Rosacea

Updated: Oct 10, 2023


Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin disorder characterized by redness on the face and neck, and it can range from a subtle rash to deeper redness.

There are four different types

  1. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels.

  2. Papulopustular rosacea: acne-like breakouts and redness.

  3. Phymatous rosacea: thickened skin and irregular surface nodularity's.

  4. Ocular rosacea: The eyes are affected by redness, dryness, and irritation.

To reduce inflammation:

Polyphenols in caffeinated coffee and omega-3 fatty acids.

Azulene (derived from the chamomile plant), Arnica and Vitamin C can also be beneficial as they strengthen capillaries, reducing noticeable redness when ingested or applied topically.

Nutritional deficiencies in vitamin B6, selenium, magnesium, and B12 can cause blood vessel dilation, especially on the cheeks and nose.

Probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, or zinc may benefit some people with rosacea.

Check with a healthcare professional before taking any supplements.

Avoid skincare ingredients that can worsen the symptoms of rosacea: urea, witch hazel, menthol, camphor, eucalyptus oil, Sodium laurel sulphate (often found in shampoos and toothpaste), peppermint, lactic acid (milk) and glycolic acid.

Here are some common triggers that you can look out for:

Keep a food diary and track your symptoms to identify foods to avoid.

  1. Spicy foods: Hot peppers, chilli powder, and other spicy seasonings can cause flushing and inflammation, worsening rosacea symptoms.

  2. Alcohol: All types of alcohol, including beer, wine, and hard liquor, can cause blood vessels to dilate, leading to redness and flushing.

  3. Dairy: Some people with Rosacea find that dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt can trigger their symptoms.

  4. Histamine-containing foods: Foods high in histamine, such as fermented foods, cured meats, and aged cheeses, can cause flushing and inflammation.

  5. Medications such as steroids and niacin may cause rosacea flare-ups.

  6. Citrus fruits: Oranges, lemons, limes, and other citrus fruits contain acids that irritate the skin and worsen rosacea symptoms.

  7. Heavy exercise triggers rosacea symptoms. Sip ice water and splash cool water on the face.

  8. Protect your skin from the sun: Sun exposure can worsen rosacea symptoms, so wearing sunscreen and protective clothing is essential.

  9. Avoid harsh scrubs and exfoliants.

10. Refined grains increase inflammation. They are quickly broken down into glucose and absorbed into the bloodstream. A rapid increase in blood sugar levels leads to inflammation and oxidative stress.

11. Avoid hot baths and showers: Hot water can cause flushing and inflammation, so it's best to use lukewarm water instead.

12. Stress can trigger rosacea flare-ups, so it's crucial to find ways to

manage stress, such as through exercise, meditation, or therapy.

13. Smoking can worsen rosacea symptoms and increase the risk of

developing the condition.


Rosacea is a manageable disorder caused by genetics, immune system dysfunction, and environmental triggers.

Seek professional advice from a dermatologist or esthetician.

Estheticians can help manage this condition using various methods, including Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments and regular skincare and facials.

Dermatologists can help identify triggers, prescribe medications, and recommend skincare products to help manage your symptoms. They use harsher methods that are unkind to the skin.
