Apple cider vinegar for rosacea: The Skin Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
The Skin Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
From avocado facials to honey scrubs, reaching into your kitchen cabinet in hopes of attaining clearer, smoother skin is nothing new. But does apple cider vinegar (ACV), another superfood ingredient, deserve a spot on your bathroom vanity?
If you’ve considered using this pantry staple to help treat acne or another skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea, that isn’t surprising. The popularity of ACV has only grown in recent years, thanks to its reputation for healing common infections and wounds, or lowering blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, as some research shows. You should know that all those benefits haven’t been proved; long-term randomized controlled trials on the potential effects of ACV in humans are lacking, notes Harvard Medical School. (And, as UChicago Medicine points out, despite what you may have read online, ACV won’t cure cancer.)

When it comes to helping you achieve a healthier complexion, some of the components in ACV may help, but experts are cautious about the ingredient’s use orally or infused in beauty products. Below we explore the possible benefits and risks.
What’s in Apple Cider Vinegar That May Offer Health Benefits?
“Apple cider vinegar is the new ‘it’ girl,” says Patricia Farris, MD, a clinical associate professor at the Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans and a founder of Sanova Dermatology in Metairie, Louisiana. The vinegar, Dr. Farris says, is “being touted for medical benefits including controlling blood sugar, weight loss, and lowering blood pressure.”
Farris adds that vinegar has polyphenolic antioxidants, which may offer health benefits. ACV is high in pectin, a polysaccharide that occurs naturally in apples and may play a role in improving the skin’s barrier, according to a study published in January 2014 in Biomolecules & Therapeutics.
While human research on the potential benefits of ACV is limited, some people have experienced health benefits from the vinegar. According to UChicago, probiotics, nutrients, and the chemical compound acetic acid are the potentially beneficial parts of this rosy-hued vinegar. In ACV, the probiotic is the “mother” formed from the yeast and bacteria during fermentation. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that are also in foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Still, not just any bottle of ACV will boost your gut health. Abigail Waldman, MD, a dermatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, says that most ACV has the bacteria filtered out of it. And even when you can buy unfiltered or unpasteurized ACV that contains bacteria, there’s no guarantee that these bacteria contribute to healthy gut flora the way the aforementioned fermented foods might.
“ACV, like most fruits and vegetables, may serve as a prebiotic, providing the food for your gut flora to consume,” says Dr. Waldman, who is also an instructor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School.

How May Using Apple Cider Vinegar Help Improve Your Complexion?
A study published December 2017 in Natural Product Research suggests that ACV offers antifungal and antibacterial properties, but the research on how it may affect your complexion is lacking, says Melissa Piliang, MD, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. “There is really no good scientific evidence proving the [skincare] benefits of ACV [topically or orally], and it can be harmful,” she says, adding that it can help skin conditions if used cautiously and with supervision from a board-certified dermatologist.
There are a few things in ACV that may boost the appearance and health of your skin.
Acetic acid Research has shown this acid is antifungal and antimicrobial. When used topically, it clears bacteria that may be related to either infections or skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis (scalp eczema), and eczema.
Citric acid This is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs are used to increase skin cell turnover, and have been shown to decrease wrinkles and age spots.
Acetic acid and citric acid are found in higher levels in ACV, but they are also found in other types of vinegar. White vinegar probably works as well for skin conditions as ACV does, Waldman says. “Doctors have been using vinegar soaks forever. The theory is that ACV has more citric acid, which might be where the hype is coming from, but a lot of the effects are overblown,” she says.

Can Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar Improve Your Health?
Drinking ACV has become popular as a way to improve gut health, but Dr. Piliang says that this benefit isn’t a sure thing. “Data suggests it, but we’re a ways from saying it will magically change your microbiome in a positive way. There are so many factors in what is in your microbiome and your gut,” she says.
So if you want to try it, manage your expectations. Farris recommends diluting it in water (1 tablespoon per cup of water) and drinking it as part of your daily routine.
To help mask the taste of ACV, a cup of tea, juice, or other nonalcoholic beverage can substitute for water for a flavorful alternative. The important thing is to avoid drinking ACV by itself, because in its pure form it has been associated with burns to the mouth and esophagus, and it can eat away at tooth enamel, according to a Dutch study published in December 2012.
Piliang says she’s seen reports of people having inflamed mucosa in their mouth, stomach, and esophagus from drinking ACV. “A tablespoon in a glass of water once a day is probably not going to do anything bad or good, but some people take things to the extreme,” she says.
Neither Waldman nor Piliang has heard of patients drinking ACV and successfully treating a skin condition.

Diluting Apple Cider Vinegar Is Key to Using It Safely
While Farris notes the potential benefits of consuming diluted ACV orally, she does not recommend applying pure ACV to your skin, as the acids in it may cause chemical burns and irritation, according to a June 2015 article in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. “Putting it on the skin straight up is highly irritating, and I have seen many patients who have irritated and burned their skin by repeated use of apple cider vinegar. I advise patients against using this particular home remedy for this reason.”
For skin infections, Waldman advises making a dilution of 1 tablespoon of ACV per 1 cup of water. There’s a wide range of recommended concentrations, but it’s generally advisable to start there and see how much you can tolerate.
“The higher the concentration, the more likely it’s going to irritate your skin,” Waldman says. “But it probably also works better because of the higher levels of acetic and citric acid. It’s a balance. You never want to use ACV in its concentrated form.”

