Question by bordered: ea, been to derm23 yr old male, long sufferer of rosacea many times, I need new insight and my own experience?
Had Rosacea since senior high. Ever since I’ve been seeing derm with some success but I always end up coming back, either the product stopped being effective, or product had recieved a ban from the FDA. Also did light therapy session with little improvement.

I’ve used atleast 6 different topical cream just for rosacea, all if not most contain some sort of steroid and other chemicals I am afraid to have on my skin in the long term.

My rosacea can get ugly, with not just flushing but also bumps and blemishes. The most difficult part to treat is the ones located under my lower eyelid because using certain topical creams can thin the skin, you know what that means, ladies.

September 2008 is when I took a risk. I switched all my skin-care products to all-natural including shaving. Either it was going to get better or worse. It did get better, in 10 minutes saw noticeable result on the mirror! I felt the debris from the roscea just slide away, I can feel it on the tip of my fingers. This natural regimen caught the rosacea at its very early stage before it became full-blown, overnight. Obviously, I am also aware about other conditions that may play a role in causing rosacea to appear.

But fast forward to today, combination of getting fever, exposure to wind all day, physical stress made me breakout into a more widesprea area under the lower eye. It seems uncontrollable with the stuff I’ve been using for more than 6 months. It’s as if my rosacea adapted to this new forumala, like a virus mutating into someting else that resist current treatments. I dont know this is happening.

I just need to know if someone out there has had any success formulating their own regimen using natural products. I have very sensitive skin and also prone to acne and other skin-related issues like eczema and seborrea.

The products that I used for my face: Dessert Essence: Jojoba Oil, Burt’s Bees: Tomato Soap, Dessert Essence: Tea Tree oil.

For my hair, I use various Burt’s Bees hair products, they are 98-100% natural and provided some relief with seborea on the scalp. I could not risk using chemicals that tend to flow over my face as I shower.

Again if you found something that works for you that is all-natural skin-care products or have tips on how to deal with rosacea that not commonly found over the Internet, kindly share them.

Rosacea can be aggravated by a bad diet and it can be linked to a few nutrient deficiencies. Try taking a high dose B vitamin complex (at least 100mg of each B) take in the morning, Zinc picolinate at least 22mg ( take at night on an empty stomach), 500mg of vitamin C 3 times a day. it will take a few months to build up the levels of zinc.

Diet wise, its a good idea to try and cut out dairy , cut down on red meat and cut out all junk food. Eat loads of fruit and veg, especially leafy greens. Cut down on sugar and always combine carbs with a good source of protein.

If you are having any problems with digestion ie constipation, bloating, diarrhea or flatulence then you could try taking a digestive enzyme for a few months. This will help to get the nutrients out of your food.

Good luck
