My face is red

My face is red all over. It has always been red. For years I've always thought it's my natural skin colour. But then I started a complete and good skincare routine about a year ago and when I wake up in the morning my skin glows and it's not red. However, as time goes it turns red again in the day. What can be the cause of the redness? How can I get rid of it?

Some people just have a ruddy complexion.  Some ethnic groups are more likely to have this than others, and you might be in one of those groups.  There is also a condition called rosacea which can cause the face to look red, but it's usually splotchy.  I don't know of any cure for it, however.  Could also be an augmented sensitivity to the sun.  People with red hair and fair skin often have ruddy faces.
