Blushing can be embarrassing, but most of us are affected by it. It only becomes a problem when we or others become aware of it as a problem. Excessive blushing can lead to sensitisation of the reddening process and may lead to rosacea later in life. Quite a lot of rosacea sufferers report they were prone to blushing as a child or at other previous stages in their life.

Blushing may be the result of hormonal triggering due to situations or events, but once the reddening process has bee triggered then some of the same vascular and cellular processes are initiated as in rosacea. For many, it is a transitory process and they may grow out of it. However, for those who continually blush, which progress into a lack of confidence or a perceived nervousness by others, which in turn affects job prospects and relationships; then they should try and control the process. Firstly we would say by trying to control the visible output through using Rosacure® and Synchrorose® (the clinical strength option) before attempting more drastic measures.

We have helped a number of blushers to control their symptoms.


To some, flushing may be an extended blush, but to others it is an extended reddening as a result of particular triggers, which can be hormonal, environmental (temperature) or dietary. Again, this may not concern many but if one has family history of rosacea then you should look to try and reduce flushing and the resultant potential for hyper sensitisation of the reddening process.

Many rosacea sufferers state they became flushers before they became rosacea sufferers but this is not always the case. For those it is often difficult to distinguish when flushing became pre-rosacea prolonged flushing and when it actually became rosacea. For some, the point at which they have rosacea is only when they are finally diagnosed as having rosacea. Up until that point they thought they just had ‘time of the life’ flushes or were just of ‘high colour’.

Again, Rosacure® and Synchrorose® (the clinical strength option) helped people who flush for many reasons ranging from when they drink alcohol through to hormonal flushing as it targets the visible symptoms and does not differentiate or try to target the underlying triggers.
