Best Natural Treatments for Rosacea

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

Rosacea is one of those pesky, mysterious conditions that can often be rooted in the mind-body connection.  A frustration a lot of people with rosacea have is that nothing seems to consistently help them manage their breakouts.  A new face wash or magic serum may work for a month or two, but those red blotches just keep coming back.

So what’s the trick?  A less is more approach to skincare, and a holistic approach to self-care and eating that nips those triggers in the bud.  Read on for some natural rosacea treatment facts you may not know!

Manage Stress

Stress, emotions running high, and even embarrassment can all trigger a flare-up of rosacea.  First and foremost, it is vital to have some really effective stress management techniques in place for when you start to feel those feeling bubbling up.  A regular yoga and/or meditation practice has been shown to be a significant aid to people with rosacea (just avoid Bikram or hot yoga, which can exacerbate symptoms!).  But when you’re starting to feel stressed or emotional, even just stopping in your tracks to take a 5-7 long, deep breaths with your eyes closed will work wonders!

Eat smart

Rosacea can actually have a lot of food triggers, and is linked to the digestive tract.  Sugar, wheat, dairy, spicy foods, corn, red meat, and eggs, and nightshades are the most common triggers, so the best move is to do an elimination diet for at least two weeks and then gradually add the potential problem foods back in, one food per week, keeping an eye on your symptoms.  The only exceptions?  Sugar and spicy foods.  Keep these skincare bad guys out of your diet to keep your face as glowing and clear as possible!  Opt for an anti-inflammatory, skin-boosting diet of lots of veggies (particularly dark leafy greens), whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, and omega-3 rich fish.  Include lots of cooling foods like cucumber, liquid aloe, celery, oats, and green tea.

Drink Smart

Alcohol is another major rosacea trigger.  I hate to tell you, but you’re going to have to cut down on the wine and booze!  Although wine has the strongest effect in triggering a flare-up, all forms of alcohol are bad guys here.  A study by the National Rosacea Society found that 9 out of 10 patients reported a significant improvement in breakouts after avoiding alcohol altogether.  If you must imbibe, opt for brown liquors, which are less inflammatory to the skin.  Of the helpful beverages, green tea takes the cake.  It has an amazing, anti-inflammatory effect on skin… Opt for one cup a day instead of coffee, but skip the sugar (stevia or raw honey are great!), and make sure it isn’t too hot, as heat is another trigger!

Supplements can help

There are actually a lot of dietary supplements that have been shows to drastically improve rosacea flare-ups long-term.  Omega-3’s antioxidants are key for fighting inflammation, and you can boost your dietary intake by taking a 1-2 punch of flaxseed oil and grapeseed extract.  Take it in capsule form, or use liquid flaxseed oil on your salads, in your smoothies, or drizzled on pretty much whatever (at least 2 tsp per day), and take about 50mg of grapeseed extract daily.  Probiotics have also been shown to greatly improve rosacea by restoring healthy intestinal flora and balancing the digestive tract.  Take a dairy-free probiotic everyday and include probiotic foods like kombucha, coconut kefir, and miso as well. Turmeric is another amazing anti-inflammatory supplement.  You can mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder into a glass of water (which is a little strong for my taste), or opt for turmeric in capsule form.  A vitamin B deficiency can also cause rosacea flare-ups.   A high-quality liquid or sublingual B supplement can help stop flare-ups before they start!  Lastly, cooling liquid aloe is a wonderful addition to a rosacea regimen, working to cool down inflammation and the internal source of flare-ups.  Add it to smoothies, mix with fresh juice (like cucumber!) and enjoy daily.

