When you have Rosacea, it’s not an easy thing to mask. The red skin that is at the foundation of this common skin condition is not only uncomfortable it’s also highly noticeable. It’s virtually impossible not to feel self conscious about it. There are obviously many medical avenues you can pursue in an effort to rid yourself of this problem, but they don’t all work and most are incredibly expensive. There are some home remedies to treat Rosacea symptoms that can have you feeling and looking better quickly.
One of the most uncomfortable aspects of having this skin condition is the fact that your skin can feel as though it’s on fire. That sensation is reflected in its appearance. One of the easiest and effective home remedies to treat Rosacea redness is to use a cool, damp cloth as a compress for a few minutes at a time. Simply soak a clean, soft cloth in some ice water, wring it out and then place it on the affected area. Sit back and relax for a few moments and when you remove the cloth you’ll notice the redness has diminished quite a bit. You can repeat this process several times throughout the day as needed.
Chamomile tea is one of the best home remedies to treat Rosacea symptoms. Obviously drinking chamomile tea is relaxing, but it serves another purpose too. Brew up a large pot of the tea and let it steep for several minutes. Then remove the tea bags and cool the tea. It’s optimal to place it in the refrigerator and allow it to get quite cold. Then use a soft cloth to apply the tea directly onto the red skin. This helps to calm it down quickly and is safe so it can be used whenever you need it.
