You need to see a doctor. Doesn't sound good. How long has it been like this?

By what you're describing, it sounds like rosacea. My mom has it, but just to be sure, consult a dermatologist. Cover Fx foundation is meant to cover up redness from sensitive skin issues like rosacea. It's oil free and lightweight, but still has great coverage. They sell it at Shopper's Drugmart/Pharmaprix.

Wonderful advice to follow in the comments!

Alongside the foundation that was recommended, you should pick up a green-tinted concealer. Maybelleine and Revlon both have them in a cream stick (looks similar to a lipstick) that runs you about $3-$6CAD. Clinique has a green-tinted, moisturizing base/primer that works for all-over coverage and colour correction. These are also found at Shopper's Drug Mart, PharmaPlus, and other drugstores.



The green tint is meant to blockade any redness, pinkness, purpleness in your skin tone as it is the natural opposite of these colours. If the lines are as prevalent as you've described, using a concealer will definitely give that extra boost to your cover-up that will hide them completely! Tinted concealers are worn beneath the foundation, not above or blended.

Good luck :-)

I came here to say this. I think you'll be on the right track if you neutralize the redness with the green.

Use a good primer, concealer (I use MAC) and then a foundation (I use Mac as well) and then a powder and translucent powder/setting powder to finish.

Forgot to mention... my mom also uses Aveeno's Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser as well as a topical cream called Prosacea, which you can both find at Shopper's DrugMart. LaRoche Posay products are also great for calming skin. A little more on the expensive side but well worth it.

In terms of diet, try to avoid spicy foods and alcohol as they make the condition even worse.
