Help - My skin is really red.

Recommended Posts

Hey all, my name's David, i just joined the forum. I'm 16 turning 17 this year.

I don't know if it's classified as acne, but the skin on my face is really red. It's been like that since i start high school 5 years ago. I'm of asian decent, and I hardly ever get sunburnt, unless i lay on the beach for 3 or 4 hours. I also frequently get pimples.

A friend suggest that i use 'Clean and Clear' oil controller toner and self foaming facial wash. I started using that a couple of days ago, but it really stung my skin. Since i have sensitive skin, i'm hesitant to go on the regime, and use benzoyl peroxide.

Is there anything I can do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try cutting back on the harsh cleansers and start using something more subtle like soap. Wash twice a day as normal, but only apply spot creams (if you do that is) at night, but after both washes make sure to moisturize. A moisturizer with SPF for the day would be best.

Or you could just go cold turkey and let your skin heal for a bit before starting again, this would also help to find out what's making you red, your regimen or discolouration from past acne.
