Flushing and Facial Redness

Flushing and facial redness

Flushing and facial redness is common among many men and women. This skin condition involves the face and sometimes other parts of the body significantly becoming redder. Facial redness can be a sign of inflammation, but prolonged sun exposure, bacterial infections, improper use of skincare products, allergic reactions, acne, stress are also among the many factors that could lead to flushing and redness. At Phyto-C Skin Care by Phytoceuticals, Inc., we research, develop, and manufacture natural, safe, and effective skincare products to soothe and calm irritated and redness-prone skin.

Understanding Flushing / Redness Prone Skin Issues

Common symptoms of flushing / redness-prone skin include:

  • Solid patches of redness
  • Pimples
  • Red vascular lines
  • Dry and scaly skin
  • Feeling itchy

Facial redness and flushing can lead to warmth on the face and sometimes neck. This usually happens because of an increase of blood flow. Blood vessels expand to take in the increased amount of blood, causing solid red patches on the face.

Flushing, which can be the result of sun exposure without protection, may also lead to an uneven skin tone and dark spots. This condition can only be reduced with laser treatment.

Additionally, alcohol consumption not only causes redness and inflammation to the face but can also lead to redness in the entire body. Alcohol causes small blood vessels in the skin to enlarge, encouraging an increased blood flow towards the surface of the skin.  

And facial redness can also be the result of an allergic reaction to the makeup and cosmetic products applied to the face. While some cosmetic products contain potentially harmful ingredients that could irritate the skin, allergic reactions due to makeup are sometimes the result of your skin’s unique chemistry.

Popular Products for Facial Flushing and Redness

When skin becomes irritated, red, and itchy, it is important to treat it with the right skincare products. Leaving skin untreated may worsen skin conditions. Before redness progresses to a bigger problem such as serious acne, it is important to use soothing products that can help manage inflammation as well as excess sebum. Vitamin C has been proven to soothe inflammation and calm reddened, uneven skin tones.
