So you've gone out and forgotten to take Sunset before you started drinking, and you're a little redder than you'd like.
But wait, a camera!
Damn, that would be a great photo if you weren't redder than a fluorescent tomato.
Dealing with Asian Flush is hard, but it shouldn't ruin all your photos out with friends.
Fortunately, there's a foolproof way to get your flushed-face photos looking better in no time (in case you didn't take Asian flush pills ahead of time). All it takes is Photoshop (or any similar software that allows you to change the hue and saturation for an individual colour channel will work) and a few seconds once you know how.
Although Asian Flush, or alcohol flush reaction, can manifest in numerous symptoms, getting a red flushed face is the most common. Unfortunately, it's also the most visible symptom that is incredibly hard to hide.
Learning the root cause of your condition (ALDH2 deficiency) and finding an Asian blush cure is always going to be better than Photoshop, but we're here to help with some alternative options in the meantime.
Here's a quick video tutorial for fixing a photo with a single flushed face. We'll be updating this article with a few more examples and in-depth tutorials to show you how to mask and alter redness in images with several people soon, so make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel if that interests you!
How to Hide Asian Flush With Photoshop
Open the photo you'd like to change in Photoshop and duplicate the layer.
With the new layer selected, click on Hue/Saturation. "Master" will be selected as the default, but this needs to change to "Reds." This will allow you to change the hue/saturation of all reds in the photo, rather than the whole photo itself.
Using the Eyedroper, select the reddest part of the flushing you'd like to remove. Move the Saturation bar to the farthest right position to easily see what you'll be fixing. Then by using the slider icons, drag the slider to select all of the redness. When you're happy with your selection, return the Saturation bar to it's normal place in the centre.
You'll want to slightly increase the Lightness bar and then increase the Hue bar into the Blue section.
Duplicate the newly created layer until the redness is gone. You can go in and edit the sliders of the new duplicated layers to make sure the skin looks natural.
When you're happy with the newly reduced flushed cheeks, group those layers together (Command+G) then create a mask.
Using a black brush, paint over the lips to return them to their natural red colour. This will revert that area of the photo to its original state without reverting the rest of the photo to its original state.
And you're done! You're left with a great looking photo and only distant memories of getting a red face.
What About Using a Red Flush App?
Red flush apps are an excellent option for those suffering from Alcohol Flush Reaction (also known as Asian Flush).
Red Flush apps are just another way to edit your photos and hide that red face. However, some of these are designed to make it easy for people with this condition to track their alcohol consumption and monitor how much they can safely drink. The app also provides users with helpful tips on how to reduce the effects of Alcohol Flush Reaction, such as folllwing an ALDH2 deficient diet.
Another great feature of the Red Flush apps is that they help users track their progress over time. This helps them to better understand how their body reacts to alcohol and make adjustments accordingly. Additionally, the app can be used to set personal goals, such as reducing alcohol consumption or tracking how long red face from alcohol lasts.
Overall, Red Flush apps are a great tool for those suffering from alcohol flush reactions and can help them make more informed decisions about their alcohol consumption. But as mentioned earlier, you're not addressing the root cause of the issue with a red flush app. Here's a better way...
