Skin Redness and Rosacea

Skin redness, often accompanied by warmth or irritation, can be a response to internal or external triggers. While occasional redness may be a natural reaction, persistent or chronic redness may indicate an underlying issue such as rosacea.

Causes of Skin Redness

  • Rosacea: A chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes pimples or bumps. Rosacea can be triggered by factors like sun exposure, stress, and certain foods.

  • Sensitive Skin and poor skin barrier: Individuals with sensitive skin may experience redness in response to various stimuli, including certain ingredients in skincare products.

  • Inflammation: Skin inflammation due to conditions like dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis can result in red and irritated skin.

  • Temperature Extremes: Exposure to extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, can cause skin redness.

  • Sunburn: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sunburn, leading to red and inflamed skin.

  • Allergies: Allergic reactions to skincare products, certain foods, or environmental allergens can manifest as redness.