How Apple Cider Vinegar May Help Treat Skin Conditions
Experts have mixed opinions on the use of ACV as a treatment for skin conditions. Anecdotally, they’ve heard both of successes and bad reactions. Waldman doesn’t recommend that her patients use ACV but doesn’t dissuade those who are using it successfully. “If you have a mild condition, it might help, but for more severe cases, it’s probably not going to be the end all, be all of products,” she says.
Some basics to keep in mind: Your skin has an outer layer, the epidermis. “That layer is essentially like a brick wall. When you pull it apart, water gets out and irritants can come in,” Waldman says. “A lot of face washes, toners, and bar soap are just too harsh and strip that layer.”
The pH of skin is slightly acidic, and so is ACV, so if you have dry skin, you can generally use it without stripping the epidermis. You want to keep everything where it belongs — the lipid layer in place, to keep the irritants from penetrating into the skin, Piliang says.
Acne forms when keratin, the main protein in your skin, builds up in a pore and forms a plug (a blackhead or a whitehead). AHAs, like citric acid, dissolve the keratin so the pore can open up and drain, and it helps make pores appear smaller and improve the appearance of acne. Retinoids and benzoyl peroxide have the same effect.
“We know that breaking down keratin can help acne, and ACV does contain AHAs, so the potential is there, but there just aren’t good studies to show that,” Piliang says.
If you already use an anti-acne wash or acne treatments, those tend to be irritating to the skin, causing dryness and peeling, and you could be stripping the epidermis if you add ACV to your routine.
“It defeats the purpose when you let all the water out and everything outside — chemicals in the air, irritants, bacteria — in,” Waldman says. “Everyone is a little different, and oily skin probably has a higher tolerance for applying more acidic products. Sensitive, dry skin, has a much lower threshold. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all recommendation.”
For teens with oily skin and acne, using ACV is less risky because their skin is more resistant to irritation. The oil protects the outer layer of skin, and it comes back faster in a younger person than an older adult with drier skin, Piliang says.

Eczema or Psoriasis
If you have psoriasis or eczema, you should be very careful about using ACV, because if you put it on skin that’s broken down, fissured, or bleeding, it’s going to burn like crazy and be very uncomfortable, Piliang says.
When you have eczema, your skin doesn’t have a good barrier, so it’s vulnerable to bacteria, fungus, and other organisms and you’re at high risk for infection. Using diluted ACV may help get rid of the bacteria, and therefore prevent infection, Waldman says.
Waldman says she’s seen cases where ACV has improved psoriasis, but “mechanically it doesn’t quite make sense.” She has seen that ACV helps with seborrheic dermatitis, when you have a scaly scalp (like with psoriasis), and greasy, thick pink scales on the face. It’s thought to be due to the skin’s reaction to fungus and bacteria, which is why a diluted vinegar soak may help.
RELATED: 9 Treatments to Soothe Psoriasis
People with rosacea should be very cautious about using ACV, since their skin is already very sensitive and the outer layer is already damaged, Piliang says. Waldman doesn’t recommend using ACV because rosacea is multifactorial and could be a reaction to your normal skin organisms, the sun, spicy food, coffee, and even an irritating cream.
“Rosacea can be inflamed from a lot of irritating conditions, meaning ACV could make it better, but it could very easily make it worse if used inappropriately, meaning if it’s not diluted enough or if the person is just particularly sensitive to any sort of irritant on their skin,” she says.
Waldman has seen patients successfully use vinegar soaks for chronic or acute local skin infections such as fungal infections like athlete’s foot and paronychia (infection around the fingernails). Vinegar soaks are particularly effective for treating toenail infections caused by a type of bacteria called pseudomonas, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology. This type of toenail infection comes with greenish discoloration of thenails, also known as chloronychia.
“That’s where I see ACV being used in the most effective way,” she says. “I have had acne patients who swear by ACV applied as a toner after they wash their face. It’s not something I would generally prescribe, but certainly in that population, they say it works well.”
If you’re looking at skin-care products that contain ACV, Waldman warns that you don’t know the concentration of ACV you’re getting. Instead, look for products with acetic acid, citric acid or other AHAs, or make your own toner with 1 tablespoon of organic ACV in 1 cup of water. “Otherwise you’re probably just paying for labeling,” she says.
Though medical research doesn’t yet support using apple cider vinegar as an external treatment to treat skin conditions, it is currently being explored as a potential treatment for skin and cosmetic benefits in clinical settings. A study published in January 2016 in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine suggests that a topical application of apple cider vinegar may improve the impact of treatments of varicose veins in terms of both pain levels and cosmetic appearance.

