How to Reduce Rosacea

Like most skin conditions, rosacea is complex as the underlying factors which cause it are believed to involve: genetic disposition, digestive health, hormonal imbalance, vitamin b deficiency and even bacteria and parasites in the gut.

Could a heathy gut reduce rosacea symptoms?

How To Reduce Rosacea

Heard of the demodex mite?  Research indicates that rosacea may be triggered by an allergic reaction to the bacteria that live on the demodex mites on your skin. These mites inhabit everyone’s skin to some degree but appear more in those who suffer with rosacea. Add to that, people with rosacea are believed to have lower levels of stomach acid and pancreatic enzymes and this contributes to having poor digestive health and a reduced immune system too.

That is why working on the gut to target bacterial issues could provide some much welcome relief to rosacea sufferers.  Make sure you include the following in your diet to improve gut health:

  • Zinc
  • B vitamins – especially Vitamin B2
  • Probiotics
  • Foods high in Omega-3
  • Cook with coconut oil, ghee or butter instead of vegetable oils

Also, you may be dairy or gluten intolerant as well as salycilate and histamine intolerant so you will need to eat foods low in histamines.  Foods low in histamines include:

  • lean cooked meat and poultry
  • fresh fish
  • eggs
  • gluten-free grains such as rice and quinoa
  • pure peanut butter
  • fresh fruits – mango, pear, watermelon, apple, kiwi, cantaloupe, grapes
  • fresh vegetables (except tomatoes, spinach, avocado, and eggplant)

Continue to impede your rosacea triggers by avoiding hot showers, sauna’s and spa’s to control the spread of bacteria. Wash you make-up brushed regularly and change your pillow cases often. Only use fragrance-free, chemical-free, pH balanced skin care with anti-inflammatory properties such as aloe vera.

Researchers continue the search for new treatments for how to reduce rosacea, the tips we suggest here, may help alleviate your rosacea symptoms.
