A healthy diet is vital for healthy skin. Acne Rosacea and your diet are closely linked. Facial flushing is a characteristic feature of Acne Rosacea, which can be treated with vaso-constrictors like cherries, blackberries, and blueberries. Strictly following a rosacea diet can reduce rosacea flare-ups.
Here are some tips to help you keep your skin clear if you have rosacea:
Foods to avoid:
- Olive oil is a good Acne Rosacea diet supplement
- Alkaline water with pH 7.2 to 7.8 is a good acid neutralizer and can be included in a diet for Rosacea. Drinking at least 10 to 12 glasses of iced alkaline water per day is useful as a part of the natural rosacea diet
- Omega 3 fish and fish oil supplements should be added to the Rosacea diet
- Cooked foods should be consumed more than raw ones because they are easier to digest
- Seaweed is good to include in a natural rosacea diet
- A natural rosacea diet may include whole grains, seeds, nuts, fresh fruits, and vegetables
- Aloe Vera should be added to the Acne Rosacea diet due to its anti-inflammatory properties
- Licorice is another common kitchen herb, which can be used in a rosacea diet
- Chicken and fish should replace red meat in a diet for rosacea
- An important caution: Alcohol should not be consumed if you have Rosacea
- Though the Acne Rosacea diet should ideally be free from tea, coffee, and other caffeinated drinks, these beverages can be consumed iced to prevent vasodilation
- A diet for rosacea must be free of foods high in sugar like oranges, pineapple, mango, and papaya
- Similarly, high calorie carbohydrates like pasta, bread, and fats must be avoided when following an Acne Rosacea diet.
- Vinegar based products, soy sauce, tomatoes, and onions must not be consumed when following a rosacea diet
- Chocolate, lobster, prawns, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and food colors can trigger rosacea. A rosacea natural diet should therefore be free from these
- Citrus fruits and juices, bananas, red plum, figs, cheese, and raisins should be eliminated from the diet.
- Hot, spicy, fried foods can worsen symptoms
