How to reduce Rosacea:
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It can be mistaken for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems. It can occur to anyone and at any age but most commonly affects middle-aged women who have fair skin. Rosacea causes redness in the face, swelling and painful skin, stinging and burning in the skin, rough, itchy or scaling skin and acne-like breakouts and overly oily skin.
There is no cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.
Make changes in your diet to avoid all allergies. Eat organic vegetables and fruits as they contain anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidants to lower oxidative stress and sun damage, and vitamins and minerals that help rebuild healthy skin cells. Leafy green vegetables and orange/yellow fruits and vegetables are especially beneficial since they provide carotenoids that fight damage from sun exposure. Also eat fats like coconut oil, olive oil, nuts and seeds etc. Ginger, garlic, onions, turmeric also help to combat skin inflammation. Do not take alcohol and caffeinated drinks. Also avoid sugar, dairy products and processed food.
Prescription medicines & antibiotics
Use prescription medicines and antibiotics.
Always wear sunscreen, which helps prevent irritation from UV light, redness and flare-ups. UV light seems to aggravate rosacea symptoms and can cause inflammation. While getting exposure to the sun is important for vitamin D production within your skin, it’s best to keep your face well-protected. Choose the sunscreen carefully suiting your skin.
Use natural moisturisers and cosmetic products. Naturally antibacterial skin moisturiser like coconut oil can provide essential acids to the skin without causing breakouts or irritations. Buy organic makeup products as they limit the amount of harsh chemicals you put on your sensitive skin.
Stress is known to be a common trigger of rosacea that can bring on flare-ups. You should be confident about your looks and not feel guilty. Try to focus on feeling empowered instead of embarrassed. Use stress-reducing techniques like exercise and meditation to soothe yourself.
Essential oils can help fight inflammation. Herbal remedies offer a safe and effective way to cure different kinds of skin diseases. Herbs can also be effective for fighting bacterial growth, yeast, fungus, signs of ageing, wrinkles, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. Best herbs and essential oils suitable to all skin types are aloe Vera, turmeric, ginger, raw honey, lavender oil, tea tree oil, eucalyptus, rose etc.
You should talk to your dermatologist before using any kind of mediation. Use products that are cheap, safe and good for the skin.