Minimize your skincare regimen

Though there are are quite a few skincare products on the market geared toward rosacea, all but very few can actually make symptoms worse long term.  Rosacea skin is super sensitive to additives, chemicals, and synthetic ingredients, which means a less-is-more approach to skincare tends to work best.  And guess what?  You may already have your miraculous rosacea skincare treatments in your pantry!  Instead of washing your face with drying soaps and harsh cleansers, the best solution (for rosacea as well as almost any skin problem, like acne!) is oil.  Yes, oil!  Cleansing your face with pure, natural, organic oils actually balances your skin’s own oil production, unclogs pores, soothes and moisturizes the skin, and combats inflammation and redness!  It’s best to use a combination of sunflower and castor oil in a 2:1 ratio.  Add some rose essential oil for even more anti-inflammatory benefit. You can mix up a large batch to keep in a bottle.  Wash your face with the oil every night by first massaging it into your skin for a minute or two, and then covering your face with a warm washcloth (not hot) for a minute to open up your pores and let the oil do it’s business.  Keep soaking your washcloth in warm water, ringing it out, and gently wiping the oil from your face until it’s mostly washed off.  Pat your face dry, and you’re done!

If you’d like, you can follow this with a toner of raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar on a cotton pad.  Apple cider vinegar has an amazing effect on skin ailments like rosacea, perioral dermatitis, and breakouts!  (Read about The Magic of Apple Cider Vinegar).  Another great natural toner for rosacea is pure rosewater, which has a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect on skin.

In the morning, you can actually just rinse your face with warm water, and you’re all set!  If you need a little more moisture, just dab on a tiny bit of your oil mixture.  No need for expensive, speciality moisturizers that still run the risk of irritating your sensitive skin!  Hemp seed oil can also be used as a great anti-inflammatory moisturizer.

Go natural with makeup

As much as possible, opt for natural, talc-free mineral makeup, rather than heavy foundations or chemical laden products. A green-tinted base with mineral sun protection will minimize redness without triggering a flare-up.  Use gentle, soft brushes, and go easy on the blush and bronzer, since your face already has some natural red color.  To offset the redness of your skin, use cool-toned lip and eye colors.  As with all your skincare, less is more!  Focus on sun protection, and natural, minimal ingredients.

Keep cool

Keeping cool, both mentally and physically, is a major element in managing rosacea.  We talked about stress up above, but other heating emotions like anger and frustration can cause flare-ups as well.  Obviously, it’s impossible for most of us to live a life devoid of these emotions, but we can do a lot to keep them in check. Calming and cooling habits like meditation, hatha yoga, swimming, pranayama (breath work), and time in nature (during the cooler parts of the day) all work to holistically keep our bodies cool from the inside out.

Likewise, it’s important to stay physically cool.  Avoid being in the sun during the hot times of the day, dress appropriately for the weather, use the AC or a fan when it’s hot in your home, and avoid heating activities like saunas, excessively strenuous physical activity, hot yoga, etc.  If you feel like you’re overheating, sip some cool water, put a cool washcloth on your face, and take some deep, cooling breaths.

    There are certain contrasts between acne rosacea and acne vulgaris. As you probably know, acne vulgaris is the most common form of acne which seems to start with the onset of puberty and is characterized by the formation of whiteheads and blackheads. Acne rosacea, on the other hand, usually makes its first appearance between the ages of 30 and 50, is confined to the face — mostly the nose, cheeks, chin, forehead and eyelids — and is not associated with overactive oil glands.;

      This is a great post. I am so glad to have found you. I have been in the health profession for 24 years. I have found with some clients that the issue of chronic liver/portal/circulation congestion is at the root of rosacea skin problems. Emotions that tense the liver also contributes to ‘lack of flow’ and can exacerbate the flare-ups. But of course, there are no two people alike. I look forward to some great reads. Thanks for being you.

        It’s crazy how many chronic health problems are impacted by stress, emotions, and anxiety. More and more, research is showing that deep breathing, yoga, and meditation are all so healing to these inflammatory conditions, including skin imbalances.

        Please stay in touch, and thank you for reading!

    For some women, losing hair is a symptom of a medical problem.

    Coenzyme Q10 improves scalp circulation and raises the tissue oxygenation levels,
    thereby promoting hair regrowth. Men and women who
    have long, medium or short hair can benefit equally
    from products that contain this wholesome milk.

    I totally agree that the best solution for rosacea is not drying products, but oils. Essential oils to be specific.

