What is sensitive skin with facial redness?
Sensitive skin with redness is skin that reacts excessively, reddening and perceiving unpleasant sensations (tightness, burning, tingling, itching), in response to stimuli that usually do not provoke this reaction.
Repeated exposure to these triggers causes vasodilation of the facial skin capillaries. Initially, this redness (blushing) is transient; it can be defined as a hot sensation accompanied by visible reddening of the skin.
OVEREXPOSURE TO THE SUN
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AND TOBACCO
ABRUPT CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE
STRESS OR EMOTIONAL SITUATIONS
HORMONAL CHANGES (MENOPAUSE)
Over time, redness (or erythrosis) becomes persistent, as the capillaries remain in a state of permanent vasodilation. Without adequate treatment, the condition can progress to more severe stages, such as rosacea subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic) or subtype 2 (papulopustular).

The unpleasant burning or itching sensations on the face can have a great impact on the well-being of people with sensitive skin and facial redness. Redness also has a visible effect that, according to its degree, can affect the normal course of social or working life.
