Rosacea refers to facial redness. It’s a facial disorder which affects more than 14 million Americans, with women being more susceptible to this disease. The symptoms include pimples, persistent facial redness and broken blood vessels . Although, there is no solidarity on the exact cause of Rosacea, it’s believed that a weaker immune system aggravates this disease.
Here are five ways to reduce Rosacea facial redness:
1) Eat Healthy: Nutritional deficiency aggravates Rosacea. Follow this dietary routine to extinguish the state of deficiency:-
• Eat fruits and vegetables such as pomegranates, black-blue berries, prunes, cherries, apples, broccoli, onions, spinach, grapes, and beets which are a rich source of anti-oxidants and flavonoids which strengthen your veins and arteries, thus, preventing them to dilate and cause Rosacea.
• Eat fish which has high levels of Omega3 fatty acids like Sardine, Salmon and Halibut.
• Eliminate foods containing trans-fat, sugar and high fructose level.
• Eat lots of whole grains, almonds and dark leafy vegetables which are believed to have anti-inflammatory B-Vitamins.
2) Apply Camphor Oil to the affected areas of your skin after a face wash: Camphor gets easily absorbed in your skin. It works as an anodyne which gives you a soothing effect. Use camphor sparingly as it might prove to be allergic in some cases.
3) Stay Away from Rosacea Triggers: Rosacea is a skin-disorder which just comes and goes, its hard to predict. So the best way to escape Rosacea is to avoid its triggers. The common triggers include: alcohol, spicy food, heat, sun, extreme cold. Try not to over-expose yourself to these triggers. Prevention is better than Cure.
4) Dab oils on affected areas every night: Coconut oil, Shea butter, almond oil, olive oil; all are natural emollients (these lock in moisture and keep the skin hydrated). If you are reluctant to apply oil on your face, use an emollient rich moisturizing cream.
5) Consult the doctor: If the problem persists longer, then make sure you go and ask the doctor for a prescription. If tiny lines appear beneath the redness, they are the blood vessels which the disorder gradually makes visible. In such a case, a proper medicine prescribed by a doctor comes to a rescue.
Start incorporating these suggestions into your list of solutions and realize effective results. A word of caution – before using any product (be it natural or synthetic) on your skin, conduct a sensitivity test.
