Redness & Rosacea

Facial redness, broken capillaries and facial flushing are an increasingly common skin concern for many – especially for those who suffer from inflammatory skin disorders known as rosacea.

Often anyone suffering from facial redness will also notice small spider-like veins on the surface of the skin, typically across the cheeks, nose and chin. These blood vessels are tiny capillaries near the skin’s surface that have broken after being overworked and dilating too much and often become progressively worse with time.

Facial flushing can also be attributed to an impaired barrier function meaning irritants can penetrate the skin and moisture can escape which is where home care products are also essential to help the skin repair its protective barrier.

What causes rosacea?

There isn’t an exact scientific cause for rosacea, however, there are a few factors that can cause this such as:

  • Abnormalities in blood vessels
  • Skin mites/bacteria
  • Family history

Stimulation of capillaries causes constant dilating and contracting and, with over-stimulation, these capillaires can eventually break, as the vessels are thin and fragile. This mean that redness and inflammation is not readily controlled. This is much like if you were to continually stretch an elastic band – eventually, over time, it would just snap.  This can occur naturally; however, there are numerous factors that can contribute to increased damage to your capillaries, including:

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Inflammation
  • Rosacea
  • Illness

Additional lifestyle factors can also increase facial flushing by impairing the skins barrier, including :

  • Excess sun exposure
  • Sunburn
  • Sun beds
  • Smoking
  • Harsh weather conditions
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Stress
  • Over-processing the skin with harsh products
  • Excess spicy foods or caffeine
  • Medication
