If I could only give up caffeine!rosacea
Posted 23 April 2005 - 10:04 AM
I have be drinking caffeine since I was a teenage. Oddly enough, that is when my acne started! I have always wondered if caffeinated coffee and my acne were linked.
I really want to try to stop drinking caffeine. I also have to stop smoking. I am sure my complexion and rosacea would improve if I gave up these two vices.
Has anyone here seen improvements in their complexion by giving up caffeine and nicotine?

***60-80 ounces of water per day..........I can not stress how important this is. You need water to help the body flush toxins. I saw a huge imporvement from doing this alone.
***wash face 2 times per day with Provon soap(or any soap containing PCMX other wise known as chloroxylenol)
***I dont exfoliate with a product.I use a cheap not very soft washcloth and rub gently. I read somewhere Cybil Shepard does the same thing. Her grandmother told her about it.
***moisturize with grapeseed oil~2 times a day
***Use sunscreen on face if I am not wearing make up
***keep hands off face
***keep hair clean and pulled out of face
***Use only Jlynne minerals make up.....this stuff is amazing!!! I wore it one day while being out in the sun for a long time. I didnt sunburn on my face,but did everywhere else

My face goes red when I drink a lot of coffee- quite red actually.
If I mix in one or more cups of cold water between cups of coffee it seems to help though. It seems to be just blushing from the hot liquid mostly in my case. YMMV.
