Add some colour

You don’t have to skip blusher altogether – just avoid anything hot pink or too reddy toned and opt for bronze- based shades like B. Blusher in Darl, £7.99, instead.

Go green

Green concealer neutralises redness. Apply it before your foundation and blend it well to avoid looking as though you’re having a sea-sickness twinge. Revolution Conceal and Correct Green, £4, is super long-lasting, so will stay put during a flare-up.

Cover all

High-coverage foundation that doesn’t feel mask-like can be hard to find. Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation, £19.99, hides serious redness and minimises the bumps that come with some types of rosacea, while still looking natural.

Cool down

Out and about and feel a flush coming on? Spritz with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water Face & Body Spray, £6.99, to take the heat out of your skin instantly and leave it feeling calmer.
