6 Coconut Oil Recipes for Rosacea Treatment

Straight Up Coconut Oil

coconut-oilTotal Time: 3 minutes

Servings: 1

Base Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil

Directions:

After thoroughly washing, rinsing, and pat drying your face, simply massage the coconut oil into the inflamed area in gentle, circular motions until absorbed. Typically, this is done as a nighttime treatment since a small amount of residue may leave a sheen on the skin. Ensure you’re using a clean pillow case each night before bed to prevent the transfer of oils, dirt, saliva, and microbes.

Special Notes:

Excessive exposure to the sun is a Rosacea trigger. Coconut oil has a natural SPF of 4 which can block out 75 percent of UV radiation for 45 minutes. Use this recipe in the morning if you’re about to head outdoors for the day.

The wind is also another Rosacea trigger. Coconut oil protects the skin’s water barrier and will prevent water loss and skin damage when it’s blowing like tornado outside. Use this recipe before braving windy weather.

When Rosacea flareups are causing painful and irritating sensations, mix the ingredients together to calm and soothe the skin. Only use a small amount to prevent and apply to the area in circular motions. Using it at night will strengthen the skin’s water barrier to retain moisture and will leave your skin better prepared for makeup application in the morning. Apply once daily.
