So what is the best rosacea treatment? There are literally hundreds of theories about what works best for the treatment of rosacea, but the truth is each rosacea remedy works more or less effectively depending on the person. What works incredibly well for you might not even help others!

The basic attack plan of avoiding certain foods, avoiding caffeine, avoiding intense heat and cold, all seem to have an effect for all rosacea sufferers. But other specialized approaches (which are often the most effective) only work really well for some people.

So you have to simply try a few of them until you find something that works for you!

There are many pharmaceutical products for the treatment of rosacea, but this article is going to look at some of the natural and organic approaches that have worked well for some people with rosacea.

The first one is Cucumber. This vegetable actually has fantastic healing properties which have been known by herbalists for many thousands of years, but in the 21st century many people don’t even know how effective it can be.

Apart from the obvious way of using cucumbers (eating them!), you can create face creams from cucumbers or simply use cucumber slices.

Cucumber is actually packed full of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins C, Vitamin E (great for skin) and minerals potassium, magnesium and silica. You might have heard of people using slices on swollen ad puffy eyes, and that is the reason.

The easiest way to use cucumber to treat rosacea is to use it like most women do – place slices on your eyes. It’s great for relieving the inflammation and irritation from ocular rosacea.

You can make a face cream by blending half a cucumber with 5 table spoons of natural yoghurt. Blend them together and either and use them on your face for 15 minutes then wash off.

You can also blend cucmber with mud to make a mud mask! Blend a cucumber, mud, cream, honey and olive oil to make the mud pack. Leave it on for 10 minutes then wash off. This is a really natural way to remedy your rosacea.

Green tea is another natural solution that many people have claimed is effective. People regularly drink it because of the anti-oxidants and other health benefits, but it’s great for rosacea as well. Green tea is actually an anti-inflammatory, so it helps a great deal with rosacea.

No need to pull out the blender for this one, simply drink 2-3 cups of green tea per day and you will probably see a reduction in the inflammation from your rosacea.

Oatmeal is the final natural rosacea remedy and according to many, the most effective. You can buy moisturizer with oatmeal in it from most shops and it has great effect on rosacea as an anti-itching cream. When rosacea becomes inflamed and itches, sufferers find it hard to resist scratching their face. Scratching of course irritates the rosacea further and leads to more problems. Using a quality organic oatmeal moisturizer can help with this.

Oatmeal also contains minerals and proteins which help nourish and heal rosacea affected skin. It’s a great protective barrier from the sun and harsh weather, so it has numerous benefits and should be part of every rosacea sufferers solution to rosacea.

So give those three organic solutions a try – many rosacea afflicted people have said they work very well!

Unfortunately there isn’t a cure for rosacea yet, and rosacea sufferers need to rely on a mixture of dietary measures, creams, drugs, moisturizers and behavior modification to stop rosacea from flaring up. But what exactly is a rosacea diet?

A rosacea diet is one that voids certain foods and embraces others to reduce the frequency of rosacea flareups. With some careful planning of your diet it’s actually very easy to modify what you eat and drink and see a noticeable change in the quality of your skin.

Rosacea affects an estimated 15 million people in the world, so you are not alone! There are a number of support forums (including the one on this website) so if you have any questions on the material below, feel free to ask. Chances are someone has already had the same question previously.

No one actually knows what causes rosacea but some theories include bacteria, stomach problems or a defect in the tissue on the face. Despite this, by following some simple steps you can make your rosacea disappear.

One of the keys in a rosacea diet is the use of water and alkaline drinks. You should try to drink 6-8 glasses of water per day, which not only keeps you feeling fresh and hydrated, but is known to reduce the severity of rosacea. An additional benefit is that you will see your eyes looking clearer and brighter as well as your stomach and digestive system feeling better. Some specialists have said that alkaline drinks such as carrot juice, spinach and so on can help lower the acidity in your body, adding to overall health and helping combat rosacea.

There are some foods that you should avoid. Number 1 in those is spicy foods! Anything with lots of chilli, spices and hot sauce should be avoided as rosacea sufferers over the years have found a link between those kinds of foods and rosacea episodes. If you love spicy foods you can use a process of elimination to see if you really need them. Follow all of the rosacea diet tips in this article, until your flareups reduce, then re-introduce spicy food and see if it is a trigger for you.

Unfortunately for people who like a tipple, alcohol is known to be a cause for rosacea flareups. You can still enjoy the occaisional drink, but avoid overdoing it, any more than 4 drinks and you are at risk of bringing on a rosacea flareup.

The next part of the rosacea diet is tricky because it involves proteins in general. Some people have noted that dairy food, meat, and eggs are capable of causing a flareup. It is one reason why some rosacea sufferers become vegetarians. Once they remove a few proteins or lower the intake of some proteins they have seen an improvement so went vegetarian. To test this, it is recommended that you try a month of very low intake of meat, dairy and eggs and see if a noticeable change occurs.

Rosacea sufferers have reported that the protein issue is not as important as the previous three (lots of water, avoid spicy food, avoid alcohol). So many people with rosacea enjoy a moderate level of meat/dairy/eggs in their diet but have cured their rosacea with lots of water, no spicy food and low or no alcohol in their diet.

The key is to be very analytical about it. Keep a journal and jot down your diet and the frequency of outbreaks to see if a causation can be spotted. With some of these major irritants it is best to get off them completely for a month and see what effect it has on your skin, then reintroduce slowly to see what happens. Also the water rule always applies! Get drinking, it will help your rosacea and also improve your overall health.
