You may be among the countless individuals who want to stop blushing. Many people show their emotions on their face. Excessive blushing can be quite a problem in many social and professional situations. However, it doesn't have to be.

Problems with Blushing

There are significant problems that people face when they have difficulty controlling the flush of color to the facial area. The color can affect the face, neck and chest as well. The challenges this condition presents can be uncomfortable.

Getting red in the face is typically associated with embarrassment and this association can spill over into your everyday life with negative results. Consider the employee who blushes easily when interacting with management. Managers may feel that the employee has a reason to be embarrassed or has cause for worry.

Worry and Facial Blushing

The problem with blushing is that it worsens as you think about the condition. As you enter a new situation, you may begin to feel flushed. This leads to your face becoming red. As you focus on your face reddening, the condition gets worse.

Worry is emotional sabotage in your efforts to stop blushing. The more you consciously fret over the condition, the worse it becomes. It is a vicious cycle that is difficult to break.

Blush Reactions: All in the Mind

You can take steps to take control of facial blushing beginning with your mind. Though many may think that excessive blushing is automatic, it can be controlled with the right interventions.

The condition is closely tied to the workings of your subconscious mind. Once you gain control of your subconscious, you will see results. The secret is to find ways to overcome your worry and fear in the process of overcoming your blushing problem.

Treatments for Blushing

Several treatments for blushing problems have been developed to help people deal with this troublesome condition. Medications, medical interventions and hypnotherapy are popular choices. There are some things to consider when deciding which approach is right for you.


Two medications can be used to treat reddening of the face. Beta-blockers are commonly used in the treatment of anxiety. As the anxiety diminishes, so does the redness. Clonidine is a medication that keeps the blood vessels from expanding. Less blood flows to the face, reducing the flush of color.

Medical Intervention

A more drastic approach is to have endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy. ETS surgery disconnects nerves in the face associated with blushing. This intervention is typically reserved for severe cases or for individuals who are have high profile careers.


Hypnotherapy is ideal as a treatment for facial blushing. This approach includes visiting a professional therapist or self-hypnosis. This treatment has no side effects and it works to help you gain control of the condition without invasive interventions.

Blushing is a problem that many people share. If you obsess over the condition, it only becomes worse. The best place to stop blushing may be in the mind.
