In honor of today's sunburn from my laziness at the lake, let me enlighten you about the easiest way to turn your redness into an appropriate skin tone for public appearances.
If you have a light or medium skin tone and your face happens to be any sort of pink hue, try using a green to neutralize the color. NYC had a great cover stick you can pick up at any neighborhood drug store. One little stick of mint green, blended conservatively into your redness will turn that face back into the peachy color you began with....or a bit more tan. But acceptable, none the less!
