Burning skin on the face: causes and solutions


Burning skin on the face is a problem that more and more people are experiencing in a wide range of situations.

It can arise from a variety of causes, and understanding the underlying causes of burning skin on the face is the key to choosing the right measures to relieve the discomfort and improve skin health.

Typical symptoms of burning skin

Have you ever had the feeling that the skin on your face is burning? Burning skin is usually a distinctly unpleasant and disturbing sensation, as it can cause itching, redness and swelling in addition to the burning sensation itself.

Burning skin may affect only certain areas or the whole face, but sometimes additional symptoms such as extreme dryness, peeling and pain may also occur.

Causes of burning skin on the face

There are several causes of burning skin on the face, but the most common cause is:

  • Prolonged exposure to the sun (most often without adequate UV protection), which often develops into an allergic reaction to the sun.
  • Use of overly aggressive cosmetic products (especially those containing irritating ingredients such as parabens and alcohol)
  • Allergic reactions (for example skin allergies to certain ingredients in cosmetic products)
  • Environmental factors or extreme weather conditions (for example, extremely dry humidity can lead to dryness and a burning sensation on the skin)
  • Skin diseases (common diseases that cause burning sensations on the skin are rosacea, seborrhoeic dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis)

Attention: if you have problems with burning skin on your face on a regular basis and there is also pain, you are advised to consult a dermatologist, as only a qualified dermatologist will be able to identify the underlying cause of the burning skin and give guidance on the appropriate treatment.

General tips for managing burning skin on the face

To effectively manage burning skin on the face, it is essential to follow some basic guidelines to help reduce discomfort:

  • Basic skin care should include mild and gentle cleansing products that won't irritate the skin further. It is important to maintain the skin barrier with a proper skin routine that keeps your skin healthy and youthful.
  • Make sure you eat and hydrate properly: did you know that a healthy, balanced diet rich in antioxidants can help to keep your skin healthy, reduce inflammation and, as a result, reduce the burning sensation on your skin?
  • Avoid stimuli that cause burning: try to identify those stimuli that aggravate the condition of your facial skin. Is it a particular cosmetic product? Consider using a new one. Does your skin burn particularly when you eat certain foods? Try to reduce it. By identifying the triggers, you can take appropriate action and improve your skin's condition.
