"Rosacea is a chronic disorder of the facial skin characterized by flare-ups and remissions. It typically begins after age 30 as a flushing or redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go. As the disorder Progresses, the redness becomes more persistent and small dilated blood vessels may appear (telangectasia). Without treatment, papules and pustules often develop and in advanced cases, the nose may become swollen from excess tissue" (National Rosacea Society).
Until now, patients visiting clinics hoping to find a solution, were prescribed topical antibiotics, but were often disappointed with the results, unable to find something that would work without the side effects and the dependence to antibiotics.

Changing your life habits can also decrease the intensity of your symptoms and help you avoid severe flare ups. Each and every risk factor may not in fact induce these symptoms, and additionally, they could of course vary from individual to individual. However, here are the main actions to avoid in order to decrease the main symptoms:
The Centre de beauté Posana always promotes gentle approaches and treatments for skin healing, especially when it comes to rosacea, since it increases skin sensitivity. In addition to the recommendations stated above, you can also turn to plants, supplements and natural ingredients to treat skin redness and flare ups related to rosacea. These solutions are all great additions to Physiodermie's protocol and target a very precise goal: decreasing inflammation levels throughout the body, both internally and externally.
Supplementing with 100mg of zinc sulfate three times a day could be a viable rosacea treatment, according to this study. Furthermore, it is considered safe and free of significant side effects.
Aloe vera gel has soothing, hydrating and regenerative properties on human skin. In addition to treating its surface, it is capable of detoxifying its deepest layers and heal it thoroughly. Rosacea sufferers are often dealing with dry, flaky and sensitive skin, so this plant is advised to treat the irritation, as well as acne breakouts. Its anti-inflammatory properties are substantial. It is recommended to purchase the whole pleat instead of using over the counter aloe vera gel, since they contain preservatives that could further aggravate rosacea.
Melilotus officinalis, also known as "melilotus" or "sweet clover" was originally found in Eurasia. Now widely available, it is mainly used as an anti-oedematous and a tonic agent to treat venous circulatory issues. Since its extract is found in Physiodermie's Anti-Redness Emulsion, it could be useful to consume it in infusions or as a supplement to get its benefits internally.
Crataegus laevigata, commonly called "hawthorn" or "thornapple", is a thorny shrub that is 3 to 4 meters tall. Its flowers have tonic and astringent properties that can activate microcirculation and attenuate skin redness. Also present in Physiodermie's Anti-Redness Emulsion, it aids in preserving collagen formation and prevents saggy skins and signs of aging. It is also edible and accelerates blood circulation. Just like melitotus, you can consume it in infusions or in supplement form to treat rosacea from the inside out.
All of these solutions cannot be truly efficient if your life habits are healthy, and diet plays a huge role in the healing process. You should avoid processed foods at all costs, as well as refined sugars, because they induce a lot of inflammation in the body. You could try to implement the anti-inflammatory diet instead, favoring foods like curcuma, blueberries, ginger, garlic, salmon and leafy greens.
