What Causes Red Blotches On Face?

   

While makeup can temporarily hide red blotches on your face, getting to the bottom of skin unevenness is always the best option. What causes red blotches on face? Let’s take a closer look.

1. Skin Allergies

One of the most common causes of red blotches on face is an allergic reaction to a beauty product. The problem becomes worse when the reaction spreads to your face. You can easily avoid an allergic reaction on your face by testing beauty products on the inside of your wrist before you apply them to your face.

2. Rosacea

Rosacea is a common cause of facial redness and red blotches. In fact, it impacts 14 million people in the U.S. It often starts with redness on your cheeks, nose, and forehead and then expands to the neck, scalp, and chest.

3. Weather Conditions

Extremely cold or extremely hot weather can cause red blotches. Windburn is also a known cause. It’s common in those that participate in winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.

4. Hives

Hives vary from person to person but these red bumps are often elevated and smooth. The development of hives tends to run in families.

Treatments For Red Blotches on Face

-Aloe vera reduces inflammation. Apply the gel directly to impacted areas.

-Remove skin irritants that could be causing allergies.

-Use a topical facial redness cream made with green tea.

Of course, I recommend Zax’s Facial Redness Cream.
