Ruddy complexion is a pink or red complexion which is caused by a disease known as 'Rosacea'. This condition is commonly found more in women, rather than men, with light skin tones and the best solution of finding out if you suffer from this disease or not are by checking your complexion after a workout.  You will see that your complexion will have turned into a fiery red tone. It usually initiates with the redness and the swelling on the skin mainly in the facial region including the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. Rosacea can get worse if it not treated at the proper time. Thus, if you think you suffer from these symptoms, then visit a dermatologist instead of mistaking it for acne or eczema.

Although the medical experts do not seem to have much information about the causes of Rosacea, they still think that the following aspects play a major role in its development:

- Deformity in Facial Blood vessels:

Prominent blood vessels, constant redness and flushing are all brought about by abnormal blood vessels present in the facial region. The dermatologists consider this factor to be the most influential one in causing Rosacea.

- Light Complexion:

Lack of melanin can also be harmful at times as mostly light skinned people are seen to be suffering from this skin disease the most.

- Demodex Folliculorum:

This the medical name for those microscopic mites which dwell on the skin of every human being. However, people who experience Rosacea, apparently have a larger quantity of these mites compared to others. The fact whether the disease causes these mites or the mites give rise to this disease is still a mystery.

Rosacea can either be treated by topical medication, which can be applied directly to the skin, or drugs which can be taken in through the mouth. Topical medications involve the use of ointments which should be utilized once to twice on a daily basis to get rid of the swelling and he redness on the skin.

To get quick results, the use of antibiotics like tetracycline, minocycline and erythromycin is recommended. If you want to treat this disease naturally at home, then you can try apple cider vinegar. It can be purchased in both liquid and tablet form and is known to affect the bacteria in our intestines and the digestive enzymes in our body which in turn have a positive result on the skin.
