It's probably erythema, which means skin products won't help it. In most cases it heals with time but you can speed it up with light treatments such as IPL or V-beam.

I have scarring that is still red after 2.5 years, it looks okay in the morning but it's very red late at night or when I drink alcohol. I figured it's because my skin is thinner where the scarring is so when my face becomes flushed it's more noticeable in those areas. I did two IPL treatments but it didn't really help. 

For what it's worth, your skin looks perfect to me.
