Yin deficiency can cause redness in the face

We always find rosy cheeks on children to be cute, but it could be frustrating if there are signs of flushing cheeks on adults. From Chinese medicine perspective, redness in the face is usually a sign of heat in your body, and mostly as a result of yin deficiency. This type of heat is called asthenic heat, accompanying symptoms are heat flushed cheeks in the afternoon, dry skin, night sweats, dry mouth, hot palms, hot chest, yellow urination, dry stool, and even constipation.

There are big temperature fluctuations during spring season, skin will easily be stimulated and show signs of redness, however do not jump to conclusion and assume your body is hot and have a cup of herbal tea. Even if you decided to drink herbal tea, it should be in moderation. What you should do instead is to nourish yin to get rid the heat caused by yin deficiency. Then the redness will naturally subside.
