There are many ways in which people exhibit facial redness. Some have a flushed appearance with a classic red nose and cheeks aggravated by spicy foods, or hot and cold weather. Others have obvious capillaries or blood vessels that range from just a single spot, to a small area around the nose, or the entire face.
The common causes of facial redness include:
- Sun exposure and UV damage
- Intrinsic skin ageing with epidermal and dermal thinning
- Rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition
- Keratosis pilaris, a condition that commonly causes rough skin and redness on the cheeks and upper arms in younger patients
- Vascular lesions and birthmarks