How to Tell if Apple Cider Vinegar Isn’t Helping Your Skin Condition
While it’s generally deemed safe to ingest diluted ACV or apply it to your skin, when it comes to your skin, don’t overdo it, or else you’ll risk irritating your skin. If you’ve been struggling with a skin issue for a while and are using ACV in your skin-care routine, Waldman recommends going to see your primary care physician or a dermatologist.
It’s possible that ACV may be helping you, but it could be masking another condition. She’s had patients come in who think they have acne, but actually have rosacea, and patients who thought they had brown spots but had very early melanomas.
“I know everyone wants an alternative treatment, but sometimes you do need to seek medical care for things that aren’t going away,” she says. “An outside, expert opinion can at least reassure you that everything is normal or if you need to seek other input.”

10 Natural Remedies For Rosacea That Will Soothe Inflamed Skin
About 5 years ago I started noticing excessive redness of the skin on my cheeks and nose. Although I’ve never been diagnosed by a doctor, I’ve been treating it as a mild case of Rosacea, and have had a lot of relief from the following remedies.
Rosacea is a common skin disease that commonly affects facial skin. Symptoms include redness, swelling, acne-like breakouts, and even eye problems. Rosacea sufferers can experience physical pain, but many sufferers experience emotional pain as well. Rosacea flare-ups can cause sufferers to feel embarrassed and uncomfortable, disrupting their daily lives.
While there is no known cure for rosacea, there are treatments available that can help alleviate the symptoms associated with rosacea flare-ups. A dermatologist can prescribe topical or oral medications to control rosacea, and there are many natural remedies that can help soothe rosacea-affected skin.
Here are 10 natural remedies for rosacea that can help alleviate symptoms and soothe your skin.
10 Natural Remedies for Rosacea
1. Green Tea
Make a cup of green tea, then place it in your refrigerator for 30 minutes. Soak a cloth in the chilled tea, then apply the cloth to affected areas. Green tea has potent anti-inflammatory properties, which helps reduce redness and inflammation. Drinking green tea helps for the same reasons (and gives you added antioxidants!)
Grind a handful of oats in your blender or food processor. Take 1/2 cup of ground oats and mix with 1/4 cup of water to create a paste. Apply to affected areas, wait 20 minutes, then rinse with cool water and pat dry (no scrubbing!) Oatmeal is great at nourishing and calming skin.
3. Essential Oils
Make an essential oil treatment for rosacea using Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils, which both possess anti-inflammatory and healing properties. In a small roller bottle, add 1 Tablespoon of your carrier oil of choice (like coconut, avocado, or almond oil) with 2 drops of either Lavender or Tea Tree essential oil, OR add one drop of each oil. Shake the roller bottle to mix, then apply to affected areas before bed.
Honey is perfect for rosacea because it’s an excellent humectant, meaning it helps your skin retain moisture (without making it feel oily). Massage a bit of honey on affected areas, let it sit for about 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
5. Apple Cider Vinegar
Many people consume apple cider vinegar (ACV) every day to help promote balanced pH levels inside the body, which may help improve rosacea symptoms. Mix one teaspoon of raw, organic ACV with 1 cup of water and consume (adding honey if necessary to improve the taste).
You can also use ACV as an external treatment. Mix 2 tablespoons of ACV with 8 tablespoons of water. Soak a rag in the solution and apply it to affected areas for 10 minutes, rinsing afterwards. Perform once daily. This ACV treatment helps exfoliate skin and even out skin tone.
6. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a well-known skin treatment for sunburns, but works just as well for a number of other skin concerns, rosacea included. Apply aloe vera gel (from a bottle or straight from the leaf) to affected areas and let dry, then rinse and dry gently. Perform this treatment up to twice daily.
Aloe vera juice is often consumed to promote healthy skin as well. Proponents say that drinking 1 tablespoon every day can help speed up the skin’s healing process.
7. Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed oil is another popular ingested treatment for rosacea. Flaxseed oil is rich in fatty acids, which are an important part of a healthy diet, and can help reduce inflammation in the body. One popular treatment is to consume 1 teaspoon of flaxseed oil three times each day.
Have a few cucumbers on hand? Place several cucumber slices on affected areas for a cool and soothing effect.
Apply sunscreen every day! The sun aggravates rosacea, so you’re unlikely to see improvements from any remedy if your skin if your skin isn’t being protected. Use a sunscreen with a high SPF value, and added moisturizers if possible.
10. Lifestyle Changes
Inflammation can be caused or worsened by stress, so a few lifestyle changes can often go a long way towards clear skin. If you’re experiencing a lot of stress, try stress relieving activities like yoga or meditation. If your diet may be an issue, try cutting out fried, processed, and sugar-laden foods. And make sure to include anti-inflammatory foods in your diet where you can, like turmeric, ginger, garlic, onions, green tea, and cruciferous veggies (like cauliflower and broccoli).

