I tripped up in the street yesterday and grazed my knees and landed on my chin, scraping it. Am going to a party tonight and not sure how to try and cover it up or whether to not try because then it may look like a huge spot! Sometimes concealer can make these things worse ... It feels quite rough. I have concealer, tinted moisturiser and mineral foundation ... What shall I try? (Just going to post photo on my profile now). Thanks!
Poor you. I know this is not what you want to hear but I'd leave well alone. Your skin needs to heel. Lots of bio oil once the skin has healed. I suppose if you are really desperate you could dust some face powder over it. If it helps I don't think it looks too bad on your photo.
Oh dear, I did this once, also just before a party. Best not to put anything on it, especially if it isn't properly healed over. Then in with the bio oil or similar when it has - I used Palmer's cocoa butter.
It really doesn't look too bad in the photo. Being mostly on the underside of your chin, people probably won't even notice.
Poor you! it really doesn't look so bad though, If I had to, I think Id try mineral foundation, but is that the liquid or powder kind? Ive got the powder kind and that is really good at covering things.
Thanks everyone it seems to be getting darker as the day progresses! I know I will feel self concious especially as it is a party where we won't really know anyone except the friend whose 30th it is. We have hotel booked and everything! Oh well at least I am not going on my own and going with DP. I might try a bit of mineral powder foundation as it is not an open wound and I don't think the powder has any nasty stuff in it. I don't have bio oil but we have vitamin e cream, is that similar?
