Four Cups of Coffee A Day can Relieve the Effects of Rosacea


Rosacea is a common type of skin diseases that often characterized by redness, and visible blood vessels often happen around the surface of the face. Rosacea can occur to anyone but often experience to most women in middle-age who have fair skin.

Experts haven’t found a further cure to rosacea, but a new study is said that coffee can help to relieve the effects and symptoms of it.

“This is certainly a surprising finding. While we believed that hot beverages were rosacea triggers, coffee is not something that’s been on our radar as ‘good’ for rosacea,” Dr. Rajani Katta, a board-certified dermatologist and author of “Glow: The Dermatologist’s Guide to a Whole Foods Younger Skin Diet,” told Healthline.

Despite this negative study a new shed of light has found that coffee can help relieve rosacea because of the coffees polyphenols properties found in caffeine. The study suggested drinking three to four cups of coffee a day can relieve the effects of rosacea.

Caffeine in coffee is not just to give alertness, but beneficial to some diseases like rosacea because of its vasoconstrictor that helps relieve redness of the kin.

Because of coffees’ powerful antioxidant components, it is a natural suppressant that can help curb inflammation.

The researchers of the study conclude that caffeine from coffee can help balance hormone levels that are associated with rosacea, including adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol.

The bottom line

And if you are planning to attempt in drinking coffee for your rosacea make sure to consume your coffee at a reduced temperature that won’t trigger symptoms.
