Re: Reduce the Redness

Try aloe vera, I've not personally used it but many people have gotten great results of it.

Re: Reduce the Redness

Yes. I totally agree with the aloe vera comment. I started using the aloe vera gel and the redness as well as pimple was significantly reduced within 3 days.

Re: Reduce the Redness

I read the following in an article from DermaDoctor:
"Once you’ve dried it out, it’s time to cover it up. One of the trade secrets of makeup artists who work on movie stars is Visine. The same stuff that “gets the red out” of your eyes can help get the red out of your face. After you’ve done your best to dry out the pimple, soak a cotton swab in Visine. Then hold the swab to the affected area for about ten seconds. The redness will disappear."
I've tried it off and on. It's not immediately noticable, but the redness does go away.

Re: Reduce the Redness

Another option is to hold an ice cube against the spot for about a minute. This will reduce swelling and redness. Quick and easy fix if you are going out.
