Winter weather can take a serious toll on our skin. The sudden influx of dry air and fierce, bitter winds can cause a number of issues like redness and bumps on the skin during the cold and blustery weather. Dry, cold air can set off redness in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead, similar to facial flushing. Even when you moisturize, you can still get dry, itchy, red skin.
This persistent, inflammatory skin condition could get worse over time causing small yet painful papules and pustules on the face. The symptoms can get progressively worse, if left untreated.
Fortunately, there are several efficient natural remedies you can use at home to reduce facial redness. On your road to recovery, these remedies work well in addition to your skincare regimen. Try these natural ways to reduce facial redness.
Coconut oil is an extremely well-liked natural skincare product. It possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and hydrating qualities—the perfect properties for your skin. All you need for this natural cure is a tiny bit of quality coconut oil. Apply directly to the area of redness. Coconut oil can be stored for a very long period in a jar.
Green tea is renowned for its ability to reduce inflammation. Get free of the redness on your face, and apply it topically. Prepare a cup of green tea for yourself. Put it in the refrigerator to finish cooling for about 45 minutes. After that, rub the affected regions with a piece of cloth that has been soaked in the tea. Use this home treatment frequently for better effects.
Aloe vera is often considered one of the best cures for skin problems due to its healing properties. Skincare products made with this succulent plant can be soothing and moisturizing. It is a commonly found ingredient in skin and hair care products. These aloe vera products are great options to get rid of redness on the face, using them alongside your skin rejuvenation treatments.
Honey helps in moisturizing the skin since it is a rich source of humectants. Adding moisture can help manage symptoms of rosacea since skin dryness is believed to make the condition worse.
One of the best methods to get free of face redness on the nose, face, and skin is raw honey. Your face should be covered in a modest amount of honey before drying. Before rinsing it off with lukewarm water, wait for 30 minutes.
Avoid Hot Drinks –
People are more likely to sip on warm soups, waters and drinks during the winter. However, a hot drink can trigger a flush in your face and a flare-up of your rosacea. If it’s hot enough to make you feel overheated, then it is too warm and may cause a flare. Warm temperatures aggravate the skin to increase blood flow, triggering facial flushing. Drink it at a lukewarm temperature so you don’t overheat.”
Wear protective gear: Try to keep your face covered as much as possible to keep the wind from irritating the blood vessels on your face. Make sure to have a warm scarf that covers the bottom of your face to block the wind when you go out of your house If your hands suffer from dry skin due to excessive washing, consider wearing gloves when washing dishes or going out especially in winter. Covering up the face when outdoors and replenishing the skin’s moisture barrier is a good first step to reduce any pain and swelling, but you may need a deeper treatment to help your skin recover properly
Winter is already a burden on your skin. Take precautions to ensure smooth sailing and smooth skin
