In brief: Hot toddy.
Redness caused by cold and wind while skiing will resolve quickly, usually overnight.
Redness due to sunburn will take longer, so remember to apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion, since sunburn is much more common at high altitude. Either way, don't worry about the redness; have a nice warm adult beverage and relax.