    This is a quality article, and I would humbly like to recommend a similar article that I wrote here:

    Looking forward to more posts from you Natasha!

    My skin is sensitive, with mild rosacea, and I’ve had mild acne for over a decade (occasionally I’d clear it up with various face products but they always made my skin splotchy red, would cause flareups with the rosacea, or were so dying I’d end up with flaky skin). After two weeks of using the Somaluxe Redness Repair Moisturizer, my skin is almost completely clear of any signs of rosacea or acne. Plus, my skin looks dewy and vibrant. Based on these short-term results, I’m expecting new skin to be completely clear of acne and signs of rosacea. I highly recommended Somaluxe Redness repair for you.

    I still am not entirely sure if I have Rosacea, or what. I’ve experienced rough scaly skin, dry skin, red itchy bumps, red itchy skin without the bumps or dryness… I’ve seen three dermatologists who’ve all shrugged and prescribed steroid cream and antibiotics. For those of you who don’t know steroids create a condition where your body will no longer respond to other medication/ treatment. They also destroy your skin barrier making it impossible for your skin to heal itself. Call me crazy but that sounds counter intuitive.

    I have been using the Somaluxe Redness Repair Moisturizer and I wouldn’t call this a miracle cure. My face did not clear up over night and it’s not perfect. But I would say my face is easily 75-85% better; less hyper pigmentation, almost no itching, almost no itchy red bumps (1 every few days vs. 4-5 every single day like before). But by and large this product is working for me.

      Hi, I have been taking capsules of grape seed extract for almost a month now and have seen positive changes. I have type one with flushing and slight spider veins on my cheeks and nose. After doing some research I have read you should only take grape seed extract capsules for a certain amount of time. I was wondering what you think or if its possible I could lower the amount Im taking and stay on that amount?
      Thanks 😊

    Great Blog! May I ask, regarding acne rosacea……would you recommend pure Argon oil as a cleanser?

    • Natasha Uspensky, CHHC
      June 20, 2016

      Hi Linda! Argan oil is a bit too pricey and rich to waste on cleansing, I would stick to using it as a serum or treatment post washing. For face wash, I like jojoba oil — great for acne and rosacea!

    I’m 36 with combination skin and large pores. I’ve been using the Grapefruit Glycolic Wash from Made from Earth for about 6 months and love it. Its a gentle glycolic wash (and I have sensitive skin) and this wash has kept my breakouts to a minimum. Over use of any glycolic acid treatment can be drying – but not with this one – Ive been using daily with no problems.

    Hi Natasha, I was diagnosed by two doctors as having acne rosacea, but I do not have any of the redness or flushing. Is it possible to have acne rosacea with just cystic-like painful bumps? I’ve tried the rosacea products (Paula’s Choice…helped for a while), acne products and many natural remedies, including Manuka honey from New Zealand ($65)…..nothing has helped!

    Hi Natasha,
    I have acne rosacea … only on my cheeks though. I have a bit of redness but what really bothers me is the pimples or pustules\papules I am not even sure how to call them. I believe for2 years I was mixing products on and on and that made ‘destroyed’ my skin. Now I use finacea( prescription from my dermatologist) however I don’t think it made a difference. I am now using jojoba oil to cleanse and right after I use rosewater ( therefore I do not use water on my skin) what do you think? Is tea tree oil good for those pimples ( red and whiteheads onmy cheeks?) and for my diet I am trying to be careful ! Thank you so much I am sending you love from Montreal , Canada. Xox

      Hi Kary!
      Tea tree, lavender, and chamomile essential oils are all great for this. Mix a could drops with some coconut oil and apply everyday.
      Diet will be a big factor, so identify any triggers and make avoiding them a top priority.
      Lastly green tea! Drink it daily, apply it as a toner. It works magic.

      Sending lots of love and healing!

    I have been newly diagnosed with rosacea and my dermatologist wanted to put me on antibiotics and steroid creams which was not going to happen, so I did some research and decided to give Dermalmd Rosacea Serum a try and I and super happy with the purchase and would highly recommend Rosacea Relief!

