My face is red all the time. It looks like I have sunburn and the skin is very sensitive, even after I have a simple facial or even just wash my face with a facial cleanser like Olay. It gets very red and reactive for a few hours. Is there a treatment for this?

You will need to hydrate your body first by drinking plenty of waters every day at pat some potato slice to your skin. Potatoes have been known as a pain reliever throughout the years, working particularly well on minor skin irritations and soothing scratches, bites, and burns, as well as possibly reducing inflammation.

The best treatment for sunburn I have ever heard is aloe vera gel. It is popular for its healing properties. Massage over the affected area for 2-3 minutes with aloe vera gel and leave it for 15 minutes. Sunburn will banish in some days. Aloe vera suits all skin types,

scorpio has a good point. Also you might want to go see a dermatologist. If this hasn't been going on always it could be something you changed, ie soap, food, detergent, lotion. Hope that helps.

sounds like rosacea with reactive redness. Have you seen a dermatologist?

Having the same problems, I have started to apply pure chimp super cleanser and my skin is smooth and clear now. They are natural and handmade in UK and cost not much.
