"Redness from rosacea may be triggered by hot and spicy foods, red wine, and temperature extremes. I'm not saying you have to give them up completely, but you should consider cutting back significantly on Cabernet, Indian food, and piping hot coffee," says Susan Taylor, M.D., a dermatologist in Philadelphia.
“Flushing, rosacea, and facial redness are the result of dilatation of tiny capillaries located just beneath the epidermis. Blueberries are known to alleviate flushing symptoms. To make a rinse-off mask, crush organic blueberries in a bowl with a spoon, add 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt, and apply to the whole face,” says Ludmila Milic, lead esthetician at Lorien Spa in Alexandria, Virginia.
"Are you doing too much? Over-active scrubbing with abrasive exfoliators or being overzealous with adult acne treatments can cause facial redness. If you notice sensitivity to a product, take it out of your regimen to see if things clear up," advises Robert Grant, M.D., a plastic surgeon in New York City.
"Cucumber soothes and calms on contact. Peel a small cucumber and discard the seeds. Puree the cucumber in a food processor and mix in 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask to your face, letting it rest for at least 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water," Milic says.