    A dermatologist can prescribe topical or oral medications to control rosacea, and there are many natural remedies that can help soothe rosacea-affected skin. Rosacea is a common skin disease that commonly affects facial skin. Symptoms include redness, swelling, acne-like breakouts, and even eye problems. Rosacea sufferers can experience physical pain.

    My skin is a serious issue for me, it can be patchy, red, and get intensely dry. The Somaluxe Redness Repair cream works impressively well. I’ve been using it twice a day after washing my face both morning and evening. It has a pleasant scent and hydrates my skin. It has improved quite a bit of my patchiness, and my cheeks especially have smoothed out.

    Hi there! I am 36 and I suffer from Rosacea on my nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. Also have hyperpigmentation. I have been through countless regimens both prescription and non prescription and through more facial cleansers/moisturizers than I can count. Both expensive and inexpensive. As far as the castor oil/olive oil regimen goes, how does that work with removal of mineral powder? Do I need to use a different wash to remove that or will the oil do that? Also, can this regimen be used everyday? If so, my concern is with the daily “rubbing off” with a towel of the oil and the effects of the long term skin pulling that will do? Thank you, I look forward to hearing back!

    • Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

      Oil gets EVERYTHING off, it’s amazing. When rosacea is flared up, you’ll want to use a warm (not hot) wash cloth and just hold it on your face without rubbing at all. Massaging your skin with the oil gets all the dirt out, then the warm washcloth steams open the pores. It’s ok for your skin to feel a little oily after cleansing. Any remaining oil cleanser will just act like a moisturizer! Also, try coconut oil 😉

    Help! I tried using apple cider vinegar on my face, but my whole face turned red.
    Am I allergic? Does diluting it help? Isn’t the ph too low for you skin’s ph?

    • Natasha Uspensky, CHHC
      April 26, 2018

      Yes, definitely dilute it! You can just put some on your cotton pad and run the pad under some water before using. But if you’re in the middle of a flare-up, just sticking to the oil will work best.

    Finally found a product that clears up my rosacea. After numerous visits to my dermatologist and endless facial cream prescriptions, I had given up hope that I would ever find a product that controlled/reduced my rosacea. After a little research, I found Dermalmd rosacea serum and gave it a try. What a great product! Within days of using it 2x a day, I started to notice that my rosacea started to clear up significantly, and practically disappear.

    I hope this email finds you well. I would like to contribute a CBD edibles article to your site It would be great if you could add my details to the bio along with a link to

    Here it is!

    The Ultimate CBD Edibles Guide

    Also known as cannabinoids, CBD refers to hemp content contained in the cannabis plant. Along with other cannabinoids, CBD takes the lion share of the cannabis herb. People can use cannabinoids in various ways when it is extracted from the cannabis herb, but this depends on what it contains. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD are the famous cannabinoids, and each has different effects.

    The Difference between THC and CBD

    THC edibles differ from CBD edibles in a few ways. First, CBD edibles are legal according to federal law. However, CBD edibles may sometimes contain low traces of THC, but it should not exceed 0.3 percent, which is the required threshold. Contrary, THC is known for its high effect, which people often associate with cannabis sativa, a plant species under the family of cannabis plants. Another plant species under this family is hemp. CBD doesn’t induce the body and high mind-altering effects that are associated with THC. Instead, CBD extracts are obtained from the hemp herb, which is legal in many states. You can either vape, take orally, or put CBD topically. The exciting thing is that CBD doesn’t come with the psychotropic effect that THC is known for. The impact of THC on the mind and body are quite different, and state and federal law prohibits growing in many places. Though a few countries have already legalized the THC aspect for recreational purposes, many states are still yet to approve it.

    CBD edibles are associated with energy and mood uplift. Edibles such as CBD cookies and chocolates are known for relieving stress and a variety of ailments. CBD edibles are a viable option for people with chronic conditions, where constant use of pain killers can impact their health negatively. It isn’t associated with the addictive qualities that various pharmaceuticals, such as THC contains, and it can even be used as a remedy for someone addicted to THC. Research has so far found little side effects of CBD edibles, and the benefits of its medicinal purposes are unmatched. In essence, CBD edibles are a natural option to relieve a set of mind and body-altering ailments.

