We all know how important a healthy diet is to achieve that glowing skin we’re after. Especially when dealing with skin problems, we are more likely to try and fight these problems by eating lots of fruits and vegetables and drinking green juices and herbal teas.
However, not all these healthy foods are effective in fighting rosacea, acne and eczema like perioral dermatitis. In fact, there are lots of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that can actually aggravate or even trigger skin problems in some of us.
Of course fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are highly beneficial to your overall health. But there is a large number of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that contain a high level of histamine or are histamine releasing. For most of us, these histamine levels aren’t causing any trouble but for some of us the high intake of histamine-rich or histamine-releasing food can trigger or worsen acne, perioral dermatitis, eczema and rosacea. That is surely not what you were aiming for when you were drinking that cold pressed green juice!
Well, the only way to find out is to try and eat less. If you’ve tried everything to fight those skin problems but haven’t succeeded yet, just give it a go and start a low-histamine diet. Just stop eating histamine-rich and histamine-releasing foods and see what happens. In most cases you’d have to see a significant change in about one or two weeks.
There are many websites on this topic available on the internet. Here is on that specializes in low histamine recipes; www.thelowhistaminechef.com. On this website you''ll also a clear list of which foods to avoid and which foods to eat. And remember; a balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables is always a good idea… Just choose wisely!
