Five Things that Could be Causing Redness on the Face (and How to Treat Them)

With aging comes changes in our skin. Wrinkles and age spots are expected, but what about redness? Why does it occur and how do we treat it?

Redness is just as common in mature skin as other discoloration or texture changes, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. The great news is that it's easy to treat once you know the root cause. 

It’s very likely that redness in mature skin is caused by one or several of the following five ailments.

Causes of Redness


Mature skin loses hydration more rapidly than younger skin, which can lead to a redder tone. If your skin is flakey or rough in addition to pink or red in appearance, you can assume the discoloration is due to lack of moisture.


Any kind of irritation can lead to redness due to the response of histamine, a chemical in skin that activates during an immune response. Skin can become more sensitive with maturity and therefore you may notice redness due to irritation more frequently as you age.

Poor circulation

Another ailment of more mature skin includes poor circulation. While you don’t always think of your skin as being impacted, the sensitive facial area can actually experience discoloration and dryness due to poor circulation and blood flow.


Inflammation is another symptom of the body’s natural immune processes that can increase as we age. Redness occurs due to inflammation similar to irritation and dryness.

Sun damage

Damage from UVA and UVB rays can lead to a sunburn that eventually fades, as you likely already know. However, consistent sun damage can lead to more permanent redness and other discoloration.

Other, more serious, causes of redness can include rosacea, acne, psoriasis, or shingles. If you suspect a more serious cause of facial redness, check in with a dermatologist to find treatment.
