Being fair skinned my cheeks always seem to turn red when embarrassed or angered, bad. It seems for a while now my cheeks are continually red and sometimes itchy. I'm wanting to purchase come "red relief" cream/serum but am having a hard time discovering one animal friendly. Eucerin Redness Relief was a top choice,until.... "According to Eucerin Dermatological Skincare, this skin cream is not tested on animals. However, product safety tests are conducted using in-clinic and laboratory testing and in-home research"<br>
that doesn't make me feel all warm n fuzzy inside....Any suggestions?<br><img alt="" src="http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/395605_2221577479236_1841692050_1463929_44258113_n.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Does your skin seem extra dry or anything like that as well? I don't know of any products, but I wonder if chamomile tea would work? Like, set a couple tea bags in some hot water for a couple minutes then place them on your cheeks. Maybe aloe might work, too.

Could it be a food allergy to wheat, dairy, or alcohol? Sometimes getting flush can be a result of that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br>
I'm not a big fan of creams and serums and beauty-in-a-bottle type fixes, I think if your face goes red, and it can't be adjusted through diet, then that's just a part of who you are <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

The only place my skin will get dry is right in the middle of my forehead haha but other then that no, towards the 'too' dry. I'll try the tea bags and aloe. hmm i dont eat dairy, and i don't remember the last time i've had a 'drink', wheat is no more then usual, since i changed my diet soy had been more of a role in it but, i've never had any complications from it ie digestion ect....or any other food for that matter. But of coarse that dosent mean that my body doesn't have some few hidden tricks as i cont. to get older haha

Have you looked at Kiss My Face or Lush products? They have vegan facial creams, although I'm not sure if they have exactly what you are looking for.<br><br>
Also: you are adorable and I love your hair!!

This is a common symptom of Rosacea. I used to try otc remedies for years but mine got much better once I got a prescription cream (Finacea) and am followed by a dermatologist.<br><br>
I also avoid having the car heater point at my face, avoid super hot water, etc. There is a long list of things you can do to avoid Rosacea flare-ups, if that's what it is.<br><br>
Those cheeks look pretty bad and painful--can you see a derm?

I totally forgot about Kiss My Face, Ill have to look into that! I'm just looking for something to 'calm' it down. I know I'll always be red bc I always have been. You can automatically tell when I'm freezing, angry, embarrassed bc by face instantly starts to glow lol it sucks. But i guess that's just the Irish in me. And thank you for the compliment! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> :: blush::<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

They don't hurt at all actually. You should see my other cheeks!!! haha j/k <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Sometimes my chin will itch but, I think that might be from some allergic reaction, from something idk.I use to think it was from work (Laboratory) but we don't use any latex there anymore. I actually have plans on calling a Derm. here soon for other questionable skin conditions, ya know " whats-this'?!" n such haha

First off: hey! Look at that pretty lady!<br>
Secondly: in my treatment of acne, my mild rosacea cleared almost completely. I stopped using commercial cleansers, started using a baking soda mask about twice a week (I had oily skin), Apple cider vinegar with water (8/1 ratio) twice daily and aloe, lots of it twice daily. My skin is the best its ever looked, not oily anymore, only break out when I'm sick and even then its not bad at all, and my rosacea is next to nothing now.

RIght back at ya. ; )<br><br>
Ill have to try to baking soda mask, my skin has seems to have gotten more and more angry as I have gotten older....my whole 28 years. ha Ive started using Aloe everyday and it has helped calm town the itching and inflammation that would happen. I work in a lab and if we used latex gloves there I would no doubt claim i have grown allergic to them bc of this. But like i said I carry my aloe with me and but it on after washing my face in the morning and through out the day ( depending on what kinda day I am having.<br>
I tried the tea bags, and well that was just akward. They got cool too fast and I had tea dripping down my neck ( haha yes i did squeeze them out but, i still wanted them hot so i didn't play with them alot) It was fun never the less <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Lol I'm sorry for laughing but that just seems so comical and like something that I would do. I hope the tea bags didn't end up staining your face or neck. Glad the aloe is giving you some relief for now with a few of your symptoms.
