When I’m upset, my chest gets completely red and blotchy.  It’s funny because I can keep my face looking normal and calm, but my chest will be a dead giveaway that something’s wrong.

If I were you, I would put makeup on my chest so that if the nerves cause you to get red the makeup will mask it.  I’ve heard the face and body makeup from MAC is great and will not transfer to clothing.

I am the same way! My red blotchy chest is a dead give-away, especially when I cry! In order to combat it before my wedding, I drank a TON of water, like, so much water!!!!! I also practiced yoga and meditation for about a month before the wedding. Then the day of, I just practiced some deep breathing and made sure to take moments to myself to keep calm and relaxed. I didn’t have any issues! Even my mom (gotta love the brutally honest mom!) said to me after the ceremony, “You didn’t turn red!” It was just a very intentional approach for a while leading up to the wedding.

My chest,  neck and sometimes my face get so red and blotchy, when I’m nervous! Sometimes, I actually even get hives and it usually takes about 2 hours for it to go away completely . My coworkers think it’s hilarious. Not gonna lie, I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to deal with this.

I have this same problem when I get nervous/anxious/mad.  Its horrible!  I cannot hid my emotions at all.  I decided on a destination wedding on the beach in Hawaii so there would be fewer people (9 of us).  Hopefully that helps b/c I am scared all of our pictures will be ruined by my blotchiness. I joke that I should have purchased a high neck wedding dress! haha

I get red splotches on my chest, neck, and face.  Other than coverup, I don’t know what to do for it…

Nikkimcq:  I get it when I”m on vacation in a hot place….and decided to have a DW in Mexico in the summer!  I was super worried about heat rash and am SOOOO happy that I didn’t get it on that trip!

Of course I can’t say exactly why it didnt’ happen, but I think it’s because I conditioned my body by doing hot yoga regularly before going to mexico.  Maybe you could try that?  Side bonus, it helps you deal with stress and is excellent for toning.  It’s really a win-win.
