Green makeup: Green makeup will cancel out the redness. Also eucerin redness relief with a licorice extract can calm the appearance of red skin. The could be used together if desired.

ECZEMA: Typical eczema often presents this way. It is genetic and related to dry skin. Often there are relatives with asthma and eczema. Allergy tests are not helpful & may be harmful. Foods are rarely a factor.Elimination diets may be harmful. Soaking with water followed by application of vaseline or aquaphor is useful. There are good creams such as eucerin, aveeno, (oatmeal) etc. Might need rx.

Multiple causes : Redness on the cheeks can be from eczema, rosacea or mild keratosis pilaris. See a dermatologist to evaluate it and prescribe treatment. In general, using sensitive skin and unscented soaps, moisturizers and sunscreens helps minimize redness on the cheeks.

Yes, see your physician as skin as well as other hormonal/endocrine causes may be a factor. But always cover up from the sun.
