So what is the best rosacea treatment? There are literally hundreds of theories about what works best for the treatment of rosacea, but the truth is each rosacea remedy works more or less effectively depending on the person. What works incredibly well for you might not even help others!
The basic attack plan of avoiding certain foods, avoiding caffeine, avoiding intense heat and cold, all seem to have an effect for all rosacea sufferers. But other specialized approaches (which are often the most effective) only work really well for some people.
So you have to simply try a few of them until you find something that works for you!
There are many pharmaceutical products for the treatment of rosacea, but this article is going to look at some of the natural and organic approaches that have worked well for some people with rosacea.
The first one is Cucumber. This vegetable actually has fantastic healing properties which have been known by herbalists for many thousands of years, but in the 21st century many people don’t even know how effective it can be.
Apart from the obvious way of using cucumbers (eating them!), you can create face creams from cucumbers or simply use cucumber slices.
Cucumber is actually packed full of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins C, Vitamin E (great for skin) and minerals potassium, magnesium and silica. You might have heard of people using slices on swollen ad puffy eyes, and that is the reason.
The easiest way to use cucumber to treat rosacea is to use it like most women do – place slices on your eyes. It’s great for relieving the inflammation and irritation from ocular rosacea.
You can make a face cream by blending half a cucumber with 5 table spoons of natural yoghurt. Blend them together and either and use them on your face for 15 minutes then wash off.
You can also blend cucmber with mud to make a mud mask! Blend a cucumber, mud, cream, honey and olive oil to make the mud pack. Leave it on for 10 minutes then wash off. This is a really natural way to remedy your rosacea.
Green tea is another natural solution that many people have claimed is effective. People regularly drink it because of the anti-oxidants and other health benefits, but it’s great for rosacea as well. Green tea is actually an anti-inflammatory, so it helps a great deal with rosacea.
No need to pull out the blender for this one, simply drink 2-3 cups of green tea per day and you will probably see a reduction in the inflammation from your rosacea.
Oatmeal is the final natural rosacea remedy and according to many, the most effective. You can buy moisturizer with oatmeal in it from most shops and it has great effect on rosacea as an anti-itching cream. When rosacea becomes inflamed and itches, sufferers find it hard to resist scratching their face. Scratching of course irritates the rosacea further and leads to more problems. Using a quality organic oatmeal moisturizer can help with this.
Oatmeal also contains minerals and proteins which help nourish and heal rosacea affected skin. It’s a great protective barrier from the sun and harsh weather, so it has numerous benefits and should be part of every rosacea sufferers solution to rosacea.
So give those three organic solutions a try – many rosacea afflicted people have said they work very well!
