22 Natural Treatments For Rosacea (#15 is Outrageously Easy)
If you or someone you love suffers from rosacea, then you know how annoying this skin condition can be. There is no real “cure,” as the main causes of Rosacea are not known. Rosacea is an enlargement of the blood vessels right under the skin, usually on the facial area, which gives the appearance of flushed or reddened skin.
Rosacea is thought to be brought on by excessive temperatures, food sensitivities, or an allergic reaction. Your doctor is likely to prescribe antibiotics, even though you don’t have an actual infection. Antibiotics are supposed to help stop the swelling and inflammation that comes with rosacea. Some doctors will also prescribe cortisone creams or steroid creams. All of these will help to some degree, but they come with side effects.
Before you try those traditional treatments and flood your body with chemicals and antibiotics that will do great harm to your digestive system, why not try some of the many natural treatments that are available? Many people find that they get relief from flare-ups, and some even find that this condition diminishes over time, with home remedies that have no side effects.
If you are using any prescription medications, talk to your doctor before trying any herbal treatments or supplements to ensure that there will be no drug interactions.
Of course, the first thing you will need to do is to avoid the triggers that set off rosacea flare-ups. Now, these differ from person to person, but some of the most common triggers are:
- Exposure to the sun
- Hot beverages
- Very spicy foods
- Strenuous exercise
Find your triggers, and avoid them like the plague.
