Have you been looking for the best natural treatment for rosacea?

If you answered yes, then keep reading. Below are easy, simple and PROVEN things you can do every day that will help reduce your rosacea naturally.

As a Rosacea patient you will know that it is very difficult to treat this condition with conventional medicine as the available options are not satisfactory. Long-term antibiotics can affect your immune system, and laser and light therapy are expensive and not fully effective. Steroid treatment can cause dependence and is NOT recommended.

There has been more success with natural treatment for rosacea when followed correctly, as it is not plagued with unpleasant side effects that are harmful to the body.

Rosacea in most people is characterized by flare-ups that come and go. These flare-ups or aggravated rosacea are caused by certain “triggers”

The most effective start to a natural treatment is to LIMIT and avoid these triggers.

So before you know what to limit, you need to figure out what causes your breakouts. Keep a journal that records what you have eaten or done that day and how your rosacea is doing. After a few weeks, you will see patterns appear and be able to identify what is causing your rosacea to get worse.

Rosacea triggers are different for different people. This is because everyone is built differently.

There are some triggers that are more common in people with rosacea. You can search for them and see if they are your triggers. If so, there are some tips below that you can follow to avoid them.

#1 Natural treatment or Rosacea

Reducing YOUR triggers


Sun exposure, hot weather, humidity, cold, and wind have been identified as triggers for flare-ups in some rosacea sufferers.

Here are some coping strategies you can use if this affects you.

  1. Always protect your face from the sun: wear a hat and sunscreen. The higher the SPF, the better, but at least use 15. And use it year-round. Since sunscreen can also irritate the skin, it is best to use one for children or those found at the natural health store. It is also advisable to avoid the midday sun when it is most intense (from 10 am to 2 pm). If you are exposed to heat, be sure to keep your body temperature as low as possible by drinking ice water and staying in shady places with fans or air conditioning.
  2. Another great idea is to get a handheld fan that you can direct at your face.
  3. In the cold you can protect your face by covering it with a scarf and a hat.


Stress and stressful situations are a very common reason for outbreaks. The good thing about this is that if you recognize that this is one of your triggers, you can use stress management to reduce your rosacea like

  1. Eat healthy and exercise moderately. When your body is fitter, it’s easier to deal with stress. So give your body the nutrients it needs.
  2. Get a good night’s sleep for at least 7-8 hours. When you’re sleep deprived, your body releases stress hormones that make you feel stressed over even minor things.
  3. Meditate if you can. Learn to quiet your mind so that your body can repair and rejuvenate. In these days where noise is everywhere, your mind is never at peace. In fact, most people in the modern world feel uncomfortable when there is silence and look for ways (TV, radio, telephone, etc.) to fill it. This never allows the mind to settle down and relax. It is in these quiet times that your mind is rejuvenated and repaired. This used to happen when we were asleep, but now that there are sounds everywhere, the brain is processing all these sounds and not allowing you to be as relaxed as possible. If you are serious about natural rosacea treatment, you will be serious about it.
  4. Use this visualization technique: Sit in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed and think of a very relaxing moment or scene that you remember. If you don’t have one then make one. Think about this and imagine that you are in the scene feeling its peace and tranquility.
  5. Say the word “calm” and “serenity” throughout the day to allow the feeling of these words to wash over you. Your mind will think about the meaning of these words and give you these feelings.
  6. When you find yourself in times of stress or situations where staying relaxed isn’t possible, take a deep breath and count to 10. Realize that you’ve probably been through worse and survived. Therefore, you will survive again.

working out

Now this is quite a paradox. As everyone says, exercise is great for the body and health. Yes it is, but when you overdo it or do it with enough intensity, it can create lactic acid in the body and also heat up your face.

The good news is that you can reduce acid and irritation by controlling your exercise.

  1. Exercise when it’s cooler during the day (so early morning or early evening are good)
  2. Exercise in shorter intervals more often throughout the day. It has been found that 2 fifteen minute workouts are as good as one half hour workout.
  3. If you are exercising indoors, put in a fan or open the window to cool the room.
  4. Keep a damp towel or water spray so you can keep refreshing your face and neck.
  5. Choose low-intensity exercises like walking or swimming and water aerobics as long as the chlorine doesn’t irritate your skin.
  6. Drink cold water to keep your body temperature down by drinking cold water and chewing on ice chips

Certain foods and drinks

Certain foods have been reported by people who have rosacea to cause irritation and aggravated breakouts. Check if these are your triggers…

  1. Tea, coffee and steaming drinks: if you must drink them, drink them at a lower temperature and less often. Coffee also causes stress and dehydration in the body, both of which are very bad for people with
  2. Alcohol: try to reduce or eliminate it completely.
  3. Foods that are high in histamine or that cause your body to produce histamine. Histamine causes an allergic reaction that affects the face and eyes, so for rosacea sufferers, this can be a big problem. This doesn’t mean you should avoid these foods forever, just until your body balances out and can handle a little extra stress. Here is the list

Histamine-rich foods:

• Alcoholic beverages, especially beer and wine.

• Anchovies

• Lawyers

• Cheeses, especially aged or fermented, such as Parmesan, blue and Roquefort.

• Cider and homemade root beer.

• Dried fruits such as apricots, dates, plums, figs, and raisins (you may be able to eat these fruits without a reaction if you wash them well).

• Eggplant

• Fermented foods, such as pickled or smoked meats, sauerkraut, etc.

• Mackerel

• Mushrooms

• Processed meats: sausages, hot dogs, salami, etc.

• Sardines

• Smoked fish: herring, sardines, etc.

• Sour cream, sour milk, buttermilk, yogurt, especially if not fresh.

Foods that release histamine:
