I’ve always had it. Maybe it’s because I live in the Midwest. No I don’t have a cold. I just bought Dickinson’s Witch Hazel (not that I’m expecting it to help) and I moisturize frequently. Are there any specific products to make it go away or allievate some redness?

I have the same condition! I just cover it in fountain or concealer when I go out.
According to WebMD, it’s a case of Rosacea:
Facial flushing that comes and goes may be rosacea, a chronic skin disorder that affects about 14 million Americans. “If you poke the red area with your finger and let go quickly, the redness will fade and then return rapidly as blood flows back into the area,” says dermatologist Hilary Baldwin, M.D., president of the American Acne and Rosacea Society. Over time, pimples may appear, the skin may itch, and blood vessels may become visible.
The fix: Try using green-tinted makeup, or apply an over-the-counter (OTC) anti-inflammatory lotion that contains licorice extract (such as Eucerin Redness Relief) or feverfew (like Aveeno Ultra-Calming). If the redness doesn’t go away, your doctor may prescribe doxycycline, an antibiotic that in low doses diminishes inflammation, or an anti-inflammatory cream such as Metrogel or Finacia. Visible blood vessels usually require laser therapy. It’s also important to avoid rosacea triggers — common ones are sun, heat, red wine, cocoa, chili, and hard cheeses.
I consume so much cocoa and cheese haha should probably cut back on those.

Yeah I cover it with foundation and concealer obviously but it’s super annoying! Chocolate and cheese, yes yes!
