What Triggers Your Rosacea Flare-Up?

If you suffer from rosacea, chances are you have never been comfortable with the embarrassing red flare-ups that are just as hard to manage as severe acne. Many people who suffer from rosacea are unaware there are actual triggers that can worsen their rosacea flare-ups.


There are many foods you can eat that can act as a trigger for your rosacea. Some you will be happy to be rid of, such as liver, whereas others might be a little harder to give up – such as chocolate. For the items you would rather continue enjoying, you can watch for signs they are causing issues for your skin condition.

Here are the main foods that can be related to rosacea issues:

    • Some dairy including yogurt, sour cream and cheese
    • Real chocolate and vanilla
    • Nightshade plants such as eggplant and tomato
    • Avocados
    • Spinach
    • Broad-leaf beans such as lima, navy or pea
    • Citrus
    • Bananas
    • Red plums
    • Dried fruits such as raisins and figs
    • Spicy foods
    • Thermally hot foods and beverages
    •  Everyone is different so don't take these examples as gospel, just be aware they may be triggers for you.

  • Lifestyle

    Some of the lifestyle choices you are making can also have an impact on the condition of your skin. For example leading a very stressful life can lead to rosacea flare-ups.

    Trying to reduce the stress in your life is important, as well as avoiding anything that can increase your anxiety. Other lifestyle choices such as drinking alcoholic beverages including red wine, champagne, bourbon, beer, gin and vodka can also affect the condition of your skin.

    ROSACEA Skincare Products

    Any one with a skin condition should always be conscious of the skin care products they use. Watch for signs your skin care products are causing redness and discontinue use if they do.

  • For rosacea in particular, Alcohol, Witch hazel, some Fragrances or acetone are known offenders in skin care so avoid these ingredients.

    Other triggers can include sun exposure, certain drugs such as vasodilators and topical steroids, menopause and exposure to strong winds or cold and warm environments such as saunas.

     MiSMO carries an excellent line of products ideal to help fight the signs of rosacea flare-ups. They are clear of aggravating ingredients and instead use soothing ingredients such as Aloe Vera and MSM.