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
What is apple cider vinegar?
You may have read some DIY skincare ideas that include using apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar, or cider vinegar, is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice. Yes, it is usually used as an ingredient in delicious salads and sauces, but did you know that apple cider vinegar contains potassium, antioxidants, and amino acids, all of which can be beneficial to the health of your skin? It also has antibacterial properties.
What is it best for?
Diluted apple cider vinegar can be used in DIY face cleansers and acne treatments, due to its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It has also been used as a folk remedy for some types of dermatitis. It could help combat acne caused by bacteria build up within our pores and around microscopic breaks in the skin. Apple cider vinegar also contains a natural antihistamine, called quercetin. Some dermatologists therefore recommend apple cider vinegar rinses to reduce breakouts associated with acne.
What is the drawback?
There is still a lot of research underway exploring the use and effects of apple cider vinegar as a skin care ingredient. Pure apple cider vinegar can cause chemical burns when applied to the skin in some people, so we don’t recommend using pure apple cider vinegar in a DIY skin care regimen without specific guidance from a dermatologist.
What is rosacea?
Rosacea refers to a redness of the face caused by a condition affecting the blood vessels in the face. It’s more common in middle-aged women with lighter complexions, although rosacea can affect anyone. The exact cause is unknown, though it is typically hereditary and not caused by pore clogs or skin infections. Many people mistake rosacea’s redness and bumpiness of the face for acne. Rosacea has no cure, and it can fluctuate in its severity from month to month.
What ingredients are best for rosacea?
There are a few ingredients that can help reduce inflammation associated with rosacea. For example, jojoba oil is good for reducing inflammation associated with certain conditions that cause redness. However, it is important to work with a dermatologist to determine the cause of redness on your skin to determine the right course of treatment if it is rosacea or a combination of concerns.
Does apple cider vinegar work on rosacea ?
apple cider vinegar may be effective for rosacea, but there are many other factors that may affect whether this ingredient would work on your skin or if there are better ingredients that may work for you.

Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets | Tackle Your Rosacea Today!
Make Acne Rosacea A Thing Of The Past
When I was first introduced to Apple Cider Vinegar as a remedy for rosacea, I was a little skeptical. It seemed bizzare that something often used as an aid to lose weight could help with a skin condition categorised by inflamed cheeks and nose, enlarged pores and over-dilated blood vessels.
However, when someone I knew who had had acne rosacea turned up at my door with completely clear skin, I decided to investigate Apple Cider Vinegar properly. It turns out that ACV is packed full of attributes that can directly combat the symptoms of rosacea, in particular type 2 (acne rosacea) and, to a lesser extent, type 3 (rhinophyma).
Natural Remedy to Treat Rosacea
When taken orally in tablet-form, which is typically an easier way for the body to absorb, Apple Cider Vinegar is a very potent internal cleanser, toxin eliminator and powerful health tonic. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce the inflammation associated with rosacea. In partnership with a topical cream, such as the Rosacea Type 2 Serum, the two treatments are formiddable when working together to combat inflammation from both the inside and out.
Apple Cider Vinegar has also been found to recolonize the digestive system with friendly bacteria. While this may not seem useful for rosacea sufferers, it is a fact that a healthy gut and blemish-free skin are intrinsically linked, meaning that it is able to counter rosacea from multiple angles. This facet of Apple Cider Vinegar is especially welcome as many sufferers of rosacea are often put on antibiotics, which don’t tend to differentiate between killing good or bad bacteria!
Dandelion root is also included in these specially selected tablets, given that they provide an added bonus in the fight against rosacea, helpting to cleanse the liver and prevent toxin build up.
Ingredients and Important Information
Our products are the only rosacea treatments widely available to be completely free from all of the following artificial additives:
- ► Tretinoin: can cause burning, stinging, dryness, swelling, and blistering of the skin
- ► Ivermectin: can cause headaches, dizziness and nausea
- ► Isopropyl Alcohol: can cause dizziness and burning or stinging of the skin

Women with osteoporosis should be wary of apple cider vinegar. Used regularly, apple cider vinegar could reduce bone density. Because it can alter insulin levels, people with diabetes should not use apple cider vinegar without consulting their doctors first.
People taking laxatives, diuretics, and medication for heart disease and diabetes should consult with a doctor before using apple cider vinegar supplements.
How to Use
Take 2 tablets with a glass of warm water before breakfast.
Biomed’s Blog — Natural Ways to Treat Rosacea and Redness
Rosacea and redness can strike anyone, and when they do, they make themselves obvious. With rosacea being one of the more visible conditions, many people wish to treat it as quickly as possible. If you find yourself dealing with rosacea and skin redness, you can rely on natural ingredients and actives to treat it naturally.
Oatmeal has long been known for its soothing properties on a variety of skin conditions. It has anti-inflammatory effects, and is both cleansing and moisturizing to the skin. An easy way to take advantage of this remedy is by soaking freshly ground oats in water, applying the remedy to your face, and leaving for 10 minutes before rinsing it off.
It might be confusing as to how taking probiotics could affect rosacea and skin discoloration, but your gut health is the basis of the health of a large portion of your body and its many systems. Find a high quality probiotic supplement and take it on a regular basis and you should see an improvement in the condition of your skin.
When you are dealing with poor gut health, the gut lining can become leaky and release toxins throughout your body. This leads to inflammation, even in the skin. By improving your digestive health through the use of probiotics, you can stop this process in its tracks.
Apple Cider Vinegar
There are many health issues that the consumption of apple cider vinegar can help, and rosacea is one of them. Consume 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed into water, both morning and night. Apple cider vinegar balances the body’s pH and you should see relief from your rosacea from 6-8 weeks after the start of this treatment.
Another natural remedy to relieve you of red skin and rosacea is through the topical use of one of the most popular teas, which is chamomile. Simply steep a few teabags in two cups of hot water, refrigerate until cool and then apply to your face with a washcloth. Continue applying the tea until you feel relief.
Essential oil of lavender is a great way to bring relief to those suffering from rosacea. Put a few drops onto a cotton ball and dab it onto the area of your face that has been affected. Be sure to purchase a high quality essential oil.
Clean Your Diet from Food Intolerances
When your body cannot properly process certain foods due to your intolerance of them, it can cause leaky gut syndrome, which leads to widespread inflammation as described above. When you clean your diet of any foods that are an issue to you, you will improve your digestive health and remove these irritants in order to promote whole body healing. Replace these removed foods with those which will bring health, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats.
For a more specific, effective action you can also try pharmacy-quality natural products. Always make sure they are supported by clinical trials and dermatological tests, in oder to ensure reliability and compatibility also with sensitive skin.
Biomed offers “Rosa Cure”, a serum specifically designed to treat rosacea and redness.

