Treatment of facial rashes can vary based on the type and cause, but all are dependent on the same process of keeping the skin moisturized to reduce itching and keeping the skin hydrated to reduce dryness and irritation. One of the best choices for any age group to keep the skin hydrated is Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil is a plant was ester, which is safe for use on all skin rashes, and rarely causes an allergic reaction. Be careful of moisturizing products containing lanolin, which may cause an allergic reaction. Ideally, jojoba oil should be applied three to four times a day. Apply in a gentle soothing motion in the direction of hair growth to prevent the moisturizing oil from accumulating of around the hair follicle. An accumulation of lotion or oil surrounding the hair follicle can lead to clogged pores.
Strive to achieve a balance between the acidic based foods and alkaline based foods in your diet. A diet rich in alkaline-based foods will aid in skin healing. Increasing your water intake can reduce redness and skin irritation.
Another safe treatment for all types of skin rashes is an application of minerals to promote healing of the skin. Various medical physicians have used zinc in a topical application for decades to treat inflammatory skin conditions due to its potent anti-septic effect. Zinc may be used as the primary ingredient or in conjunction with other anti-inflammatory minerals. Zinc can be found in hundreds of over-the-counter skin care products and anti-inflammatory treatments.
Sodium chloride is another healing mineral due its anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory actions. Topically applied sodium chloride can reduce redness and act as a vascular constrictor to reduce skin inflammation and constrict the dilated skin vessels.
Topically applied mineral compounds enhance the body’s ability to restore the balance to the skin to aid in the healing process. One product shown to include all these beneficial minerals is Rosacea-Ltd.
