"The best-possible scenario," explains Dana Wood, "is to have your dermatologist on speed-dial; he or she can inject the pimple with cortisone and it will shrink immediately. If that isn't an option, your main objective is to try to reduce the redness as much as possible and then conceal, conceal, conceal. For redness: If you have a few hours, dab on old-school white toothpaste, make sure it contains mint, and leave it on for as long as possible. If you're pressed for time, dab on Visine. To cover: Definitely use a concealer that doubles as an acne remedy and use a little powder from time to time to matte it down.
