Question What is the scientific name for “naturally red cheeks” (not Rosacea)

I’m wondering if anyone could help me with this one.
Since just about any “condition” real or imaginary has a scientific name I was wandering what is the scientific name for “naturally red cheeks” and I don’t mean those which are red due to a pathological reason like Rosacea or high blood pressure or sudden changes in temperature …or any other similar reasons. There are some people (I have to admit not so many) who have/had naturally red cheeks all their lives and the color does not change or is not in anyway influenced as I said bay any pathological reason or caused by the environment. I don’t really know if this might be related to pigmentation or not, I’ve read an article which said it could be that the capillary are closer to the surface …still no name for it. I suppose this would fall into “Dermatology Trivia “, but if any could help with it I would be much obliged.
