My face is RED...like tomato red. I put foundation on and I think I cover most of it up, but when I took a picture of myself today the rest of my body was "beige" but my face was beet red!
To avoid breaking out I scrub my face 2x week with that St. Ives scrub. It works well. Every day otherwise I use the Clearasil daily facewash. I don't put anything else harsh on my face (ie. acne treatment) because my face gets really dried out (its dry enough as it is). When I put my makeup on, I first put on a mositurizer then my foundation. I Don't understand, I know I have more of a pink tint to my skin tone (as does my mother) but why am I beet red, and just in the face? What can I do about it? I've thought about skin brighteners but I believe those are for age spots only. PLEASE HELP!
It is possible I am allergic, but I definitely do not have rosacea. I go to a dermatologist 3-4 times a year and hehas never said anything about it. Its not really blochy like rosacea, but my whole face. Maybe I am allergic to something...maybe I should wash my face with something natural? any ideas?
Well I would do a test first. Take your facial products and put a dab of each product on the back of your hand or your arm. Leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. If you see a red spot that means you're either allergic or its just too harsh for your skin. As far as natural products go I would just pick something off the shelf and try it. I'm allergic to many things so I thought I would try using natural products since I was allergic to my deodorant, shampoo, etc. I didn't know if I would have a reaction or not but I had to try something to find out. Everything I tried was fine. The health store I went to said if I was allergic to any product I could take it back so if you do try something new, ask an employee if they have a return policy.
