Facial redness

What is sensitive skin with facial redness?

Sensitive skin with redness is skin that reacts excessively, reddening and perceiving unpleasant sensations (tightness, burning, tingling, itching), in response to stimuli that usually do not provoke this reaction.

Repeated exposure to these triggers causes vasodilation of the facial skin capillaries. Initially, this redness (blushing) is transient; it can be defined as a hot sensation accompanied by visible reddening of the skin.

OVEREXPOSURE TO THE SUN

HOT DRINKS

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AND TOBACCO

ABRUPT CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE

STRESS OR EMOTIONAL SITUATIONS

HORMONAL CHANGES (MENOPAUSE)

Over time, redness (or erythrosis) becomes persistent, as the capillaries remain in a state of permanent vasodilation. Without adequate treatment, the condition can progress to more severe stages, such as rosacea subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic) or subtype 2 (papulopustular).
