Hi, Im 35 and I have noticed that my skin gets flushed and is often red in appearance, I have never been this way, and my cheeks feel like sandpaper no matter how much I moisturize, my pores seemed to have all opened up especially around my nose, chin, cheeks by my nose, almost everywhere. Nothing burns or hurts, its just embarrassing and even foundation doesn't work for me as far as makeup because it just pools up in the enlarged pores and looks hideous. What is happening to me? Just hormones is what my doctor says but I dont know anyone in my family who has this problem. I don't want people to even look me in the face.
Any clues?? Thanks in advance
