Recipe for Shampoo and Conditioner

I am sorry that I have been MIA. I shall blame college. I decided to start a “Makers Club” with a friend of mine. This club is rad. We have 3D printers and a VR machine. I have also been researching rosacea deeply. This research is using peer reviewed research and the info I have found is eye opening. Enough of about my life. I have been getting a lot of special requests to post the recipe I use for shampoo and conditioner.

I stopped using regular shampoo and conditioner around the time frame I was healing my face. At the time, I didn’t know that stopping the use of commercial products was going to help my skin heal. Instead, I just wanted to have a natural product on my head that wasn’t highly expensive. My friend who hooked me up with some essential oils gave me the recipe I am giving you soon. It is funny how life works.

I did stop using my shampoo and conditioner once. I had a sulfate free conditioner with great ingredients in it, or so I thought. After I used the product my skin which has been maintained beautifully, started a fire on my face and then the bumps started to appear along the hair line of my cheeks. I had a flare-up from this product that I used. After, I came to this knowledge I started to use the homemade products instead. Who knew that even our shampoo and conditioner can cause our face to flare-up. Geez.

Okay, I will stop blabbing and give you the amazing recipe.

Shampoo and Conditioner Recipe:

20161112_182929

Shampoo:
1/3 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of tea tree castile oil soap
4 drops of tea tree oil
1 1/2 two 2 cups of filtered water

Shake every use. I use tea tree eo in the shampoo because I like the smell and it helps with dandruff.

Conditioner:
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 cups filter water
4 drops of patchouli eo

Shake every use. I use patchouli because I like the smell and it helps make  dandruff disappear.

 

I hope you found this helpful and that it helps to heal your rosacea. I love these products. I will use the conditioner to clean around the house and even to wash my body when I run out of castile soap. I also reused honey bottles. I love honey. Here’s to having a great face day!

3 Amazing Tips That Help With The Rosacea Flush

Rosacea, Rosacea why do you cause my face to heat up? We have all been there. A professor calls one you to answer a question. You have a hot date and everything is perfect until 10 minutes prior to the date, when your face betrays you and starts to the rosacea flush. This is the trouble our face gets us into. I have found a few ways to calm my face down when it is rosacea hot flushing. I will give you tips to help except the date flush, only because I haven’t mastered it yet. Where is the sad face emotioncon?

3 tips to help calm the rosacea flush after working out or running:

  1. I have found that splashing my face with cold water during my workout helps to calm my face. I used to splash water on my face constantly for the first few months, now I rarely have to do this step at all. I just recently did because it was a hot humid day and of course I had to run four miles in the pure sun.20160705_124050
  2. A cold piece of ice sliding on your face or rolling and ice roller on your face is an instant cool down. At first I was using ice, until I was tired of having to stand over the sink as the ice melted on my face. I purchased an ice roller off of ebay. It has been the best investment for hot face days. I just grab it out of the freezer and start to roll it on my face. The bonus about this product is that it can be used on sore muscles as well. BONUS!20160705_124145 (1)
  3. This is my absolute favorite way to cool down my rosacea flushing face. I slather on some greek yogurt and let it sit for about 7 to 10 minutes. This is an instant cool down as well as an instant healing agent for your face. There are so my probiotics that keep your skin healthy and beautiful. Rosacea needs those probiotics instead of those antibiotics. Warning: don’t let this face mask fully dry on your face. It will cause redness of the skin. The mask won’t cause harm but there will be a red spot or two if left to long.20160705_124659

Those are my three amazing tips for cooling off your face from exercising or running. I hope these work for you so that you can work out/exercise. I know that this can be a trigger for some rosacea suffers but not exercising can be worse for your body in the long run.

Bonus Tip: How I keep my face cool in class. I bring a hand held fan with me to class. I also will have a cold drink with me as well. My class mates have seen me place this cold drink’s body on my face. They just don’t understand how good it feels. Oh that darn rosacea flush.

My Rosacea Skin Care Routine Might Make You Work for it.

IMG_7004

My rosacea skincare routine has been a topic of conversation on my instagram. I think it is about time I list what I use on my face, besides what I eat. Years ago when I was diagnosed with rosacea I researched what skin routine would be best, since my current one seemed to be making my rosacea worse or just hindering the healing process.

