Why Is My face So Red? By Homeopathic and Herbal Remedies.com 
Douse the flames of red, burning cheeks…

The face harbors a large quantity of tiny blood vessels just under the surface of the skin. Facial flushing occurs when there is a sudden increase of blood flowing through these vessels them to swell. In time, ongoing dilation may cause blood vessels to get larger and appear like small red lines on the surface of the skin.

Exaggerated red cheeks or patches of red may appear on the face, and many people find that their facial skin may become increasingly sensitive - often reacting to skin products, such as conventional lotions or soaps.

Tiny red bumps may accompany the area of redness, and as flare-ups continue, the redness increases, then the flare-ups occur more often - creating a pesky and embarrassing cycle. If left untreated, the redness and red lines may become permanent.

Certain triggers can cause flushing of the skin mostly in the cheek and nose areas. These triggers can include sun, stress, hot weather, alcohol, caffeine, spicy food, exercise, hot baths, and cold weather.

The natural way

Like other organs, the skin requires good nutrients and balance for sustained health. Eating regular, healthy meals can go a long way to providing the nutritional needs of skin cells and moisturizing the skin.

Facial skin is especially sensitive to external factors such as wind, temperature and certain skin products. Avoid harsh skin care products, as well as limit sun exposure and use sunscreen. Adequate rest, proper nutrition and water intake will improve skin health and hydration.
