Q. I’ve had rosacea for a long time, and I’ve tried lots of therapies. My dermatologist wanted to put me on Accutane but no way was I going there.
I started on the intensive light therapy then and did that for about a year. It’s very expensive and not super effective, but better than doing nothing.
I have been using Epsom salts for the last two weeks and the results are amazing! Since the first day the redness went away, the pores got smaller and the oiliness disappeared. My skin is smooth and soft.
I just put about 1/4 cup Epsom salts in some warm water. I use a sponge to put it on my face and chest in the shower. After a couple of minutes I’m done.
A. Thanks for this interesting suggestion. Epsom salts contain magnesium sulfate. We could find no research to support this approach, but it seems inexpensive and low risk.
