Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Mirvaso(brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33% is an alpha adrenergic agonist indicated for the topical treatment of persistent facial erythema(redness) of rosacea in adults 18 years of age or older.

You can apply it in evening time .
You can use Sunscreen during day time .
Also you can apply moisturizer at night time before going to bed.
Keep 1 hour difference in topical applications.
Apply only pea size of amount over the affected area.

Hope this helps.
