Common Skin Concern: Diffuse Redness

Sensitive Skin Treatments

Diffuse Redness

General redness, also known as diffuse redness, is characterised by intermittent blushing and flushing that leaves the skin red/pink and often warm to the touch.  It is most prevalent in people with fairer skin types and commonly appears on the nose, forehead, cheeks and chin. In some cases, it can also be seen on the ears, neck and chest.

Rosacea, on the other hand, is a chronic skin condition that can only be diagnosed by a medical professional and differs from general redness in its severity. It can be difficult to recognise as the condition develops gradually over time but is usually characterised by a persistent deep, ruddy redness accompanied by broken capillaries. The condition has a strong hereditary component and treatment options are limited.

What causes diffuse redness?

Redness occurs when blood rushes to the skin and causes capillaries to dilate, resulting in an overall flushed appearance. If left untreated, the delicate capillaries can remain dilated and result in permanently broken capillaries on the skin’s surface or chronic redness (such as Rosacea). Common causes of diffuse or general redness include genetics, sun exposure, medications and poor skincare.

While redness can be your skin’s reaction to a range of conditions there are several triggers that should be avoided where possible, including sun exposure, alcohol consumption, hot or spicy food, exertion, stress, chemicals and cosmetics.