There are products what should be avoided that will cause the rosacea skin to dry up. Those items are: Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Propylene glycol, Fragrances, Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptus oil, and Peppermint oil.  This can all be found here:  Skin Care.

I was right. My current skin care routine had Witch Hazel and Eucalyptus oil in it. I also felt that my moisturizer which was jojoba oil with lavender and tea tree essential oils was also hindering my healing process of my face.

Upon further research, I was able to find a whole new skincare routine. This routine has changed over time due to the hiking up of prices for these products. I then made the decision to make these products handmade instead of buying them from a company.

I know you don’t want to make your own products.

This is what works for me. (I am also giving you my recipes)

I wash my face with Lady Rosacea’s Foaming Facial Wash. Then I use Lady Rosacea’s Clear Skin Facial Serum. Once that is applied, I put the Bee Folks Tranquil Lavender Hand Cream on my eye area only. I swear that this works beautiful wonders for my eyes. They are no longer dry and I have yet to have a swollen eyelid. I also look far younger or maybe that is due to the lack of sugar I eat. After the application of Bee Folks I rub in Lady Rosacea’s Spot Treatment. Once my face is dry, I apply The Wonder Seed’s Facial Cream on my skin. One should never go without moisture unless they want to see wrinkles and dry flaky skin.

Two products I purchase. These products are the best on the market with really great ingredients. You skin will thank you after using them. The Wonder Seed is on instagram and they are always willing to comment on a photo of their product. I have asked questions of them to and they have responded quickly. I am waiting on their zinc sun block.

I hope you have found this post helpful. I know a lot of you are wondering what I use. I know Rodan and Fields reps are probably wondering to, since they love to offer their high priced skin care routine to me. I just don’t like chancing my skin to some high priced routine. No Thank you!

Lady Rosacea’s Foaming Facial Wash Recipe:

1/3 cup of Dr. Bronner’s Liquid castile soap (use tea tree, lavender, or unscented)

1/3 cup of water

1/3 cup of raw honey (this is option and will not make this a foaming wash either)

2 tablespoons of coconut oil (or rose hip oil or hemp seed oil)

5 drops of helichrysum essential oil

3 drops of lavender essential oil

3 drops of frankincense essential oil

7 drops of turmeric essential oil

10 to 12 drops of tea tree essential oil

Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5

Day 3:

Day 3 was a busy day filled with painting kiddos faces to setting up my studio for bands to play in. Some of the kiddos requests were typical of the boy and girl stereotypes, but there was this little lady who’s request brightened my soul. She wanted a batman mask. Oh be still my beating heart. If you don’t know this yet, now you do, I love batman. I also love Agatha Clay.

Breakfast and lunch was the Spiced Apple Pie Green Smoothie and dinner was with a friend. The dinner had one of Rosacea’s triggers in it. I asked for Romaine, instead they gave me Spinach. Spinach is one of those foods that is the Catwoman of the KRBED. It is good and bad. It is on the known triggers list so during the Elimination diet stay far away from it. I ate it because, I prefer spinach and it is not my trigger food. If you are doing this diet please use Romaine lettuce or other lettuces just don’t eat the spinach until you know for sure that this is not one of your triggers.

Faux Wine Recipe

I know that some suffers of rosacea, such as myself, quit drinking wine, liquor, and beer. I had to personally because it is the worst triggers on my list. If I have a drink, my face then breaks out into type 2 rosacea. Then it takes about a week or so to heal my skin from this trigger.

Breaking myself from the habit of drinking was harder than I thought. At first I didn’t think I was addicted to drinking, since I only drank once or twice a week. I would only drink about two to four drinks a week. The consummation of those drinks was enough to make me yearn for a drink when I was quitting. It was hard to stop drinking for me. I couldn’t be around my friends when they drank. I couldn’t eat dinner with friends as they drank. I craved a drink.

The cravings ended after six months of not drinking. I have been sober ever since. I don’t crave it as much (unless I had a horrible day). I can be around my friends as they partake in drinking. I don’t miss it. I find that my body is healthier. My body feels clean. Another benefit, my face looks amazing. If I feel like I am about to fall off the wagon then I just remind myself of what my face looks like now and how it will look if I took a sip. That is my instant stopping point. It is just not worth it for me.

