From your history it appears to be rosacea. Stop applying fair and lovely as it's not suiting you. Use sunscreen daily in morning & afternoon. Use stole or umbrella when out in sun to cover face. Use soap free cleanser like cetaphil for daily use instead of soaps and harsh face washes. Avoid self medication. Avoid spicy or hot foodstuffs and beverages. Seek consultation from a dermatologist for specific skin care regime. Hope this helps.
