10 Natural Home Remedies For Redness In Face
If your face seems to turn red for no reason, go back to normal, and randomly turn a shade of red again, then you may have rosacea. Rosacea can make your face turn red from time to time. It can be itchy and irritating.
If you have rosacea it may look like you have acne or sunburn. Rosacea is commonly brought on by triggers. Keep track of what you are doing before your face turns red so that you can learn what your triggers are.
If you think that you have rosacea, or general face-redness, then these natural home remedies should be able to help.
One natural remedy to reduce redness in your face is by using freshly ground up cucumber. Cut and mash up a cucumber as well as you can, so that it seems like a paste. Put the paste on your red spots or your entire face and leave it on for at least half an hour. When the time is up, rinse off the paste. Do this once a day, every day. If you do this correctly, you should see results in a month.
Like cucumber, apple can also be used to fix redness. Cut up and blend an apple until it looks like a paste. Once it gets to a paste, put it on your red spots or your entire face. Let the paste sit on your face for at least fifteen minutes. When the time is up, rinse off the paste with cool water. Do this everyday to get the best results.
#3. Horse Chestnut
Horse chestnut comes in many forms, but horse chestnut cream, or when it is a main ingredient in a cream, it can be effectively used to cure redness. Rub this cream on your red spots twice a day, every day, for best results.
#4. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera can be used to reduce redness and to make your skin softer. You can buy Aloe Vera gel in bottles, or you can get the gel directly from the plant. Whichever you chose, rub the gel on your red spots. Do this twice a day, every day, for best results.
Oatmeal can be used to reduce redness, reduce itching, and make your skin softer. Make oatmeal like you usually would if you were going to eat it. Let the oatmeal cool for a few minutes. Once it is cooled enough that it won’t burn your skin, rub the oatmeal on your red spots. Once you feel like you have rubbed in the oatmeal thoroughly, you can rinse it off with cool water.
#6. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is great natural home remedy at reducing inflammation, which in turn will reduce redness. Dip a cotton ball into some tea tree oil and rub it onto you red spots. Do this at least twice a day, everyday, for best results.
#7. Green Tea
Make a cup of green tea like you would if you were going to drink it. Once the tea is made, dip a towel or other sort of cloth into the tea. Put the cloth on your face and let it sit, or you can rub the damp towel on your face for a few minutes. Either way, this should help to reduce redness.
#8. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is one of the best home remedies that can be used in two ways to reduce redness. You can either mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into a glass of water and drink this mix twice a day. You can also dip a cotton ball in the vinegar and rub it over your face. You can also do both if you like.
#9. Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed oil can be used to reduce inflammation from the inside, which can show on the outside. For best results, you should drink a tablespoon of flaxseed oil three times a day, everyday.
#10. Licorice Extract
Licorice extract can be taken like flaxseed oil, and it helps in exactly the same way. Whichever you take, either should be able to help reduce redness.
Hopefully these natural remedies can help to reduce redness in your face.