Don’t Put Apple Cider Vinegar on Your Face, Dermatologists Say
- Everything from old habits to new trends can end up causing skin issues, dermatologists say.
- Using oil products, picking at pimples, seeing unqualified providers, relying on social media for advice, and using certain ingredients are all things dermatologists wish you would stop doing.
- Going overboard with anything — from braiding your hair to using tons of products — can negatively impact your complexion.
- View INSIDER’s homepage for more stories.
When it comes to skin care, there are things you absolutely should do, like putting on sunscreen and washing your face. But there are also a fair number of things you shouldn’t do your skin, hair, and nails. Everything from old habits (like fussing with a fresh pimple) to new trends (think testing novel ingredients) can end up doing more harm than good.
Here are nine habits board-certified dermatologists say to give up now.
Using oil products
The idea of melting away the dirt or makeup on your face with oil sounds luxurious, but Dr. Caren Campbell, a dermatologist in California, told INSIDER it can cause breakouts. She’s even seen a surge of acne from patients using these trendy products.
“One of the major reasons we get acne when we hit puberty is our bodies’ hormones cause more oil production, which creates a hospitable environment for acne bacteria,” she said. “Putting oils on the face only aids in creating that ideal environment for acne.”
Picking at acne
We get it: You see a pimple on your face and you just want to pick it off. It’s a tempting thought, but Dr. Robert Finney, a dermatologist in New York, said that it will only make the issue worse. “Not only does it make the breakout worse by further rupturing the follicle beneath the surface of the skin, but you can also create scars,” he said. Translation: Hands off.
Applying apple cider vinegar to your face
One of the biggest misconceptions that people have about skin care? That natural is always better, said Dr. Brenda Dintiman, a dermatologist in Virginia. Turns out, some natural ingredients can end up causing some serious problems, and apple cider vinegar is one of the biggest offenders. “The apple cider vinegar acts as a harsh remover of the skin’s protective layer, leaving it vulnerable and red,” Dintiman said.

Seeing unqualified providers
Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali, a dermatologist in New York, has treated a lot of patients with complications from complex procedures done by unqualified providers. “It’s turned into the wild wild west unfortunately, and it’s terrifying,” he told INSIDER.
Bhanusali has seen side effects including scars and nodules, but they can be worse. His advice? See a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon if you’re considering a cosmetic procedure.
Relying on social media for skin advice
You may love turning to your favorite beauty blogger for skin care tips, but remember her skin isn’t yours. “There are a lot of great products people recommend, but they may not be best for your skin type,” Bhanusali said. One of his recent patients used an exfoliating alpha hydroxy peel she saw on Instagram, which left her with raw skin and dark spots. “Unfortunately, the concentration was too strong for her skin type,” Bhanusali said. Again, see a board-certified dermatologist for skin advice.
Consistently wearing tight braids can raise your risk of permanent hair loss.

