How do you cover up or get rid of a burn mark?

so i got burned with a cig on my face an i want it gone so bad!

Neosporin until soreness goes; then aloe. May be this is a sign you should stop smoking!

Because I tend to rush around in the kitchen a lot, I am constantly burning myself. Neosporin is in every room!

apple cider vinegar diluted with water works great for any scar for me. (also acne scars) just don't forget to dilute it before applying on your skin.

I dont know do they sell this at your country(Im from Turkey) but use Contractubex. It is a little bit expensive but it works really good.(In case of if they are not selling this in your country, I am writing what's in it. You can tell to Pharmacy and they can help you. It writes it contains Extractum Cepae, IU Heparin, Allantoin.)

You should moisturize the area, and apply 100% aloe vera gel every day. You could also buy a scar removal creme like Mederma.

To get rid use neosporin and actually make up can wear off so use corstarch with a little bit of your skin color eyeshadow.

I'm more concerned about the manner in which the burn occurred. If it was intentional then perhaps help beyond topical medication or makeup is needed.

You can cover a burn mark with a band-aid and put some burn cream on it.

Buring is very unhealthy for the skin. I am guessing you live in Florida. Some sunscreen will do the job. Please try NOT to get cancer.

You put a rug over it, hiding things under a rug always works out.

Aloe vera is a great healer of burns, however it works a lot better when it first occurs. I cut off a small stem, remove the meat and place it on my cut or burn with a band-aid. Since the burn is on your face, you can use the band-aid at night, however, it would be best to keep the area free of any make up. I hope it was an accident. Good luck.

The richly pigmented Microskin is a personalized cosmetic. We scan a bit of your healthy skin tone (a totally harmless and non-invasive scan), and we custom make you your burn concealing makeup. It is a perfect match, so once you apply it using either of our two methods, it will completely get rid of burn marks. You can apply Microskin in one of two ways.

*the airbrush method: This is generally ideal for bigger areas of the body. You use an airbrush machine to spray on your new liquid skin.

*the stippling method: Best for smaller areas of the body, you take a stippling sponge and apply Microskin to the exact location you want to camouflage burn marks.

Once Microskin is on, it will last for up to a week. Microskin is great for burns, because burns are generally drier than other types of skin. The drier the skin yields even more long-lasting results. You can bathe and shower normally with Microskin on, as it is waterproof. You can even exercise and wear clothes freely without worry, as Microskin is sweat-proof and budge-resistant as well. It will not come off on fabrics or other people you come into contact with.
