I have "pre-rosacea" symptoms (my father has horrible rosacea), and birth control, for whatever reason, really seems to help with mine (takes about six months for that effect to kick in), but I still flush occasionally/have a sunburned-looking streak across my cheeks/bridge of my nose + ears/neck/chest area.
Other things that have helped: switching to fragrance-free EVERYTHING (detergent, shave gel, soap/body wash/shampoo/conditioner), not using any petrolatum-based moisturizers as they tend to make me flush.
