Dr. Neal Schultz: Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz and welcome to DermTV. So, what do you do when the phone rings, and all of a sudden you have three day of notice for a rally important meeting, interview, date or party? And you just need your face to look its very best, whether the issue is a facial rash, acne, dull skin, facial decoloration or lines or wrinkles? I'm going to give you today, some at-home quick fixes on what you can do and in another episode I'll give in office quick fixes. Let's start, which is the facial rash. The best way to treat this is with milk and water compresses three to four times a day, followed by over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream. If you need help with the compresses, see Derm TV episode 15 at-home remedies for irritated Skin. For dull skin or for acne breakouts, using Exfoliant with either 2% Salicylic or Glycolic everyday to get rid of the dead cells that are causing both the dull skin and also the dead cells in the pores that are actually contributing to the acne breakouts. For the actual pimples, you can an over-the-counter 5% benzoyl peroxide or resorcinol sulfer preparation like resimade to put actually a very small amount on the pimples twice a day. The day of the event, if you still have some red discoloration from your rash or from your pimples, get an oil and water skin type appropriate foundation to help cover those up. If you are having trouble in covering the redness, get one with the green tint and that green will hide the red immediately. Two to three hours before the event, try a wrinkle plumper, which will help take away fine lines and wrinkles and if you don't want to use that, you can just try rubbing the area with the wrinkles. For about 20 or 30 seconds, firmally with Vaseline or just a Moisteriser, it acquires a little bit of swelling, which will take away those lines from wrinkles for a couple of hours. On the way into the event, if you a little extra oil takes out some blotting paper and remove the oil with blotting paper. And for the guys, on the day of your event, shave just with the grain. Don't shave against the grain, you won't get as close with your shave, but you can be sure that you won't get any irritation. Good luck and have fun. Please join me again at dermtv.com.
