So I've got this really bad flakey red chapped spot on my left cheek and it's so embarrassing and soo hard to cover up. Does anyone have any tips I can use? Right now I'm using BB cream and concealer but it seems like nothing is working. Please help!
If I were you I would avoid putting makeup on it at all. I know it feels awful to have to walk around with something on your face, I've had to deal with acne for years. But that looks very raw and sensitive. I would put an antibiotic ointment of some kind on it and leave it alone for a few days. When its calmed down a bit you can try a green primer, concealer or powder to neutralize some of the redness and then use a medium to full coverage concealer.
I would strongly recommended seeing a dermotologist, you need to solve the problem not cover it up with makeup. :)
Try tattoo liquid foundation by Kay Von dee

I completely agree. Your makeup is only going to look as good as your skin so fix the problem first- go see a dermatologist.

Thanks guys. I've been putting lotion on at night but that's all. I've got a dermatologist appt on the 11th (:
That's a shame, I had to deal with very bad acne at a young age. I thought mac studio fix would hide it but looking back on photos it looks terrible! So just keep ur skin fresh and nothing on it until it heals :-) be strong & confident
Neosporin will help that. Wash your face very well, without making your face bleed. Place neo on it, and let dry. Don't pick at it!
i wouldnt put moisturizer on it. let it breathe

Use some hydrocortisone on it. Any drugstore carries it. I recommend the ointment not the cream. It helps with irritation as well as redness. Use sparingly. Works like a charm.
