Rosacea - a disease that you probably haven't heard of often, but that you see more often than you think. The skin condition manifests itself as reddish coloration on the face and can also be painful. As the appearance can also be accompanied by pimples and bumps, it is often confused with acne. Many Germans suffer from this disease, the origin of which is still not fully understood. But how can you counteract rosacea naturally and what tips could complement your treatment?

With natural methods, such as the individual spagyric mixtures from Zimply Natural, your complaints can be relieved naturally and sustainably.

What actually is rosacea?

A reddish coloration of the cheeks - and no, we don't mean embarrassment, but rosacea. This is a chronic skin condition that mainly affects the face. It is characterized by persistent redness, inflammation and visible blood vessels. The redness can appear and worsen periodically, especially in response to certain trigger factors. Rosacea can be classified as a widespread disease, as there are already 10 million known cases in Germany alone.

The role of genetics in rosacea

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you the exact causes of rosacea as they are not yet known. However, we can give you an overview of factors that increase the risk of rosacea. First, let's look at genetics. Even if it has not yet been fully proven that this is a major cause, there is a link. For example, if you have first-degree relatives with rosacea, you are at an increased risk of developing the disease. It is possible that rosacea occurs very frequently in some families.

The body's own inflammatory reactions: Immune system and mites

The body's own inflammatory reaction can also play a major role in the development of rosacea. An excessive reaction of the Immune system to certain stimuli and irritants can lead to inflammation. This in turn can cause dilation of the blood vessels and the characteristic redness. In the case of rosacea, it can also often be observed that the blood vessels dilate, making them more vascularized and visible. Demodex mites live naturally on the skin of humans and overpopulations have often been found in rosacea patients. These could lead to an excessive reaction of the immune system, which then causes the redness.

The influence of your lifestyle on rosacea

Diet, nicotine and skin care

If you have rosacea, you should pay attention to your diet. Some foods can make your symptoms worse. These can include hot spices, hot drinks, alcohol and caffeine. A healthy and balanced diet, free from spicy and irritating foods, can help control your symptoms.

These are hypoallergenic and gentle and therefore contain no fragrances, alcohol or chemicals. Alcohol and nicotine generally have very few positive effects and are also not beneficial for rosacea. These two substances can cause the blood vessels to dilate, increasing inflammation and redness. Therefore, reducing or avoiding the consumption of alcohol and Smoking can be helpful and alleviate your symptoms.

Stress, sun and the environment

Stress can actually lead to skin reactions, increase existing redness and inflammation and trigger rosacea. Relaxation method such as yoga, meditation and regular exercise can help you to reduce stress. It can also improve your skin health. Too much sun exposure is also not good for your skin and can trigger rosacea. In addition, UV rays can aggravate existing redness and inflammation. It helps if you regularly apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Extreme temperatures are another factor to consider. Cold and wind in particular can irritate the skin and cause redness. So try to protect your face with scarves or something similar in cold weather.

These medicinal plants can help you with rosacea

Horsetail Stimulates bladder and kidney activity. It drains the tissue and helps to remove waste products and, if necessary, edema. The edema and waste products are transported from the tissue to the renal-bladder system and excreted via the urine. This decongests and cleanses the body. Thanks to its draining properties, horsetail supports the tissue in overcoming and reducing these inflammatory, often chronic processes, perhaps even avoiding surgery and making it superfluous.

Belladonna is pain-reducing. A strongly overstimulated nervous system usually also means greater sensitivity to pain. The fact that belladonna regulates the nervous system also reduces sensitivity to pain, so that pain is no longer perceived with the same intensity.

Okoubaka is anti-inflammatory. Okoubaka reduces unwanted germs in the intestine that irritate and inflame the mucous membrane. This reduces the inflammation of the intestinal mucosa and the tissue regenerates. The patient may have had abdominal pain, which now disappears.

Mercury is germicidal. Bacteria have a metabolism and readily absorb this heavy metal. This causes them to poison themselves and die off. This makes it easier for the immune system to overpower them and render them harmless.

The Masterwort stimulates the immune system with its active ingredients. This is therefore better equipped to fight infections and ensures that the body's defenses are used to the maximum. With its antimicrobial effect, masterwort also relieves the immune system so that capacities of the immune system are freed up and can be used.

Allergic skin diseases are usually accompanied by severe itching. The area is scratched, breaking through the skin barrier and opening the door to secondary infections. Because Cardiospermum is anti-inflammatory and therefore relieves itching, you no longer scratch at the wound and it can close and heal. The skin barrier is restored and the risk of secondary infection is averted.

Skin problems have many faces. People are often plagued by dry, inflammatory skin conditions. But they can also be bacterial, slightly suppurating inflammations, which are usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus, a skin bacterium. For non-infectious, inflammatory skin rashes, the following helps Propolis with its basic anti-inflammatory effect and also prevents an infection from joining in and aggravating the situation.

The best-known application of the Field violets are so-called seborrhoeic eczema, i.e. skin inflammations that are accompanied by light and red spots and greasy scales. The pansy is often used internally as a tea or externally for dabbing. Viola is also often an ingredient in special ointments and creams. Its anti-inflammatory salicylic acid and antimicrobial flavonoids help to reduce inflammation in the skin so that the skin can regenerate better.

The toxin effect of the Mandrake is used today exclusively to influence circulation issues with an anti-inflammatory effect. Mandrake is always used in highly diluted concentrations to ensure that the toxic effect of the plant does not come into play. Mandragora also stimulates blood circulation, revs up the metabolism and gives the body the chance to regenerate and heal.

FAQ: Questions and answers about rosacea

Can rosacea be cured?

No, unfortunately there is no cure for rosacea. It is a chronic skin condition that often develops over long periods of time and can occur intermittently. Although there is no complete cure, certain treatments can help to alleviate the symptoms and delay the progression of the disease. In addition to specific treatments, lifestyle changes, specialized skin care, avoiding triggers, and natural therapies can help alleviate your symptoms.

Is there a link between rosacea and specific eye conditions such as ocular rosacea or dry eyes?

Yes, rosacea and certain eye conditions can be linked. Some people with rosacea experience eye problems in addition to skin symptoms. This is known as ocular rosacea and can have very different effects. Symptoms include irritated or watery eyes, burning, red eyes or the feeling of foreign bodies in the eye. The disease usually occurs at the same time as the skin symptoms and mainly affects the eyelids and the surface of the eye. It is assumed that both reactions stem from a common inflammatory reaction of the body. However, dry eyes with rosacea do not automatically mean that you have ocular rosacea. The skin condition can actually lead to a change in the composition of the tears, which dry eyes may result.

What role does gut health play in the development of rosacea?

The gut definitely plays a role in the regulation of the immune system and thus also in the body's inflammatory reactions. So if there is a Imbalance in the intestine this may also have an impact on the two components. However, these relationships still need to be researched further. It is therefore important to mention that the triggers and causes may differ from person to person.
