Alkaline Diet for Rosacea? Does it Work?
I suffer from redness and blotchiness all around my cheeks and nose. It seems to come and go and gets worse some days more than others.
I also noticed that it seems worse during the middle of winter and in the middle of the summer when it's really cold or super hot.
I believe I have rosacea, I know my sisters and mother always had blotchy red patches and sensitive itchy skin all their lives.
I’m afraid it's just going to get worse.
I heard that certain foods can help or make it worse. Do you think that is true? Do you know of any natural treatments for rosacea?
I've tried some drug store brand creams for itchy red skin, but they didn't do much. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your question regarding natural cures for rosacea.
Please understand that it's always important to get a doctors opinion and diagnosis to make sure you understand exactly what is going on with your skin.
In reference to food and rosacea, there seems to be a connection between a certain diet (like alkaline foods) and a reduction in rosacea flare-ups.
It's not that certain foods cause rosacea, but certain foods - like alcohol or spices - can increase the incidence of flare-ups and symptoms.

Also, consider using willow bark extract to improve skin symptoms. Some call this ingredient the rosacea treatment secret.
Willow bark extract is used as an antiseptic, astringent, and has excellent anti-inflammatory properties.
It also contains salicylic acid, which can help exfoliate dead skin cells, clear the skin surface, and penetrate the follicles.
If you suffer from inflammation, blotchiness, breakouts, redness, or a bumpy, flaky complexion - consider giving it a try.
You can find it here in products like an anti-redness mask and face wash.

Willow bark and the other ingredients in this anti-redness mask is also great for super sensitive, blotchy skin too.
I've had several people write to me and tell me how much they liked the anti-redness mask. Even family members have used it with great success.
However, if you're under a doctors care for your rosacea issue, please let him know what you plan on using so it won't conflict with any medication he may prescribe.
Good luck, hope this information helps.
