Stop Blushing

Blushing or going red is not that rare, actually in fairness in effects most people to some degree. However for some this can be an issue and can cause them problems in personal life, at work and in many other situations such as meeting people and even in everyday situations like asking for directions or being served in a shop or a restaurant.

Blushing or Erythrophobia is an unconscious reaction to an external stimulus which the manifests itself in a sudden wave of redness that can affect the face, neck and in some cases other areas of the upper chest area. This redness can and does happen very quickly. Sufferers of erythrophobia experience undue anxiety even though they realize their fear is irrational.

Hypnotherapy can help you in overcoming this in a number of ways:

  • I can help with the habitual blushing by changing the pattern of blushing
  • I can help you to reconditions you not to blush
  • I can help you to reduce and control the blood flow
  • I can help you to change your self-image connected to a blushing trigger

Some people can be aware of certain trigger that sets the blushing off such as blushing when talking to strangers, blushing when being served at a checkout by the opposite sex, blushing when the spot light is suddenly shone on you. This anxiety results from worry about being the focus of attention and the subject of embarrassment, it can seem as if the blushing has no specific trigger they simply find themselves blushing for no particular reason. However what is common to the vast majority of all people that experience blushing is they become so aware of it, they are almost waiting for it to happen, before the blushing even begins so self-conscious it then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, which in turn can even lead to avoiding the situations.

Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you control blushing to an extent where you will no longer turn red or feel that hot flushed sensation in your face, that tells you that you are blushing that in turn releases that embarrassing feeling where you think that everybody is looking at you. With hypnosis you can learn to turn down the blushing, control the blushing to the point where it simply disappears.

Hypnosis, NLP and with hypnotherapy I can show you how to tap into the part of your mind that regulates your unconscious mind which then in turn can help you with different reactions, responses, thoughts and behaviours around situations and ultimately your response in any situation to alleviate the blushing. Hypnosis can work with your unconscious mind to program in new, positive unconscious reactions to these external triggers to make blushing a thing of the past.

10 tips to stop blushing

The key to stopping your blushing on the spot is to slow down and try to relax your body. If you feel major blushing coming on, try these tips.

1. Breathe deeply and slowly

Taking slow, deep breaths can help relax the body enough to slow down or stop blushing. Because blushing occurs when the body is stressed, the key to reducing blushing is to decrease the amount of stress you’re experiencing.

2. Smile

Smiling — even if you’re stressed or embarrassed — may trick your body into believing that it’s less stressed, according to researchers.

In one study Trusted Source, scientists found that people who were made to do a stressful task while smiling had lower heart rates during the stress recovery period after the task. They said they felt better than people who held neutral faces during the task.

3. Cool off

Blushing tends to happen more intensely when you’re warm rather than cool. If you feel a blush coming on, take off some layers of clothing or move to a cooler place.

4. Make sure you’re hydrated

Drinking lots of water can help keep blushing at bay. Cool or cold water tends to help best. You can even try to prevent blushing by drinking something cool or cold before a stressful event.

5. Think of something funny

Distracting yourself from the blushing can sometimes make it easier to cope with it. Try to think of something that’ll make you laugh. This will make you smile, which can relax your body and fade the blushing.

6. Acknowledge the blushing

Many people who blush often tend to worry a lot about blushing. Acknowledging that you’re prone to blushing or that you’re actively blushing can sometimes help you feel more prepared to cope with it. If you can come to peace with blushing, you might even blush less.

7. Avoid blushing triggers

Some people who blush have specific triggers that make them more prone to blushing. For example, people with rosacea or people going through menopause should try to avoid long exposure to sunlight, caffeine, and spicy foods.

8. Wear makeup

Wearing green colour-correcting makeup can hide blushing better than other colors. It can be helpful to apply a green-coloured moisturizer or other makeup product to camouflage the redness on your cheeks if you know you’ll have to experience a stressful situation, such as a presentation or a meeting.

Shop for redness-control makeup.

9. Close your eyes for a minute or two

Pretend for a moment that the person or people around you who may be judging you for blushing don’t exist. This can relax you enough to the point that it prevents blushing or helps it fade.

10. Temporarily avoid eye contact

If you’re feeling like you’re being judged about blushing, try to avoid making eye contact with the person or people who are making you feel uncomfortable. Just as with the previous tip, this tip can help you relax enough so the blushing either never begins or fades away.
