Facial Redness: Causes And Remedies

Many women around the world suffer from red and blotchy skin on their faces. This can be irritating, and because it occurs in such an exposed area of the body, it can lead many ladies to feel self-conscious and unhappy with themselves. If you suffer from facial redness, I hope that the information in this post helps you to deal with this problem so that you can begin to feel happier and more confident in yourself.

One of the most frustrating things about red and blotchy skin on the face is that there isn’t just one cause that could be causing it. In fact, there are a number of potential reasons why your skin is behaving in this way, and it could be a combination of these reasons. It is a good idea to speak to your doctor if you want accurate information on the cause of your facial redness.  And to make matters more complicated, there is not just one treatment for facial redness. However, here are some of the most common causes for facial redness and their remedies.

Rosacea is a common skin condition that results in redness of the face. It is caused by the inflammation of blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin. It is most noticeable on the cheeks chin and the around the nose. It is particularly common in women with fair skin.

If your redness of the skin is caused by Rosacea, you could try a niacinamide face cream. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. When applied topically to affected areas of skin, many women have noted that they have seen a reduction in redness on their skin. Yellow based mineral powders are also thought to be helpful for covering up redness on the face.

Contact dermatitis is another cause of facial redness. This is a condition caused by an allergy to products that come into contact with your skin like washing detergent or strongly perfumed soaps and makeup.

If this is the cause of your facial redness, you may wish to try a moisturising product which contains natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. For example, PAI Comfrey And Calendula Calming Cream is formulated especially for sensitive and allergy-prone skin. The two main ingredients, comfrey and calendula, will help to sooth irritated skin leaving it hydrated and relaxed.

Oily skin is prone to pimple breakouts, and so this could be another reason you are suffering from red and blotchy skin.

If your red skin issues are caused by oily skin, there are makeup products that could help with this problem. For example, Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder has been reviewed as effective at reducing the effects of an oily T-Zone and covering up redness.

After finding out the cause and appropriate treatment for your red skin, I hope that you are left feeling confident and beautiful in your skin. Please let me know if you suffer from red skin, what the cause is and what treatments you have found effective.
