And if I told you that you could not have rosacea anymore! For me, as for many health experts, your skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside your body, your overall health. Many studies establish an association between skin disorders – including rosacea, acne, dermatitis and psoriasis – and inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract (irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, SIBO, Crohn’s disease). ). People who suffer from these digestive problems have an inflammation in the gut. This inflammation has the power to change the structure of bacteria that normally colonize the skin. By the way, we regularly use antibiotics to treat acne, right?
Moreover a study has made a 100% correlation between rosacea and patients who suffer from SIBO. The study followed these people for 3 years, and found that in people who treated their SIBO this greatly improved their rosacea.

Opt for a nutrient-dense Paleo-type anti-inflammatory diet.
Sugar in all its forms aggravates the inflammation, increases the oxidative stress, irritates the intestinal mucosa and aggravates the disorders of the skin. Added sugar is found in a high percentage of processed and packaged foods, as well as artificial sweeteners / ingredients, preservatives and textural stabilizers that can trigger allergic reactions. To avoid them, use healthy whole ingredients that you know.
All processed foods, trans and processed vegetable oils.
Refined vegetable oils rich in omega-6 are pro-inflammatory. These include corn, soybean, safflower, sunflower and canola oils. Fried foods are also difficult for the digestive system and can aggravate the damage caused by the bowel.
Coffee, other drinks containing coffee and alcohol seem to aggravate some people’s rosacea symptoms, especially redness. This differs from person to person, but it is worthwhile to see if your symptoms improve when you reduce both.
