Rosacea what can I do about it?

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is an increasingly common skin condition in the face that occurs especially in people with light-colored skin. Rosacea is characterized by red, inflamed spots on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Rarer at Rosacea are spots on the chest, ears, neck and around the hairline. Pustules, pustules, papules or acne can also develop in these red areas. Typically at Rosacea are the visibly enlarged blood vessels, also known as telangiectasias.

More information

How does Rosacea develop?
Rosacea is usually a result of untreated rosacea. If the blood vessels or telangiectasias become inflamed, the surrounding skin becomes red and may start to swell. If the rosacea is not treated afterwards, permanent deformation of the skin can occur in the long term, in severe cases even rhinophyma, a distortion of the nose. This mainly occurs in men (and usually has nothing to do with drinking).

What does food have to do with Rosacea?
There are a number of foods and drinks that can aggravate rosacea. All alcoholic beverages, especially wine, appear to be culprits. In terms of food, it is mainly spicy foods such as peppers, sausage, red meat, pickles, milk products, mustard, curry, vinegar, tabasco, ketchup, cinnamon, anise, peppers, tomatoes, bouillon cubes and sharp herbs. Also avoid using linoleic acid food oils.

What can I do myself to reduce Rosacea?

There are a number of foods that can reduce rosacea. Omega-3 rich diet, such as oily fish, but always in combination with powerful antioxidants. Fish oil can easily become rancid and aggravates the complaints. Do not bake the fish too hot, for the same reason. Eat lots of colorful vegetables and fruits that do not appear in the list above. Think apricots, mangoes, melon, pumpkin, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, spinach, carrots, all cabbage varieties, all kinds of colored fruit, all kinds of Italian herbs, unfiltered olive oil (cold used). See also: The anti-inflammatory diet.

If there is chronic inflammation of rosacea in an active form, it is useful to consume more omega-3 fats, such as SkinSecure (4 per day). SkinDefence is also important, also 4 tablets per day.

In case of a very moderate, quiet rosacea, use of the SkinBalance (6 capsules) together with the SkinProtect (3 per day) may be sufficient. In addition, much vitamin D3 is necessary as in the XtraC & D3 (6 tabs per day).
The indicated dosage is a generally well-functioning average dose for Rosacea. People who are very overweight can slightly increase the dose.

Als gevolg van het Covid-19 virus hebben wij, met pijn in ons hart, besloten om de vestiging aan de Parnassusweg 9 te sluiten.

Afspraken kunnen tevens via email of telefonisch gemaakt worden; dit omdat wij ruimte moeten plannen tussen de klanten ivm de nieuwe Covid-19 voorzorgsmaatregelen.


We zijn bereikbaar op 020-854 5161 of via info@bloyinstitute.com.


Cliënten die een behandelkuur op de Parnassusweg gepland hebben staan kunnen bellen naar 020-584 5161 voor verdere informatie.


Cosmetisch arts Annebeth Kroeskop heeft per 18 mei met haar team een nieuwe kliniek geopend onder de naam AnnebethKroeskop.com BV aan de van Eeghenstraat 98 in Amsterdam.
