There are three types of Couperose (red) skin those include Hyperemia, Telangectasis and Rosacea. This skin type is typically sensitive to products. This is an inflammatory skin condition like Acne and you can find that Acne and Rosacea are sometimes found together. They have one common origin which is a chronic dilation and weakness of the capillary vessels. This is characterized by a localized reddening of the skin. Causes of these capillary problems include: Genetic (usually of Scandinavian heritage), frequent blushing (also due to stress, alcohol and hot fluids), hormonal/nervous disorders and digestive problems. Other external causes include: exposure to the elements (wind, sun, and cold), failure to wear sunscreen, physical and chemical irritants and temperature extremes (hot weather to air conditioning).
Hyperemia is a condition where you flush easily and quickly. This could develop into a more severe case such as Rosacea.
Telangectasis is a condition caused by dilated capillaries which appear as spidery veins on the surface of the skin.
Rosacea is a condition involving several factors: congestion of the capillaries, inflammation of the skin, chronic dilation of the capillaries, papule and pustule formations (acne) and dehydration due to the increase in the surface temperature.
