Are your cheeks crimson, even though you’re not blushing and haven’t been in the sun? If so, your body could be telling you something.
The most common causes of red cheeks and a red face include:
• Environmental damage
• Disease, i.e. diabetes and rosacea
• High blood pressure
• Infection or trauma
• Some medications
• Unsuitable cleansers or creams
• Hormonal imbalances
If left untreated, redness in the skin often gets worse. Not only will it look obvious, it may also lead to more uncomfortable conditions. Once diagnosed, you can often treat your red skin successfully with a combination of clinic therapies and a prescribed home care treatment.
