Redness in the face can come from many different sources such as sensitive skin, sun exposure, environmental agents that irritate your skin, allergies to a product, rosacea and even foods. If you have ever turned red after eating a specific food, you should immediately eliminate it. Foods to cut out entirely until the redness stops are: alcohol, spicy foods, sugar and caffeine. Here's a little do it yourself chamomile face wash remedy to help soothe redness as well as two of my favorite gentle calming cremes.
- Steep chamomile tea in hot water for ten minutes.
- Let it cool and then use it as a face wash twice a day for two days.
- Refrigerate the tea in between washings
