It’s very normal for us to get red-faced whenever we practice physical exercise or
are feeling ashamed due to some embarrassing situation.
However, when this reddish color insists on remaining it maybe due to another factor.
These red areas are often mistaken for sunburns, and may be caused by a skin disease called
Rosacea usually manifests itself in the central area of your face, cheeks, nose, forehead
and chin and we still don’t know much about its causes.
If you find that your face is constantly red, there are some natural remedies you can try:
Oats Oats have both anti-inflammatory properties
and soothing compounds, making them ideal for relieving itching and reducing redness.
You can make an oat paste by mixing a few tablespoons of oatmeal with a little water
and applying it directly to the desired area.
Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes and then rinse it off.
Chamomile Chamomile is great for your skin because it
affects your skin in the same way that oats do.
You can use either diluted chamomile essential oil or chamomile tea and apply it directly
to your skin.
It is recommended that you repeat this process a few times throughout the day in order to
obtain the best results.
Aloe Vera This plant can both regenerate, heal, and
nourish your skin.
To use it, the best thing to do is slice an aloe vera leaf open and scoop the inside gel
Store the aloe gel in a sealed container, and use it on any red skin patches.
Honey Honey is a powerful moisturizer, and can be
very beneficial for those who suffer from rosacea.
Certain types of honey, such as kanuka and manuka are the best at treating this ailment.
You can apply the honey directly to the affected area and let it sit for a few minutes.
Licorice One study has shown that licorice is able
to reduce skin redness, one of the most common symptoms of rosacea.
Mix one tablespoon of licorice extract with one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of
aloe vera gel.
Apply this mixture to the your skin.
Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
Repeat this process twice a day.
There are some other factors that can aggravate the rosacea symptoms, such as excessive sun
exposure, and certain types of food (such as spicy foods.)
Some people also say that foods like chocolate worsen your rosacea, so try to pay attention
to how your body reacts to different foods.
