Never be confused again. When it comes to rosacea and triggers, there’s an infamously long list of things that can cause your skin to turn red and become irritated. Rosacea flares are known to occur following red wine consumption, exercise, and stressful episodes. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Patients always ask me for a copy of this wonderful resource from the National Rosacea Society. It is a comprehensive list of foods/activities that can worsen rosacea in susceptible individuals. It goes without saying that everyone is different. Red wine may be benign for you, but horrible for someone else.
