Can you tell me how to make my skin less red?

Depends on reason: for red skin. If due to dry skin: 1. Hydrate well with water. 2. Avoid lengthy or hot showers. 3. Use high SPF sunscreen consistently. 4. Avoid harsh or deodorant soaps - think hypoallergenic & unscented. 5. Only need frequent soap/cleanser on areas that are dirty, oily or create body odor. 6. Use moisturizer as needed. 7. Aim for 8 hours of sleep per night. 8. Maintain a healthy diet.

Flaking skin: Flaky skin can have environmental causes, such as temperature extremes, as cold weather outside and forced-air heat inside combine to rapidly dry out the skin. However, flaky skin can also be a response to extended exposure to heat, such as in hot baths, heated swimming pools, hot tubs, and saunas. In addition, certain drugs and chemicals can dry out the skin and cause flaking.

None: Avoid caustic soaps. Use emollients or moisturizers, especially after soaking in water. Diet not relevant. Consuming large volumes of water will only produce large volumes of urine. I favor ceramide creams for many people. These are found in Eucerin, Aveeno, Nutrogena, CeraVe, generics.

Doubtful: I doubt that "adderall" would be associated with skin turning red, though there can be an allergic reaction associated with this medication with a localized or diffuse skin rash.
