I have the same problem, I have redness on my skin due to past acne scars. What i've recently been using is "Origins Serum by Dr. Andrew Weils". It's a serum that helps reduce redness and actually heal the skin, making it brighter and more even. I've been using this for a few weeks now and it's helped even out my skin alot! In addition, it didn't break me out which I found awesome oh and I love the smell!
Hope this helps!
I have rosacea. And I know that companies can't make claims about some things but since I started using Ole Henricksen's Truth Serum and the cleansing cloths, my redness is almost completely gone.
It depends on the cause of the redness. I know my redness is usually from one of the two causes:
- external: my cheeks get wind chapped in the fall/winter, combine that with dry indoor heat makes my face red because it's fragile/thin/extra sensitive. In this case a gentle cleanser and creamy moisturizer helps. Enzyme masks improves skin renewal so my face feel plump and hydrated instead of thin/fragile and flaky.
- internal: when I don't drink enough water or eat too much spicy food, the dehydration or inflammation will make my face redder than usual and cause pimples. In that case, I drink more water, nix the spicy food and eat more juicy/cooling food (cucumber, yogurt, pear, watermelon etc).
Those are the common causes and a place to start, but you need to figure out what caused it if you want to fix it (instead of just cover it).
