  • If you have causasian skin can you get some Top Care Brand (supermarket brand for sure, maybe cvs or riteaid) Calamine Lotion -it dries super super fast and is very easy to apply in small amounts -in fact I use it to down play facial aging darkness -when I wear it my lines around my mouth are less noticeable.

    If you have African American skin try getting some dark liquid makeup any brand - and just lightly dab some on.

    gotta laugh at your horror - I once shaved my moustache (years before I discovered Top Care Calamine Lotion) and thought I'd stopped the bleeding from niking myself - well right after that I had to go pick up pizza from my fav place for my kid's school party -went in and came out and checked myself- ahhhhhhhhhh i was still bleeding!!!!!!!

  • Get ice on it NOW!!!

    After 10 minutes of ice, put a few drops of Visine eye drops on the skin. This causes redness to go away. It will actually constrict your blood vessels.

    Do NOT use powder make up over it. It'll make it look flaky and gross. DAB on some liquid make up with a sponge very lightly.

    Take the Visine with you in your purse. Excuse yourself after 1 hour to reapply. Even if you don't seem red yet, reapply the Visine. Drink plenty of water while you are on this date. If you drink too much alcohol you could get red faced all over.

  • call and cancel your date because that is never going to clear in an hour. Your lucky if it will clear by morning!
