Below you can read the most common causes of red cheeks.

1. Red cheeks high blood pressure

Red cheeks due to high blood pressure is a common cause, also called hypertension. Do you suffer from a red head or red spots on your face? Then it is certainly wise to visit the doctor. This can check whether your red cheeks are caused by high blood pressure

Red cheeks due to high blood pressure often cause other complaints in addition to redness in the face. Such as nosebleeds, heavy sweating and palpitations. It is good to know that high blood pressure is caused by an underlying problem such as an illness. Other causes are the (excessive) use of alcohol, hormones or the use of certain medications.

2. Red face due to aging

The most common consequence of aging is wrinkles. But did you know that red skin on the face also worsens as we get older? In women, menopause is often the culprit. This special period not only provides... dry skin face. The skin is also more sensitive and can therefore turn red more quickly.

To prevent rosacea cheeks in older skin, it is best to choose mild cosmetics. Care products that mainly contain high-quality, effective ingredients. Without harmful substances that can provoke unwanted reactions. Also take a look at our range natural anti-aging products.

3. Red cheeks due to external factors

In addition to red cheeks due to high blood pressure, medication, aging or allergies, external factors can also be a cause. For example, due to temperature differences. This is because the blood vessels in your face constrict when it's cold, causing congestion. This reaction is also called vasoconstriction and causes the red skin on your face. Heat causes the blood vessels to dilate, resulting in a heated and red face. Other external factors include spicy food or stress. With rosacea cheeks, these external factors can have a greater influence and the redness lasts longer.

4. Red cheeks (early) pregnancy

During pregnancy, the amount of blood in the skin increases. This ensures increased blood circulation. For some people it remains a healthy blush, while others suffer from small red burst vessels on the face. This can cause this skin to become red, especially on the cheek area.

Treat your skin extra carefully during this period and try to avoid friction as much as possible. Instead of a chemical one peeling face, add Lingonberry Bright Mask to your treatment once a week. This mild fruit acid peeling is perfectly suitable for sensitive skin and also works remove pigmentation spots (pregnancy mask).

5. Sensitive skin: allergies, rashes or eczema

With sensitive skin, the top layer is very vulnerable. A red cheek condition is primarily caused by a weakened skin barrier. This protective layer ensures that your skin is resistant to external influences.

For example, if you use too aggressive or synthetic care products, an alarm signal is created in the form of inflammatory mediators. These can then trigger an allergic reaction that causes vasodilation or swelling of the blood vessels. Resulting in annoying redness and rash.

In this case it absolutely applies: less is more. Only use mild and soothing products in your beauty products. The simpler the composition, the better.

A disrupted skin barrier can also trigger eczema more quickly. Do you suffer from red facial skin with flakes and/or itching? Then read the best tips here eczema face.

6. Red cheeks due to skin problems such as acne

The skin can also become red due to acne. It is quite possible for small pimples to develop on rosacea cheeks. But this is different from when you really suffer from acne with pimples and blackheads. It is important to distinguish between these two different skin problems. Oily, acne-prone skin requires different treatment and care products than rosacea skin.
