In brief: Depends on cause
The most common cause of chronic facial redness is rosacea.
There is not one best way to treat rosacea. Avoiding the triggers such as sun exposure and spicy foods are beneficial. Oral and topical medications can be very helpful, as can laser and light treatments to reduce redness and prominent facial blood vessels (telangiectasias). See your doctor or dermatologist for evaluation.
