I have been putting cold compresses on it and lots of vitamin E and omega oils ..does antioxidant help the healing process..should I continue to use moisturizer?

welcome to healthcare magic forum
you have irritant contact dermatitis
over face due to wax
it is common when done without prior patch test
better to consult dermatologist
for recovery of it you need to take and apply steroidal medicine for short time
do not worry as it is temporary and will go out without any mark
apply good moisturizer and avoid sun exposure ,do not peel your skin by hand
i hope i answered your question .

HI, Thanks for posting your query

I under stand your concern for speedy healing . YOU may try the following

Continue cold compresses and moisturiser
YES, antioxidants will help in healing

Apply topical steroid cream like momatosone cream twice a day just over the area involved

Oral predinisolone 20 mg for 2 days after breakfast , then 10 mg for next 2 days

use very mild cleanser like cetaphil face wash

Avoid any other parlour activity

Since your wedding is very near, take this treatment by contacting a dermatologist

Hope this helps you
All the best
