I'm getting married tomorrow. Got this nasty nerve breakouts (three of them) on my right cheek. I've been doing aspirin mask a couple of times this week and will do one last mask tonight.

They're pretty much dry (thank goodness!!) but they are still red. I applied pevonia propolis concentrate at night to help with the redness. Any suggestion what to do on the day if it's still red??

Thanks heaps!

There was a recent post of beauty tips from beauty queens and one of them was a suggestion to apply toothpaste (the paste kind not the gel) to your blemish overnight to reduce the swelling and redness. I've never tried it but I've heard this tip a few times before - might be worth a shot.

Congratulations I hope you have a wonderful wedding day.

Now leave the pimples alone, there is not much that can be done to reduce them now, maybe a little Lavender Essential Oil would soothe the area. A good concealer should cover the area and make it barely noticeable.

Congrats to you. It is your big day, no one will be looking at or thinking of a couple spots on your face. You will look gorgeous!. Try this...Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Dab on the spot a couple times throughout the evening. I will help dry it up and take the red out as well.

Have a wonderful Day! Very Happy

Congratulations! Your happiness will show and you'll look beautiful!

I know you are still nervous and concerned about the spot and I don't know if it works or not, but I've heard Visine drops for eyes will take the red out of pimples for a few hours.

HTH's!

Hiya! thanks for all the tips!! my skin looked so much better on the wedding day (probably cuz I slept good and I was more relaxed) and the makeup artist was excellent, she made me look and feel so pretty.

Thanks again! you guys are great!
