Please help or give some advice

Recommended Posts

Please help me with the redness on my face. Someone please tell me what I have to do to get rid of this. It's annoying me very greatly. I haven't been using sunblock or moisturizer when I go out, so that probably has contributed to this.

I'm thinking of buying some Nuetrogena Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 15 to help out in the morning now (if that's even a good idea) since I'm in the sun all day. I've honestly never used moisturizer, so that's why I'm asking.

Would icing my face work at all in this situation?

Well here is a picture of me, so please tell me if this is Rosacea or if its just the aftereffects of using the 2.5% BP and not using sunblock or moisturizer (which I'm hoping).

Your face doesn't even look red to me!

I'm not a professional or anything but it certainly doesn't look like rosacea. I'd say it was just not using sunscreen that's giving you a bit higher colour, as it doesn't look too bad. If you're really self-conscious you could try using facial colour corrector- it's a green liquid that neutralizes red pigment to give you a paler complexion. You could try it under moisturizer/ suncream.

So if I use a mosturizer with sun block, would you think my face would even out and the slightly sunburned parts I have would fade away? Hell, maybe I'll get a nice tan from it.

Anyways, Thanks for the response.

I'd go see a dermatologist. It looks like very VERY mild rosacea... as if it were starting. So if you tackle it fast, maybe you'll control it and prevent it from advancing any further.

Would it be a good idea to lay off the BP for a few days to see if the redness goes down or should I just stick to moisturizers?
