face red in certain areas

Recommended Posts

For some reason, my face turns red in the cheekbone area and some parts of my forehead. It usually happens when it is really hot outside. Does anyone know why?

also, when my face would look normal color, then I take a picture of myself, the picture comes out.. WIERD.. like it shows red blotches on my skin, especially when i use flash. Hm.. what could this be?

That is a VERY VERY common, almost a usual sideaffect of acne thats cured or being cured. It's a stage that your skin goes through that is called hyperpigmentation. Which can last up to 18 months after treatment. It usually happens when the skin is exposed to too much heat or cold and is when it's irritated. Not sure if there is much you can do about it tho. Just wait i guess... =/
