Rosacea can be one of the most difficult & frustrating skin conditions to treat.
Unfortunately there is no cure and the disease comes in all different forms from mild flushing to severe blistering and scarring.
With most products on the market containing alcohols, chemical preservatives, and fragrances a simple moisturizer can be a nightmare for anyone suffering from rosacea.
Even the smallest amount of any irritant can cause extreme discomfort and painful flare ups.
But there are tons of natural remedies that have shown to improve the common symptoms that come with rosacea.
One of the hottest new natural remedies for handling rosacea is Tamanu Oil. Since Rosacea is an inflammatory condition, in traditional herbalism we turn to plant remedies that help soothe the skin
Tamanu oil is derived from the seeds of the tamanu nut tree, a tropical evergreen native to Southeast Asia. While it has yet to become the ‘it’ ingredient in modern skincare, it’s definitely not a newbie; it’s been used medicinally for centuries by various Asian, African, and Pacific Island cultures.
Tamanu oil contains calophyllolide, a molecule well-studied for delivering anti-inflammatory effects similar to that of hydrocortisone. Per a 2018 study, this molecule was also shown to be an integral part of the oil’s wound healing abilities. It also means that the oil is potentially good for inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and of course, rosacea.
But that’s not the only thing that makes this oil AMAZING for rosacea.
Having a healthy, moisturized skin is crucial to managing rosacea – Tamanu oil Is rich in fatty acids: and has a higher fatty acid content than many other oils, making it incredible for addressing dry skin, More specifically, it contains both oleic and linoleic fatty acids, which are responsible for it’s amazing moisturizing abilities.
Tamanu oil’s antibacterial properties help against a few different forms of acne & the bacteria associated with acne – and have shown to really help with inflammatory kinds of acne, similar to acne experienced by those with Rosacea.
It’s easy to see why Tamanu oil is quickly becoming a favorite in not just rosacea treatment but also all new skincare.
It gives the skin barrier an incredible amount of moisture without being too oily or clogging pores, it’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and burning, and it’s anti-bacterial properties can improve acne caused from rosacea.
