What causes skin redness and how to treat it

Some reasons you might be experiencing skin redness and what to do when it happens. 

If you’ve ever suffered from red skin or rosacea, you’ll know just how frustrating it can be to get to the root of what’s causing it. If it’s something you experience often, we definitely recommend you see a skin expert before you self-diagnose. If you get sporadic flare ups and you’re not quite sure why, we’re here to give you some insight into what may be causing it, and what you can do when it happens. 

Whether you’re an ongoing sufferer of a more serious skin issue such as rosacea, or you just have sensitive skin that is prone to redness, the best port of call is clinical results. Like most skin concerns, it can be managed largely by having the right ingredients in your skincare, alongside some hard working professional treatments. 

If you’re looking for a results driven way to treat red skin, as well as avoid it from happening all together, here’s everything you need to know.

What causes skin redness?

It’s likely we’ve all experienced red skin at some point in our lives. However, there are a number of underlying causes that bring on a sudden hot flash. These involve the usual suspects; sunburn, allergies or maybe you just went a bit too hard at the gym. These aren’t usually cause for alarm and are, mostly, part of everyday life. 

However, rosacea is a persistent skin condition where you can visibly see blood vessels on the face and this requires specific treatment.

How do you know the difference between redness and rosacea?

Not all skin redness is made equal, and the occasional skin redness is not likely a sign you have rosacea. However, if you’re struggling with persistent redness, it may be time to seek professional help. 

As we age, our skin undergoes its own evolution process. Depending on internal and external factors such as stress, sun exposure, and hormonal changes these can manifest in different ways for different people. For some, this may be skin inflammation in the form of rosacea. 

Rosacea is a chronic condition that usually appears between the ages of 30-60. Most people who suffer report persistent facial redness, which comes and goes depending on skin-stressers. For some, it worsens in winter, and for others certain skin products, medications or diet can contribute to flare ups. But there are steps you can take to treat, and reduce its intensity.
