Flushed skin is often a visual sign of embarrassment, anxiety, or being too hot. However, frequent flushing can sometimes indicate an underlying medical condition. Flushed skin occurs when the hundreds of tiny blood vessels just beneath the skin dilate, or widen. When these blood vessels expand, they rapidly fill with more blood, which can make the skin appear red or pink. This effect is more noticeable in regions of the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin, such as the cheeks and chest.
