Skin RednessDid you know that about sixteen million women in America suffer from rosacea? Dealing with persistent redness can be frustrating and challenging—especially without having much knowledge about the condition. While talking to a dermatologist is always your best choice, it is also important to understand the symptoms, causes and treatments for skin redness. Here is what you need to know.


Besides persistent skin redness, other common symptoms associated with this condition are red bumps, eye irritation such as dryness and redness, and hot, tender skin. Sometimes, small blood vessels on your nose and checks can become visible and sometimes swollen.


The actual cause for rosacea is unknown, however, it can be affected by different hereditary and environmental factors. Common factors that can trigger rosacea and skin redness are sunlight, temperature extremes, stress, certain foods, and drugs that dilate blood vessels. Redness is common in fair-skinned women between the ages of 30 and 60—especially the ones with family history of rosacea.


Treatments for rosacea and redness depend on how severe the sin reaction is. Dermatologists may recommend oral antibiotics, lasers and skin care products. A popular product is SkinMedica’s Redness Relief CalmPlex which helps prevent and reduce skin redness.  This product has been clinically proven to treat the underlying causes of redness with fast-acting results. Redness Relief CalmPlex is designed for those who suffer from chronic or acute redness and anyone that experiences flushing. It easily fits into any skin care regimen and it suites most skin types.
