Try a touch up powder with a yellow tone – the yellow decreases redness.  I use Benefit’s Bluff Dust, which is great.  You could just keep it in your purse for touch ups before pictures.  They make a special litte one I think for just that purpose.  It works really well, and doesn’t look mask-y.  Good luck!

This is an easy fix in Photoshop, if you aren’t able to prevent it in real life. Open your photo in Photoshop and go to Image->Adjustment->Hue/Saturation. Then choose the Reds channel from the drop down menu and change the Hue to about 15 (generally a range of 5-15 is best, play around with it and see what works). I have the same skin as you and this fixes it every time without changing the rest of the photo.

Well I have had that problem too.  Kinda like an allergic reaction somewhat but only on the skin.  Flushing and heat and a rash type look.

I’m fair also.  I just take a mild benadryl and an ibuprofen before a very important event and try to focus on relaxing. 

I once had this right before a job interview five years ago one hour before.  This is how I found my fix..and btw, I’m in the medical arena so I asked a few of my medical friends and they said to try this.

It worked.  Mainly the relaxing and the easy breathing.  The ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and helps with the redness.  Benadryl can also relax you a bit too.  Or a bit much if you’re sensitive to medicines like I am.

Call your doc or also see a dermatologist if this is a really important concern and this happens often.  They can give you maybe a better alternative or a prescription for something.

Well you will be a beautiful bride!  And only a blushing (midly )bride..lol!  I also once did "the breakout red thing" right before I went onstage at Miss Tennessee.  I was wearing a WHITE evening gown (OMG!).  Had to put some ice on my chest and put a towel over my gown to just get the redness gone before I went onstage.  I was shivering in the lights..kinda funny now to look back tho. 

Wishing you love and happiness.

I’m so glad you posted about this!  My neck and chest get all splotchy like that if I get very angry, upset, or stressed out.  Here’s hoping I don’t experience any of those emotions on my wedding day….lol!  Still, I’m glad to have these tips for every day life!  Up until now, I have just focused on relaxed breathing, and the splotchiness always goes away in a couple minutes.

I dont’ know if it works, but I’ve heard that taking Prilosec OTC before hand helps….since this is a medication, check with your doctor about this before you do it.  There, now you can’t sue me!

I have a friend who had this same problem. First, you should DEFinitely see your dermatologist. There are a lot of things that can be done to help.

Second, there are some things that can make it worse: red wine, for example. Your derm can give you a complete list.

Good luck! You’ll find a solution!

Oohhhh….I suffer from "red face" syndrome as well, any time I am embarassed or have any attention focused on me.  So, you can imagine that I am a little nervous about this happening on the big day!

Good luck 🙂
