UGH! I was cooking supper tonight and boiling water splattered up an hit me in the forehead. I have a smallish (1/2 inch) but very noticable blister (which burst) on my forehead, & my wedding is a week and a half away!
Does anyone have some tips on helping it heal as fast as possible? The better it heals, the easier it’ll be to cover with makeup…

@urchin: Avoid sun exposure and make sure it doesn’t get infected!

Polysporin, air, vitamin E concentrated oil or a vitamin E capsule (liquid) broken and rubbed in…clean with cool water…keep dry.

Is there a chance your make-up artist can airbrush it? And, then maybe your photographer can photoshop it? I’ve heard of this being done for people with facial scabs and scars.

@priyathescientist: I’m actually doing my own makeup…but I should be able to cover it if it heals up by next Saturday!
Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I will take all your advice and put it to work!

Aloe will help it heal quicker, and I think zinc actually does too! Good luck! It should heal up enough by Saturday to at least cover with a good cover-up!

I have a cream called “Cicaplast” by La Roche Posay, it speeds up skin recovery after injuries (I think they even prescribe it to people after chemical peels). You can apply it twice a day and it really helps hydrating the area to heal it faster and not get those dry, flaky bits. I think it also prevents scarring. It comes in a little tube that lasts for ages, so if you get flaky skin in the winter, you can use that too, also on you lips 🙂 And you can apply make-up over it, it’s a great primer.
