Redness Triggers

Alcohol – Drinking alcoholic beverages causes inflammation throughout the body. As such, this causes the skin’s blood vessels to expand and increase blood flow which amplifies the flushing and blushing of the face.

Stress – Stress affects our health in various ways, and can also worsen facial redness.

Spicy foods – Spicy foods can aggravate facial redness, especially for those suffering from rosacea.

It is important to understand and diagnose the underlying cause of facial redness in order to correctly administer the most suitable treatment for it.
