Why would my face be blotchy red when I wake up in the morning??

So many reasons... If you are noticing a difference in your skin when you first wake up in the morning that is not there the rest of the day, I would consider a possible irritant such as detergent, fabric softener, or material of your pillow. During the day the skin on your face isn't normally coming into contact with any fabric. Any products that you are using on your face at night may also be causing irritation.
