea, it can even cause flare-ups, reddening of the skin and swelling. Therefore it is all the more important that you avoid sources of stress. By doing yin yoga, mindfulness exercises or finding other ways to relax, you are not only doing something good for yourself, but also for your skin.
