Why Is My Skin So Red? By LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay,
Who doesn’t like a rosy glow? But when that glow turns red and angry, it’s time to take a second look. There are several causes—and solutions—to calm your skin, so let’s take a look at them:
– Irritation – Skin that is extremely dry can become red and look like a rash! We’ve worked with women who had dry, irritated skin so long they didn’t realize it was severe. Once they started using our products, which properly hydrated and lubricated their skin, they could not believe how different and comfortable it felt. Not to mention that they lost about 5 years!
– Rosacea – Scientists still aren’t sure what causes this mysterious condition, though theories abound. Usually, cheeks, chin and nose become bright red. When active, rosacea also has pimples. Certain foods can trigger a flare up. But again, it’s very individual. Topical medications help to tame the redness, as well as laser. Good quality skin care is a must.
– Couperose – Those small, spidery veins that creep across your cheeks, chin and nose are called couperose. They are broken capillaries and blood vessels that have become weak and broken.
Couperose is often the result of heredity, but extremes in temperature and over-exfoliating are also causes. Laser can rid you of it, but there are also products designed to strengthen capillary walls and tame the redness.
A combination of clinical treatment and skincare is recommended. If you’re looking for suggestions to make your skin more comfortable and beautiful, just let us know.
That’s what we do best!
