Reddened skin - causes and treatment


Red skin is not just a cosmetic nuisance and often serves as a warning sign that can indicate a variety of health conditions, from common allergic reactions to more complex dermatological diseases such as rosacea.

Understanding and identifying the causes of red skin helps not only in choosing the right skincare products, but also in making lifestyle adjustments to prevent further aggravation or recurrence of symptoms.

In the following, we will explore the key causes and the most effective methods for managing and treating skin redness.

Causes and triggers

Skin redness can be triggered by a number of factors. Genetics can play a major role, as some people inherit fairer and more sensitive skin, which is most prone to redness.

Environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, sunlight or strong winds, and hormonal changes such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy or menopause, also often contribute to redness.

Last but not least, lifestyle factors including stress, diet and the use of certain products can also leave noticeable effects on our face. Inappropriate cosmetics or skin care products can lead to irritation and consequent redness.


Skin redness often starts as a subtle, temporary change when blood vessels under the surface of the skin rapidly dilate, causing temporary redness.

This is a natural response of the body that usually subsides as the blood vessels return to their normal state, but without proper care of the skin, these blood vessels will eventually remain dilated, which can lead to permanent redness or even the development of skin conditions such as rosacea.

The gradual development of rosacea involves the following stages:

  1. Occasional flushing, which may take the form of rapid flushing.
  2. Permanent, diffuse redness, known as erytrosis, which is often most visible on the cheeks.
  3. Exacerbation of erytrosis with prominent veins which may herald the transition to rosacea.
  4. Inflammatory rosacea, manifesting as red patches, often accompanied by white pimples.

This gradual progression underlines the importance of timely and consistent skin care, especially when the first signs of redness are observed, which may also be accompanied by itching, burning, stinging and peeling.

Prevention and care

Avoiding known triggers is key to preventing further deterioration. Wear sun-protective clothing and regularly use high SPF creams such as Hemptouch Mineral Shield Face Sunscreen SPF 30, which provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection without irritation and is suitable for sensitive skin.

It is important to stick to an established routine and be alert to any changes that might indicate a need for adjustment or additional medical help.
