Stop using all of it. You can use over the counter Hydrocortisone cream, but it still will take a few days to go away

Both retinA and hydroquinone can be very irritating to the skin. RetinA also makes your skin sensitive to the sun. If you stop using these creams the redness should go away on its own.
