Tired of looking like you’re embarrassed—or worse, drunk—24/7? Here are some easy ways to make your cheeks less rosy.

To complete this How-To you will need:

A dermatologist
Cleanser with oat extracts or green tea
Moisturizer with feverfew
A washcloth
Cold milk
A photofacial
Makeup primer
Green-tinted foundation
Antihistamines

Step 1: See a dermatologist

See a dermatologist to make sure the redness isn’t a symptom of disease or a skin condition like rosacea or telangiectasia. You could also simply have a naturally ruddy complexion.

Step 2: Clean with oats and tea

Wash your face with a cleanser that contains oat extract, which is an antihistamine, or green tea, which can help reduce the capillary dilation that leads to blotchy skin.

Step 3: Use the right moisturizer

Use a moisturizer containing feverfew, an herb that helps lessen redness.

Step 4: Use the right makeup

Women can downplay a ruddy complexion by applying a primer followed by green-tinted foundation. The primer helps the makeup adhere to the skin, and the green tint camouflages redness.

Step 5: Milk it

Calm redness from wind or exertion by soaking a washcloth in ice-cold milk and laying it on your face for 10 minutes. The milk’s proteins, fat, amino acids, and vitamin A all help reduce redness.

Tip: If your face becomes beet-red after exercising and stays that way for hours, take an antihistamine after you finish your workout.

Step 6: Use this emergency fix

If you have a special event that a blotchy face is threatening to ruin, apply some one-half percent hydrocortisone, which is available over the counter. It will temporarily reduce the redness. Just don’t do it often or it will thin your skin.

Step 7: Try a trick

Try this trick: Put an ice cube in your mouth and press it against the roof of your mouth. Receptors that respond to cold constrict blood vessels in your face, which is enough to reduce redness for some people.

Tip: Hot foods—both temperature-wise and spice-wise—and alcohol exacerbate facial ruddiness by dilating blood vessels.

Step 8: Have a photofacial

Ask a dermatologist about a “photofacial,” a procedure that reduces facial redness by zapping the red pigment in blood vessels under the skin’s surface with a high-intensity light pulse.

The Skinny On Asian Lotions/Hydrating Toners

Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in the Asian skincare regimen. Asian women believe that a “watery”, radiant complexion makes a crucial base for good makeup and their secret to achieving that? Applying lotion religiously.

Unlike the regular moisturizers that we call lotion here in the US, “lotion” (化妝水) is a hydrating toner that should be applied after cleansing and before moisturizer. While some people argue that toners are redundant and just another marketing gimmick, I personally can’t live without them. My rationale? If your skin is dehydrated and you slap on layers and layers of moisturizers, they will just sit on top of your skin and not get absorbed. But if you use a hydrating toner to soften the top layer of your skin first, it will help any moisturizer or treatment that follows to penetrate better into your skin.

The Proper Way To Apply Lotion/Toner

1. Pour the toner onto a piece of cotton pad and make sure the cotton pad is completely saturated with toner.

2. Apply in a patting motion until the cotton pad is dry.

3. Massage the toner into your skin and gently press the palm of your hands onto your face for a few seconds to help your skin absorb the toner.

A good hydrating toner also makes the perfect hydrating mask that is great through out the year.

Rosewater
This can be found in a lot of skincare products and its well-known moisturizing and soothing properties makes it the perfect toner for all skin types. You can also find rosewater at most drugstores for less than $10. I highly recommend you ladies give this a shot.
