In brief: Hot Flushes !
Poor core body temperature regulation is the origin of this annoying symptom. This may occur even if you are still menstruating as your thermostat readjusts.
However, consider checking your thyroid function and correcting poor dietary habits such as skipping meals and indulging in refined carbohydrates. Hypoglycemia kicks in and causes that flushing on your face and neck.
