If you have a blush that doesn’t seem to go away and you constantly are red in the face, chances are you have a skin condition called rosacea that is quite common for fair skinned people between the ages of 30 and 50. Many things can trigger rosacea once you have it so it is essential that you know some of the causes so that you know how to control it so it doesn’t flare up at embarrassing moments.

What Causes Rosacea?

There are many things that can cause the blood to rush to your face and that does not mean you have rosacea but if the redness turns to small blood vessels that become very visible then you probably have rosacea. Let’s look at some of the common causes so that you can avoid them whenever possible:

Emotions Play a Role

Stress and anxiety play a major role in causing rosacea. If you are angry or upset, chances are your face will reflect your emotions and become red and flushed. Any sudden change in emotion can trigger an episode such as crying, laughing, yelling or euphoria. If you are called on in class or suddenly embarrassed by a situation, your face will show it by flushing.
