Why Does My Face Flush When I Feel Sexy?

Screaming O Studio Collection

We all recognize that telltale red flush of the cheeks, the one your roommate sports for two full days after her boyfriend visits for the weekend. It’s hard to miss – and just as difficult to hide – but where does it come from?

Pink cheeks is merely part of the sexual excitement cycle, when excitement increases the heart rate and raises the blood pressure enough to cause the skin to develop a nice hue as though you’d just embarrassed yourself in front of a live audience.

This is called vasocongestion, and your cheeks aren’t the only body part that turns red! Often your chest, feet and hands will flush as the mental excitement that comes with sexual activity spreads to the physical, and even the woman’s clitoris and vagina will darken into a deep pink!

Approximately 75 percent of women experience this, while just 25 percent of men, and it can take up to 2 hours for it to fade! We all can remember at least one person we’ve fooled around with who ended up heading home with a bright red face, right?

One of the many reasons why the Screaming O Studio Collection is a must-have addition to your makeup bag – the mini vibes are chic, discreet and give you a better fresh-faced, blushy look than any fancy cosmetic can give!
