It’s not unusual for us to get red-faced whenever we exercise or feeling uncomfortable due to some embarrassing situation.
However, when this reddish color insists on remaining it may be due to something else.
These red patches are often mistaken for sunburns and are caused by a skin disease called rosacea.
Rosacea usually appears in the central area of our face, cheeks, nose, forehead and chin and science still don’t know much about its causes.
However, if you do find that your face constantly red, there are some natural treatments you can try:
Oats have both anti-inflammatory qualities and soothing compounds, making them perfect for relieving itching and reducing redness.
You can make an oat paste by mixing a few tablespoons of oatmeal with some water and apply it directly to the affected area.
Let it remain for 20 to 30 minutes and then rinse it off.
Chamomile is another excellent choice for your skin because it affects it in the same way that oats do.
You can use either chamomile tea or diluted chamomile essential oil and apply it directly to your skin.
For optimal results, it is recommended that you repeat this procedure few times throughout the day in order to achieve the best results.
Aloe vera can both regenerate, heal, and nourish your skin.
To use it, the optimal thing to do is slice one aloe vera leaf open and scoop the inside gel out.
Store the aloe gel in a sealed container, and apply it on any red skin areas.
Honey is a potent moisturizer, and it can be very beneficial for those who suffer from rosacea.
Particular types of honey, such as kanuka and manuka are the best choice at treating this ailment.
You can use honey directly to the affected area and let it remain for a few minutes.
A recent study that licorice can reduce skin redness, one of the most common symptoms of rosacea.
Combine one tablespoon of licorice extract with one teaspoon of organic honey and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
Apply this mixture to your skin. Let it remain for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Repeat this method twice a day.
Some other factors can aggravate rosacea symptoms, such as excessive sun exposure, and certain types of food (spicy foods for example.)