    What are the Uses of CBD Edibles?

    You can use CBD edibles for various reasons. One way is that it has been used as a remedy to ailments such as inflammation, epilepsy, nerve pain, chronic pain, depression, symptoms of anxiety, and insomnia. Whether it is in the form of edible, vape as an oil, or take it topically as a lotion, CBD can be administered in different ways. CBD edibles are available in a wide range of form, including cooking oils, baked goods, and gummies. The popularity and rise of CBD continue to grow as people enjoy its benefits.

    How Can Someone Enjoy CBD Edibles?

    There are a set of different options for administering CBD edibles. It can be taken in the form of baked goods, capsules, pill, oils, or gummies. CBD edibles are safe for humans and pet purposes. Here are a few ways of taking CBD edibles.

    CBD Capsules and Pills

    Capsules and pills are similar to taking prescription drugs, and it is a great route to consider if you have no issue with CBD edibles. CBD pills and capsules intake occurs in the same fashion as with capsule and medication vitamins. Just take the tablet or pill orally and give it time for its effects to manifest.

    CBD Gummies

    Taking CBD in the form of gummies is one of the best ways to enjoy CBD edibles. Plenty of CBD gummies flavors are available, and some are reminiscent of the candy that you grew up enjoying.

    CBD Cooing Oil

    Not all CBD oils are taken through vaping. Some come in the form of oil, where users can put a few drops in the mouth and consume them orally. Others are in the form of cooking oil, which people can use for cooking sweet dishes and savory.

    CBD Edibles for Pets

    CBD Oil For Cats

    Injecting puppies and kittens with CBD hardly comes to our thoughts. However, recent studies have found that CBD edibles can improve the health of dogs and cats immensely. That’s because animals have the same endocannabinoid system like the one found in humans, and binding it with CBD edibles can help relieve anxiety and pain in animals as well. Pet owners whose dogs have been ailing for a while should consider administering CBD oil to help alleviate the pain and speed up recovery.

    CBD Oil For Dogs

    Of course, we crave for baked cakes, and CBD cookies come in that form. Get treats such as brownies and cookies to take your CBD experience to another level.

    Tips for taking CBD Edibles

    There are a few tricks to keep in mind when taking CBD edibles.

    Beginners should start with a low dosage to assess how their bodies will react to it.

    Then try to increase the dosage slowly as you monitor your body’s response.

    Take time to research the oil or edible that you buy and confirm its potency and purity level. Keep off any CBD that has traces of THC, and shop around to find the best CBD for you.

    Give the CBD time to work after having a heavy meal.

    How to Choose the Right CBD Product or Edible?

    Finding the right CBD edible is all about needs and preferences. It is up to the users to decide how quickly they would want the effects of their edibles to manifest. For example, CBD taken in an edible form can take longer to kick in because it depends on the kind of food and your digestion, but its effects are quicker when it is taken as a pill. It is up to you as well to determine whether you want something with fewer calories and sugary such as cookies and gummies. Another thing to consider when shopping for CBD is that the dosages of some edibles are higher than others. First, find out about whatever ailment you are trying to alleviate before picking your edibles. Some edibles or dosages work better for anxiety than others, while others are ideal for chronic issues and muscular pain. CBD lotions, Salve, and Cream are other options for taking CBD. You can apply Salve and Cream on a swollen or injured body part for alleviating pain. Though this is an alternative to utilizing CBD in edibles, capsules, and vaping, it still bears fruits when applied as stipulated. It is an option that users can use daily to alleviate chronic pain and handle stretch marks that are ailing them. Researching the available CBD products and which works the best for you can enable you to make the right decision for whatever CBD product or edible you would want to use.

