Rosacea, a condition characterised by redness and bumps along the cheeks, chin and nose, is often treated using oral antibiotics and harsh sulphur creams. If you are looking for a more natural option, chrysanthellum indicum has been shown to be effective in reducing the signs of rosacea.

Things you need
- Chrysanthellum indicum cream
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Harsh cleansing can make redness worse. Clean off all traces of dirt, oil and cleanser.
Apply a thin layer of cream containing chrysanthellum indicum. Phytomer Douceur Marine Velvety Soothing Cream is a good one to try. As an alternative, you can mix your own by adding one teaspoon of chrysanthellum indicum extract with an 236ml bottle of moisturiser. Allow the moisturiser to dry thoroughly.
Apply a thick coat of sunscreen if applying the chrysanthellum indicum in the morning. If applying at night, finish with an overnight cream.
Tips and warnings
- Remember to avoid rosacea triggers like excessive sun exposure, alcohol and spicy foods.
- Apply chrysanthellum indicum twice daily for three to four weeks for best results.
- Consult with your doctor if your rosacea does not improve or gets worse.
