Hi
So I did a face mask today....turmeric,yogurt and apple cider vinegar.
I have done this before minus the acv and it worked just fine so today I thought i'd ad acv because it works for pimples/zits and now my face is burning and red :cry:
I splashed my face with cold water so it's not burning anymore but when I touch my face it's so warm and red! And I've gotten more zits!

What should I do now!? I have to be somewhere important tomorrow and I don't want to look like this...I can't use any make up because I don't have any and that's because my face is allergic to make up! And it couldn't cover this anyway because the pimples stick out.

Any home remedies to get rid of pimples and redness? I'm desperate :(

    Don't put ANYTHING else on your face today...just apply a light moisturizer and let your face heal/rest. Likely, the redness will go away on its on. As far as the pimples, nothing is going to get rid of them by tomorrow. And adding anything else will likely inflame your skin more and make the redness and stinging more intense.

    I know that's not what you want to hear, but I hope your skin calms down and gets better.

    I agree with this. Anything you try putting on to get rid of the zits will make your face get more irritated. It sucks, but you have to ride it out for a few days. I usually resort to a bit of makeup when I feel like my face looks terrible. I use mineral makeup, which doesn't irritate my skin and doesn't make me break out.

    Taking a benadryl will help with the inflammation...it will make up sleepy tho.

    have you been tested by a dermatologist for your skin allergies. I went through dozens of make ups before I found one that I wasn't allergic to. I'm even allergic to the bare minerals original (although i've heard the matte has better results for sensitive skin)

    It sounds like you have contact dermatitis. I have very sensitive skin and get this quite a bit.

    Contact dermatitis - PubMed Health

    Irritant dermatitis
    is the most common type. It's caused by contact with acids, alkaline materials
    such as soaps and detergents,
    fabric softeners, solvents, or other chemicals. The reaction usually looks like
    a burn.

    Treatment includes washing with lots of water to remove any traces of the
    irritant that may remain on the skin. You should avoid further exposure to known
    irritants or allergens.


    In some cases, the best treatment is to do nothing to the area.


    Emollients or moisturizers help keep the skin moist, and also help skin
    repair itself. They protect the skin from becoming inflamed again. They are a
    key part of preventing and treating contact dermatitis.


    Corticosteroid skin creams or ointments may reduce inflammation. Carefully
    follow the instructions when using these creams. Overuse, even of low-strength
    over-the-counter products, may cause a skin condition.


    Along with, or instead of corticosteroids, your health care provider may
    prescribe drugs called tacrolimus
    ointment or pimecrolimus cream to use on the skin.


    In severe cases, corticosteroid pills may be needed. You will start them on a
    high dose, which is tapered gradually over about 12 days. You may also receive a
    corticosteroid shot.


    Wet dressings and soothing anti-itch (antipruritic) or drying lotions may be
    recommended to reduce other symptoms.

    My response might be too late, but HTH.
