In order to make a face cream for rosacea, you will need: lady’s mantle infusion (tautens skin, highlights discolourations and relieves inflammations), golden-saxifrage infusion (has antibacterial and anti-allergic working as well as improves condition of blood vessels), tea oil (anti-fungus and antibacterial working), oil macerate of chlorophytes (moisturises) and E vitamin (smooths and rejuvenates skin). All the above-mentioned ingredients are easily accessible in a pharmacy, on the Internet or even these can be found in a kitchen.
When you have collected all the substances, you can prepare two phases. Oil phase (30%) is composed of: macerate, green tea extract, emulsifier (comprising around 2% of the oil phase). Water phase (70%) in turn can be characterized by lady’s mantle and golden-saxifrage infusion. When it comes to additive phase, it is composed out of a few drops of E vitamin and green tea extract.
The process of making you own face cream for rosacea is extremely easy. Macerate, green tea extract and emulsifier have to be melted in a water bath having 60°C.

The moment the cream cools down, add E vitamin. How does this face cram work? Undoubtedly, it helps with fighting against rosacea, closes broken capillaries, eliminates blackheads as well as works anti-inflammatory and relieving. The cream has gentle texture and is absorbed quickly.
