Natural Cure for Rosacea

Natural Cure for Rosacea

 

It might look like acne, but rosacea is a different condition altogether – one that usually strikes adults over 30, often those with fair skin. Symptoms include flushed, pimply thickened facial skin, watery eyes, and visible blood vessels, and they typically get worse without treatment.

Although we don't know what causes rosacea, there's some evidence that food sensitivities, inflammatory disorders, and H. pylori (the bacterium that causes ulcers) may play a role. Anything that causes your face to flush – including menopausal hot flashes and humid weather – can also set off a flare.

There's no cure, but you and your doctor can do plenty to minimize symptoms and keep them from recurring.

1. Soak a washcloth in cool water to which you've added 5 drops rose, lavender, and chamomile oils. Place over your face for 10 minutes several times a day.

2. As you rest with the washcloth over your face, breathe deeply and slowly, filling your abdomen with each breath, and exhaling through your mouth.

3. Fish Oils – Because rosacea is an inflammatory condition, fish oil supplements – which fight inflammation throughout the body – may help. Take 1500 milligrams twice a day. Fish oil has multiple benefits – it will also help protect you against heart disease, for instance.
