how can i reduce the overall redness in my face?*PICS*

i hope i came to the right section. I just recovered from pretty severe acne and i still have a few red marks, but thats not my main concern. my main concern is my overall redness in my face

BEFORE

AFTER

this picture doesnt show how red i normally am. somedays my face isnt that red at all and some days my face is really red. i stopped using topicals. i only use them to spot treat certain zits that come in. so i came here looking for some lotions or something that can help?

I've seen people recommend V-Beam for this. I haven't done it myself, but you might want to look into it at least.

Seems like you have beer in 2nd pic. That's why you're red :)

Anyway, do you use sunscreen?

i pm-ed you ..

in your after picture.. i dont think the red is bad, but if the red could be more (example : in the hot season) than the picture .. i think it's very disturbing

I have the same problem, and everything I read says that it's not a result of acne, or Accutane, or too much benzoyl peroxide, but developing Rosacea. Apparently, medically speaking, any redness in the face is Rosacea.
