A look at Rosacea: Rosacea is a common but little-known disorder of the facial skin. Because of its red-faced, acne-like effect, it is often untreated or treated with the wrong products. Currently there is no cure for rosacea, and the signs include redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, and small visible blood vessels in the face. Other symptoms are bumps or pimples on the face and watery or irritated eyes.
Africa's Recommended Treatment:
Step #1 - Cleanse - You have to be very careful with the type of soap you use on your skin when you have rosacea. Stay away from dyes and fragrances, and stick with an all-natural blend if possible. You also want something that won't be too harsh on your sensitive skin. We suggest natural black soap. This soap is completely natural, and made with a blend of healing ingredients found right in the heart of Africa. This soap will gently and effectively replenish your skin. Break off a small piece and wet with water, rub between your hands and apply to your skin. Rinse.
Step #2 - Moisturize and Protect - Miniaturization is so important for rosacea. Many people confuse rosacea as acne and don't moisturize properly. We recommend using virgin coconut oil or Vitamin E oil. Virgin coconut oil is prevents itching. Vitamin E oil helps to give skin back its normal appearance, while moisturizing and protecting.
Alternate remedies: Take your B vitamins! Many people who suffer from rosacea suffer from low amounts of Vitamin B. Vitamin B also helps to reduce inflammation on the skin.
