Clinique! All the way. I also use Smashbox foundation primer that is soothing (it comes in purple.) Supposedly their green primer clears redness, but never did for me.

I’ve been using caudalie vinoperfect radiance serum.  It’s supposed to lighten blemishes and redness.  I use it mostly as a moisturizer.  I like it a lot, but it’s quite expensive at $79/bottle.

Are you talking about long term or just for the wedding? Long term, def. go see your derm. Looks like your wedding is in July so I’m not sure I’d start lazer peels yet because it take a while for the skin to heal – my Maid/Matron of Honor had this done to her shoulder.

I have really red skin and I’ve had good luck with Elocon (prescrip) and the moisturizer CeraVe (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) that my Derm recently had me try – I love it!

For the day of the wedding, there’s always medical makeup, and sometimes makeup artists have a small coverup stick that looks like green lipstick – you put it on before regular coverup and/or foundation and it counteracts the red. Good luck! 🙂

Definitely see a dermatologist.. They can give you better advice specific to your skin type with possibly more effective solutions, that could possibly be covered by insurance! I’ve always had redness on my cheeks and all over my face, and recently I’ve noticed some red dots that just won’t go away (like broken blood vessels). My derm told me I probably have the beginnings of rosacea and prescribed me a lotion that (with my insurance and prescription plan) only cost me $3.

Maybe this won’t be helpful to you… I took have acne scars, and ongoing acne issues, I also have general redness (sort of a glowing effect from years of acne… yay 🙁

Lately I’ve been using Yes to Tomatoes facewash and face lotion, and it has really reduced my redness! Also using 10% Benzoyl Peroxide pretty much all over my face every night hels resolve any new breakouts really fast and minimize new scarring. It even seems to help with older scars, healing them faster. Burt’s Bees also has a tomato face wash.

And, I use mineral powder (from a local company — it’s only minerals, no added crap) and Aveda tinted moisterizer. I’m not a huge makeup person, but for my wedding day I’ll experiment ahead of time with green-tinter coverup for balance.

I haven’t used any of those items, but I stand behind Neutragina’s products 100%! I’ve always used Neutragina products & they’ve always helped. I’ve used Neautragina face products & it always helps me within a week. My Fiance had scalp issues for years & used a speical Neutragina shampoo & it fixed his scalp thing overnight. So I say try the Neautragina :). Hope it helps ya!