Consistently putting your hair in tight braids
You may love putting your hair into tight braids before you hit the gym, go to a music festival, or go to work on mornings you don’t have time to shower. But Dr. Anand Haryani, a dermatologist in Florida, told INSIDER that consistently sporting plaits is one of the worst things you can do to your hair. “It may be fashionable, but it can lead to permanent hair loss,” he said.
Using black salve
Texas-based dermatologist Dr. Laura Haygood wishes patients would steer clear of black salve, which is touted as a skin cancer remedy. In reality, Haygood said, “it’s a highly destructive chemical that creates large wounds and is a completely ineffective for treatment of suspected skin cancers.”
On top of the fact that it causes wounds, black salve fools patients into thinking they are taking care of their undiagnosed skin cancer. If you’re worried you may have skin cancer, see a board-certified dermatologist as soon as possible.
Using too many products
You don’t need dozens of steps in your skin care routine to get a glowing complexion. “There’s no need to buy 1,000 products,” Bhanusali said. “A good base has three to five products or so and is consistent.”
Scrubbing your face too hard
There are two different kinds of exfoliation: mechanical and chemical, said Dr. Charlotte Birnbaum, a dermatologist in New York. Mechanical exfoliation involves physically removing your dead skin cells with a brush or scrub. That “can be too harsh on the skin and can actually lead to redness, dark spots, and acne breakouts — the exact opposite of what we want,” Birnbaum said. If you really want to exfoliate your face effectively and safely, use a chemical exfoliant instead.
How to Get of Redness on Your Face: Naturally Tips to Get Rid of Spots on Skin | VOGUE India
A glowing flush on the face is usually credited as the work of a dedicated hand with blush, but if you’re wondering how to get rid of redness on your face because of acne or rosacea, it is time to pay attention. The face is generally the focal point, but you’d be surprised at the delay that occurs in detecting recurring facial redness—while some people’s skin easily flushes after any form of exertion, others often peg it as a residual hangover from a recent bout of acne. The ‘don’t fix it if it ain’t broke’ philosophy definitely doesn’t work here, so we’ve put together a handy guide on all the causes, precautions and preventive measures you can opt for if you’ve been noticing redness on your face.
What is the cause for redness on face?
“A distinctive reddish tinge on the face is generally caused as a result of blood rushing to the capillaries under the skin due to inflammation or irritation,” reveals Mumbai-based dermatologist, Dr Madhuri Agarwal. “This is usually indicative of a skin condition called rosacea, wherein people observe butterfly redness on the face when they are exposed to the sun, consume spicy foods or get upset.” Here are the common triggers for those unwelcome red patches on your face:
1. You have sensitive skin
Sensitive skin is more than just a marketing buzzword for facial cleansers. If you’ve been noticing that your skin looks visibly red or feels inflamed even after using mild products, the outer layer of your epidermis is likely to be reactive to external agents—this means that you’re going to have to keep a razor-sharp eye on what you allow into your skincare regimen.
2. Your cleanser is too strong
If you’ve been observing persistent redness on your face, it is time to put the finer details of your skincare routine under the scanner. “Harsh ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate commonly found in foaming facial cleansers could be stripping your skin of its natural oils, as well as the parabens found in toners,”
3. You’re using alcohol-laden skincare products
“It is also advisable to avoid beauty products that contain alcohol as an ingredient, and astringent toners can leave the skin dry. Be wary of rigorous exfoliating scrubs that can also do more harm than good,” adds Dr Agarwal.
4. You’re using heavy makeup
Trying to cover up the initial signs of redness with heavy compact or foundation can only further compound the problem, she says.
5. Acne could be the reason behind the redness on your face
The bumps from that acne breakout may have finally subsided, but you may not be out of the woods yet. Acne is primarily caused when the face is clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, leading to inflammation that can, in turn, cause patches of red spreading around the problem area. “Acne can be another common catalyst, as well as skin that is sensitive and reactive to mild cosmetic products,” she adds. Apart from these catalysts, redness is also caused by certain skin conditions like rosacea, eczema and skin allergies; it is advisable to visit a trusted dermatologist in case of any persistent concerns.
Precautions to take if you are prone to redness on the face
In case you didn’t already have the notion drilled into you by every school teacher you’ve ever had, prevention is definitely better than cure. It only takes a couple of conscious steps to stay ahead of facial redness and keep your skin looking younger for longer.
While the issue may feel confined to your face alone, you should start by taking a closer look at your diet to nourish your skin from within. “Spicy foods are only aiding the inflammation, as are pungent foods or even extremely cold foods, at the other end of the spectrum. Help your skin calm down with water-based fruits like watermelons and papayas that hydrate the skin,” she recommends. Add a couple of cold-pressed juices to your daily diet to further push the toxins out the door.
Likewise, you’ll find certain skincare ingredients that keep your skin nourished for longer, and ward off flakiness and dry cells as well. “Look for products with naturally moisturising agents like almond, coconut or olive oil, as a gentler option to nurture your skin back to health. Also, when shopping, moisturisers with ceramides are a good option as they aid skin repair. Ingredients like rosehip oil, hyaluronic acid and milk, or oil-based creams, should also be on your priority list,” advises Dr Agarwal.
Again, don’t overestimate the power of basics. That cursory swipe of sunscreen before heading outdoors can keep your skin from being directly exposed to the harmful pollutants in the environment. Immoderate exposure to the sun can also lead to peeling of skin cells, which can result in redness. Make friends with the sunblock tube and keep it close. “Opt for a two-pronged approach by applying a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 before heading outdoors, as well as a physical barrier in the form of a scarf or a stole over your face, to ward off sun damage for longer,” she adds.

Asterisks often appear after age 30.
Manifestation of cuperosis on the skin of the face after the procedure
Couperosis is micro ruptures and an increase in the diameter of the smallest blood vessels – capillaries. The process takes place due to a violation of their elasticity.

