Most of us experience skin redness occasionally, while others are born with naturally flushed cheeks. Those suffering from rosacea (pronounced as roh-ZAY-sha) are aware that the persistent pink colour, known as “flushing,” is a symptom of rosacea. This is essentially a skin illness that causes hundreds of tiny blood vessels branch over your cheeks, to inflame and expand.
To be honest, it’s tricky to get your rosacea treatment just right. You may be aware of the best rosacea makeup techniques and effective topical treatments, but have you considered the link between your skin and store-bought skincare products? This is where natural remedies come into play. On your road to recovery, these remedies can work as a supplement to your existing skincare treatments. Let’s dive right in!
Rosacea is an inflamed skin disease characterised by reddish skin, which commonly appears on the cheeks and nose. It is thought to be a vascular condition caused by increased blood flow, but the exact causes are unknown.
This skin condition impacts those with a bright complexion in particular, and it becomes more common as they get older. In severe situations or if triggered, the redness can worsen over time and the possible signs can be acne-like blemishes, noticeable blood vessels, a warm sensation in the skin, facial swelling, and dry or red eyes. Genetics can also be one of the main reasons for this skin issue.
Nature provides kinder and more attractive ways to make your skin glisten and glow. Most importantly, they include less synthetic ingredients, preservatives, and chemicals that might trigger allergic reactions, and they’re also better for the environment. Let’s look at some of the home remedies made with natural ingredients to reduce rosacea.
You’ve probably heard the phrase before: “You are what you eat.” That’s why skin experts recommend including nutrient-rich foods in your diet (enter: good fats, high-fibre foods, vegetables, turmeric, and ginger). Because the stomach regulates inflammation in the body, introducing high-fibre, low-sugar, low-hydrogenated-oil diets decreases inflammation all throughout the body.
Topically applying Aloe Vera is nothing new, but consuming it? Drinking Aloe Vera water is similar to drinking water that has been supplemented with antioxidants and vitamins. It aids in the increase of water content in the intestines as well as the elimination of toxins from the body, reducing inflammation and rosacea.
Honey provides moisture to the skin since it is high in humectants. Because rosacea is known to be exacerbated by dry skin, providing moisture to the skin can help to keep symptoms at bay. Apply a small amount of honey on your face. Allow it to stay for 30 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
Oats have more advantages than just being a tasty breakfast option. Oatmeal has long been used as a home treatment for facial redness. Many skincare products, such as face masks, contain oatmeal. It reduces water loss and strengthens the skin, which helps to improve the appearance of rosacea.
Many essential oils contain anti-inflammatory qualities, making them useful in the treatment of rosacea and other inflammatory skin diseases. Tea tree, thyme, rose, jasmine, and lavender are some of the top essential oils. Combine a few drops of essential oil with a carrier oil, such as almond or coconut oil. Then, as part of your evening skin care routine, apply the treatment on your face. Allow the treatment to sit on your skin overnight.
