Skin redness/flushing can simply be caused by an increase in body temperature, emotions (such as embarrassment or anger) or an underlying condition like rosacea. Many women also experience facial flushing during menopause.
There are many contributing factors to skin redness/flushing. Our skin flushes when there is a sudden increase in body temperature. Most often this is a physical response to internal or external factors such as spicy food or emotional triggers. If the redness/flushed appearance is persistent, it could be a sign of an underlying condition, such as rosacea.
Skin redness/flushing usually occurs on the face, predominately the cheeks and the neck.
Everyone can get skin redness/flushing, as it is a natural bodily reaction, however, some people are more prone to it than others. Menopausal women often experience facial flushing as a symptom.
