Because the universe has a twisted sense of humor, treatments for acne actually make rosacea WAY worse! Many acne treatments are drying which is the worst possible thing you can do to rosacea-prone skin. Drying your skin out will actually inflame it even more and cause further breakouts. So what’s a gal to do?
Get yourself a soothing, anti-inflammatory face mask to calm your skin and alleviate flare-ups!
I tried a handful of different DIY masks to try and help my rosacea and this recipe is the result of about a year of trial-and-error for what works for my skin. Everything in this mask is meant to battle the two key culprits that trigger rosacea flare-ups: inflammation and bacteria.
By the way, this mask isn’t just for those suffering from rosacea! This mask is an extremely soothing anti-inflammatory designed to balance, restore, and baby your skin, no matter what skin issues you may have.
I like to do this mask at night because the ACV does smell a bit strong. Don’t be alarmed if you feel like you smell a bit like salad dressing, the calm, smooth, breakout-free skin is totally worth it!
