Right so this is a little embarrassing but basically I had some hair above my lip and a bit of hair between my eyebrows. I thought if i shaved it, it would go stubbly. So what i did was i applied hair removal cream ,from Avon, in those areas. After i washed it off, it was quite sore. I looked in the mirror and where i had put the cream was all red.
Any ideas on how to cure it or evenjust to get the red-ness to tone down a little ?

Was the hair removal cream designed for the face or the body?

If it's very sore, possibly a chemical burn/ bad reaction. Best thing you can do is keep the area clean and apply something light and soothing (aloe vera). Avoid makeup until it heals most of the way.

In future, always do a small patch test close to the area of desired application. Also best method of hair removal on the face is by waxing.

Remove cream with cold cloth, Whip out the old Vaseline. It gets rid of all the symptoms straight up!!! Just in case use a 1% cream x
