Firstly, let me tell why this facial mask will work for rosacea. The main ingredients will target everything rosacea-related. Hence, the honey will give you antibacterial properties, the yogurt will balance the skin tone and the apple cider vinegar will balance out the skin’s pH levels. Furthermore, the green tea contains powerful antioxidants and if you add oatmeal too, you will also benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties which will reduce the redness. Thus, let’s try it out.
The ingredients you need:
– 5 teaspoons of green tea
– 3 teaspoons of oatmeal
– 3 teaspoons of natural yogurt
– 2 teaspoons of honey
– 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
First off, make a green tea with hot water and 2 tea bags. It might seem a strong tea but you will only use a small amount. Then, mix the rest of the ingredients in a different cup until you get them well incorporated. Next, add the 5 teaspoons of green tea. Make sure it has cooled down at room temperature before you add it to the cup. Lastly, mix again vigorously for 2 minutes.
Your DIY mask will have a consistency of milky white lotion. You can now apply to your face with your fingers, gently massaging the skin focusing on the areas more prone to rosacea. Then, leave the mask to act for about 15 minutes and proceed to rinse it off with lukewarm water. Very important, you should not rinse your face with soap. Apply this mask twice a week for about a month to get the most optimal results.