However through my fermentation journey, I have been introduced to a fruit based fermentation called Kvass. This Russian based  drink is probiotic and super good for your body. I can make Kvass taste like beer or wine. This is the best thing since I found bread without diary and sugar.

Lady Rosacea’s Kicking Rosacea in the Butt Elimination Diet Plan

Food.

942496_638391989508465_1486505630_n

Years ago I decided to start the Kicking Rosacea in the Butt Elimination Diet (KRBED). I basically researched all the known triggers for rosacea. Thanks to rosacea.org for having such a comprehensive list available. In the trigger lists there are some foods that needed to be defined further. These foods were the High Histamine foods and what Hot/Warm/Cool/Neutral were exactly.

One food on the list that I am still confused about is: Broad-leaf beans and pods.

Due to this confusion years ago and now, I have decided not to eat beans or pods (especially those tasty space pods) for the KRBED.

I am hoping the list that I made will help you decide what to add and subtract from the KRBED. I know that the first time I did KRBED, I ate bananas, eggplant, and spinach. They are all known triggers. Eggplant was by accident since I didn’t print off the rosacea trigger list. Banana I personally chose to keep, since I love to eat them. I thought that there was no way this could be my trigger. At least I thought right for my body.

Spinach on the other hand is a tricky food. It is a known Trigger. It is high in histamine. Spinach is considered a cool food and is anti-inflammatory. It is basically good and bad at the same time. Spinach is the Cat Women of vegetables. This is a decision that is made by you. I know, personally, on my second time partaking in this diet I have decided to not eat spinach (even if I know it is not a trigger).

It isn’t too hard to read the food list, but let me set down some guidelines. Column one that reads “Known Rosacea Triggers”, should be the big NO NO list. These are the foods you should take out of your diet. These are the key foods not to eat in the KRBED. Column 2, which reads “High Histamine Foods”, are all the foods that are high in histamines. These foods are on the do not eat list of the KRBED. Column three reads “Hot/Warm/Cool/Neutral Foods” is a list that shows you which foods are Hot (don’t eat), Warm (eat sparingly), Cool (eat as much as you can), and Neutral (have fun you can eat these too). Lastly Column four reads “Anti-Inflammatory Foods”, this is a list of foods that what inflame your face. You can eat most of these unless they are listed as a Hot or Histamine food or even if they are on the Rosacea Trigger list.

Are you confused yet?

I personally will be eating ginger, turmeric, black pepper (turmeric needs black pepper so that it can be absorbed into our bodys), onion, garlic, and cinnamon. They are all on the Warm food list but they are also Anti-Inflammation.  Since I believe, personally, that rosacea is basically inflammation of the face I rely on most of the anti-inflammatory food list. I also believe that if your guy is healthy so will your body and your face be happy.

For the most part Lady Rosacea’s KRBED do not eat list is:

Liver, Yogurt, Sour Cream, Cheese, Chocolate, Vanilla, Soy Sauce, Yeast Extract, Vinegar, Eggplant, Avocados, Spinach, Beans, Citrus Fruits, Tomaties, Red Plums, Raisins, Figs, Lima Beans, Peas, Spicy foods, Alcohol, Lobster, Meat Marinades, Pasta, Cured/Smoked Meats, Food colorings, Preservatives, NutraSweet, MSG, Artificial Sweeteners, Canned Foods, Ready Made Foods, Fermented Foods, Pickled foods, Some shellfish (I will be eating shrimp), Nuts, Papaya, Black Tea, Coffee, Energy Drinks, Licorice, Mate Tea, Green Tea, and Eggs.

This list would make most people cry, but instead think of your face healed and beautiful. I swear that after a week of the KRBED, I saw improvement in my skin. There was less redness and less bumps.

The diet can be accomplished in a month. After a month you can slowly add in the foods from the do not eat list. From there you can see if your face reacts to these foods. If they do, then that is your trigger food. One of my triggers is sunflower seeds. This food wasn’t on the list, but since I was able to heal my face the next time I ate sunflower seeds my face heated up and turned red. I knew from that reaction that was a trigger food.

You can do this. Why? If I can eat this diet twice, then you can do it once. I have faith in you. I have faith that you want clear skin. I have faith that you can have what you want by finding your triggers through the Lady Rosacea’s KRBED! You got this!
