See your doctor for evaluation and advice as facial redness may be caused by a disease such as Rosacea for which topical metronidozole and oral oxytetracycline may be indicated.
There are some good over the counter products for facial redness.
Clinique have a new Redness Solutions range which soothes redness and reduces the appearance of red facial veins. It is a bit expensive but is widely available in stores and online.
La Roche-Posay makes a good range for facial redness called Rosaliac. These are available from selected Boots stores in the UK and online.
Eucerin also make a less expensive range called Redness Relief.
I suffered with facial redness whilst on oral isotretinoin therapy, and found these products helpful.

It may also be helpful to identify what triggers the redness.
Potential triggers for facial redness are extremes of temperature, caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, foods high in histamines and hot food or beverages.
Use bland cosmetic such as those by La Roche-Posay or Eucerin.
Ask your doctor whether taking an anti-histamine such as Piriton (chlorpehnamine maleate) would be of benefit to you.
