Redness and Rosacea

Facial redness, like facial veins, is a common skin condition. It occurs more frequently in fair-skinned individuals, especially those of western European ancestry. Women seem to be more affected than men, for unknown reasons. In addition to genetics, several environmental and lifestyle factors can contribute to redness:

  • Hot and spicy foods
  • Alcohol
  • Extreme temperatures – being in really hot or really cold environments
  • Sunlight and chronic sun exposure
  • Physical activity
  • Emotional swings – anger and stress
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Harsh skin care products and routines – including excessive exfoliation

Prior to beginning any treatment for redness, it is important to determine any underlying lifestyle and environmental causes and make the necessary changes. This helps ensure a more effective long-term treatment outcome. If left untreated, redness tends to worsen over time.
