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.

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.
