Georgia top four tips
1. See a dermatologist to determine what kind of rosacea you have.
2. Find out when it started and what triggers it.
3. Work with a naturopath or medical practitioner on the treatment.
4. Identify if there are any food triggers and change your diet accordingly.
Georgia said her acne recovery didn’t come easy after her chronic battle with rosacea triggered her inflamed skin in 2018.
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that often affects the face, creating swollen red lumps and making small blood vessels visible.
‘My skin is finally in a really happy place, my acne finally cleared and then my Rosacea went crazy, I lost it ‘why is it always one thing after another?’ she said.
‘When the body is truly healing, it’ll heal something that will clear out ready for the next thing until the root of the problem is addressed.
‘Skin can definitely get worse before it gets better – and improve then get worse repeatedly until it settles.’
Georgia said she managed to clear her skin when she focused on nutrition, herbal medicine, supplementation, meditation, trauma healing and kinesiology
