Ice will help with any swelling...good luck and no more washing!
OMG.........I'm crying right now!!!

I pray this will work, because i'm getting really depressed. I have a hair appointment tonight, so we will see if there is any improvement by the time i get home.

Seriously - take some advil or naproxen - it sounds like your skin is irritated and inflamed... sort of like what happens with waxing. I would skip tylenol/aspirin since they're not good at bringing swelling down but all those others should at least help.

I hope it clears up by tomorrow!

I agree to use a tinted moisturizer as well instead of all of the chemicals in the foundation.
Hopefully your skin had a chance to calm down overnight.
With some rest, you'll be refreshed and it will all work out. Good luck! I'm sending good face vibes your way!

changes are you could clear up by tomorrow so dont worry too much. i had an allergic reaction two a face wash when i was in HS and it lasted about 8 hours.
that is good advice to call the place that did it and ask if its common or if it will go away with a while or what..
i hope it clears up. IF NOT... you can photoshop the photos to look perfectly normal. so dont you worry
