Rosacea And Diet: How Turning Vegan Saved My Skin

Different people go vegan for different reasons. Some may do it for moral reasons, health reasons, or simply to follow a trend. I am doing it to save my skin.

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes the skin of your face blotchy and red. As it advances it also brings small bumps and flakiness to the skin.

How To Calm Rosacea Flare Up?

All you can do with Rosacea is keep it under control.  This means finding your “triggers” and avoiding them to save your face.

Since my Rosacea started I’ve had to do several lifestyle changes.  I no longer drink any alcohol, use any non-natural skincare products, and have completely changed my diet.

I have found that my biggest triggers are food related – dairy, spicy foods, alcohol, and anything greasy/unhealthy.  Eating these things guarantees a rash-like flare up.

Since I started traveling things have taken a turn for the worse. I’ve sadly found out that my skin does not share my love for travel.

After 4 months of travel my skin hit rock bottom. There was no skincare product that could help it, no facial that could calm it. I looked in the mirror and I didn’t see me anymore.

My Rosacea Vegan Diet

It is based mainly on eating superfoods…all day! My body, skin, and mind are all nourished and, in turn, I feel healthy.

Switching to vegan also means that I no longer have to fight with my food. I simply go to vegan cafes where the ingredients that cause me harm are already off the menu.
