  • Pequenos vasos visíveis. Trata-se de um agravamento da eritrose - rosácea.
    pontos vermelhos (por vezes "com cabeça branca").
    Pode tratar-se de uma rosácea inflamatória.


The cause of all types of redness is hyper-reactivity of the skin’s vessels

When the skin’s vessels dilate quickly, redness appears on the surface of the face: this is a flush. The vessels then return to normal.
But in the long-term, the phenomenon worsens and the vessels, more and more dilated, become visible to the naked eye and this redness risks becoming permanent.Different factors can encourage and worsen this redness:

  • External factors, like UV rays, pollution, climate, food and stress cause the skin’s micro-circulation to speed up.
  • les facteurs internes comme les émotions, la consommation de café ou d’épices
  • Heredity: redness can occur in people who have vasoreactive skin, a skin characteristic that can be familial..
  • Skin ageing: from the age of 25 the skin becomes more sensitive to redness


Neutralising redness in sensitive skin

Certain active ingredients suitable for sensitive skin can be found in dermocosmetics. These include:

  • Vitamin C which strengthens the wall of delicate vessels.
  • Vitamin B which fortifies the skin to protect it from external irritants and climate variations.
To combat redness, your cosmetics routine must of course be adapted:
  • Use make-up removers without rinsing and avoid cleansing the face with water
  • Apply anti-redness moisturisers daily
  • Soothe the skin by using a thermal spring water spray mist
Dermatologists may also prescribe local antibiotics (creams, emulsions, etc.) or oral antibiotics, or even recommend laser treatment for persistent redness. Lastly, certain precautions are recommended daily: 
  • Watch your diet and limit your intake of alcohol, spicy foods, coffee, etc…
  • Protect yourself from climate variations by avoiding sudden hot-cold changes and using skincare products that contain a sunscreen
In any case, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist as soon as possible after the redness appears.
