5 (100%) 1 vote

Skin that suffers from Rosacea is red skin in which the blood vessels are very apparent. The skin is very sensitive, and people with this skin condition must use gentle products, to be applied in gentle movements. If you look after your skin and protect it from the sun, the redness can reduce significantly. 

1) Essential oils mix

In a small container, mix 100ml of sweet almond oil, 30 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil, 20 drops of Geranium Rosat essential oil and 50 drops of lemon essential oil. Massage it gently to your skin for 5 minutes every evening.

2) Mallow flower evening lotion

In a litre of boiling water, add 50 g of mallow flower and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to cool. Strain the lotion and allow it to cool before using.

3) Lime lotion

Leave 30 g of lime leaves to infuse in one litre of boiling water. Filter and leave to cool before using.

4) Treatment using lemon and clay

Using a little cotton wool, apply some clay water to the affected areas. Then place a slice of lemon onto the skin.

5) The celeriac mask 

You can apply it as a warm mask to your skin. Cut and steam cook the celeriac and blend it into a puree. Apply to your face while it is warm and leave for 30 minutes.

6) Organic hemp oil

This oil, which is rich in omega 3, will repair, relieve and sooth the skin. Add this to your daily skin routine.

7) Oat mask

Mix two dessertspoons of creamed oats with a dessertspoon of almond oil. Add 3 drops of rose essential oil and apply to your skin, leaving it for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

To avoid:

Certain factors can aggravate your Rosacea, you need to pay attention to what you are doing and what you are eating. It is recommended that you monitor your alcohol consumption, especially wine and beer. Also be careful to not eat food that is too hot and spicy or has too much lactose, as well as certain fruits and vegetables (grapes, tomatoes, bananas). Also be aware that extreme heat will irritate your Rosacea. If you are doing sport, try to do so at cooler times of the day. Hydrate well and protect your skin from the sun.