    How CBD Edibles Work

    You first have to understand how the endocannabinoid system in the human body works to know how the effects of CBD edibles kick in. Also known as ECS, the endocannabinoid system is a biological system within the human body, and it comprises of lipid-based neurotransmitters. Its role is to bind to the receptors of cannabinoids that are scattered throughout the central nervous system. The endocannabinoid system produces cannabinoids to regulate different aspects of the nervous system as well as inflammation in human beings. It can help regulate ailments, epilepsy, and pain. Cannabinoids occur in our bodies naturally, but boosting our organs with an external cannabinoid from CBD edibles can increase the positive effects within the endocannabinoid system. The role of the endocannabinoid system isn’t only to respond to internal cannabinoids, but the external cannabinoids as well. Response to external cannabinoids that come in the form of CBD edibles can help mediate inflammation and chronic pain. Science and different studies back up the benefits of CBD edibles, and it is one of the few available natural remedies.

    Edibles vs. Vaping CBD

    CBD products are also available for use in vaporizers, but that depends on personal preferences. Some people prefer smoking while others use to take their CBD products in vape pens. Others may want to control their CBD intake by smoking instead of taking in the form of edibles. Taking CBD products in vape pens allows the effects to hit in a little quicker than taking them in the form of edibles. Vaping is a viable option for someone who would not want to wait for minutes or hours for the effects of CBD to kick in after eating. However, both edibles and vaping are discreet in a way, and the CBD will have the same results as long as the dosage remains the same.

    Incredible Benefits of CBD Edibles

    Long-Lasting Relief

    CBD edibles have several benefits over gummies and CBD inhaled with vape pens. It can take a while for CBD edibles to take effect, but the results can last longer than vaping or smoking. CBD edibles combine the active compound of cannabinoids with other foodstuffs for better results. The digestive system releases CBD slowly as digestion takes place. The results might take longer to manifest, but they are long-lasting.

    Non-Psychotropic Effects

    Of course, CBD is a compound of the cannabis sativa plant, but many people are surprised to find out that its psychotropic effects aren’t as high as THC. Instead, it offers users a sense of alerted energy and mellow mood uplift. Given its long-lasting nature, cookies and brownies infused with CBD can provide prolonged relief from everyday stressors and mild pains. It is an excellent option for anyone who would want to enjoy the effects of cannabis without any side effects.

    Easy to Make

    Though some prefer making infused cooking oils and cannabutter, CBD edibles such as brownies and cookies are simple to make. You can even add CBD extracts to baked and cooked foods for an antioxidant boost. However, note that the effects of isolated CBD are less effective compared to the cannabis plant. You can now find CBD crystals made with isolated and purified CBD online and in access points. CBD edibles are easy to dose and can give a user more control over their CBD intake.

    Less Risk of Lung Irritation

    Vape pens have become popular than ever, but their long-term implication is still yet to be determined. Thinning agents such as polyethylene and propylene glycol are also present in many vape pens. Research suggests that heating these thinning agents to temperatures above 224℃ can produce toxic carcinogens. Vape pens that don’t contain these thinning agents are available, but CBD edibles are an excellent option to avoid poisonous compounds.

    General Remedy

    Researchers suggest that care physicians can use CBD in medicine. Several CBD-infused drugs have already proved successful in treating ailments, epilepsy, and pain in clinical trials. CBD doesn’t benefit people with chronic conditions only, but anyone else who consume it as well. However, it may not work well for people with ailments related to first-aid. Research has found that some CBD edibles work the same as over-the-counter remedies, and their side effects aren’t as harsh as some of the pharmaceutical drugs.


    Some CBD forms are impractical or cumbersome. You could be using a large vape pen, and pulling it out in public may sometimes not be convenient. People who would want to boost their focus during the workday or relieve pain during a long flight can consider bringing with them a CBD gummy.

    Available Online

    Online availability is another benefit of CBD edibles. Though regulations on CBD products are little strict, online CBD vendors across the United States can sell their products online and ship them anywhere. You can also find CBD products in a handful of European nations. Those edibles that are sold online are derived from the hemp plant. People often refer to cannabis when discussing a variety of plants that can produce THC.
