YESSSS!!! It absolutely can!!!!
I love treating rosacea because it’s so treatable and the results are very rewarding! Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition which also consists of compromised immune activity, so there’s definitely a few different areas we need to heal.
Man oh man, after looking online just to see what YOU all see when researching this skin condition I was shocked (but not really) at what I was reading. Ohhhh my goodness gracious!
We NOW know that the root cause is digestive issues and damage to the digestive tract! We KNOW this! The barrier is deficient which then sensitizes the skin to active ingredients and irritants. Its honestly not that complicated.
So then how do I heal Rosacea?
First, I work with my client (as a team!) to calm the skin by empowering the immune system and restoring the upper barrier (not by suppressing it with steroids and antibiotics) We must HEAL the inflammation without interfering with the skin’s natural repair process.
We also have to treat the digestive issues which is what’s causing the issue in the first place. Its also important to re-build the collagen layer because it’s thinning faster than any other skin types due to the chronic inflammation (which means rosacea skin ages MUCH faster) No bueno!
Finally, I help to repair DNA damage that has been caused by inflammation. You may not realize this but there’s now scar tissue build up and often times “broken” capillaries.
So as you can see, it’s not a quick fix… it’s TRULY healing your skin AND your body. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel better too!
