Coconut Oil may Relieve Rosacea Dryness

A dab of Coconut Oil may provide relief for the symptoms of dryness, irritation and itching from rosacea. Apply only pure oil with no additives to the skin after cleansing while the skin is still damp. Because coconut oil is rather thick, using just a drop or two of oil and gently gliding it over the dampened skin will produce a more soothing application as opposed to trying to work the thickened oil over the dry skin surface. The idea is to provide a soothing relief not add to the problem by pulling and tugging the oil over the skin.

Rosacea Facts

There are so many misunderstandings and myths about rosacea and knowing the facts about rosacea can help you in making positive decisions about the health and treatment of your skin.

What is true is that when people drink too much alcohol their facial skin may develop a flushed appearance but this is caused by the alcohol dehydrating the body resulting in a more rapid rush of blood to the skin’s surface layers of skin to replace the moisture lost due to dehydration.

But what if rosacea is not s genetic condition but a learned condition as others have theorized? This being the case, what has been learned can be unlearned, behavior can be modified and controlled, and thus rosacea can be controlled.

There is growing speculation and even some confirmed proof that rosacea is the product of an immune system malfunction. That weakness within the immune system results in a reactionary process resulting in rosacea symptoms. The theory being that the largest organs within the body will be the first to display signs and symptoms […]

Neck Rosacea

In some instances rosacea can migrate from the facial area to the neck and upper front of the chest area. The affected skin may appear red, blotchy or even appear sun burnt. In most cases the symptoms of neck rosacea are limited to flushing, itching, possible dryness and a sensation of burning or heat in the affected area.

The causes of neck rosacea can be the same as facial rosacea but may also be the result of perfumes or sprays that come in contact with the skin of the neck or upper chest. Even deodorant or perfumed soaps and cleansing bars may cause dryness, redness and irritation.

Treatment for neck rosacea is much the same as facial rosacea: drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated, avoid any know triggers, soothe the skin with jojoba oil and consider Rosacea-Ltd to calm and soothe the redness and inflammation.
