1. Don't use hydrogen peroxide. It damages healing tissue.

2. Cool compresses (stick wet washcloth in freezer for a few minutes and rest on face)

3. Moisturize and then leave your skin alone to recover.

I'm using witchhazel 81% gel. Is that okay?

You should not put anything on your skin besides a moisturizer and cool washcloth until the redness is gone. :) Patience, young grasshopper. Irritated and annoyed skin doesn't go away within seconds, but it will go away.
