Homemade Rosacea “Cure”
Basic Care Routine
Do not use clay masks for cleansing. Instead, try a homemade mask with an olive oil base mixed with calming, chamomile tea and a little oatmeal, which has anti-inflammatory properties. After washing your face, always pat it dry with a soft towel. Wash three or more times daily, depending on how oily your skin is.
Some cases of rosacea have shown improvement from washing with pine tar soap. Some recommend smoothing on a lather, letting it dry, then leaving it on throughout the night. Wash it off in the morning and follow through by applying a bag balm to your face and leaving it on for about 10 minutes.
Try mixing mineral water with apple cider vinegar for a homemade facial toner. Spray this onto the face directly and pat it dry.
Nutrition to Help
Drink fenugreek tea. This has been known to be especially helpful with skin disorders, most especially acne. If you cannot find the tea, buy fenugreek and steep it in boiling water to make your own tea.
Avoid chocolate, alcohol, and fatty, fried foods and spicy foods. Tomatoes, too, can trigger rosacea flare-ups and should be avoided. Now not all of these cause flairs for all people. Alcohol and tomato sauce will do it for me. You may be different. Pay attention to the foods that irritate you and reduce the intake.
Lavender Skin Treatment
Things You'll Need:
- 3 drops pure lavender essential oil
- 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
- Cotton balls
Cleanse and rinse your face. Gently pat your face dry with a towel. Be sure not to irritate our skin.
Apply a bit of the mixture to a small area on your face to determine whether you are allergic. Lavender contains geraniol, which may be an irritant for rosacea in some people. If you experience any redness at the test spot, don't use the mixture.
Dip your cotton ball into the lavender oil blend. Massage it gently into your skin. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nostrils and lips. Repeat until you have applied it to your entire face. Pat off any excess oil and let the rest to soak in.
Make these steps a part of your daily facial routine.
