Whether your face flushes easily, is constantly red, or changes from day to day, facial redness can really make you crazy. In my holistic dermatology practice, it's one of the symptoms my patients find most upsetting by far. Acne sufferers may have background redness all over or, even worse, splotchy red patches.

Anyone with sensitive skin knows the struggles with redness. Even when you think you've miraculously gotten rid of your flushed skin for a night, you wake up the next morning and there it is again, glaring back at you. Was it because you washed your face so late at night? Or was it because you tried a new recipe for a make-it-yourself mask? Is it actually rosacea , or is your complexion just taking the rosy-cheek thing to a whole new level? We asked dermatologists why some of us can never seem to get the red out.
