Rosacea is a common skin condition that can be found in men and women of all ages. It is most common amongst middle-aged women, and it is very treatable. Facial redness, the presence of visible veins, and small, pus-filled bumps on the face are common characteristics of rosacea. A dermatologist can help you to determine if rosacea is causing your symptoms, and there are some prescription-strength treatments available to treat this condition. However, for those who would prefer a more natural solution, there are also many home remedies for rosacea.
Green tea may be the most popular rosacea treatment. It is a natural antioxidant and even has anti-carcinogenic properties. Most importantly, though, it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce redness and swelling. To reap the benefits of green tea, you should drink at least two fresh-brewed cups each day. In addition, compresses can be made from green tea bags by soaking them in water and applying them to the affected areas. It is important to use natural green tea instead of flavored, chemically-enhanced or powdered green teas since those will not have the same impact and can even be damaging.
