Diet & Rosacea

Diet will not 'cause' rosacea, however it can cause 'flare-ups' for people who already have it. Drinking alcohol is a very common cause of flare-ups. Drinking hot coffee or tea, eating very spicy foods, or hot soups, all may lead to a flare ups.


Managing your diet and understanding the factors which aggravate your skin the most are a good way to prevent flare ups. Also, wearing sunscreen everyday will help.
