Three common causes for a person’s face to turn red is too much sun, too much alcohol, or too much spice. In short, when it becomes “too much” for the skin to handle, it turns red. Sometimes this redness can last a few minutes. For some it can last up to a few hours. Then there are the skin conditions that leave the face red all day. It is important to know why the skin is turning red and then people will know what to do about it.
The sun is a powerful friend and foe. While it gives the world energy, it also zaps it away. A person who stays in the sun too long may feel their internal temperature start to increase. This is when a woman or man’s face may become red. This redness can be so severe that red domed bumps occur. If you are going in the sun wear sunscreen and a large hat at the minimum.
Alcohol can be tricky to gauge. One helpful way to find out how much exactly is too much is to write down when there is a face flare up. Write down how many beers were consumed or which types of alcohol. This way people can still enjoy the things they like to do such as have a few drinks with the co-workers on a Friday afternoon.
As with the sun and with alcohol, spicy foods can mess with the internal temperature of a person and this generally manifests itself as redness of the skin. But again by keeping track of how much spicy food is consumed and what kinds, people can start to enjoy their spicy foods again even if it does cause a bit of redness of the face.
