Top 10 Home Remedies for Rosacea

Happy Wednesday my beauties! I wanted to write this post today because I personally suffer from Rosacea, and I am always looking for ways to treat it and (hopefully one day) cure it. For those who don’t know, Rosacea is a skin condition that causes redness in the face. My personal Rosacea is concentrated to my cheeks, which makes it very hard to wear makeup without looking like I dipped my face in a blush compact. So, let’S talk about some ways to treat it!


Remember getting little itchy breakouts (or God-forbid chicken pocks) as a kid, and your parents would put you in a bath with oatmeal and chamomile? This is basically the same treatment!

How do I use It?

Steep 4-6 chamomile tea bags in three cups of boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove the bags and place the tea in the fridge until it’s cold. Get a washcloth and soak it in the tea. Apply this to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. You can do this multiple times a day for severe cases!

Green Tea

Green Tea is basically one of the best substances on Earth. It can do so many great things for your body! It is an anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogen, and contains antioxidants that will protect and heal the skin.

How Do I Use It?

Make and refrigerate two cups of green tea. Soak a cloth in the tea and hold on the affected area for 10-15 minutes. This should reduce redness and irritation. You can repeat twice daily to improve your Rosacea.


As I mentioned above, Oatmeal (along with chamomile) is an anti-inflammatory that will sooth your skin.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Mix 1/2 Cup of powdered Oatmeal and 1/4 cup water in a large bowl. Apply to your skin and let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. You can repeat this twice a day.


Licorice also has inflammatory properties, particularly the extract. It will promote healthy cell growth and reduce irritation.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Mix 1 TBSP of licorice powder, 1 tsp honey, and 1 tsp aloe vera gel. Apply to the affected area and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat twice a day for 4 to 8 weeks.

Lavender Oil 

Lavender contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and is used in many skin care items because of this.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Soak a cotton pad or similar item in pure lavender oil and massage it onto the affected area. Repeat 2x per day for a few weeks for best results. The lavender will shrink blood vessels and relieve inflammation.


Honey somehow ends up in all of my top 10’s, doesn’t it? Anyway, honey has most of the same qualities as all of the other remedies on this list; it’s an anti-inflammatory and contains antioxidants to help reduce inflammation and irritation.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Massage one to two tablespoons of honey onto the affected areas of your skin and let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer. Repeat twice a week.

Apple Cider Vinegar 

Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural disinfectant, which will kill bacteria and yeast on the skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory and maintains the pH balance of the skin.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Mix one tsp of ACV and 1 cup of filtered water, then add one tablespoon of honey. Drink this twice per day to improve your skin gradually. Drink one serving in the morning and one at night.
  2. Dilute the ACV with a bit of water (1:2, 2 tbsp ACV to 8 tbsp water) and soak a cloth in the mixture. Apply it over the affected area and leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. You can repeat this 1x per day for two months for best results.

Aloe Vera

We all know how much Aloe helps when you’ve got a sunburn, and it will basically do the same thing for Rosacea

How Do I Use It?

  1. If you have access to it, you can apply fresh aloe gel onto the affected areas. Let it dry onto your skin and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. You can repeat this twice a day.


Turmeric is an antiseptic herb with antibacterial properties. It can reduce inflammation and redness when used regularly.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Mix together 1 teaspoon of turmeric and one tablespoon of plain yogurt. Cleanse your skin and apply this mixture as a mask to the affected areas. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat once per day.


Flaxseed is also an anti-inflammatory and can help reduce redness and soothe irritated skin.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Drink 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil three times per day to reduce inflammation. Keep up this regimen for 2 months for best results.
