Rosacea is a chronic skin condition, which mostly affects women between the ages of 30 and 50. It is characterized by redness in the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead.
The main triggers for rosacea are:
Hot baths, showers, saunas
There are various natural therapies that can help relieve rosacea’s redness and burning. Mild cases of rosacea will disappear with continued treatment. Rosacea sufferers must abstain from foods containing trans-fats like corn, gluten, peanuts etc which can cause allergies. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, certain types of fish like salmon, sardines etc are helpful in fighting this condition. You must also eat nuts like almonds, green leafy vegetables that contain B vitamins etc. Plenty of fruits and vegetables can also be consumed that will help strengthen the arteries and veins and prevent them from bloating. Fruits filled with antioxidants such as berries, grape fruit, cherries etc must be eaten regularly to get better relief.
You should also ensure that the digestive system is functioning properly otherwise the important nutrients may not get fully absorbed. As the skin and the gut have an active role to play in flushing out toxins both must work properly to prevent skin disorders like eczema, acne, psoriasis, and rosacea. You can support your digestion with a simple supplement routine of digestive enzymes. You can take about 250-750 mg of pancreatic or vegetarian enzymes just before every meal. This will help relieving the inflammation to a certain extent.
You can also try finely ground oatmeal which can help cleanse, moisturize, soothe and also as an anti-inflammatory. You must wash your face with lukewarm water frequently everyday. You can use a mineral based make up if you wish. You must try and avoid body care products that contain irritating ingredients or chemicals such as alcohol, menthol, witch hazel, peppermint, and eucalyptus oil. As the barrier layer of the facial skin has been impaired in rosacea sufferers care must be taken to keep the skin surface absolutely clean. Oatmeal’s protein binds to the skin surface creating a barrier which allows the skin to prevent invading toxins. It also helps to dehydrate the skin. Those suffering from this skin condition should also refrain from eating oily and fatty foodstuffs as that will aggravate the condition.
