@Cornmuffin09:  Clinique and Aveeno both have product lines that help address red/blotchy skin.

@Cornmuffin09:  Well personally I swear by Clinique… I go back to their products time and time again if I ever decide to try something new! I always have some of their products in my repetoire (like the Dramatically Different lotion) I haven’t actually tried the redness relief ones, though.

If you can’t get to a dermatologist, and you don’t think you have a serious condition, you may want to go to a trusted spa and get a sensitive skin facial.  A lot of aesthiticians have experience dealing with tricky skin conditions and may be able to give you advice.  They also may try to sell you expensive products, so be on on the lookout!

You might be allergic toyour laundry soap. Can you get to an allergist? Also, your body temp elivates rather quickly when we wake up (and flushes when angry) and could just be your body’s way of blushing.

Try taking a benedryl before bed and see if it changes the next morning and go from there. Plus, you’ll sleep like a baby! 😉

@Cornmuffin09:  

Since you mentioned its mostly when you first wake up I would start by looking at your bedding. It may be that the fabric of the pillows or sheets is irritating your skin. It could also be a laundry detergent residue bothering you. Do you wash your face with a specific cleanser at night that could be irritating it? Or use any lotion? Also is your room very dry? I know our room gets horribly dry when we have the heat or air on and I’ll wake up with a red chapped face if I forget to turn on the humidifier. While waiting for the dermatologist, I would try to eliminate any enviormental causes. So wash face with a very gentle soap before bed, if Using lotion use one for sensitive skin, try a laundry detergent for sensitive skin like all free and clear or ivory snow and possibly try different pillow cases.

Sounds like Rocasea to me.  Or overly sensitive skin. I have both. Use Dove sensitive bar soap. I just started using it, works wonders. I’ve also been using Regenerist day cream.

I know of some otc products that are really great for sensitive skin (cetaphil soap, Lush’s Celestial moisturizer and Bare Minerals makeup come to mind).  But I’d encourage you to see that dermatologist anyway – there’s so many different things that could be going on, it’d be helpful to get her/his expert opinion and eliminate at least a few variables.  When I had better health insurance, I used this sulphur facewash (the smell went away instantly when I rinsed it off) and Finacea, a topical cream that helped prevent acne and clear up redness/rosacea.  (Which I know you don’t think you have, and neither do I really, but this stuff still works awesome).  Best of luck! 🙂

I haven’t been to a dermatologist, but I have blotchy skin at times.  Due to a family history of autoimmune disorders, I’m thinking it’s either eczema or psoriasis.  Either way, it doesn’t flare up all the time, and when it does, I use mineral powder to cover it up.  I have gotten some for less that $15 at Wal-Mart, and it works great!
