Excessive pinkness on the face

As of late, this has been driving me nuts. My face will go pink after sitting for just a while, and will only subside a bit when I lie down. My guess would be that it's a circulatory problem, or allergies (I have sinus problems during spring, summer, and fall since I'm in the allergy capital of the Southeast). Either way, any advice on countering or even concealing this problem?

It looks out of place as I have pale arms, a pale neck, and a flush face after all.

Re: Excessive pinkness on the face

Could it be Rosecea?

I was suprised when my dermatologist told me I had rosecea? I went to see her for a totally unrelated problem & within the first two minutes of her being in the room, she addressed the redness in my checks & chin. Obviously I noticed my face was red & flushed all the time, but never considered treating it until she told me I could reduce the redness with a prescription cream?

I just started the regimen.

She said also to try cosemetics with minerals because it tends to conceal the redness better than heavy concealers? Good luck
