Rosacea is a skin condition that causes facial redness, often resembling a sunburn. Small acne-like bumps may occur on various area of the face as well. Several potential natural cures for rosacea are available, including the use of apple cider vinegar or increasing vitamin B intake. Not each patient will respond the same way to treatment, so a period of trial and error may be necessary in order to find a particular treatment that will provide positive results to the individual patient.

Apple cider vinegar is among the most popular natural cures for rosacea. The skin naturally contains a certain amount of acid. This acid balance is often interrupted when a rosacea outbreak occurs. Applying apple cider vinegar to the face daily will add acid back to the face and help to clear the skin.

Many patients with rosacea suffer from a deficiency in one or more of the B vitamins, particularly vitamin B-2. For this reason, one of the most practical natural cures for rosacea involves adding these vitamins to the diet. Foods rich in vitamin B-2, also known as riboflavin, include leafy green vegetables, almonds, and mushrooms. Vitamin supplements may also be purchased without a prescription at most drug stores.

Licorice is an herb with many healing properties, making it an obvious choice for many who are searching for natural cures for rosacea. Licorice root can be used in an ointment, or a simple tea can be made with the herb. This mixture is then applied to the face several times per day during a rosacea outbreak in order to reduce the redness.

Facial cream made with green tea is rapidly advancing as one of the more popular natural cures for rosacea. This type of facial cream is particularly useful in patients who have bumps known as pustules along with the redness. Green tea facial cream is typically applied to the face twice per day during an outbreak.

Many rosacea patients have found that food intolerance may increase the frequency of outbreaks. This places dietary changes among the available natural cures for rosacea. In order to determine which food items may trigger outbreaks, an elimination diet may prove to be useful. An elimination diet involves removing all of the most common food allergens from the diet, including foods such as dairy and wheat. These foods are slowly introduced back into the diet, one at a time, to test for skin reactions.

Take an oat bath.

@donasmrs-- Pine tar soap is good, my cousin uses it regularly. She and I both have rosacea and we follow rosacea natural treatments. I refuse to use oral antibiotics or topical medications.

I don't use pine tar soap, but I use a glycerin soap with oatmeal which I think is great.

I also believe in feeding skin from the inside out. What we eat or don't eat is just as important. I eat very healthy and take supplements. My every day supplements are fish oil, vitamin E and vitamin B complex. My skin has been looking better, particularly since taking fish oil. It has omega 3 in it which I think is beneficial for skin.

Has anyone tried natural pine tar soap as rosacea and acne treatment? Does it work?

By ysmina — On Feb 09, 2013

I don't think there is a cure but there are definitely natural remedies for rosacea that can help with the symptoms.

The ones I know of are aloe vera, emu oil and coconut oil. I have tried aloe vera and I think it's great. It gives a cooling sensation and soothes skin. It helps reduce redness. Emu oil is good for inflammation, but made my skin break out.

I have not tried coconut oil.

I'm sure here are many other natural products that can help.
