It's possible you could have rosecia as well. Perhaps you have really sensitive skin and the products that you use are causing you to bed red. For a while I had dermatitis, I was using the wrong laundry detergent, shave gel, and cleansers. That could be your problem. Perhaps you should see a derm and get their advice.

It sounds like Rosacea to me too. If you would like to try and cover with a foundation, I currently recommend Estee Lauder's Maximum cover SFP 15 foundation. It has great coverage for red areas and gives a smooth finish. You can use it as a concealer too. I use it in light which is the lightest shade they do and it doesn't match my skin tone exactly but it's OK until I can find a better one. Check out more info here:

Let us know how you get on if you try it.

i don't know. my skin was just 2-months ago sun-burned red color because i had used a crapload of products in a small amount of time that ended up really damaging my skin. i was using bp, sa, scrubs, masks, exfoliating pads and ended up looking like a freak.

but now, two months later, after changing my diet and my cleansing regimen, my skin looks and feels alot healthier.

i would wholeheartedly recommend that you find a GENTLE cleanser (no alcohol, no bp, no sa, no little scrub particles, no residual film) and a non-comedogenic moisturizer and just do that for a while. a very long while. especially since you don't have acne now, this hopefully will help return your skin back to normal, but you have to be patient.

good luck!
