Food and Rosacea Flare Ups

Do you have Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that causes excess inflammation in the capillaries. 

It is commonly seen on the nose, on the cheeks, on the chin and on the center of the forehead as redness or a rash. 

The capillaries, small blood vessels are very red and obvious. The skin can feel sensitive and hot.

citrus fruits

Some foods may actually help improve the appearance of rosacea.


These fruits are vascular constrictors therefore, they may actually help the blood vessels look a little less red. 

Keep a food diary
A food diary is a great tool to help you pinpoint foods that cause flare ups so you can avoid them. 

Right down the foods you eat each day and note how your skin is looking and feeling at the end of the day. 

You may start to see a pattern emerge when you eat a particular food. Then, you can eliminate the foods that cause irritation and help to calm your skin.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side.