- Problems with internal organs – liver diseases, cardiovascular disorders, including hypertension.
- Sunburn and tanning bed abuse.The surface of the skin dries up, becomes thinner, which can provoke capillary disease.

90,000 is not a place for defeat, or how to cure couperosis Ukrainian medical systems
If you suddenly notice redness on the skin that does not go away, or you are worried about dryness and flaking, perhaps these are the first symptoms of rosacea.Read about what kind of disease it is and what methods of treatment are the most effective in today’s article.
Essence of the disease and its symptoms
Couperosis is a disease characterized by impaired blood circulation in the upper layer of the epidermis. When the blood stagnates, the load on the walls of the capillaries increases, so they become more fragile, thin and expand, as a result of which redness appears. Couperosis is only the first stage of the disease, the chronic stage is called rosacea.At the first symptoms of the disease, you should consult a doctor to prevent the development of the disease.
The main symptoms of rosacea are:
- redness that appears and disappears;
- Permanent redness that does not come off;
- red lumps that may resemble acne;
- Visible blood vessels;
- eye irritation, which manifests itself in the form of redness, swelling, frequent appearance of barley;
- burning, itching, tightness;
- excessive dryness of the epidermis;
- skin thickening;
It should be understood that rosacea can appear not only on the face, but also affect any part of the body.
Causes of occurrence
The reason for the development of vascular lesions may be:
• Genetic predisposition
If the closest relatives suffer from vascular lesions, the likelihood of being exposed to this disease increases significantly.
• Excessive alcohol consumption
Alcohol dilates blood vessels.Alcohol consumption often negatively affects the condition of blood vessels and skin.
Tobacco smoke thinns the walls of blood vessels, removes moisture, as a result of which rosacea can appear even at a young age.
• Incorrect food
Food that is too hot or spicy will damage the capillaries. Also, a strong craving for coffee or chocolate can affect circulatory disorders.
• Temperature changes
If you like to get out of the sauna and jump into a cold pool, then we have to upset you: sudden temperature changes are one of the reasons for capillary thinning.
• Visit to the beach and solarium
Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays on the beach or in a solarium negatively affects the state of the vascular capillaries.
When our body is under stress, all systems begin to work more actively, including the circulatory system. As a result, pressure increases, which leads to vascular damage.
Treatment of rosacea
Treatment of rosacea should be developed individually for each patient.
Initially, it is necessary to establish the cause of the onset of the disease. If the problem is inside, then oral medication is prescribed.
The main drugs used for treatment are:
It is used for advanced form of rosacea. The preparation contains vitamins C and P.
It is used to increase the elasticity of the epidermis and improve blood flow.
Prescribed if the affected area is very large.
In addition, doctors advise the use of the correct care products. This means that aggressive abrasive products are excluded. Wipe after washing gently, without stretching the skin. Be sure to use a high SPF sunscreen before going out, even if it’s winter.
In addition to drug treatment, you can deal with visible blood vessels using professional cosmetic procedures, namely:
• Ultrasonic cleaning
The technology is used for deep cleaning to accelerate regenerative processes, as well as improve cell permeability to medicinal drugs.
• Laser treatment
Laser radiation is used to induce coagulation of damaged vessels. That is, when the vessel ceases to receive blood along with nutrients, it dies, and the blood is redistributed through healthy vessels. After laser treatment, experts recommend avoiding stress, overvoltage, and also advise giving up alcohol.
This technology allows you to eliminate not just the symptoms of the disease, but directly affect the cause.The photorejuvenation method uses high-intensity pulses of light to target problem areas.
• Ozone therapy
Ozone therapy is an injection procedure that involves injecting oxygen under the skin using a fine needle. The method increases the elasticity of cell membranes, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and also increases antioxidant protection.
The current pulses used improve microcirculation, increase elasticity, and also stimulate the activation of the protective functions of the skin.
The method is injection, that is, the result is achieved with the help of injections of special preparations that strengthen the walls of blood vessels, make the skin more elastic, and the affected capillaries less visible. It should be noted that mesotherapy must be combined with other procedures.
To improve the results of drug treatment, it is recommended to make the following face masks at home:
- Mix 5 grams of ground ginger, dilute in hot water.Wait for the mass to cool down, then apply on your face. You need to keep it for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Ginger has a positive effect on blood microcirculation.
- Mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with three tablespoons of water. Use a cotton pad to lubricate your face in the morning and in the evening to have an antiseptic effect and restore the regeneration of the epidermis.
- Take a tablespoon of green clay, mix with warm water. Keep the resulting gruel for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the type of skin.Rinse off with warm water. Clay aims to narrow pores, eliminate puffiness and redness.
- Take a saucer, squeeze the lemon juice into it, add two tablespoons of olive oil. Put the mass on a clean towel, then apply to the affected area for 10 minutes. This mask saturates cells with vitamin C and accelerates regeneration.
Before using any of the remedies, consult with a specialist if this method of correction is right for you.

