    Speaking as an attorney who does DUI defense, no one can really answer that question. There are so many reasons a person's face gets flushed that it is difficult to determine the cause at any given point in time.

    Asian flush is a low tolerance to the chemicals that get released during the breakdown of alcohol in your body.

    Actually it is predominant in the Asian population but it can happen to anyone. You might want to look it up.

    Re: Flushed face from alcohol

    Alcohol dilates blood vessels, and that will make a red face look redder.

    Flushed skin and broken capillaries on the face are signs of chronic alcoholism.

    Also a person who suffers from Rosacea will have increased reddness from the alcohol causing dilation of blood vessels also.

    Hey, Arememom, that's information I could use. How does alcohol dilate blood vessels? I thought it thins the blood.
