Attack of the Red


If you love the cold weather, then you’re probably ready for all the pesky annoyances that come with it. Cold weather brings stuffy noses, dry coughs, and the permanent blush. When all the blood rushes to your face after you step in from the cold, you may look like you’re boiling over. If you are fair-skinned, you’re probably familiar with this effect, but don’t think it can’t happen to you if your skin is darker.

Rosy cheeks look youthful and innocent, but an entirely red face is not pretty. There are lots of reasons your face may become overly ruddy. Rosacea, a change in temperature, or an embarrassing moment can bring the red out. You may even find that the color doesn’t go away. If this happens, then you may want to add some of these products to your beauty closet.
