If you have a rash or breakout because of a skin care product, do not make it worse by trying to cover up redness with cosmetics. This will only further irritate the skin.
Instead, wash with a gentle, sensitive skin cleanser. Then, do a gentle steam for about 10 minutes before moisturizing. This process should help to calm some of the redness. However, time is the only way to be completely rid of the irritation. Piling on products will only make your skin look worse.
