Rosacea is one of the most complicated skin problems that causes redness and inflammation of the skin. It usually appears on the nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin. People suffering from rosacea will usually experience occasional or cyclical flare-ups. If left unattended, this inflammation can become a permanent cause of concern. Over time, the tiny blood vessels will start showing up on the affected parts of the skin, the nose will become swollen and red, and your overall face will become bumpy. In some worst cases of rosacea, the nose becomes large and bumpy, which alters the normal appearance of a person. If your skin
condition seems to be rosacea, don’t delay your trip to the doctor for proper diagnosis. There are some homeopathic remedies that may help you with the condition.
Hemp or Jojoba Oil and Zinc
Many naturopathic and homeopathic practitioners prescribe zinc or zinc oxide to people suffering from rosacea. This ingredient may be used in the form of supplements or creams for treating some instances of rosacea. Zinc is very effective in treating various skin conditions, including rosacea and acne. Because zinc has anti-inflammatory properties, it can reduce the development of zits and pustules, which is very common in rosacea sufferers.
Hemp oil or jojoba oil can be directly applied to damp face and massaged. Gentle massage will improve blood flow and soothe your skin.
Aloe Vera for Rosacea
Aloe vera is classified as a natural as well as homeopathic remedy. It has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that make aloe a useful treatment for scars and burns. The gel derived from aloe vera leaves can be applied to the affected parts of the skin. You can also use bottled gel of aloe vera, but make sure the ingredients used for this preparation are natural. Preferably, you should buy pure aloe vera gel with no other added artificial substances.
An alternative homeopathic remedy for rosacea skin is green tea. Green tea can be consumed, or you can even buy green tea creams. Choose natural creams to soothe your irritated skin. Green tea based creams can reduce symptoms of rosacea like visible blood vessels, pustules, and redness. Rosacea sufferers who have used this skin cream have experienced remarkable improvement in their skin condition.
Rosewater is another excellent remedy for rosacea skin; it has mild astringent properties that help in healing rosacea. Rosewater can be purchased from an herbal or health food store. Again, you must ensure that you purchase only rosewater with no additional ingredients that could irritate your skin.
Take adequate protection against heat – wear sunscreen for rosacea skin and a hat to cover your face. Drink water and spray cold water on your face to prevent irritation.
