S01 E12 – Acne vs Rosacea (And What Causes Them)

S01 E12 – Acne vs Rosacea (And What Causes Them)

Today our focus goes beyond just acne, as we tackle the enigmatic condition of rosacea. Often mistaken for acne, rosacea is actually a chronic inflammatory response that requires a different approach. Many of you who have suffered from rosacea have been told to avoid spicy foods and stress less, but the redness and inflammation persist. In this episode, we explore the correlation between rosacea and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and how rebalancing our microbiome, nutrition, and skincare can lead to the regression of rosacea symptoms.

In this week’s episode, we discuss…

  • The key distinguishing factors between non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne.
  • Distinctive features and triggers of rosacea to better manage its occurrence.
  • Diet and stress management importance when addressing both acne and rosacea.
  • The relationship between rosacea, SIBO, and overall gut health.
  • Rebalancing mineral imbalances and pH levels contribute to controlling rosacea symptoms.

Never feel like we’re shaming you or judging you if you have taken Accutane or any type of medication, becuase we understand the emtionally and mental component of it. However, we will always be here to help educate you and power you with knowledge so you can make your best informed decision for your skin.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
