A little impressed at how things are looking this morning despite how bad it seemed last night! I used this combo: honey mask, aloe, then covered with bandaid, the SLEEP! This morning when I took the bandaid of the worse spot by nose it was pink not red and a soft scab had formed I will be careful not to disturb! Right now I have the "sacred truth" mask from lush on that spot and another. It's full of honey and papaya and shea and other healing things!! Hopeful for when I have to put makeup on it will be fine!

I have been recovering from some picked areas. I grabbed some burn gel at the store and it has helped with the pain and redness. I like to use warm moist heat on my spots to draw anything out but my skin is so sensitive it makes everything worse. The burn gel has helped tremendously overnight.

Thank you for the reminder about burn gel...I have some called first degree and I used it last night and it works well at calming and healing over raw patches! I also used a papaya face mask from ultas brand....papaya along with the other ingredients is suppose to be good for healing and soothing and I have to say it helped a lot after I washed my face and then I just popped my hydrocolloids on and this morning I feel like all the spots are over that hump where it's easier from here!

What I do is concentrate mostly on the spots that I picked instead of putting foundation all over the face. So let's say I have a big pimple in the middle of my forehead that I picked. After washing my face and moisturizing, I will dab the extra moisturizer off and put a little face powder on it with a small brush. Think of it as primer. Then put concealer on top. Putting on concealer on top of powder makes it last better and longer. Then I take a big brush and just put powder all over my face. I think this method is good at covering up those bad spots and also does not leave you with the cakey, clumpy end of the day make up look.
