5 try at home remedies for Rosacea

By

Anyone that has had rosacea will understand how frustrating a condition it is. Often mistaken for acne, it can bring redness, irritation & small pustular pimples to the predominantly the cheeks, nose, chin & forehead & can be very difficult to treat. There are natural remedies that many people have found success with, so please read on!

There are actually multiple subtypes of rosacea, so before you try ANY treatment, natural or medicinal, it is best to consult your GP to understand your subtype & what you can try with your skin.

 

 

1. Keep a Clean Diet

 

For rosacea sufferers, particularly those that suffer from acne / pustular forms of rosacea, diet is very important. There have been many studies linking gut health with inflammatory conditions, so being careful with what you eat may help your rosacea.

Experts recommend eating clean proteins, good fats, high-fiber foods, veggies, tumeric, and ginger to assist with internal inflammation. They also recommend avoiding excess coffee, spicy foods, alcohol, dairy & histamine related foods.

 

 

2. Up your Antioxidants

 

We heal from the inside out. So upping your daily intake of antioxidants may help heal skin conditions like rosacea.

A newly emerging recommendation to help with this is drinking Aloe Vera Water which is jam-packed with antioxidants & vitamins that help to hydrate your intestines and eliminate toxins within the body. You can buy AV water from the shops or make your own (check out this link for our recipe!)

 

 

3. Avoid Irritants

 

If you suffer from any type of rosacea, ALWAYS check the ingredient list on your skincare products for anything that could potentially inflame your rosacea (as even some natural / organic ingredients may upset it).

Keep an eye out for ingredients like: Retinoids, Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Witch Hazel, Hydroquinone, Peppermint Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Menthol, Eucalyptus Oil, most harsh soaps & fragrances.

 

 

4. Soothe, Soothe, Soothe

 

When choosing products, look for ingredients i that will soothe & hydrate your skin.  

Some great common ingredients are things like Colloidal Oats, Prickly Pear Oil, Lavender, Chamomile, Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid, Cucumber, Azelaic Acid & Green Tea Extract.

 

 

5. Make a Soothing Mask

 

With the availability of natural ingredients easier than ever, it's not hard to make a soothing mask at home in a jiffy.

 

Try the following masks:

 

  • Aloe Vera which works wonders for redness (and is as easy as carefully removing the gel from the lead & applying it your face).
  • Green Tea Compress (allow a cup to cool in the fridge before dipping in a clean face towel).
  • Colloidal Oatmeal Mask (simply add water, apply it your face for 10min and wash off)
