I have had, since puberty, around 13 years of age, red cheeks and oily skin. I get pimples when I am stressed out and when not, my skin, including that of my cheeks mellows in color to the hue that is prominent but not cheekwise. However, I am seeking a permanent solution to my red cheeks, which my doctor said was perhaps rosatia. however, since the redness of my cheeks does tend to dissipate when i am in warmer climates, sweating alot and keeping clean i am inclined to think that it is something else like alot of small white heads and after shaving, in a bright light it seems that way, because the skin looks bumpy.
I have used proactive, unsuccessfully and now I just use a gentle facewash, burts bee's, with aveeno moisturizer. In the cold the skin tends to peel or dry up. i shower, irregularly, maybe everyday or if not every 2 days.
