5 Natural Ways to Calm Rosacea

July 31st, 2015 | Rosacea, Skin care

Approximately 14 million people in the United States have rosacea. The symptoms include redness and burning, pimples, and sometimes thickening of the skin. In most cases rosacea symptoms only affect facial skin. The redness of rosacea is triggered by expanding blood vessels. Common triggers are exercise, sun, wind, war weather, stress, spicy food, alcohol, and hot showers.


Rosacea is not life threatening, but the condition can feel frustrating. There is no cure for rosacea, and those with mild symptoms may not require special treatment. There are many do-it-yourself treatments available that may help calm the skin. Check out these interesting remedies for rosacea.

Green Tea

Drink it or saturate a clean face towel in a bowl of tepid green tea for a warm clarifying compress. Green tea is well-known for its detoxification properties. This powerful tea will help purify the body and the skin.


Mix a quarter cup of oatmeal flour with a cup of water to make a calming cleanser. Oatmeal has been used for years to soothe burning, itchy, inflamed skin. Use as a quick face wash or make a paste and leave mask on face for ten minutes, then rinse away for less redness.

Licorice Extract

Licorice extract is used in many beauty products. Licorice extract goes by the name dipotassium glycyrrhizate, and is used to help control redness and inflammation. Look for products containing dipotassium glycyrrhizate to help with the symptoms of rosacea.

Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Eating a diet that is considered anti-inflammatory has been credited for helping people with a variety of ailments, including rosacea. An anti-inflammatory diet consists of eating meals based around fresh vegetables.

Many cases of rosacea are recurring. Symptoms may be treated by avoidance of triggers, or with the help of these at-home remedies. It is important to let the doctor know about any underlying health conditions that may be aggravated by rosacea treatment. Your doctor may also be able to provide more information about starting a new skincare routine to reduce redness.
