New study reveals benefits of coffee drinking for rosacea patients
Submitted by Communications & Public Affairs Providence Health Care
Coffee is known for boosting energy, morale and a patriotic love of Tim Hortons, and now a new east coast study confirms its benefits for rosacea patients.
Findings published last week in JAMA Dermatology indicated that caffeinated coffee consumption is associated with a decreased risk of incident rosacea. These findings apply only to caffeinated coffee, not decaf nor other foods and beverages containing caffeine such as tea, chocolate and soda.
According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition affecting more than three million Canadians. It may first present as intermittent facial redness or blushing on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Over time, the redness may worsen. Bumps, tiny pus-filled pimples and enlarged blood vessels may appear.
