Reddened skin is due to increased blood flow. In the case of short-term, temporary redness, the cause is usually physical exertion, excitement or stress. However, redness becomes a cosmetic problem if it is permanent and disturbs the complexion significantly. Redness of the skin is an unpleasant side effect, especially for people with dry and sensitive skin. Due to the disturbed and weak skin barrier, the skin is more easily irritated, which can cause it to become inflamed. Rich care with protective properties and soothing active ingredients such as lavender or rose can provide relief.
A complexion that can appear especially in mature skin is couperose. This is a connective tissue weakness that leads to enlarged veins in the facial area and can be a precursor to rosacea, a chronic inflammation of the skin. Here, too, it is important to strengthen the skin barrier in order to minimize inflammatory processes.
