Getting rosacea under control can be a very up-hill battle of will verses nature.
Dampen a clean, soapless washcloth with warm water. Add two teaspoons of sea slat to the washcloth and lay on affected area for 5 minutes.
Raw honey has a natural antibacterial property. Was face and neck with cool water then gently rub honey on the affected area and rinse with cool water.

I Citizen has put together a helpful list of informal dresses and formal gowns for your big day. Take a look at some suits for the groom on I Citizen's men's wear suggestions.
Ivory organza ballerina length dress
This is a really lovely dress, which would be great for an outdoor ceremony. Think about tying in the ribbon color around the dress's waist to your flowers and bridesmaid's dresses. This is a dress you'll love to look back on in photos because of it's classic and simple style. No Tiaras need apply.
Tea Length Wedding Dress
This is a great dress with a little modesty and a lot of style. Think about wearing this slightly 1950's style tea elgnth dress with a braided up-do and soft pink lips and long lashes. The dress has a really lovely, slightly transparent layer on the shoulders and upper chest with a full, wide skirt that will look great on the dance floor, swirling around with your new husband.
The Gretel is a really sweet dress for the Audrey fan. It's a classic, informal look that you could pair with soft waves in your hair and stud earrings with a small veil cascading down the back.
Ella 1940's Inspired Bridal Gown
The Ella is a lovely, more formal gown with a timeless feel yet maintains a nod to '40's and '30's style. The fine lace details on the arms give this gown a soft and flattering look.
The Arlene is a fun, slightly '60's feeling dress for a casual wedding party. This dress also makes a sweet maternity gown if given a bit of extra length in the front. Think about a lovely orange blossom headband around a simple bun.
Barbara------vintage inspired lace gown
The Barbara gown is lovely and feminine with a great lace top and soft, flowing bottom. Think about soft curls for a hair style with a small, ivory flower in your hair.
