Only with a few tricks and good habits, it's possible to hide these pink spots on your skin. Let's see!
Rosacea is a skin disorder that manifests as reddish spots on the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Consumption of certain drinks or foods, changes in weather, prolonged exposure to the sun, or the use of cosmetics, dilate the blood vessels and this causes the color change. If you are one of those who suffer from these annoying pink spots, it's time to stop feeling uncomfortable. With these homemade tricks, you can hide rosacea easily.
1. Pre-makeup facial cleansing
The first step before putting on makeup is to properly clean the skin. You should start by using a gel or milk that does not contain soap, fat, or perfume, rinse with plenty of warm water (never hot) and dry very gently. Avoid toners and astringents, as being made with alcohol can further damage your skin. Next, apply the topical rosacea medication that you use regularly and let it dry for half an hour. Then apply a moisturizer and sunscreen if necessary, and you're ready to start putting on your makeup.
2. Use a primer
Choose a hypoallergenic primer that protects the skin from cosmetics and then a green color concealer to cover the reddish tone of the skin. The product you choose should not be too dense and should be easy to blend so as not to further irritate you when you apply it. It is highly recommended to use a sponge.
3. Choose lightweight foundations
To achieve the uniform look, apply a foundation normally but make sure it's light, hydrating, and oil-free. To finish, seal your makeup with powder using a soft brush. The blush will not be necessary as your complexion will be very colored.
4. Choose neutral eyeshadow colors
When choosing eyeshadows and pencils, make sure they are neutral colors since they contain less pigment, they will be less irritating. Also, avoid red tones in the mouth to avoid intensifying the appearance of redness on the skin.
It's always important to protect your skin from the cold with highly hydrating cosmetics. The ideal is to use products with active ingredients that strengthen the structure of the blood capillaries. Hydrate and nourish your skin as much as you can.
6. Foods with anti-inflammatory properties
Another way to combat rosacea is by using natural herbs with anti-inflammatory properties and antimicrobial plants that kill the microorganisms that cause this disorder.
Bonus track: Healthy eating
It's essential to follow the correct diet. Vitamins B and C, for example, reduce the effects of rosacea and improve the condition of the skin; and fruits and vegetables keep the body clean and free of toxins. It's also important to avoid foods with a lot of spices, whole grains, fermented cheeses, hot or alcoholic beverages, and coffee.
