It’s in the skin’s job description to protect us from external attacks, which it does. while it does that, it is our job to protect our skin. It is susceptible to extreme attacks if not adequately protected. One of the conditions the skin shows includes turning red. For those who have always wondered what that means, here it is:

When your face turns red,  it’s mostly a result of flushing or blushing. Blushing, as short as the word is,  what it encompasses is very wide. Let’s examine the condition so that you can have a better understanding of what it is, what causes it and how best to protect yourself from experiencing it in the future.

  What You Need to Know

Blushing is the most noticeable symptom of being embarrassed. it is important  that you know that this redness can really happen in any part of the skin, it’s not always only on the face.

The situation  happens more frequently in some people, In some people it happens frequently but doesn’t persist while in others it happens rarely but it persists whenever it does.

Your face turns red  when you feel a rush of anxiety, nervousness, stress, embarrassment, or even fear.

When you find yourself in any of these situations, your body in a form of involuntary response blushes, as a result of your blush your face then turns red assumedly by you, for no reason.

Biologically, this is controlled and instigated by the sympathetic nervous system, this is the part of the nervous system that controls all involuntary actions of the body including fight or flight. The sympathetic nervous system doesn’t just instigates this out of nowhere it’s always in response to anxiety, nervousness, stress, fear and so on.

When these changes occur in the body there is an increase in blood flow due to the widening of your blood vessels. The increased amount of blood flow eventually reaches the head and is shown on the face as blushes due to the structure of loops in the face.

When you find yourself in a constant state of stress, you will find that your face tends to stay more permanently red.

To deal with the situation of your face turning red for no reason you should try to live a more relaxed lifestyle, don’t over stress yourself or get unnecessarily bothered about situations that may crop up. Stay relaxed, I assure you whatever the situation is it’ll always eventually turn out fine.