90,000 Couperose skin. Treatment of rosacea on the face
Elena asked to write about rosacea of the skin and which creams are better to choose for the face.The topic has long been in the drafts, so I decided not to preserve it and write about rosacea, especially on the forums there are constantly questions about the treatment of rosacea on the face.
First you need to understand what is skin rosacea .
This is one of the conditions in which the skin can remain from the onset of the development of rosacea to its treatment, or go into a protracted chronic stage of inflammation, if you do not pay attention to rosacea and do not engage in treatment.
Couperosis of the skin is visible capillaries on the face
Couperosis of the skin is a condition of the face in which dilated capillaries appear in the form of single vessels or a developed mesh, they turn white when pressed.The network of capillaries on the face is also called cobwebs, spider legs, spider veins.
It is not so easy to get rid of rosacea, especially if it is neglected.
It is important to understand that it will take several full months for the treatment of and there is no guarantee that all the vessels will disappear. Some of the larger ones may need to be removed with a laser.
Couperose causes of appearance
Primary causes of rosacea and bursting capillaries on the face depend on skin aging and sun damage, as well as chronic inflammation, heredity, hormonal changes and the quality of skin that is easily damaged.
Some causes of rosacea on the face:
- Sun damage to the skin, type UVA
- Increasing age, aging and thinning of the skin
- Long-term inflammatory skin diseases (acne, rosacea), trauma and damage
- Hormonal fluctuations (puberty, pregnancy, menopause)
- Pregnancy (an increase in the amount of blood in the body leads to varicose veins, varicose veins and rosacea)
- Excess weight
- Sharp temperature fluctuations
- Damage and chronic liver diseases
Most often, rosacea of the skin is a hereditary problem that worsens with age, sun damage to the skin and inflammatory diseases.As we age, collagen and elastin are produced less and less, which leads to thinning of the skin.
If rosacea is present, rosacea and vascular network also appear on the cheeks and wings of the nose. Alcohol, wine and smoking increase the development of rosacea, and liver damage leads to the appearance of particularly visible capillaries.
Any trauma and damage to the skin, surgical operations can also lead to onset of the development of rosacea . This type of reason also includes intensive cosmetic procedures.
People with fair skin are more prone to rosacea and dilated capillaries than those with olive and dark skin. Also, rosacea appears more often in people with thin, dry and sensitive skin.
In women, rosacea appears more often than in men, this feature is associated with the influence and surges of hormones.
Treatment of rosacea on the face
Having dealt with the causes of the appearance of rosacea on the face, we can reduce the influence of some factors on the development of rosacea, which without prevention and treatment will grow, increase in area and become more pronounced due to age-related thinning of the skin.Therefore, they need to be dealt with in any case, but …
As such, there is no program for the treatment of rosacea on the face in Russia. The maximum that the doctor suggested in an ordinary clinic is to drink a pharmacy routine to strengthen blood vessels.
At the Department of Dermatology of the Sechenov Institute they will advise you to make lotions with green tea . This is what I was offered in a paid consultation with the coolest professor of the Institute.
This is sad. Meanwhile, American dermatologists are already using established schemes for the prevention and treatment of rosacea, as well as preparing the skin for laser removal of blood vessels.
These methods allow:
- Prevent the formation of new droplets
- Reduce redness of burst capillaries
- to tighten the skin and increase resistance to damage
- Prepare patients for laser treatment of rosacea to avoid the possibility of post-inflammatory pigmentation and persistent redness.
Prophylactic treatment for rosacea involves the use of gentle cleansing for the skin, with an obligatory emphasis on topical application of vitamin C and daily sunscreen (sunscreen) with a high degree of protection against UVA rays.
To enhance the effectiveness, creams with retinol, isotretinoin and other derivatives of vitamin A are added to the program for the treatment of rosacea on the face.
Retinol is not only the main anti-aging component today, but it helps to reduce the visibility of capillaries, because it enhances collagen synthesis in the dermis, thereby minimizing the appearance of new capillaries.
The rosacea treatment program consists of serum with vitamin C twice a day and sunscreen.If desired, retinol and a soothing cream are added to reduce redness. This is the most effective rosacea treatment and laser preparation program. All details are here.
Where to Buy: My favorite Vitamin C Serum and Light Retinal Serum, both are great for sensitive skin.
Laser removal of blood vessels on the face
Despite the treatment of skin rosacea, it will not be possible to get rid of the dilated blood vessels on the face completely, especially if these are thick, purple capillaries.Then you should turn to the method of removing blood vessels on the face with a laser.
Before laser procedures, dermatologists recommend using the above treatment regimen for rosacea for at least 2-3 months in order to improve the quality of the skin and prepare it for laser removal of the remaining vessels, as well as to avoid post-laser inflammation and pigmentation.
Which face laser will help remove rosacea?
Large and old capillary threads should be removed with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser therapy.Smaller vessels and rosacea spots are removed with a Nd: YAG laser using a pulse width of 20 ms or greater, or with a VersaPulse laser. Dermatologists themselves write reviews about the use of IPL lasers for themselves.
IPL and other lasers do not replace further prevention, without which the problem will reappear after a while. Preventing further dilated capillaries and reducing redness – this is the strengthening of blood vessels, daily vitamin C and sun protection, retinol courses at night.
