How To Deal With Rosacea Naturally
an inflammatory skin disorder that affects both men and women, but it’s 3 times
more common in women. According to statistic, approximately 16 million
Americans have some form of rosacea. In most cases the condition presents as redness (similar to rash)
spread over the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead, accompanied by bumps, similar
to acne outbreaks, usually located under the eyes. Since the disorder is poorly
understood and there is not enough information about what causes it, there are a
lot of people that do not even realize they have this unpleasant skin condition.
While it is true that rosacea is not curable, there are certain things you can
do to stop it from progressing and reduce the negative effects it has on your
skin and, most importantly, on your self-esteem. Let’s go through some natural
alternatives and some life style changes that will help you take control over
Go Fragrance & Alcohol Free
fragrances increase skin’s irritability and make it more sensitive, especially
after prolonged use. Alcohol dries the skin out and destroys its natural lipid
barrier. Since people with rosacea have very thin protective barrier, the last
thing they need is ingredients that will cause it to thin even more, worsening
their condition. Though essential oils are also fragrant substances, if used in low concentrations they are less likely to irritate your skin.
Get Your Skin Some Vitamin C
Vitamin C is
known to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels, making them less likely to
break. This is very important for people with rosacea because most of the
redness is actually damaged capillaries that show on the skin surface, making
it appear as if you are blushing. Here, I’d like to note that high
concentrations of vitamin C can irritate your skin, so choose your products
wisely. My recommendation is to start with creams that have 3% of vitamin C. Don’t
forget to give it some time – as you know, miracles do not happen overnight.
Great results require patience and persistence.

The Power Of The Rose
When it comes to
irritations and redness, nature has the best cure to offer – rose water. Famous
for its soothing, calming and hydrating properties, rose water can help immensely
to those that suffer from rosacea. Every time your skin becomes red or itchy,
spray some rose water directly over your face. Allow it a few minutes to work
its wonders. If needed tap-dry what hasn’t been absorbed. I keep my rose water

antioxidants that improve skin’s overall condition and prevent further
