Any good, inexpensive products to take the redness out of your skin?

I have been having this problem for a while. I get red for no apparent reason. I am not embarassed or anything. even my arms and sometimes my legs. it just gets on my nerves because it takes forever to go away and i get hot and it borderline burns.

I am extremely sensitive and have very fair skin.. anything can make me breakout. i am also allergic to sulfur. makeup wont help because i am allergic to it.

Skin redness can be a problem regardless of skin color, but it is definitely more prominent in those with pale skin like yourself. My mother and sister have very pale skin, and any kind of bump or scrape shows up as very red. It is also easier to see when they are blushing, or when they encounter something they are allergic to.

Without knowing more details about your skin, and what may be causing the redness, it is almost impossible to determine why it unexpectedly turns red. Does anyone in your family also have the same skin tone and skin issue of unexpected redness? If so I would talk with them to see if they know what causes it because it may be the same thing that causes your skin to turn red. If you don't have anyone else in your family that has the same condition, then the best thing to do would probably be to consult with a dermatologist. They are going to be the most knowledgeable about what is causing the redness, and will be able to provide advice and treatment for the condition.

Also, it might not be a bad idea to visit the American Academy of Dermatology website. They have a special A to Z section that is completely dedicated to skin conditions, the causes, and the types of treatment available. It is easy to navigate, and they provide plenty of pictures and media to refer to.

As far as not being able to wear makeup because of allergens, you may want to consider using makeup products that do not contain toxic chemicals. I recently read an article in Science World Magazine about a company that makes makeup products that are natural and completely free of any types of toxins or chemicals that can be harmful. The company is called Ava Anderson. Before you go buying and applying any makeup, however, I would still suggest that you consult with a dermatologist to see if it would be safe.

I hope you find the cause of your skin redness, and no longer have to suffer the embarrassment that comes with skin conditions. I am confident that you will find a viable solution. :)
