Doctors are still learning about what causes rosacea and how to eliminate this painful and embarrassing chronic skin condition. Although medications and other treatments can help in some cases, many people with rosacea have discovered a relationship between rosacea and foods.

For many people with rosacea, their skin redness and eruptions are often caused by triggers such as stress, chemical exposure, abrupt changes of weather, or certain foods.

Although this varies quite a bit from person to person, some of the foods that cause rosacea outbreaks include:

  • Foods that contain artificial colorings, flavorings, sweeteners and preservatives
  • Pickled, fermented, marinated or smoked foods
  • Hot, spicy foods
  • Hot beverages
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Caffeine which is in coffee, tea, cola, and chocolate
  • Cheese and dairy products
  • Red meat
  • Sugar

Well, I know that list is a little daunting, as it includes MOST modern convenience foods, and many of the sauces and seasonings that are commonly used to flavor food.

BUT the good news is, that there are many wonderful, healthy foods to eat for rosacea that will have the effect of not only calming down your rosacea outbreaks, but also preventing future outbreaks and increasing your overall health.

If you find it overwhelming to make a big change in your diet all at once, you can do it gradually. When I transitioned to a gluten free diet, I did it in stages over a period of a few weeks. That was easier and gave me time to develop NEW healthy food habits.
